My 10 Favorite WordPress Plugins
Posted in https://affiliate-maestro.com by Travis Loizos – Saturday, May 17, 2019
WordPress plugins take literally seconds to install and usually just a few minutes to
configure. And they can do all sorts of cool things.
There are free plugins, and there are premium plugins available for a nominal fee.
You can find literally thousands of plugins at the WordPress Plugin Directory, and also
within your WordPress admin area itself.
But rather than send you on a wild goose chase for the best WordPress plugins for Internet
marketers, I’ll share my Top 10 favorite plugins of 2018 here today.
I personally use all of these plugins and they help me save time, make money and even
give me peace of mind.
If you see one you want to try, just click the link.
OK, on with the list…
This peace of mind plugin is an anti-virus, firewall and malware scan plugin rolled into
one. It is probably my favorite plugin of all time. It keeps my WordPress sites safe from
hackers and even alerts me to whenever I need to update any other plugin.
I’ve used a lot of contact form plugins to build simple “contact us” pages at my sites, including Contact Form 7.
But this beginner-friendly WordPress contact plugin called WP Social Contact is my new favorite.
It gives your visitors multiple ways to contact you without having to use a boring old contact form.
#3: WP Fastest Cache
I stumbled upon this slick plugin when I started offering 100% done for your blogs. One of
the sites was loading slowly so I hired a fiverr gig to fix the problem. After she was done
the site load time went from 4 seconds to about 1 second!
So I went in and saw what she did. She installed WP Fastest Cache. Since then I’ve been adding it to all my blogs and my
clients’ blogs. Remember, Google loves fast sites so this plugin can help your ranking!
#4: One-Click Video Site Builder
This is another plugin I add to all my clients’ blogs. It creates monetized video posts with
one click. It can even schedule future posts. It’s my favorite way to add videos to my
website, with affiliate links or ads right below every video — all automatically.
This little plugin gives you lots of traffic stats without any setup work. Just add the plugin
and activate it and it starts capturing and displaying your traffic info right at your
#6: Yoast SEO
I’ve been using Yoast more and more lately and my search engine ranking is steadily
improving. This is an all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress that includes on-page content
analysis, XML sitemaps and much more. It lets me easily check each post to make sure it
is optimized well for Google and other search engines, and even makes simple
recommendations for me to follow.
This is one of my favorite plugins of all time. It finds you free images online, lets you add
them to posts, and is even a complete Image Editor plugin that works right inside your
WordPress admin area. (I used it to quickly find and customize the image at the top of today’s post.)
#8: Thrive Architect
Build beautiful, modern sales pages, opt-in pages and more. This is actually a WordPress
theme and it comes with a giant collection of pre-built templates. You just load a pre-built
page with a few clicks and customize as needed. This tool was largely responsible for
generating five figures in sales for one of my recent product launches. (See this page for
an example of what you can build with Thrive content builder.)
Integrates the awesome (and free!) OneSignal platform for pushing your posts out via browser or smartphone notifications.
#10: Duplicator Pro
Another peace of mind plugin, this is my go-to plugin for creating backups of my blogs.
They offer a free version called Duplicator but I prefer the Pro version as it lets me schedule
my backups to run on auto-pilot. It also automatically transfers a copy of my WordPress files
and database to my Amazon s3 account. You can also use this plugin to duplicate and move a site from one location to another quickly.
That wraps up today’s post. If you have a favorite plugin that you use at your WordPress site or blog, I’d love to hear about it. Just comment below!
