What are the best WordPress plugins you should install immediately after you’ve just bought your website?
There are countless number of plugins out there and a lot of them are great, that’s why this question may puzzle some a lot.
But when you are a beginner you aren’t looking for advanced options and cool features, you’re looking for simplicity and easily optimizable plugins.
You may not have much time to install and test different plugins, that’s why I wanted to share everything you need to take care of in the beginning.
Some of these contain a bunch of features but are really easy to use. Plus some of them offer coaching videos to help you get started.
Let’s start our countdown:
Jetpack is all-in-one plugin that offers a lot of features and tools.
It’s really easy to use but it requires a setup. Check out this post on how to integrate Jetpack step by step.
What’s Jetpack all about?
Jetpack offers a vast variety of features that will help you drive more traffic, improve your visitor’s experience and speed up your website.
Although it is premium plugin, most of the features come with free version.
You can add share buttons and related posts to increase traffic and their experience while reading your posts, you can connect your posts with your social media accounts and help your visitors connect as well and way more.
All of this is necessary to set up right in the beginning, before you start driving traffic.
Jetpack also helps you build trust by setting up portfolios and testimonials.
It also helps your security by blocking malicious attacks.
-All in one
-Very easy to use
-Increases traffic and their experience
-Can’t think of any
I use Elementor for every single page or post on my website and helps me complete them in about 10-15 minutes each. Of course, it depends on specific page or post.
It’s a drag-and-drop builder that’s pretty self-explainatory.
Here’s how it looks like:
All pro’s and zero con’s. Let’s move on!
3. Yoast SEO
The only con i can possible think of is that it looks confusing in the beginning, especially for beginners who have very little to no knowledge about SEO.
Other than that, it’s really useful.
4. WP File Manager
Go to uploads.
Upload your file there. You can create a folder or not, it doesn’t matter.
Then install the Add From Server plugin, locate your file, select it and click import. Your file is now in Library.
Again, no cons here either.
Again, can’t think of any con’s. I don’t know why I’ve even started that pro’s-and-con’s thing to be honest.
And there you are!
There are hundreds of great plugins like these but these are my favourite and I use them the most. Websites would be so harder to edit and use without these.
Make sure to get the free course!
