Top 5 WordPress Plugins for your Site

Looking for the top 5 WordPress plugins for your site? Finding them can be difficult since the WordPress database holds thousands of plugins. Only a few are beneficial to your website and by minimizing the amount of plugins you use, it could make your site run much faster.  Here are some of the top 5 free WordPress plugins for your site:

W3 Total Cache

This is by far, one of the best plugins we have seen. Once you install it, you’ll notice that your WordPress loading time is incredibly faster. Also, when creating new posts or handling multiple comments, it handles everything quickly rather than lagging constantly.

Google XML Sitemap

Having a sitemap is just a way of alerting Google that you actually exist. This free plugin will actually create the sitemap automatically and then notify Google. It also notifies MSN, Yahoo, and other search engines. You can even customize it to show what posts you want added and which to exclude.

PostMash

If you don’t know by now, WordPress will display posts chronologically. However, you may not be able to find your posts this way, especially if you have many. What PostMash does is show your posts while having the option to rearrange them. Use a drag and drop navigation which is very easy to use. This is great for those of you who want a few posts to show up first or someone who is working on a rather long article.

Crawl Rate Tracker

Have you ever wanted to know when Google and other websites go to visit your site? Maybe you just want to know when your new content is being indexed. The Crawl Rate Tracker will actually give you statistics, showing the time and day your content was last crawled. This also lets you know how popular your content really is if you think about it.
