Plugins I Use To Make My Website Better

YOAST SEO

I responded to an informational blog sent out by my mentor, Jim Daniels, telling all his email list viewers about key Plugins that would be beneficial for their websites.

Plugins are programs that are compatible with WordPress that you can add to your site in the Admin area. They accomplish things like monitor SEO health, create Image modifications, improve writing quality, and so forth.

His recommendation of a Plugin called YOAST SEO was at the top of his list and caught my eye. He recommended using the free version for most websites. I installed it and found out it now does some of the following tasks for my website:

  • Notifies of repetitive words in sentences
  • Monitors readability of your text
  • Gives suggestions for SEO tricks to use
  • Advises on Keyword usage
  • Embodies a more professional looking blog when published

JetPack

The main thing that the JetPack  plugin does is monitor the loading capabilities of your site on viewer engagements. It also tells you when your site is down and also when it is back up for viewing.

The plugin helps with the design of your site. Along with that, security features are added as well as tips for growing your audience.

I haven’t maximized the free features yet, but will begin to learn the possibilities as time goes on.

Tiny MCE Advanced

The Tiny MCE Advanced free Plugin will let you add, remove and arrange the buttons that are shown on the visual editor toolbar. You can configure up to four rows of buttons including Font Sizes, Font Family, text and background colors, tables, etc. it will also allow you to enable the editor menu.

I have used it to add feature buttons that were missing from the original tool bar.

FotoPress

FotoPress was added to my site by my website creator. This Plugin is right next to my Add Media Button on top of my Blog posting section. It allows you to find an image in your Media Library (or elsewhere) and edit the size, shape, shading, and coloration of your chosen Media piece.

A nice additional feature is that you can install a written heading or message right into the body of the picture. One of my blogs shows a finger that is pointing to a blackboard, with the added-on title of the blog written on it in white letters. Cool!

My Overall Thoughts On Plugins

The number of Plugins installed on my website is over 20. I have included the ones I use most in this blog. I will discuss others in upcoming blogs. I have to come to depend on them to help me write and publish articles that turn out better than what I could produce without them.

As reiterated to in a previous article, I hate errors. When I see them in other sites that I view, I want to fix them. Or at least contact the author and offer to.

My site will improve in time, but I am basically learning how to write articles and manage my site with user-friendly tools right now. Learning as I go. WordPress with all the installed Plugins brings it all together for me to handle in a single place. The tools make you look much better than you really are right out of the starting gate. At least at the beginning of your journey.

I know I must strive to produce quality content that is interesting and informative to the reader. Critical Plugins help me do that. I guess I could say that they sort of spoil me and become a crutch, so to speak. More will come along in the future, but I love the ones I have now.

I am requesting that my readers click on the links provided and download a sample read of each book and give a review on Amazon. You will have free access to the first four chapters of each book. My hope is that you will like the story lines enough to obtain either an eBook version or a paperback copy that you can put on your bookshelf when you are done.
