Writing is my HobbyImage Credit: Flickr

Over the past several months I’ve collected a ton of good resources about how to write a perfect blog post. So I thought it’s better to do a mashup than simply rewriting/reposting what’s already said in the blogosphere. So I’ll be focusing on writing a blog post that’s well optimized and that attracts search engine and social media love.

As you probably know, there are a lot of bloggers who write really awesome content but the problem is their blog posts are not so optimized. The reason could be they don’t care about SEO much or they are not so tech-savvy so they don’t know how to optimize their blog posts. Hence I believe that this blog post will also help the not so tech-savvy bloggers (food blogs, personal blogs) so that they can optimize their existing and future blog posts to skyrocket the traffic.

Over 30 Awesome WordPress Plugins To Supercharge Your Blog

WordPress 2014

If you have just started a new WordPress blog (you should start one if you haven’t) then it’s extremely difficult to find the best WordPress plugins as there are over 29,000 plugins available in the WordPress Plugins Directory. I’ve already featured the Top 25 WordPress Plugins, of 2012 and 2013, here and here respectively.

So this is my 2014 list and today, I’m going to feature over 30 plugins and these are my personal favorites. That said, I’m not currently using all of them as I try to keep the number of active plugins less than 20. Why? Because using too many plugins affects the performance of your blog. Also, a single plugin that’s flawed can degrade your blog’s overall performance and it may even impact your search engine ranking as Page Loading Speed is now one of the ranking signals used by search engines.

So make sure that you’re installing only the plugins that you really need. One easy way to check the credibility of a plugin is by checking its Ratings, Downloads, and Last Updated stats on WordPress.org and that’s why this time I’ve included these three stats of each plugin at the time of writing here.

I have tried my best to avoid listing two plugins that do the same job but I’ve mentioned the duplicates as “Alternative(s)” so that you can try them if you don’t like the one that I have featured here. Also, I’ve included some plugins as “Add-ons”, they’re not duplicates and they can be used along with the other plugins listed here.
