Choosing the right plugins can make or break your WordPress website, so it’s important to know what they are and how they work before you install them on your site.
While these WordPress plugins won’t make your site look pretty or even help with ranking in Google, they will help you manage your content and optimize your website so that you can focus on the marketing side of things, which is arguably much more important. Here are three WordPress plugins everyone should use.
Gravity Forms 📄
This WordPress plugin makes it easy to collect information on your website and stores that data for you. It also integrates with several other popular plugins, like MailChimp and Klaviyo, which you’ll need if you want to start capturing email addresses and sending marketing emails.
The only downside is the $69 price tag, but Gravity Forms is worth every penny if marketing is a priority for you and your business.
Yoast SEO (bulk editor feature) 🔍
Yoast SEO is a WordPress plugin that analyzes your content and gives you tips on how to improve the SEO of your page. It also helps optimize your keyword density, which is great for Web Development purposes because when you know what keywords you want to target and what percentage of content should have those keywords, it’s easy to do optimization during the writing process.
If SEO isn’t a concern for Web Development sites, there are still some really useful features within Yoast SEO such as the bulk editor function. This function allows you to quickly bulk edit SEO titles and descriptions for your posts and pages. One overview is for Titles and description edits, while the other is for meta descriptions and other details.
Google Site Kit 🔨
The Google Site Kit WordPress plugin lets you insert Google Maps, Mailchimp form, and other tools. It also gives you SEO optimization and aids in site auditing. There are five plugins altogether that do different things.
You can use the Google Site Kit to promote content, improve performance and help you analyze your site data like the hit speed of each page, for example. We recommended everyone use Google Site Kit as a staple plugin for your website analytic tools.
