Hi Warriors,
I just built a new blog, and I have noted that there are very many changes in the plugins - the last time I built a blog was 6 years ago!

What are the new must have plugins today?

PS:
My checklist from those yester years is still intact.

    Hey, dee4d!

    Here are my top five WP plugins that can help your SEO:

    1. Yoast
    Yoast is my favorite WP plugin. It's doing your work so easy when you're writing a new post directly on your WP admin panel. Yoast helps to focus on a keyword for each page of your site, add breadcrumbs, have custom meta header and description. It makes pay attention to optimizing images with alt tags. Just give it a try. It's very nifty.

    2. Broken Link Checker
    Another useful plugin. You know that having broken links on your site is affecting your On Page SEO negatively. Plenty of experts in the digital marketing field are making use of this smart plugin. Here's what Mr. Mario Peshev CEO and Founder of Devrix says about this plugin in particular:

    If you don't monitor your site with SEMrush or Ahrefs, broken links may interfere with your marketing funnels. Broken Link Checker is a handy tool that keeps an eye on your website and reports outdated or inactive links, letting you update your content before disappointing your readers.

    3. WPtouch Mobile Plugin
    According to SEJ There are 5.5 million blogs using this plugin. There is a a paid and a free version.

    4. SEO Friendly Images
    This plugin helps you to resize your images. Also, it has a feature called lazy loading that saves bandwidth and makes your site faster. It's basically telling the images on each page to load only when the user scrolls to them. "SEO Friendly Images" updates all images with ALT and TITLE attributes and is easy to set up.

    5. Rankie
    If you have just one blog and you're not doing clients SEO, then give Rankie a look. It helps your track your ranking and a few other things.
