8 "Must Have" WordPress Plugins for website


8 "Must Have" WordPress Plugins for website

In this article we are going to cover the perfect SEO setup for WordPress.

These 8 plugins will help your websites to skyrocket your ratings and traffic. 

In order to rank your site there are some factors to follow i.e. user experience, on-page SEO, site speed, mobile-friendliness, internal link structure,and structured mark-ups. 

All these things impact your website ranking and there are hundreds of other factors. 

There is over 200 factors that Google includes in their algorithm,

In this article I am going to share with you.
These plugins will help you do all of these things.

W3 Total Cache.

Look, load time is super important,especially because people are using mobile devices now.Yes, there's 4G, there's 5G, you know, LTE, whatever you wind up calling it,but the problem with mobile devices is if you are in a place that does not have the best reception you are not going to load websites really fast. The W3 Total Cache plugin ensures that your site will load as fast as you possibly can. It will improve load times. It will help you connect with CDNs, it makes better use of your server resources so that way your server doesn't have to continue to push the same content over and over again. Instead it caches it so it can deliver it to the user as quick as possible, and if you have a really good hosting provider they have caching built in, but most of the hosting providers that I have seen do not have caching built in, hence I am recommending the W3 Total Cache plugin.

Smush Image Compression.

If you are creating blog content you are on a WordPress blog, there is a good chance you at least have a blog article or two, and in that blog article what do you think you are including? Images right, if you are not you should change that and go add images right away.
The Smush Image Compression plugin,
what this does is ensures that your images still look really good and quality, so that way when someone looks at them they do not look all pixelated and fuzzy, they still look really sharp, but this decreases the size of the image
in which I am talking about the server size, right,
that hard drive space that it is taking up,
so when people ping your site it loads much faster.

Yoast SEO plugin.

It does everything from on-page optimization,
controlling your meta tags, your title tags.
It even analyzes your content, telling you if you're doing a good job or a bad job. It creates sitemaps for you,
helps with structure and markup.
It does pretty much what most things
that you need if you want to ensure
that your WordPress blog is SEO-friendly.
Now look, WordPress out of the box is pretty SEO-friendly,
Now Google wants you to do every little thing right,
and when you combine them all that is when you see
the climb in ranking, the extra search traffic,
and this plugin will really help you get there. 


If your website gets hacked, you rankings and traffic will tank,
and when it tanks and you fix it it is hard to recover.
Sucuri helps you, helps prevent you from getting hacked.
Now, it is not going to be perfect, but it is better than nothing.
The last thing you want to do is get
your site hacked and lose all your traffic.
I have seen this time and time again,
someone gets hacked and they figure it out
after a week or two, their rankings tank,
they fixed it, and they don't recover in 30 days.
Eventually they recover, sometimes it takes two months,
sometimes three months, if they're lucky it happens quickly.
Make sure you do not get hacked.

AMP for WordPress.

This helps with mobile users.
Look, if you want to rank really high
you want to get in on Google News,
you want to make sure that your site has the AMP framework.
In other words, your tech space articles loads really fast,
Google just posts it on their end,
They are leveraging their own framework,
and I found that in the United States
by leveraging the AMP framework
I did not really get much more mobile traffic,
but other countries where mobile devices
and infrastructure is not as good, such as Brazil,
I saw a huge increase in mobile traffic
by just leveraging this plugin.   

a3 Lazy Load.

When you use images on your site, even when you compress them, it still takes time for that webpage to load.
You want to make it where those images load as people scroll, that way you're not just loading up all these images
on a page and it takes forever for that webpage to load when people have not even started reading the content and scrolling.
This creates a better experience for you as a user,
and search engines prefer this as well. 

All In One Schema Rich Snippets.

If you want to improve your search visibility
by sharing rich snippets between
the page title, you are going to use this plugin.
It is great, it is simple to use,
it is one of the best things that I have done out there.
Now, with schema markup what you'll find
is some people are like.  We are going to use
"all this schema markup and use all these tags
"even though our site isn't relevant
"to the specific schema markups."
You do not want to do that.
so when you're using this be nice and kind.
Don't try to abuse schema markup.  

Really Simple SSL.

It is pretty much become a prerequisite
if you want to rank well, so use the SSL.
Now, it does not have to be through this plugin.
Maybe your host provides it, maybe your domain provider provides it, whatever it may be you want a secure site,
and what you'll find is some browsers even notify users,
saying "Hey, this site isn't secure,"
and that'll cause people to bounce back,
get away from your site, and over time
that could decrease your rankings.
You want to make sure you have SSL, it's that important.

So, use these eight plugins, you'll find that
your rankings will start going up over time,
especially if you haven't used any of them,
but when you start combining all of them
it does help quite a bit.
