    Thanks Will.

    Curious to know if you evaluated Imagify for image compression and how you compare it to ShortPixel. I use Imagify and think it’s great, but maybe Pixel’s a better option??

    Thanks again!

    One plugin that always gets left out when talking about backup is AkeebaBackup. If you are familiar with Joomla, Akeeba Backup is the de-facto standard on Joomla. You just don’t make a website without it.

    I would like to see some of the people writing about WordPress do a test of AkeebaBackup so that more people got to know about it.

    Even the free version lets you do a full backup of your site and it automagically gets packaged in such a way that you only need to upload it to a new server, add a little php-script and run it as a new installer. Genious. And it takes care of rewriting necessary links etc. during the new install.

      It’s dead. It was removed from wordpress.org a few years ago. The last release downloadable from their website is marked as tested up to WP 4.5.

    Always Yoast SEO in these kind of “recommended” plug-ins. I really don’t understand why. Over the past years Yoast SEO has become bloated, not intuitive, extremely intrusive, counter-productive, etc.

    I have the feeling Yoast is always included by these “expert” websites, because it happens to have the most downloads. Never mind exploring much, much better alternatives like The SEO Framework.

    Any blog telling me to install Yoast SEO gets an immediate rating from me. Not in stars, but in: “Not worth following”.

    And don’t get me started on WordFence, the extremely resource intense plug-in that “everyone” needs. Yeah, the lazy blogs that don’t care to explore much better alternatives recommend it. Just because it is so ‘popular’ (read: most downloaded)?

    And JetPack? You must be kidding, right?

    Sorry.
