Best Plug-ins for Your WordPress Site

If you want a well-functioning website for your business, it’s essential that you have the right plug-ins.

Not only do they improve your website’s speed and ranking, but they also benefit the user experience.

Here’s our list of five that you should check out:

Yoast SEO

What it does: Gives you an SEO checklist for each piece of content you post.

Why it’s important:  If you have read our ultimate guide to SEO, you know how important it is to optimize each piece of content on your website.

Not only does it make it more likely that a search engine will find you, but it also makes the reading experience for your audience much better. 

That’s where Yoast SEO comes in. With this plug-in, it’s easy to get a quick overview of the most important SEO factors and how a blog post performs on them.

Smush Image Compression

What it does: Makes images less likely to slow down your page load time.

Why it’s important: One of the biggest issues websites have is slow loading time. And the cause of that? Images that aren’t properly compressed. This plug-in takes care of that, and optimizes your images to look great without slowing things down.

This means more of your website traffic will actually stay on your site.

Elementor Page Builder

What it does: Easily and quickly build beautiful website pages without extensive programming knowledge. 

Why it’s important: We covered the difference between Elementor and Gutenberg in a previous post. Elementor is one of the best plug-ins you can have if your website is a focal point for your business.

Monster Insights

What it does: Easily tracks the most important metrics through Google Analytics.

Why it’s important: We have previously covered how important Google Analytics is for your business.

Unfortunately, with so much data, it can be tricky to understand the platform.

That’s where a plug-in like Monster Insights comes in handy. It shows you everything you need to know in an easy-to-use interface. No more confusion over metrics!
