⚠ Checking your link to protect it from viruses, malware, thief, bots, etc! Please wait!

There are tens of thousands of plugins available to WordPress users. So many, in fact, that it’s difficult to know which ones really make a difference and which are overhyped. Plenty offer useful niche solutions, but few are truly must-have WordPress plugins for all sites.

No matter what kind of site you’re running, or what niche it belongs to, there are certain plugins that you’ll want to install. And those are the tools we’re going to discuss today.


  • The best WordPress SEO plugin - Yoast SEO

  • WP Rocket

WP Rocket is a powerful caching plugin that helps you to speed up your loading times. It does this by creating cached copies of each dynamically-generated page on your site, so your servers have to do less work.

You’ve never seen such speed. WP Rocket improves the loading time of your site right upon activation.
Forget configuration headaches, and enjoy the results!


  • ManageWP Worker

ManageWP Worker helps make it easier to manage your WordPress sites. Part of that 'easiness' is its premium cloud backup service.  In the free version, you can back up your sites to an off-site location on a monthly basis (which is too slow for a busy site). If you pay, though, you can get access to on-demand backups, as well as weekly, daily, or hourly backup cycles.

  • Insert Headers and Footers

While managing your WordPress site, you may sometimes need to add code snippets to your WordPress header or footer for verification, inserting ad retargeting scripts, etc.

Insert Headers and Footer allows you to easily add code snippets to your WordPress site without editing your theme files. Take a look at our tutorial on how to add header and footer code in WordPress.

This free plugin is extremely handy for business owners.
