3 Essential WordPress Plugins

3 Essential WordPress Plugins

 

Before you can even worry about plugins for your WordPress site, you need to have a good affiliate site set up and running.
What good does it do you to know you need a good blog if you don’t know what tools need to be in place to make it one of the best blogs around?
That’s where plugins come in–showing you how to develop the content you need to create a blog that’s perfect in as many ways as possible.
In today’s newsletter, I want to show you not only why plugins are such amazing tools for any website, but why you’re going to want to have these 6 plugins in particular set up and ready to go from day one.
1. WordPress Plugin Akismet – If you create a blog, you can guarantee that it will receive spam. It is one of those rules of the Internet that you just can’t get around.
But, rather than wasting hours sifting through spam to find the real comments and approve them, you can use Akismet, along with an API key from wordpress.org, to sort out your spam automatically.
This plugin actually comes along with your basic WordPress installation. You’ll need to activate it by getting your API and setting it up.
I highly recommend you do this. It will save you a great deal of time.

2. WordPress Plugin Yoast SEO – SEO is the foundation of everything we do on the Internet, and a blog is especially well suited to being search engine friendly.
However, if you don’t have a good plugin to insert meta descriptions and keywords and keep all of your permalinks straight, things can start to fall between the cracks when you upload content.
3. WordPress Plugin Google XML Sitemaps – You need to make sure Google is indexing every page as often as possible. Google XML Sitemaps will  automatically create a new sitemap whenever new content is posted and send it to the search spiders.
This is a must-have tool for a site like a blog that has new content added to it on a regular basis. Manually creating sitemaps just isn’t feasible for this kind of content production.
WordPress may be one of the best blogging platforms on the planet, but it’s also open-source, which means that you can always make it better.
If you’re not taking advantage of this wide array of tools, you are missing out!
