Akismet stops almost all spam, and when paired with having to approve your comments, can really clean up your comment section on your blog!

Need to optimize your blog for search engines? This is the plugin most people swear by! The plugin makes it easier to add additional meta data, focus words and more not only for each post, but per page or category on your website! There is a premium version that offers additional features, but more importantly, their website provides many tutorials and trainings for those who are lost and need help!

(I’m not sponsored, I swear! Haha!)
