The Best WordPress Plugins And How They Work

WordPress Plugins are an incredible addition to the WordPress platform. Plugins have the ability to transform an ordinary webpage into a high performing social and business network alive with forums, transactions and media links.

Some of the Plugins that we download as standard for our websites are listed below:

JetPack For WordPress
This Plugin requires a login from WordPress.com and it is simply one of the best performing and most popular statistical analysis system offered on WordPress. No code use or special knowledge of analytics is required and once activated the basics are very easy to understand. The breakdown of your visitors by country, day, page, clicks and referrals is automatic. You can see on simple tables where your traffic is coming from and where it goes from your site.

With a small amount of guidance from JetPack you can integrate other features into your site like social sharing with Google+, Facebook and Twitter.

JetPack also offers advanced spelling and grammar checks, a subscription offer for your posts and articles, basic SEO, notifications by the media of your choice and shortcodes for Twitter posting as well as custom CSS to help you adapt your website to the format you choose.

WordPress SEO
This Plugin is a fantastic tool that fixes and rates your site according to its current search engine listings and advises you to make changes to improve your sites visibility and status to Google, Yahoo and the other major search engines.

WordPress SEO is straightforward and easy to use, it offers you alerts when you input a page that doesn’t adhere to SEO guidelines and it has a handy traffic light red-amber-green system per page and post to highlight the SEO status of each page with a detailed analysis of what is good and bad according to Google for your site and suggestions on how to adjust your site accordingly.

Tweetily
There are many social sharing plugins available through WordPress, we like Tweetily because it gives us a lot of choice about how and when and what will be shared on Twitter but is still easy to understand. Tweetily lays out a page all about what it will post and you simply select or deselect the settings to your preference. After that you can forget about it and at designated or random intervals, Tweetily will post another page or post to your Twitter account along with a hashtag if you choose.

SpamFree WordPress
There is a horrible experience lying in wait often for new WordPress users. They set up their site, open it up for comments and when they check their emails, they have several WordPress notifications about all the comments that have been posted to their site.

Upon checking the comments they are made by user names like gzzkrr111 and have emails to match and are written in broken English vaguely praising the site but clearly using a generic post and including backlinks to special offers on unrelated sites. These comments are generated by spam bots and not only do they clog up your website with unhelpful material and make you look unprofessional to actual customers and subscribers; they also act as a warning to Search Engines against your site.

SpamFree WordPress blocks all spam comments, is constantly updated by the programmers to new bots, sends you notifications of potential real commenters and keeps the search engines on your side.

bbPress
This is a forum plugin that allows your readers to interact and chat with you and each other on your niche topics. It adds an icon to your dashboard that you can manage without much effort and as your forums gather momentum, your website will garner traffic and shoot up the search engine listings.

There are thousands of Plugins available and whatever your specification can be found or tweaked within an hour of work. Once plugins are established on your site, you can forget about them and they will run your business to your brief .
