Free WordPress plugins


Note: I am personally using all these plugins, so feel free to use them.

1. Jetpack By WordPress

What Is Jetpack for WordPress?

You know all the reasons why WordPress.org beats WordPress.com for most users. With a self-hosted WordPress site, every aspect of your site is under your complete control.

But, sometimes, don’t you miss a few of the features available on WordPress.com?

Those site stats on your dashboard are so convenient, and the image caching can really speed up your site.

No need to switch back to WordPress.com — you can get those features and more with Automattic’s Jetpack plugin for WordPress.

2. Yoast SEO

 free WordPress plugins

Yoast SEO  is the most popular WordPress plugins, if you are new to WordPress then you must know about the Yoast SEO Plugin.

Yoast allows you to optimize your WP site for search engines. It not only helps you adding meta tags, but it also optimizes your site as a whole.

If you don’t have enough knowledge on-site SEO, then you must use Yoast SEO plugin to help you with that.

I personally found it very helpful for BloggLive.

3. Akismet Anti-Spam

 free WordPress plugins

The huge advantage of Akismet is that, if you are using jetpack plugin then you can use Akismet plugin on the same account. And I think it’s the great opportunity I had ever seen in my blogging carrier.

If you aren’t using Jetpack plugin, I will also highly recommend using Jetpack.

I personally love this free WordPress plugin.

4. WP Super Cache

 free WordPress plugins

Akismet keep an eye at your comments and contact form submissions against our global database of spam to prevent your site from publishing malicious content.

You can review the comment spam it catches on your blog’s “Comments” admin screen.

A slow site can frustrate visitors and, in turn, hurt conversions. That’s why you need the WP Super Cache plugin.

Online, a cache is a place that stores data temporarily. It takes time to load an entire web page from scratch.

So, your browser will store files in its cache from web pages you’ve visited before. That means it doesn’t have to receive as much “fresh” information from the site, which results in a faster load time.

WP Super Cache creates static pages of your site. These pages are then served instead of processing the full PHP scripts.

In turn, this will reduce the page-serving time. Without caching your page, your load times will increase significantly.

WP Super Cache also provides caching for visitors using a mobile device.

5. Google XML Sitemaps

free WordPress plugins

The Sitemaps protocol allows a webmaster to inform search engines about URLs on a website that are available for crawling.

You’ll notice a date at the end of each line. This tells Google when each post was last updated and helps with SEO because you want Google to crawl your updated content as soon as possible.

When a date changes in the XML sitemap, Google knows there is new content to crawl and index.

You can also use this free WordPress plugin.

6. Smush Image Compression and Optimization

free WordPress plugins

Keeping your website’s performance in top shape is one of the keys to its success. This includes optimizing your images so they aren’t a drain on your site’s resources.

However, it can be hard to choose among the top tools for doing so – such as deciding between Imagify vs WP Smush vs ShortPixel vs Optimole.

When you optimize your site’s images, you’re making their file sizes smaller and less of a burden.

At the same time, this can be accomplished without a noticeable reduction in the images’ quality.

Fortunately, all you need to accomplish this is the right WordPress plugin – which is why we’re comparing Imagify vs WP Smush vs ShortPixel vs Optimole in this review.

7. WP-Forms

free WordPress plugins

Every WordPress website requires a contact forms plugin, regardless of its niche or traffic. Using a contact form will protect you from spammers and hackers.

You can keep your WordPress site more secure by using a contact form instead of displaying your email address.

This way, you’re protecting your email from spammers who send unwanted offers and phishing emails. Using forms also saves you time.

By using a contact form, you can specify what necessary details you’ll need to know when your visitors and potential customers are reaching you out.

8. Elementor Page Builder

free WordPress plugins

A WordPress page builder plugin provides a simple drag and drop interface to build beautiful websites.

You can create pages by simply arranging blocks of content with a drag and drop tool.

Most page builders also offer front-end editing so you can make live edits without having to switch back and forth between your editor and the preview page.

Above all, a page builder allows anyone to build a website with ease regardless of their skillset. No technical know-how is required as you won’t be touching a single line of code.

9. Monster Insights

free WordPress plugins

If you’ve used Google Analytics before, you know that it’s a powerful tool with lots of valuable data — but it can be completely overwhelming.

If you’re not an analytics expert, it can be very difficult to know where to start, or how to put that data to use.

And what’s the point of analytics if you’re not using the data to improve your site?

For most users, you just need a tool that shows you the most important data at a glance, in an easy to understand format.

Data that you can put into use right away to improve your site.

10. Classic Editor

free WordPress plugins

Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen.

It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.
