There are many WordPress plugins available, and it can be difficult to know which ones are the best. These are my favourite WordPress plugins at the moment.

Best WordPress Plugins


WP Rocket – Smart, works with lots of different hosting companies, always innovating.

Siteground hosting usersSiteGround Optimizer – it does all of the main things caching providers do but more importantly is the only way to really clear the cache that occurs before the WordPress part starts.


Imagify : Part of the WP Rocket family so works great with it. Also very reasonable pricing for single sites and developers.


Yoast SEO: – Donates more time to improving WordPress than any other WordPress company other than the one owned by the WordPress founder.

This means they also have the most insights into what’s coming and they also work with Google on this too.


Gravity Forms – Compatible with most things in the WordPress ecosystem. Has so many things you can add to it to do almost anything involving collecting data.

WSForms – for really complex forms


Ithemes Security Pro – least intrusive, great dashboard, works.

Siteground hosting usersSiteGround Security is made for your hosting, has all the main staple features of a security plugin and is free.

Tracking Code Manager – this is perfect to add code for verifying Google Search Console for example or other things that need code added to header, body etc.


UpdraftPlus – the most reliable backups tool I’ve used and it’s free.


Duplicate Page (by mndpsingh287) – this makes life easy when you want to just copy a page, post, product, custom page set eg ‘Events’ you already made perfectly and just want to use the same design again instead of starting from scratch.
