So there are a lot of topics regarding the best and the most in demand plugins for WordPress. However, not all of them suit your needs, hence I’m listing here the WP plugins that my blog uses that I find very useful.
Excerpt Editor – Add or edit excerpts for Posts and Pages. If you check the main page of my blog, you can see the word “continue reading”. You can actually customize it to any word that you want to be displayed e.g. “read more”.
Head META Description – Insert HTML META description tag: excerpt/content brief for post/Page, description for category, and blog tagline for everything else.
My Page Order – Useful plugin to sort your pages in order. Some WP templates actually mess up the ordering of your pages especially when you add up new ones. This plugin solves that dilemna.
Search Meter – Good for admin purposes. This plugin outlines what topic your visitors search in your blog. This way, you would know and possibly write more about the topics that they searched.
Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form – This is the plugin that I used for my contact me form.
wp-cache – Very fast cache module, lets you cache your posts and your layout so that server does not have to reload contents every time a visitor checks out your blog.
WP-PageNavi – Adds a more advanced paging navigation to your WordPress blog
For now, these are the plugins that my blog uses. If there would be any new plugins that I come across, I will post them here so as to give new and old WP users a headstart.
