Website Tips

The Top WordPress Plugins Your Website Needs


WordPress has made it easier for non-web designers to maintain the content and images of their custom-developed website once it’s been built. After our team completes your site, you will be trained on how to make updates, or we are available to help you. When we develop your site, we make good use of plugins, which is a piece of software that “plugs into” your WordPress site. Plugins can add new functionality or extend existing functionality. Here are some that your new site can benefit from.




Yoast SEO is a plugin that helps you instantly optimize the content on your site. You’ll enjoy tools that make optimizing your title tags, meta descriptions, and content easy. This plugin will also help you optimize your site to increase your SEO rankings.




When you create a blog on your website, you may be bombarded with spam comments. These comments can instantly fill your inbox, challenging you to find the right message you should respond to. That’s where Akismet, an anti-spam plugin, saves the day. It helps filter out spam comments, ensuring the comments section on your website is always relevant to your blogs.




Redirects is a plugin that makes it that much easier to create 301 redirects in the event that you no longer need a page in the future after our web designers have created your website or if you’ve changed its URL. It’s currently one of the most popular redirect plugins on WordPress, and for good reason. It helps save you time and frustration, so you don’t have to manually create redirects in your code.


W3 Total Cache


According to WordPress, W3 Total Cache is currently the only web host agnostic Web Performance Optimization framework for the content management system. It’s an incredibly helpful plugin that helps accelerate the load times for your website, and it removes caches that may have built up on your site or server. This not only creates a seamless user experience but also makes it easier (and faster) for you to see the changes that our web designers make on your site.
