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:

  1. 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.
  2. Google Analyticator: The plugin adds the necessary JavaScript code to enable Google’s Analytics. After enabling this plugin on your Website you need to authenticate with Google, then select your domain and you’re set.
  3. Autoptimize: A plugin that makes your site faster by optimizing CSS, JS, Images, Google fonts and more.
