Ah, comment spam. Don’t you just love that stuff?
Those pesky little emails and junk mail that come flooding in at every turn are just so much fun…. Sarcasm aside, spam really is very irritating. And spam comments in WordPress are the most irritating of all.
If you want to save yourself a serious headache, then Akismet is the pain reliever of choice.
It helps stave off comment spam and even has the ability to delete all the junk comments on its own so you never have to even see those digital vermin.
Jetpack by WordPress.com
There is a lot to love about the JetPack plugin.
Instead of going in search of a whole bunch of other plugins, Jetpack has a sort one-and-done idea that it is built on.
There are over 30 modules that you can activate to help you run a tighter faster ship:
- Related Posts
- A picture CDN know as Photon
- Site Stats
And quite a few more. You’ll need a WordPress.com account to use and connect the plugin to your site, but it’s well worth the extra step.
WooCommerce is the plugin that revolutionized ecommerce for WordPress.
It took the more difficult aspects of creating and running an online store with WP and made it about as easy as humanly possible.
Though it does take some learning, the ease of use and the many other plugins and companies that support the plugin add a lot to its popularity.
WP Super Cache
Every tried and true online entrepreneur seems to know and understand the need for a fast and reliable website.
Caching a WordPress site is something that is good for providing both of these.
One reason why this plugin is more popular than others is because of it being easy to use and setup. Just install, activate, check a few boxes to configure the plugins and you’re pretty much good to go!
