Our Ten Favorite WordPress Plugins

WordPress plugins are bits of software that can be uploaded to extend and expand the functionality of your WordPress site. Plugins allow you to do things on your website instead of hiring a coder for every little thing.

10 of our favorite plugins:

  1. Google Analytics Dashboard  View your Google Analytics at a quick glance in your dashboard.
  2. Yoast  SEO can be so difficult to figure out. This plugin allows you to quickly and easily make sure your posts are fully optimized with little effort.
  3. Page Links To  Make a WordPress page or post link to a URL of your choosing. This is a great way to redirect an old url to a new one.
  4. Pinterest “Pin It” Button  Take advantage of Pinterest. Allow your readers to share YOUR content on Pinterest today!
  5. RS EVENT multiday  Do you have events? Let everyone know on your website with this easy to use plugin.
  6. Shareaholic  You have to have those little social media icons on your posts and pages and this plugin is the best!
  7. TinyMCE Advanced  This is my FAVORITE Visual Editor Toolbar! With this one plugin, you can create and edit tables, set font family and font size, search and replace in the editor (great for keywords ), more options for lists plus so much more!
  8. Akismet  Keep the spam under control! There is nothing worse than others trying to take over your site and posting links and sales pitches in your comments.
  9. Google XML Sitemaps  Allow the search engines to better index your site.
  10. WP Date Remover  Remove the dates off of your blog posts. Without the dates, people can’t make the assumption that currently relevant information is old. Something you wrote five years ago may still be valid and removing the date will encourage people to read it as if it is current. On the flip side, make sure you review your content often to make sure it IS up to date.
