Speed is an important aearch engine factor. It is also important for visitors. Because no one likes to wait, Generally visitors never wait for more than 4 seconds. If a blog doesn't load after 4-5 seconds, they will close it and open another. That's why, we need to maintain speed.

For this, we need a plugin which generates cache on the browser of visitor and loads the pages much faster.

Actually, i don't know, how to use a caching plugin. That's why, i can't write more about this plugin

W3 Toatal Cache is one of the must have plugins for wordpress blogs.

Alternatives to W3 toal cache : Wp Super Cache etc.

9. Broken Link checker and Redirection

A combination of Broken Link checker and Redirection is awesome.

The first plugin Broken Link Checker scans all your URL'S and check for broken links. Because Broken Links can cause huge loss of ranking in search engines. Broken Links are really bad for SEO. But after finding Broken links, we need to redirect them to avoid loss of ranking.

That's why, we use Redirection plugin to redirect the broken links. Redirection is a best plugin to redirect all the broken links.

That's why, A combination of these plugins are one of the must have plugins for wordpress blogs.

10. Ad Injection

Ad injection is a plugin that helps you to add advertisements of Google Adsense,, Amazon affiliates and all other as networks which offers an ad code to place in our blog.

With Ad injection, you don't need to edit template at all, Even you wanna place an ad in footer, that is possible. Because Ad injection, offers us to place ad codes in Header, Sidebar, Middle of the content, Random placement, Footer etc.
