6. Manycontact Bar
ManyContacts is an attention¬-grabbing contact form that sits at the top of your website and helps to collect subscribers (email addresses for example) for your blog. This plugin could be useful if you want to send out newsletters to your followers.
7. WordPress SEO Yoast
You should not underestimate this plugin. It forces you to choose a focus keyword when you’re writing your articles. Ever since I used this Yoast to write my articles I can see a tremendous growth in my visits through search engines, all because of this plugin!
8. Editorial calendar
The editorial calendar gives you an overview of your blog and when each post will be published. You can drag and drop to move posts, edit posts right in the calendar, and manage your entire blog. Super handy if you work ahead with articles.
9. WP hide post
This plugin excels in giving you full control over the visibility of your post. Sometimes, you want to create a “low-profile” addition to your blog that doesn’t belong on the front page, or maybe you don’t want it to show up anywhere else in your blog except when you explicitly link to it. This plugin allows you to create such “hidden gems”.
If you want to update your readers as quickly as possible, then this plugin is the most flexible publishing environment to make that happen. You can use this for example to make a fashion show report or when you are at an event.
11. Lockdown WP admin
You can customize your WordPress security. For example by changing the admin login page URL will reduce the chance to be hacked.
12. Login lockdown
