2. Yoast SEO
Wordpress may be SEO friendly, but Yoast SEO provides marketers with the necessary guidance to ensure each blog post and page is fully optimized. The plugin is easy-to-use and provides a comprehensive solution.
3. Google XML SiteMaps
According to Search Engine Land, “XML sitemaps serve as a way to communicate directly with the search engines, alerting them to new or changed content very quickly and helping to ensure that the content is indexed faster.” This works in your favor when trying to get your posts to the top-end of the search results.
4. Just Writing
For some, writing comes quite naturally. To others, it can be a struggle to articulate their words onto either paper or a computer screen. The Just Writing plugin aids the latter through its distraction-free writing mode that’s provided by the plugin.
5. Broken Link Checker
Having broken links and missing images can work against your site’s search rankings. With the Broken Link Checker plugin, it scans your posts, pages, comments and other content to seek out any broken links. If any broken links have been identified, you will be immediately notified so you can make a quick fix.
If you are using WordPress to operate an e-commerce brand, then WooCommerce is perhaps the only e-commerce plugin you will need. The plugin can assist you with handling payments through a variety of payment options, create online store themes and can help you assess your stock levels.
7. WP Review
The WP Review plugin helps you to create product reviews as either a star rating, percentage or any custom scale (performance, quality, ease-of-use, etc.). Reviews can also be created for any other content, whether it is a blog post or page.
WordPress’ editor lacks a table feature. And tables are a great way of presenting information neatly to your user. The TablePress plugin is extremely easy to use and its spreadsheet-like interface allows you to design and manage tables without HTML. In addition, tables can be embedded into posts, pages or a text widget.
9. Editorial Calendar
As one of the popular content management systems, WordPress does a lot of things right. But when it comes to scheduling and managing content, it is not so user-friendly. The Editorial Calendar provides an overview of your content, showing you when each blog post is scheduled to be published.
10. iTheme Security (Formerly Better WP Security)
Security is a major concern for most WordPress site owners. Poor security protocols can damage your reputation and can also harm your customers via loss of confidential information.
