8 Amazing WordPress Plugins To Skyrocket Your Blog’s Ranking And Traffic

As you know WordPress made it easy for anyone to create a website.

It’s easy to use, it’s fast, it doesn’t require a lot of technical knowledge.

Even a person who’s not a developer can do things like SEO and modify WordPress with a breeze.

Today we shall discuss about the perfect SEO setup for WordPress sites.

Here are eight plugins to skyrocket your ratings and traffic.

Some of the most important factors that Google looks into in order to rank your site
are – user experience, on-page SEO, site speed, mobile-friendliness, internal link structure and structured markups, all these things impact your ranking.

However there are hundreds of other factors. There are over 200 factors that Google includes in their algorithm.

Today we are going to share with you some amazing plugins that’ll help you do all of
these thing in a really easy and controlled way.

1. W3 Total Cache

Plugin number one is W3 Total Cache.

Load time of web pages is very important, especially because people are using mobile devices now.

There are 4G, 5G and LTE, whatever you wind up calling it, but the problem with mobile devices is if you’re in a place that doesn’t have the best reception, your websites is not going to load really fast.

The W3 Total Cache plugin ensures that your site loads as fast as you possibly can.

It improves load times, it helps you connect with CDNs, it makes better use of your server resources so that way your server doesn’t have to continue to push the same content over and over again.

Since it caches it so, it can deliver it to the user as quick as possible, and if you have a really good hosting provider, they have caching built in, but most of the hosting providers don’t have caching built in, hence,
W3 Total Cache plugin is recommended.

2. Smush Image Compress

Another plugin that you need to check out is the Smush Image Compression plugin.

If you’re creating blog content, and if you’re on a WordPress blog, or WordPress as a CMS, there’s a good chance you at least have a blog article or two.

And in that blog article there is an image.

The Smush Image Compression plugin, ensures that your images still look really good and quality, so that when someone looks at them, they don’t look all pixelated and fuzzy.

They still look really sharp, but this decreases the size of the image, the server size, that hard drive space that it takes up.

So when people ping your site it loads much faster.

3. Yoast SEO

The third plugin that you have to use is Yoast SEO plugin.

It does everything from on-page optimization to controlling your meta
tags and your title tags.

It even analyzes your content, telling you if you’re doing a good job or a bad job.

It creates sitemaps for you, helps with structure and markup.

It does pretty much what most of the things that you need.

If you want to ensure that your WordPress blog is SEO-friendly, use this plugin.

WordPress is already pretty SEO-friendly, but this plugin puts those last, final touches that are really important.

Today Google wants you to do every little thing right, when you combine them all, then you see the climb in ranking,the extra search traffic, and this plugin will really help you get there.

4. Securi Security

The fourth plugin is Sucuri. If your website gets hacked, you rankings and traffic will tank, and when it tanks and you fix it it’s hard to recover.

Sucuri helps you, prevent from getting hacked.

Though it’s not going to be perfect, but it’s better than nothing.

Just think that your site gets hacked and you lose all your traffic.

I’ve seen this time and time again, someone gets hacked and they figure it out after a week or two, their rankings tank, they fixed it, and they did not recover in 30 days.

Eventually they recover, sometimes it takes two months, sometimes three months, if
they’re lucky it happens quickly.

So make sure you don’t get hacked.

5. AMP For WordPress

The fifth plugin is AMP for WordPress.

This plugin helps with mobile users.

If you want to rank really high and get in on Google News, you should make sure that your site has the AMP framework.

In other words, your tech space articles loads really fast.

Google just posts it on their end. They’re leveraging their own framework, and someone found that, in the United States, by leveraging the AMP framework, he didn’t really get much more mobile traffic,
but other countries where mobile devices and infrastructure isn’t as good, such as Brazil, he saw a huge increase in mobile traffic by just leveraging this plugin.

6. A3 Lazy Load

The sixth plugin for you is a3 Lazy Load.

When you use images on your site, even when you compress them, it still takes time for that webpage to load.

You want to make it where those images load as people scroll, that way you’re not just loading up all these images on a page and it takes forever for that webpage to load when people haven’t even started reading the content and scrolling.

That’s why I like Lazy Load.

You’ll notice that as you read the blog posts, images load as you scroll.

This creates a better experience for you as a user, and search engines prefer this as well.

7. Schema – All In One Schema Rich Snippets

The seventh plugin is – All In One Schema Rich Snippets.

If you want to improve your search visibility by sharing rich snippets between the page title, you should use this plugin.

It’s great and it’s simple to use.

It is one of the best things that you will get out there.

For example, I wouldn’t be using stuff on, a schema markup that’s
relevant for restaurants when I have nothing related to restaurants on my site.

That’ll irritate Google and it’ll hurt you in the long run.

So when you’re using this be nice and kind. Don’t try to abuse schema markup.

8. Really Simple SSL

The eighth plugin is Really Simple SSL.

90% of the websites that rank at the top have an SSL installed.

It has become a prerequisite if you want to rank well. So use the SSL in your site.

Maybe your host provides it, maybe your domain provider provides it.

Whatever it may be, you want a secure site, and what you’ll find is some browsers even notify users, saying “this site isn’t secure,” and that’ll cause people to bounce back, get away from your site, and over time that could decrease your rankings.

You want to make sure you have an SSL installed, it’s that important.

So, if use these eight plugins, you’ll find that
your rankings will start going up over time, especially if you haven’t used any of them, but when you start combining all of them it does help quite a bit.
