1. Limit login attempts
As a website owner, you never want to face a hacker’s attack. Not the prime security, but downloading and installing, this plugin will give you security up to some extent. This will primarily secure you from brute force attack.
Brute force attack is the hacker’s attack in which the hacker tries to log in to the website by using every possible combination of characters.
One logical way to save your website form this attack is to give a limited number of login attempts to the user and this is what this plugin does.

It is known as open source software. Without even asking I can tell that you like speed and moreover when it is on downloading the web page. Your website will conquer hearts once you install this plugin. The loading speed will go skyrocketing and the results will be unexpected. Working on this plugin is very simple to understand. What usually happens is that once you request a web page on a WordPress based website, the entire content, including the photos and the videos get loaded.
Thus, the process takes a lot of time making it very slow. This plugin will help your speed by saving a copy of your website on the server and making it easy to be fetched. This decreases the fetching time and increases the performance of your website.

This is really useful to fully assess the current situation and to formulate the strategy for future.
Best part of this plugin is that it gives you an instant reply of your customers on your new business idea. For using it you need not load the entire page, logging into WordPress through the plugin will do the work.

It is a well known fact that the power of content in the website is supreme. However, it is not that you can just put in whatever you wish. For increasing your ranking in the search engine results and traffic you need to have an SEO of your content.
Yoast SEO is a really good plugin that reviews your content and grades it like a traffic light (with the green being best and red being improvement needed). SEO content is very important as it puts you up in search results, hence automatically giving you the visitors’ preference.
5. Akismet Anti-Spam
One of the most annoying things in being in blogging business is spam blog comments. It just comes time to go through the spam comments. Not only your temperament, but it is also bad for your SEO ranking. This is a big problem and this plugin gives you the finest solution. The main working of this plugin is based on creating a database.
Once you install it, you are also included in a database. It stores the IP address of all the spam comments no matter on which site of its database it is done. This helps it to flag the comment if the same user tries to comment. Hence it helps you to distinguish between the two.
