Plugins for WordPress
The best platform to create websites requires a proper selection of plugins.
Having WordPress nowadays is peace of mind for all of us who work with SEO and web design.
But in many cases, we are faced with outdated backend panels and plugins that worsen performance.
What should we take into account before installing a WordPress plugin?
- It must include future updates: it is very common to find nulled plugins that are nothing more than fake, cracked, or pirated WordPress plugins. Be careful! this is not only a great risk for your website because of the possibility of opening doors to the entry of viruses, but it is also a big problem when you need to download updates, an outdated plugin can cause your website to break, lose design or even throw error messages.
- How many people have downloaded and rated the plugin? We are in the world of ratings and reviews. Everyone looks at the little stars of the offers on the web before buying. As far as we are concerned, it is KEY to rate, but even more so to check the comments left by users. You can get not-so-pleasant surprises even in plugins with thousands of downloads. So, are we going to download it just because everyone else has done it? the answer is NO, we will download plugins only if we have references. For this I recommend you to join Facebook groups that deal with these topics so that experienced colleagues can recommend which plugin to install.
- Free plugins vs premium paid plugins: cheap are expensive is an obvious phrase but in this case, it is strikingly not so true, we can find plugins of excellent quality and free, with their updates. It is always good to educate yourself beforehand but yes, it is possible. Also, of course, we will find plugins to buy with specific functionalities or with complex developments that are the most. But I want to say from experience, I only buy 10% of the plugins I use.
With these tips, you will be a little more able to find plugins and be careful not to get viruses. I don’t recommend you download pirated or nulled WordPress plugins. You can have serious problems.
I wish you a good experience and enjoy the best platform in the world. You can take a look at this WordPress plugin’s site to start with the best ones.
