Essential WordPress Plugins

October 14, 2009

If you wanted to set up your own site without professional-level web developer help, WordPress is a very nice tool, and has some nice templates available, although you have to be careful not to go overboard installing every plugin under the sun … because then your site could suddenly go blank, and you won’t know how to fix it. And then you’ll need technical assistance anyway. This *does* happen, so if you do install WordPress, here are the essential plugins I would recommend;

  • All in One SEO Pack or Yoast SEO
  • Google Analytics for WordPress
  • Google XML Sitemaps
  • Sociable
  • WP-SpamFree
  • WP Super Cache.
