7 Essential Wordpress Blog Plugins
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you’re already using Wordpress for your blog, you’ve probably already figured out that it is an extremely powerful and flexible blogging platform. Though it comes with a lot of great built-in features, it may not necessarily include all the features you want or need. The following are some great Wordpress blog plugins that I consider essential for increasing the readability, usability, traffic, and optimization of your Wordpress blog.

  • Efficient Related Posts Wordpress Blog Plugin - Ever notice how many blogs often have a list of related blog post links at the bottom of each post? You can easily set this up on your blog using this great Wordpress blog plugin. Related post links are great for reducing bounce rate (the rate at which visitors view one page and “bounce” off the site) and increasing page views, as well as increasing backlinks with keyword-rich anchor text within your site. Readers like it too because it makes it easy for them to find other posts related to the topic they're interested in.
  • All in One SEO Pack - The All in One SEO Pack plugin is probably one of the most essential and best Wordpress plugins because it allows you to easily edit the title, description, and keyword tags for your blog posts. And if you can easily edit the tags, you can easily pack them with keywords that will help search engines find your posts more easily.
  • Share and Follow Wordpress Blog Plugin - Share and Follow is a powerful plugin for easily integrating social bookmarking functionality into your blog, which is great for increasing traffic and backlinks. Whoever created this plugin put a lot of work into it because it has a lot of great customization options that allow you to select what social bookmarking sites to display as well as a variety of icon formats and sizes.
  • Growmap Anti-Spambot Plugin - Sick of comment spam? I know I am! Fortunately, you can load up this awesome Wordpress blog plugin and kill comment spam like Raid kills cockroaches. Before I installed this plugin I was using a Captcha-based plugin, which eliminates a good portion of spam, but still lets quite a bit through. With Growmap, I now get almost zero comment spam. Aaaaah, doesn't that feel good!
  • Print Friendly & PDF Wordpress Blog Plugin - Have you ever tried using the browser print function to print one of your Wordpress blog posts? It usually isn’t pretty, particularly if you have ads embedded in your content. Print Friendly & PDF is a great plugin for allowing your readers to generates clean printouts and pdfs of your posts.
  • Google Analytics for WordPress - This is a great plugin for easily integrating analytics for your blog into your existing Google Analytics account. I’ve occasionally had some issues with this plugin, but it generally works pretty well.
  • WP Hide Post Wordpress Blog Plugin - This is a great plugin because it allows you to control the visibility of posts on your blogs front page, category pages, and search results without preventing the search engines from seeing them. This is nice functionality to have because it allows you to publish targeted content that you can link to from external articles or email blasts without it showing up on your blogs front page.

Conclusion Hopefully you find these plugins as useful as I have! Note that though I’ve used all these plugins and have found them to generally work well, you could run into conflicts depending on what other plugins you have and what version of Wordpress you’re using. I highly encourage you to try these plugins on a test version of your blog before rolling them out to your live blog.
