(Page 1 of 2 )


Your WordPress site could fall victim to a variety of unfortunate events such as hacking attacks or server errors.  For this reason, you should always keep a backup of your site's database and files.  WP-DBManager is a backup plugin that can help you keep updated backups of your database to ensure that all of your hard work does not get flushed down the drain.

WP-DBManager is very easy to install and use.  You can use it to schedule automatic database backups that can be sent to you via email.  It also allows you to choose only certain items to back up if you want to be more selective.

W3 Total Cache

As they say, speed is everything, especially when it comes to browsing the web.  When a user visits your site, you want them to enjoy their experience.  The last thing you want is for them to get frustrated over slow performance.  Pages that load slowly can cause a user to leave the website in a hurry, and they may not come back.  To improve your user experience and optimize your site's performance, you should download W3 Total Cache.

W3 Total Cache, as its name would suggest, caches every aspect of your site.  This improves your site's overall performance.  Once installed, look forward to pages that load faster and happier visitors.

WordPress Editorial Calendar

Running a website requires plenty of organization.  By default, the WordPress CMS does not provide an organizational tool that provides you with a solid overview of your past and present posts.  This can make your site's management a tough task.  Thanks to the WordPress Editorial Calendar plugin, it does not have to be so tough.

WordPress Editorial Calendar provides a calendar that lets you easily view and manage your posts.  The plugin gives you a quick overview of when your posts will go live, has drag and drop capability, allows you to edit post content, and much more.

Google Analyticator

If you change your site's themes regularly, Google Analyticator is a must.  It automatically adds the necessary JavaScript code to your site, eliminating the need to manually edit and modify code.  In addition, Google Analyticator has a dashboard widget that displays a variety of tracking stats, such as site usage, top searches and referrers, a graph of the site's last 30 days of traffic, and more.

SEO Smart Links

Building your PageRank should be on your priority list, as Google uses it to determine the importance of pages on the web.  One way to build PageRank is through the use of interlinked articles.  If you have links within one of your articles that lead to other articles on your site, you can increase user interest and show that you have quality content that is probably relevant to their tastes.  The SEO Smart Links plugin does all of this automatically, and is a great SEO booster.

SEO Smart Links takes keywords or phrases in your posts and comments and automatically links them to other relevant posts, pages, etc. on your site.  You can establish keywords of your choice, set matching URLs, and much more.  If you love to save time, this plugin is a must.
