Five WordPress Plugins That You Will Love Using

WordPress is regarded as the best Content Management System (CMS) in the world. It is used by many popular websites. But no one can deny that one of the reasons WordPress is so popular is because it has a collection of large number of plugins which are very useful. They provide various functionality and helps people to get the most out of their website.

WordPress have plugins that are both free and paid, but most of them runs on the “freemium” model. I am discussing here three plugins that you should try once, and I am sure you will love it. I personally use these plugins in iCuriousGeek( except WooCommerce) and I love it.

Though WordPress has numerous plugins which are very useful, it’s not possible for me, or anyone, to write all of them in a single post. So I am writing about five that I love the most. So, let’s get started.

1) Site Kit

If you have a website, I am sure you want to view the stats of the website. And to do that, the best tool out there in the market is Google Analytics. Moreover, you may also monetise your site using AdSense, and you will definitely want to look at your earnings.

To do all these tasks, you will have to visit the respective sites manually. But, with Site Kit, you can view all those stats right in your WordPress dashboard. Though that doesn’t mean that you don’t need to visit the respective sites at all. For setting up Google Analytics and Google AdSense, you are required to visit the respective sites, but once accounts are set up, you can connect those accounts with Site Kit and monitoring the stats will be a lot easier.

2) WooCommerce

If you want to sell things, WooCommerce is the plugin for you. Though I don’t use WooCommerce on iCuriousGeek website as of now, but it will be the one I will choose if I ever need an online store. WooCommerce let’s you convert your website into an online store. You can list your products, prices, stock units, etc. You can also integrate payment gateways or shipment service providers. The whole interface of WooCommerce makes e-commerce on your website way easier. WooCommerce also provides a mobile app for Android and iOS to let you manage your store from your phone.
