10 Best WordPress Plugins Free for Blogs or Websites

hey everyone this is andre from andre
elvine calm and today we’re going to discuss the ten best wordpress plugins
that are free for your blog or website and this is a subjective 10 batts our
top 10 or whatever you want to call it it’s subjective so these are just two
mics through my own experiences with different websites and what performs
better with WordPress in terms of plugins ask met is one of the best spam
protectors for WordPress I believe it is the best and what that does it it blocks
different spam comments are different just people that’s trying to our our
computers that are trying to intrude on your websites and in your comments and
things of that nature as you can see right here I have highlighted it’s at
almost a ninety nine percent accuracy rate and in the past looks like the past
six months 51 spam attempts have been tried and this thing works works very
well so it’s a it’s an awesome plugin the Google Analytics plugin is really a
no-brainer I highly highly highly highly recommend this plugin what it does it
enables google analytics on every page of your site but you have to make sure
that you set up a google account you can go to analytics google com or just do a
google search on google analytics and the page pop up and you can go in there
and set up an account fer so make sure you do that and once you download once
you got that squared away you you download the plugin there’s a video for
you to watch and there’s a tutorial that’s why i have that circle so that’s
that’s very important so make sure you do that first and it’ll
it’ll pretty much tell you step-by-step what to do so it’s really not that hard
anyway so even without the video and that’s you know maybe it’s just me
talking and through my experiences but you might be a super novice so make sure
you watch that video Google Analytics dashboard for WordPress this is an this
is a another very important you ever see those charts of how different web are
different bloggers when they show you the traffic that’s going to their
website that’s what this is in a in a nutshell this particular plug-in what it
does it’ll show this just one screen right here where it’s showing where the
traffic is coming from to my website and there’s also a tab that shows way thinks
the not sure how many but it’ll show like on this screen and location it’ll
show the traffic like this word where it’s coming from like if it’s coming
from facebook or pinterest or if it’s coming from if the traffic is coming
from google or bing it has a tab that will show you all of that there’s a lot
of information on and i highly recommend it I theme security is a wordpress
security plugin and what this does is self-explanatory it’ll it’ll save your
website it’ll save you a lot of headache also and have this screen here we’re
going to show you one of the things that does a strong password info is
enforcement it and it forces your password that you have set up for your
website along with many many other things there’s a paid version of it also
but since well this video is about free plug-ins I don’t have the paid version I
go with the free plugin you can see down there below
malware scan scheduling pro is what that is right there so you can you can’t get
the get the pay version if you if you like so i will wait i will wait on
something like that and just go with the free version for now w3 total cache is a
wordpress performance plugin if you don’t have one of these on your website
you are just waiting waiting for an attack on your website so do you have to
have some some added a security and some added this thing will show you to show
you well it’ll show you how well your website is performing and that’s very
very very important because a lot of times you’ll have issues with your
website and you can go into the settings of this particular plugin maybe you have
something able that shouldn’t be enabled and you can go into this plug-in and
disable it and so forth once you download the plug-in you’ll see the
performance tab to the left of your WordPress dashboard and you see at the
top word general page cache and all that good stuff and that’s that’s uh it’s
kind of the area i was talking about if you have something enabled that
shouldn’t be enabled that’s affecting your website you can always go in and
disable it and so far there’s a lot of information there I wouldn’t if you
don’t know what you’re doing with this particular plug-in just download it
leave it alone if you don’t know anything if you don’t know anything in
terms of the use of it download the plug-in anyway but don’t go in and start
messing around with something because you can screw your website up big time
make sure you remember that Yoast SEO is all in one SEO solution for WordPress is
a very good NC SEO optimized which a search engine optimization and what that
is it’s a web site where it helps you optimize your website for the search
engines this particular plug-in at the time of this recording I do not have
activated and that’s because I have a different have a paid blog theme which
is called optimize press and I’m actually using the SEO option on it the
reason that I disabled the Yoast because I didn’t want both of them coexisting on
the website not in want anything to mess up all I needed is one so I disabled the
Yoast SEO but it’s a pretty good solution for search engine optimization
it also does things like gives you a sitemap for gives you a sitemap for your
WordPress website and that site map is something that you’ll need to upload to
Google as well but Yoast SEO with yours nco I’m telling you it’s a it’s a pretty
awesome it’s awesome plugin if I didn’t have the paid option I would still
already have it running on my website contact form 7 it’s a simple contact
form first of all every website should have a contact page so make sure when
you’re building your website that you have a contact page and with this
particular screenshot here this is what my contact page looks like and you
notice at the top it has a CAPTCHA button which it makes sure that it’s not
a robot sending you comments are comments to your contact form I used to
get that all the time before they redesign and added the CAPTCHA to the
contact form plug-in I used to get all kind of weird messages and everything
but when they added this it completely stops so that’s that’s pretty cool simple share button adder that’s a share
button for your posts and pages and I’ll show you exactly what that is as you see
on this shot here it’s the Facebook Twitter Linkedin all that good stuff
right there and this is the this is the settings page and what this does is as
you can see here you can actually choose what social icons social share icons
that you want to use for your blog so these are the four that I use you can
add as many as you like and I have my posts on so every time that I write a
blog post that will be underneath the blog I actually have it to where where
you see where it says placement there it’s placed at the top of the blog and
at the bottom of the block so anyone can share whatever it is that you’re writing broken link checker is a very important
plug-in as well check for broken links mrs. missing images and notifies you as
well so you’ll see a notification somewhere in your WordPress dashboard if
you have a broken link on your website and this is just the settings page for
it all the different different things you can go in there and check some stuff
out from time to time i actually i’ll show you you can
actually set up which links to check and all that good stuff so it’s a good
plugin and i highly recommend it as well insert header and footers this is where
you can insert code in your header or your footer of your block from time to
time from time to time you’ll see that you’ll like this particular one Facebook
pixel cold so I have a facebook pixel code on my website and I needed to add
code to my website so whenever you need to add code to your website it actually
keeps you from going into the the editor part of your website and screwing
everything up if you’re not familiar with with the different HTML codes and
all other all of things so make darn sure that you download this particular
plug-in because it makes everything easy you can just copy and paste the code
into your header or footer okay we’re going to do a recap of the 10 best
wordpress plugins number one ask a mat and i hope i’m pronouncing that right
number two is google analytics very important google analytics dashboard for
wordpress is number three the fourth-best and I theme security number
five w3 total cache number six Yoast SEO 7 contact form 7 no pun intended oh we
go back I think I went a little too fast number 8 simple share adder simple share
adder number 9 there we go broken link checker and number 10 that I think you
should download insert headers and footers hey this is not to say that you only
need 10 those just a 10 best that I can think of in terms of importance so
there’s there’s other plugins that you may want part that you that you’re going
to need to use as well so just make sure you don’t have one kids I want to make
sure you don’t have like 30 plugins because if you have like 30 active
plugins on your website it’s gonna slow it down big time so make sure that you
have the right ones and it’s at a nice 1518 number I wouldn’t I wouldn’t have
over 20 plugins because it’ll it’ll slow your site down so 20 25 somewhere in
there so make make just make sure that you’re not having to over use plugins
hey make sure you subscribe to my channel you’ll see uh should see
somewhere here or go to the front page of my youtube channel and make sure you

  4. Some good plug-ins there but I think I have them beat..

    I got my hands on a WordPress plug-in that is both free and at the same time incredibly powerful – sounds too good to be true, well check it out and see for yourself.

    You can get it here and if you have a WordPress website then I urge you to consider using it:  http://instafunnel.net/instant_content_and_authority/?r=357

    My question is how damn powerful do you think this could be and what use cases would you have in mind to really leverage this plug-in?

    For example I could take a BBC or Wikipedia article on nutrition or recipes and then put in a pop-up or link to a diet book or recipe book that I am selling. Am I missing something here or is this an incredibly useful tool with loads of potential?
