Before we move on to the best WordPress plugins out there, let us cover some of the definitions.
WordPress is the most commonly used open source content management system (CMS) in the world. Although it is often used as a blog, the blog is strong enough to run all websites. So this is not just a blogging platform. WordPress is powered by PHP and MySQL and has exciting features like templates and plugins that make the creation of great websites relatively straightforward. 13% of the world’s 1,000,000 largest websites use the blog, no small feat depending on the breadth of options available.
Plugins are applications that simply enhance the capabilities of WordPress and improve performance. Most plugins are free.
Here are the best WordPress plugins. My opinion is very subjective, but these are the plugins you want to know.
The All-in-One SEO Pack facilitates on-page search engine optimization. Because of this, it’s my top pick. With this plugin, adding meta tags like title tags, meta descriptions and keywords is not that easy. This is a good thing because many websites are missing out on these important features (resulting in online lead generation and/or missing out on online sales).
Askimet allows you to leave moderate comments. It automatically checks to see if the comments asked on your website against the Askimet web service look like spam. If it’s spam, they will toss the comment. To keep the service honest, you can analyze the spam’s catch to make sure the plugin does its job properly. Two things are important when using this plugin. One, your readers will not have to re-type the captcha. Two, your readers do not have to wait for their comments to be moderated again (this makes me crazy when we visit other blogs).
Google XML Sitemaps generate a unique XML sitemap that allows search engines to index your blog. If that sentence bothers you, find out: It’s easier for Google to read your website. This is a good thing if Google can not read your website, it is bad. They want you to read it so that they can share your website with people who use the Internet. If you enjoy your hard work and / or skills for money, consider this an important WordPress plugin.
Consider this one cherry on top of your delicious WordPress Sunday. Subscribe to Comments Reloaded people change the way you use your blog. Without it, people will stop, comment and never come back. With this plugin, your readers will be asked to click on the box and notify us of further comments via email. This email notification (in some cases) causes the reader to come back and comment. This will give you more web traffic, more comments and it will make your blog more interactive.
Kawasaki was once called the most important button on the internet. It’s probably not at that level today, but it’s definitely useful for conveying your message to people. Twitter has proven to be the most effective viral marketing tool. If there is anything important or interesting to you, Twitter will go a long way in listening to your voice. On Twitter-Shells, there is nothing more valuable than a retweet. Retweet when someone reads your content and rebroadcasts it to all their followers. When this happens, viral marketing is magic. TweetMeme makes it easy for your blog readers to rewrite your content, which brings you more traffic, more comments and (hopefully) more business.
So there you have it. In my opinion, there are five best WordPress plugins.
