WordPress powers 24 percent of the web, and continues to grow as the years go by. WordPress gets even better when bloggers equip themselves with an arsenal of easy and efficient plugins. Below are the 5 most popular WordPress Plugins.

1. Akismet

Comment spamming is by far the most excruciatingly annoying thing to deal with. The best way to deal with this issue is with Akismet, a plugin that not only stops spam comments but also deletes the comments before you even see them.

2. Google XML Sitemaps

In certain scenarios, your page may not be ranking due to something called the sight map. Google XML sitemaps allows for Google to crawl and read your site better, and helps rank your site higher (assuming this is the problem)

3. Contact Form 7

Does your site use surveys? Need a registration page? Contact Form 7 is simplistic and builds different types of contact forms, and allows you to create boxes with a “required” tag next to it, all without the use of special CSS coding.

4. Jetpack

Jetpack is like the jack of all trades in that it provides 30 modules that help you run your site more efficiently with the sufficient amount of data collected from statistics. It includes things such as:

  • Related Posts
  • A picture CDN known as Photon
  • Site Stats

5. Woo Commerce

Woo Commerce takes ecommerce to a whole new level. With definitive features, it provides easy solutions to difficult aspects of running an online store on WordPress. Although it may take some getting used and learn, it is one hundred percent worth it.
