5 wordpress plugins

Broken link checker

This is a very handy plug in, it’s really easy to install and checks your site regularly for broken links, so you don’t have it. Once it finds a broken link, it allows you to quickly update it to the new one. This helps your links stay relevant and make sure you’re not missing out on any affiliate sales.

Google Analytics Dashboard for WP

Google analytics is a must have for any website, and I use this handy plug in to save me from having to login and check GA every day. It provides an overview of information such as: Pageviews, sessions, users, pages per session, bounce rate and organic search.

Yuzo – Related Posts

This is a great plug in to help keep your visitors for longer. At the end of each post it will suggest 6 similar posts for further reading. This is handy for the readers as well as for keep your bounce rate low and your pages per session up.

Yoast

This is an SEO tool that I use. The writing a blog post it marks you on varies points and tells if it’s red(bad), orange(not terrible), green(good), This allows you to optimise your posts and it gives you points to improve on. The app does so much more, but i’m not using it to it’s potential at the moment.

Pinterest hover Pin It button

This adds the pin it button to all your images on site, allowing your visitors to easily pin all of your lovely photography!
