5 WordPress Plugins Every Site Should Have

The beauty of WordPress is that if you need to add any additional features to enhance your website you are more than likely going to be able to find a WordPress plugin to do the job for you. Plugins allow even the most non-tech savvy users to add features to their website without any knowledge of development or coding. Below are a list of 5 WordPress plugins that I believe every website should have.


1. Yoast SEO

“Yoast SEO (formerly known as WordPress SEO by Yoast) is the most complete WordPress SEO plugin that exists today for WordPress.org users. It incorporates everything from a snippet preview and page analysis functionality that helps you optimize your pages content, images titles, meta descriptions and more to XML sitemaps, and loads of optimization options in between.”
