Recently I had a look at the comments of my blog and discovered that there are many questions referring to the plugins I am using or the plugins I would recommend for a fully functioning website. For this reason, I thought that it makes sense to dedicate a short post on this topic.
There are many plugins you can install on your WordPress Website – free or paid, and I have to admit that when I started to blog I was totally fascinated to install many of them and to try their functionality out. Unfortunately, I remarked after a short time that also the performance of my Website was lowered, the Website Speed was lately about 8 seconds! Therefore I tried to eliminate the plugins I did not need and focused only on the necessary ones.
I recommend you also to be minimalistic when deciding which plugins you really need to install. For this reason, I want to present you in this article 5 plugins I think are must-have for your WordPress Website. All of them are easy to install in your plugins tab and free.
Here are the Top 5 Must-Have Plugins for WordPress:
- Backup by Supsystic: It is a plugin which makes a backup of your WordPress website to the FTP, DropBox, Google Drive or Local Computer and restores in two clicks. You can keep a copy of your site’s data on hand extraordinarily simple.
- Autoptimize: A plugin that makes your site faster by optimizing CSS, JS, Images, Google fonts and more.
