We get asked often about which WordPress plugins we recommend. We’d like to take a moment to list out a couple of our favorites and why we like them.

  1. Yoast SEO – We use Yoast here and love how easy it is to manage. It takes a little bit to get your head around the idea of SEO but once you do, Yoast makes it easy to manage your settings.
  2. Securi or WordFence – It’s important to secure your site against hackers and malicious code. Don’t be a victim!
  3.  GDPR Cookie Compliance – While your site may be in the USA, GDPR restrictions follow the user rather than the IP address. What this means is that if a German citizen browses your site from New York City while on vacation, you could theoretically still be held to the EU laws. Their ability to enforce the laws is limited unless you expand into Europe but it’s better safe than sorry.

There are many other great plugins out there for specific use cases but we’d like to keep the list as short as possible. If you know of any other “must haves” that we missed, leave a comment below and we’ll check it out!
