WordPress Plugins allow you to easily add functionality to your blog. If you are wondering which WordPress Plugins you should have, you can find the most used ones here
When you initially start your blog, you probably won’t know what wordpress plugins you will need. The beauty of wordpress is that you can add plugins whenever you need.
To get you started you only really need an SEO plugin, and we strongly recommend WordPress SEO by Yoast as it offers you an easy way to check the quality of each of your blog posts so that you know that your content is presented as well as it can be.
The only other WordPress Plugins you might want to add are Akismet which will control your comment spam for you.
Many unscrupulous people set up automated auto commenting scripts which trawl the internet looking for blogs to add spam comment on. Many unwary bloggers set their comment setting to ‘auto post’ which then allows all their spam comments to be published.
Spam comments will seriously harm the quality and integrity of your blog, so make sure that you manually approve all your blog comments before they are published.
Spam can soon add up, so Akismet can be a great time saving tool for you.
Adding ‘related posts’ to each of your blogs can be a time consuming activity, because as your blog grows in size, you will have new content that could be linked to from old posts. Unless you go through each post manually and update your ‘Related Posts’ section by hand, you can’t easily edit them. This is where Yet Another Related Posts Plugin comes in.
Simple to install, it uses a unique algorithm to automatically add links into your related posts on each page. Over time this will save you hours of editing.
