Without these 5 WordPress plugin your website is waste!!!
Yes, you heard it right. without right WordPress plugin, your website is waste.
Why I am saying this because right plugins give you more exposure in Google and with people also.
But it doesn’t mean that you need to download as many as plugins possible. Greater numbers of plugins can directly affect on your website speed.
So what to do? The answer is only to download the necessary plugins and uninstall/deactivate other plugins which are not required.
Using fewer plugins can also help to increase your website speed.
I always use fewer and important plugins in my websites because fewer plugins doesn’t put much effect on your website speed.
Websites which opens in less than 5 seconds are better and also score well in terms of SEO.
Now l am going to list down some free WordPress plugins list which helps your website to work well.
WordPress Plugins for your WordPress website

2. W3 Total Cache
As I said earlier that your website speed is very important because if your website speed increases more than 5 seconds then there are lots of probability that your users bounce back to another website.
Bouncing rate of a user also plays an important role in the SEO of a website. More bouncing rate lesser ranking in google.
bounce rates depend on many factors but website speed is also one of them.

There are lots of other features in this plugin and all of them are helpful and its free. I also use this plugin to optimize my website.

Akismet is an anti-spam WordPress plugin which helps to fight against the spam comment which comes on your blog.

This plugin is made by the WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg. It catches blog comment and pingback spam using their algorithms.
Whenever someone comments on your blog the plugin check in their database about of the nature of the comment and decide its spam or not, there are lots of algorithms that they decide for catching a spam comment.
Because now the company has a lot of database of spam comments so it is nearly always right to check spam comments.
You always need to get aways from spam comments because it hurts your website and your users too.
Whenever a spam comments detect its show on the WordPress dashboard where you can manually approve that the comment is spam or not.
You write a great blog many people come to your website they share your content. Awesome naa. because you really write a great piece of content.
