WordPress Plug-Ins You Must Have

If you’ve installed a WordPress blog you have likely heard all kinds of people talking about their “pimped out” blog and all the must have WordPress Plugins and what I find because of the fact there are so many plugins out there, both free and paid, it gets very overwhelming for somebody new that’s trying to make money with the blog.

What I am about to share with you will bring simplicity to creating a blog that gets search engine traffic using what I believe to be the best WordPress plugin out there.

Best WordPress Plugin #1 The All in One SEO Plugin

There are lots of WordPress SEO Plugins but the one I use on every blog I publish is the All-in-one-SEO plugin.

What the All-in-one-SEO plugin does for you is it allows you to insert your meta information into your blog exactly how you want it to appear.

If you don’t have the all-in-one-seo plugin then WordPress will insert the blog post title into your title tag but for better search engine results you will want to be able to modifying your meta title, the meta title tag is where you set the words that appear at the top of your web browser and search engines use that for the clickable text in the search results pages.

And the Meta description that gets added in the all-in-seo plugin typically is the description that appears in your search engine results pages.

Meta Description Usage Tip: Use your meta description to entice visitors to click on your search engine result by offering value such as “Visit now to claim your FREE report”

Best WordPress Plugin #2 – The Akismet Spam Filter

The Akismet plugin is usually built-in to your WordPress installation but if it isn’t you can download Akismet here

The Akismet plugin is an essential plugin because your goal on your blog should be to build an interactive community where you are engaging in conversation with your website visitors.

But due to the fact there are evil-doers out there that are trying to infiltrate your blog you need a way to stop spam comments from appearing on your blog and that is what the Askimet plugin does.

Yes there are tons of other incredible WordPress plugins available and I will talk about those later as we move into advanced WordPress blogging strategies but my goal is to give you a solid foundation first and get you making money as simply as possible without introducing layers of complexity, by doing this it keeps you from feeling overwhelmed.
