I am sharing this WordPress plugins list it will help you if you are new in WordPress or you are not a technical guy.

I also use this WordPress plugins and every blogger must need to use these plugins.

Let,s start

It is a free plugin and it comes inbuilt when you install WordPress for the first time. It is a WordPress’s official plugin and you just need to use this plugin.

These plugins block all type of spam comments and spam contents. You just need to activate this plugin and ready to go.


You can’t imagine how cool plugin it is and what this plugin can do. This plugin comes in 2 variants one is the free version and paid version.

Personally, I use the free version and you can also use it for free. You can say it is an all in one plugin, let me describe its features.

Performance: It increases website performance by optimizing website images and by creating static files. This plugin also provides you inbuilt lazy load.

You are thinking what is lazy load? It is a system which load image which area of page visitor reading other areas of the image don’t load. I guess you got it. It is a very helpful feature. It reduces CPU usage.

Sharing: It comes with feature auto share on social media which is very helpful. It reduces your work and time. When you post any new post it publishes URL of post auto on all social media.

You can turn on sharing button on posts too with this option you don’t need any 3rdparty plugin for sharing (You can turn it off, as I will share you one good share plugin).

Traffic: Jetpack comes with a traffic monitoring option. It helps you to see daily traffic on your dashboard. It is very helpful.
Security: This plugin comes with website downtime monitor, spam blocker also Brute force attack protection.

Many more features available for the paid version. But I highly recommend you to use this plugin.


Contact Form 7

You know that every website one contact form page but it is difficult to make a contact form. But with this plugin, you can build your contact form very easily.

There are too many forms and contact form building tools available but I highly prefer you to use contact form 7 as it is an optimized plugin.

WP Super Cache

WordPress comes with too many dynamic data so we need to make some static file which increases our website speed. For this, we use a cache plugin. here I am recommending you WP Super Cache, as it is a very lite and very easy plugin for you.

I personally use WP Rocket and WP Super Cache for some blogs. WP Rocket is a paid plugin but it the best cache plugin. If you re finding a free option then definitely you need to go with WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache.

  • Save

W3 Total Cache it difficult for a non-technical user but it is a good plugin.

W3 total cache works well on VPS servers but in shared hosting, WP Super Cache works better. Now choose which cache plugin you will install.

Easy Affiliate Links

When any blogger running any blog he wanted to earn some money from blogging so they start doing affiliate.

When you sign up for any affiliate program that program gives you some big spammy looking URL. If you show your users that URL user will never click. So you need to change that URL look.

To change URL look we use Affiliate Link redirector plugins like Easy Affiliate Links. With this type of plugin, you can make beautiful URL and redirect that URL to that spammy URL.
