20 allies in content marketing: Plugins for WordPress

July 25, 2016 Back to blog

Part of the success of WordPress must be their Add-ons or plug-ins. There are lot of both free plug-ins as paid, and each user downloads the one that suits best their needs.

WordPress is a content management system founded by Matt Mullenweg and has achieved great importance in the creation of blogs. This tool allows us to generate content within an interface very easily without needing the knowledge of programming.

Part of their success is due to its add-ons and plug-ins. It is any extension that allows you to perform any function for which it initially not was thought of. We will tell you about some amazing ones that are for free.


The essential 5:


Contact form 7: in its initial version, WordPress had no contact form. With this plugin you will be able to have this valuable form in just a few minutes.

Itheme security: protects WordPress from unwanted attacks.

Duplicator: In the case of wanting to migrate your installation of WordPress this plugin will allow you to easily make a backup. Migration works very intuitively and is taking only a few minutes.

SEO by Yoast: with a good configuration, this plugin improves the SEO of your site by far.

Wp smush: compresses – without changing the quality – images from the site. Accordingly, the time it takes to load the page is reduced considerably.

The other 15 (which we will also be very useful):


Related posts by zemanta: serves so that when you post on your blog and the user you refer to, in turn appears on linked entries related to the post you’re viewing.

Buckets: Very useful if we have a text that is repeated on multiple pages (e.g. a policy of privacy). Using a shortcode of content, with Buckets you can modify only one of the pages, saving you a lot of time.

Easy Timer: to set a countdown timer. It is a countdown. It shows how many days, hours, minutes and seconds are remaining for a certain event. They are used for example to announce a product launch. It helps to create excitement and engagement.

Magic dates: is a count up. The opposite of Easy Timer.

Recent Posts Widget Extended: A more extended version of the original Recent Posts. It serves to show the most recent articles in WordPress. It helps to communicate to Google that we are active, and so that our visitors will find info more easily.

Admin: Allows access from within WordPress to our database via a menu generated by the plugin.

Wp-emmet: used to write entries starting in html code. It is for those who prefer working with code instead of the visual interface.

Display boxes: for when we have a series of widgets we want to appear on some pages and in others not. From the moment of having it installed, we will be able to decide where we want to see this widget.

Maintenance: Temporarily puts our site in maintenance-mode when we are making improvements.

Easy testimonials: allows you to generate a slider or a blog where you can find testimonials about us on our website. In addition, we have templates to configure the aesthetics. It is free with some options, but also offers a more complete paid version.

Page builder by siteorigin: allows laying out the contents of your website but don’t know html. It is the equivalent to Visual Composer (best known paid templates). Your content will not be lost even if at some point we decide to disable it.

Google calendar events: what makes this plugin generate a calendar for your website which we can customize with CSS code using a shortcode.

Envira gallery lite: to create photo galleries in a few minutes in WordPress. The paid version includes videos.

Wp-sweep: with this plugin we clean and, as a consequence, optimize the database.

Zen cache: to improve cache performance. Very simple and helpful to improve the burdens of your blog.
