WordPress SEO by Yoast Download
You will only need one SEO plugin and this is it. The page analysis is the meat of this plugin. It tells you what you have done wrong in writing SEO content. You will get a list of things that need correcting. It also drives you to write keyword focused content by offering fields for SEO title, keyword focus and meta description (used in Google’s summary SER description).
WordPress Super Cache Download
Running a totally Php based site, such as what WP creates, can tax the server and slow down performance. A caching program is designed to deal with it by delivering static pages it generates from the php. If a user is logged in or has commented at least once, then the standard WP caching applies, otherwise the Super Cache kicks in.
Ultimate Tag Cloud Widget Download
Tag clouds may be old news, but this plugin brings them to life. You can configure everything imaginable about your tag clouds. Set the density, color, quantity, expiration date of tags, and which tags are either filtered in or out of the cloud.
Spam Free WordPress Download
False positives on blocking spam comments is what we would all like. It seems like only a dream, but you have never used Spam Free WordPress pugin. This works with the major caching plugins as well.
Social Metrics Download
If you ignore social media in your website strategy then you will certainly remain in the age of the dinosaurs. This plugin aids you in tracking how your site is doing with its social metrics and it does so effortlessly.
SEO-Tool – Keyword Density Checker Download
SEO is so important and content is king. So it is only natural you would want to know what keywords and key phrases you have written to. This plugin shows you which keywords have the highest density in your article. It even shows individual words and phrases of 2 and 3 words. Your SEO writing skills will skyrocket with this plugin.
WordPress Translator Widget Download
Give your foreign visitors the chance to translate everything on your site with one click at the beginning of their visit using Google Translation. While Google is not perfect, it is better than having nothing at all to translate with. Your foreign visitors will more comfortably navigate your site and even get a better understanding of your content, through a rough translation into their own language.
Get Social Download
Social networks must be leveraged if you are going to gain popularity for your website. That means raising the visibility of the social voting buttons and this plugin does just that. Remind your visitors to vote for you on their favorite social networks by placing this floating social network bar on your website.
