There are so many plugins out there, it’s hard to know which ones are the BEST!
Here are the wordpress plugins we absolutely can’t live without! (this post has affiliate links)
Akismet – This is for catching spam, and while it’s not perfect, it certainly gets rid of a LOT of spam, and makes my life much easier!
WordPress SEO by YOAST – This is the easy way to optimize your post for SEO. When you are writing your post it gives you a little box beneath the editing area where you can create focus keywords for your post and see how you did optimizing the keywords for searches. It’s so great to have it all in one place, and really takes the stress out of search engine optimization.
Limit Login Attempts – Simple but handy! This little plugin limits the number of times some one can try to log in to your account. This helps keep you safe from hackers, just make sure you never forget your own password!
W3 Total Cache – I don’t understand all the tech-side of this, but the plugin helps speed up your site through caching.
MiloTree– This one is a MUST for bloggers of all sizes because it helps you convert your readers into subscribers and followers. It’s google friendly and can replace a LOT of other social media plugins that can really slow down your site. Get a free trial here!
These are my personal favorite plugins! I don’t like to bog down my site with too many plugins, but these are the few that I really enjoy and recommend.

I have a love hate relationship with wp seo. I love what it can do but I hate not knowing if I set it up correctly. Do you have a tutorial for this? One that a non techie person can understand.

Hi. How do you get these plugins on your site? Also, I was wondering if you had a chance to peruse my blog? Thanks 🙂
Just go to Plugins & then ADD NEW & then search them. You can then Install & Activate them (each plugin usually has their own website with directions) 🙂
