Top 10 Basic Plugins You Must Have & Use As A Blogger

Blog
As A Blogger You Called Yourself, You Must
Have All This Plugin To Make Blogging
Advanced For You
1) Akismet
Ah, comment spam. Don’t you just love that
stuff?
Those pesky little emails and junk mail that
come flooding in at every turn are just so
much fun…. Sarcasm aside, spam really is
very irritating. And spam comments in
WordPress are the most irritating of all.
If you want to save yourself a serious
headache, then Akismet is the must have
WordPress plugin.
This blog plugin helps stave off comment
spam and even has the ability to delete all
the junk comments on its own so you never
have to even see those digital vermin.
2) Google XML Sitemaps
Believe it or not, even if you’ve done
everything you can to optimize your posts for
SEO, your site itself might be what is causing
the biggest issues for it not ranking…
The likely solution?
A sitemap.
And the Google XML Sitemaps plugin is one
of the top WordPress plugins for giving your
site just what it needs. By creating an XML
sitemap, your site is much easier for Google
to crawl and read, thus helping your site rank
higher.
3) Contact Form 7
If you haven’t noticed, my Contact me page
has a contact form. I didn’t code it nor did I
design it. I just used the Contact form 7 .
It’s a very simple and essential WordPress
plugin for creating different types of contact
forms. In contact form 7, you will be able to
add different forms and give them names.
You can also make some of the boxes as “
required” with this plugin, for example the
email address or phone number box. No need
for special CSS coding.
The WordPress plugin integrates into a post
or page by the use of shortcodes, and you
can pretty much customize the input forms
and drop down menus as to say whatever you
like.
4) Jetpack by WordPress.com
There is a lot to love about the JetPack
plugin, making it another must have
WordPress plugin.
Instead of going in search of a whole bunch
of other plugins, Jetpack has a sort one-and-
done idea that it is built on.
There are over 30 modules that you can
activate to help you run a tighter faster ship:

And quite a few more. You’ll need a
WordPress.com account to use and connect
the blog plugin to your site, but it’s well worth
the extra step.
5) WooCommerce
WooCommerce is the WordPress blog plugin
that revolutionized eCommerce plugins for
WordPress .
It took the more difficult aspects of creating
and running an online store with WP and
made it about as easy as humanly possible.
Though it does take some learning, the ease
of use and the many other plugins and
companies that support the plugin add a lot
to its popularity.
6) Wordfence Security
A house might have deadbolt, but that won’t
keep a thief from breaking in.
Similarly, your WordPress site may be locked
behind a slew of passwords, but that’s not
the best form of security.
Many people recognize the need to add
security measures to their site and that’s why
so many flock to Wordfence. The security
Word press plugin allows features like
blocking malicious networks, scanning for
vulnerabilities, monitoring various metrics that
could make your site more open to attack,
and much more.
It’s no wonder so many people use this
WordPress plugin in their blog.
7) Yoast SEO
You know it, I know it:
SEO is a big deal.
And even though a lot of what we know about
what SEO is has changed, a lot of things have
stayed important — like creating content that
is optimized for Google search.
However, creating that content correctly can
be of a hassle if you don’t know what you’ve
done right and what you’ve done wrong.
That’s where the Yoast SEO WordPress plugin
comes in.
Instead of being left to guess if you’ve
optimized your content correctly, the plugin
helps you every step along the way. And if
you use this one, you can skip the extra XML
sitemap plugins, because Yoast takes care of
that too.
8) Regenerate Thumbnails
You know what stinks? Blurry images!
Imagine this:
You decide to give your site a facelift and so
you switch themes to change the look of it.
Then, come to find out, all your featured
images and thumbnails look terrible.
Enter the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin!
When you run into this WordPress blog plugin,
just run it and it will regenerate your media
as needed.
9) WP Super Cache
Every tried and true online entrepreneur
seems to know and understand the need for a
fast and reliable website.
Caching a WordPress site is something that is
good for providing both of these.
One reason why this belongs to our list of
best WordPress plugins is because of it being
easy to use and setup. Just install, activate,
check a few boxes to configure the plugins
and you’re pretty much good to go!
10) Google Analytics by Yoast
Have you ever had that moment where you
need to look at more than one browser tab
and then feel suddenly overwhelmed with
what feels like screen overload?
Yeah… We’ve all been there.
When you’re running an online venture, there
are a lot of things you need to check on to
keep a tight running ship like Google Analytics
and your WordPress site.
But thankfully, the Google Analytics plugin by
Yoast saves the need to open that extra
browser tab.
Just install and setup the plugin, and you’ll be
able to view the analytics of your site right
there in your WP dashboard.
