The technical side of our blog is probably one of the most difficult and we dream that there shoud be someone who could do this for us. But what happens when we have to do everything ourselves? We could rely on technology and some plugins that could help us to maintain a blog and make it run smoothly so that our readers won’t have any problems. This kind of help on WordPress is called plugin, it can automate some process to make our blogger life simpler. Today I want to share with you what are the essentials wordpress plugins for fashion and beauty bloggers.
WordPress SEO By Yoast
You know well what’s SEO (I’m writing a guide about SEO so in case you don’t know about it check this blog soon 😉 ) the magic thing that make our blog be founded from our readers through the search results. SEO well done means more readers and we always want to make more page views and grow our blog traffic so to help with SEO there is an amazing plugin that could help us to insert the right keywords of our posts and that could tell us what’s the status of our SEO and it also tells us exacly what we need to do to improve it (increasing the text, adding images to the post, add more links …)
W3 Total Cache
The speed of our site is fundamental! This wordpress plugin can help us to remove the cache and other things to make our blog be faster and to make it performe better in terms of reader accessibility.
If you write your content in more than one language you need this plugin. At the beginning I wrote in one post both in English and in Italian. Now for a year I’ve been using this plugin that differentiate completely the English and the Italian versions of the blog. Your posts will have two different URLs so that they are much better indexed.
Pinterest Pin It Button for Images
Pinterest is great to grow your fashion and beauty blog! It can really makes the difference. Consider that differently form the other socials on Pinterest also the oldest posts can drive traffic to your blog. If you have a fashion or beauty blog this plugin is a must, it automatically adds the pin it button to your images so it will be easier for your readers to pin your images. The more your contents are shared the more traffic you’ll receive on your blog.
If you’re a fashion or beauty blogger you surely upload lots of images on your blog when creating a post. Images take up a lot of space and this mean that your site could become slower by the time. We said previously that the speed of the site is fundamental. That’s why you need this plugin that reduces automatically the images dimensions when you upload them and can help to reduce also the already uploaded images.
