Many of our users are business owners who often ask us for plugin suggestions. Having the right set of tools can help you take your business to the next level. In this article, we will share the must WordPress plugins for business websites in 2016.
few months ago, WordPress hit a major milestone. It surpassed 25% in worldwide market share. That is to say that more than 25% of all websites are now proudly powered by WordPress. The next closest content management systems aren’t even close to that number.
Suffice it to say that WordPress is incredibly popular. And one of the reasons it is so popular is because of the robust number of plugins for the system that allow webmasters to optimize and customize the system to do anything they need it to do.
There are literally thousands of WordPress plugins. Some are very universal in nature in that they are useful for the vast majority of WordPress users. Others are very specific in nature in that they provide solutions to very specific use cases.
In this post, we’re highlighting a few of the best, most-loved, most-important WordPress plugins in existence. So without further ado, here’s the first plugin:
The speed at which pages on your site load is a huge factor both for SEO and for the user experience of your site’s visitors. If your site takes too long to load, your site visitors will leave before they even fully arrive.
The problem is that every page load on WordPress requires the system to run functions, hooks, and database calls. The pages aren’t just static HTML files ready to be handed to your visitors…that is, until now.
W3 Total Cache is the best WordPress plugin on the market for caching. This is the go-to caching plugin used by some of the biggest websites on the web.

They provide step-by-step instructions on each facet of SEO including real-time feedback as you type into each field with colors and additional instructions that guide you right to where you need to be. This plugin analyzes your titles, descriptions, and content for length, keywords, and so much more.
This is the plugin that the professionals and experts use, and it’s the easiest, most intuitive plugin for novices as well.
