WordPress Database Backups

This is a popular plug-in which is used to keep the backups of a site. If there is any chance to crash the database of the site, in that worst situation this plugin will help the blogger to restore the data. It will help you to download backups of your entire data source manually.

Moreover if you are looking for a more sophisticated and premium backup plugin for complete database, themes, plugins and every settings then try Backup Buddy or Backup Creator for a finer solution.

Limit Login Attempts

To prevent WordPress from brute force attack the plugin Limit login attempts play an important role to guard your site. The plugin can limit the maximum number of logins from a IP and can block a specific IP address from multi-trying. Moreover it can also email you automatically to inform about the attempt(s). I am using it for almost all my WP sites and consider it as one of the top 10 plugins.

Gocodes Affiliate Link Cloaking Plugin

Gocodes is the best free affiliate link cloaking plugin (from my view) for any WordPress sites. It hides the ugly affiliate links and make the affiliate links a pretty cool one like www. example. com/recommended/products.

Hey Taswir,
Nice list. Undoubtly Akimat is a nice plugin, But the problem is it puts many genuine comments to spam. So GASP can be a good alternative of Akismat. As I am using thesis, I don’t need to use All in One SEO.
Unfortunately WPtouch doesn’t work for me.

Salam, All-in-one SEO Pack still working, i heard that its not working any more/


Taswir Haider

W. Salam. All-in-one SEO still works and you can try SEO by yoast too. Some premium themes like thesis, genesis has built-in seo which is far better than these built-in plugins.

Taswir Haider

Most welcome Pankaj. Gocodes is the link cloaking plugin, has no relation with footer and others. Hosting companies normally backup upto a certain limit, so you can use a premium plugin for a complete backup.

It works as a free plugin still but there are better options like paid plugin and built-in options of premium themes


Larry James

Hi Taswir, I always like to read posts about what plugins other bloggers are using. I just wanted to let you know that I use Genesis premium themes which has built in SEO, but I still use the WordPress SEO by Yoast which includes it’s own sitemap plugin so you know longer need Google XML Sitemaps.

Taswir Haider

Hi James you are 100% right. If you use SEO by Yoast then you do not need to add additional XML sitemaps. Too many plugins surely slow down any site.
