It’s kind of sad that most of the blog posts you read today (that cover WordPress plugins) only seem to highlight premium plugins (generally, because the blogger gets an affiliate commission). Don’t get me wrong – there are a lot of great premium plugins, and I use many of them myself. However, I wanted to come up with a detailed list of free WordPress plugins that I think are helpful for niche websites and blogs.
You certainly don’t need every one of these plugins for every single niche site you create, but I thought it would be helpful to compile a list that you can reference whenever you’re creating a site, or for a site you already have and want to improve. These plugins are not listed in any particular order.
