To help you get started with your WordPress website, below we have listed a few plugins that we recommend all users to look into further.
WP Super Cache - This is a caching plugin for WordPress. One of the main issues we see with WordPress sites is that if caching is not enabled, it causes some sites to load slower and use more resources. It is highly recommended to install Super Cache to help prevent these issues.
Google XML Sitemaps - To help your Search Engine Optimization and increase your visibility to customers, it is recommended you use the official Google XML Sitemaps widget. This will create a sitemap for your website which search engines look for when they crawl your site.
Akismet - This is a plugin that will help block spam from being posted in your Comments section.
For assistance finding and installing any of these plugins, please see our previous class on installing plugins for more information.
