Which Plugins Do You Use?

There is no any blog in the world running without any plugin.

Even when you install the WordPress, it comes with 2-3 plugins which we (or we don’t) delete or turn them off.

My this post is very straight forward.

I won’t take your so much time. 🙂

And it is just the research I want to conduct to find out what my good friends are using in terms of WordPress plugins.

So in this case, I may land on some too-awesome plugins to try on my place.

And many other fellow bloggers may find out of which plugins do you use as being experienced bloggers.

Let me start listing up what I am using.

Which Plugins I am using on my WordPress blog

I am using:


Broken Link Checker


EWWW Image Optimizer

Fast Secure Contact Form

Genesis eNews Extended

Remove query strings from static resources

Simple Social Icons


W3 Total Cache

Wordfence Security


Yoast SEO

These are total of 13 active plugins I am using at my place.

And here’s the screen-shot from my plugin’s page:

Which plugins do you use?

Which plugins I so admire?

I would say Akismet, Broken Link Checker, CommentLuv, SuMoMe, W3 Total Cache, and Yoast SEO.

These are the most-useful plugins for me, I believe.

SuMoMe out of the list is the all-rounder plugin, coming with email boxes, sharing, heat maps, etc. So, if you’re not using SuMoMe for now and you’d like to try it out, give it a try and experience the power of this small plugin.

So, which plugins do you use?

Now, here comes your turn. 🙂

Do share with me the list of active plugins you’re using up on your WordPress blog.

Who knows who finds out of the useful plugins.

Only criteria is to only share the active plugins and even possible, share the screen-shot of the plugin’s page.

Happy bloggin’! 🙂

Good post Adeel,

I am using almost the same plugins which you are using. But there are two more plugins which admire those are click to tweet and mailchimp.

Thanks for raising this topic on your website.

    Adeel Sami - August 3, 2016

    Hello, Umesh!

    It is exciting to know that I am using almost all of such plugins that you’re already using. 🙂

    I had Click to Tweet in use but recently removed it off as I am searching for another fancier plugin (you know that it is too simple 🙂 … )

    And I have MailChimpt integrated so that no plugin I have installed to take the maximum benefit out of MailChimp. 🙂

    Thank you for your revelation of the plugins you’re using! 🙂

    Hey, Nikhil!

    Awesome knowing your favorite plugins! 🙂

    W3 Total Cache is the must-have plugin. And UpDraft Plus is new to me, I will dig into it more.

Technically, it ain’t so different from your list, but I used Easy Social Share Buttons Plugin for social button optimizing. It came some kind of tool that can help to remove string from resource files, thus I don’t Remove query strings from static resources. Also, I used premium content plug, and do love that plugin.

    Adeel Sami - August 3, 2016

    Hello, Kim!

    Impressive additions you have in your plugins’ inventory!

    I, too, am thinking to try out some other social sharing buttons and would look deep into Easy Social Share Buttons.

    Remove Query Strings is working great for me, it helps in gaining some green marks under performance.

    Thank you for your input, buddy! 🙂

nice list of plugins you got there bruh. there are plenty plugins for wordpress and different cms, but it all comes to what you want to achieve and what is your goal, thank you for the piece.

Torsten Mueller - August 1, 2016

Hi Adeel,

my list of plugins is very similar to yours, yet I want to mention that I also use a backup plugin that automatically creates a backup of the entire blog and saves it to my dropbox account. It’s just to be on the safe side, in case the backup from my hosting provider fails.

Have a great day,

Mudasir Yasin - August 2, 2016

Hi Adeel bro,

I have some quite different plugins that you are using, Some of the basic plugins are the same like Yoast SEO, WP-Optimize, Wordfence Security, Broken Link Checker etc, but Some different I am using is as follow: AMP, Captcha by BestWebSoft, CloudFlare, Google XML Sitemaps, WP Fastest Cache.

I feel W3 Total Cache is too confusing to manage so I use WP Fastest Cache quite simple.

Have a great Day 🙂

Aamir Saleem - August 3, 2016

Yoast SEO and Akismat i’ll personally used, but overall your list is awesome bro. Thanks adeel for sharing this awesome guide.

Ravi Chahar - August 4, 2016

Hi Adeel,

There are many plugins present in the market. Whether you want to use the free plugins or the pro. It depends upon you.

I use Akismet and many others. Though I don’t use any SEO plugin but still SEO Yoast is one of the best plugins we have in the segment.

Great post indeed.
Enjoy the day.

    Adeel Sami - August 5, 2016

    Hello, Ravi!

    I am mostly running the free ones and I tell you they are doing the awesome jobs! 🙂

    Akismet is really the best WordPress plugin to keep the obvious spam to the fence.

    And I cannot believe you’re not using any of the SEO plugin!! How come?? 😮

    Thank you for your valuable input, buddy! 🙂

    You too enjoy your day!

Thanks for sharing.

Fahad Mirza - October 23, 2016

Thanks Adeel Sami for sharing your favorite and loved plugins.
I am new to WordPress and Hassaan Khan has advised me not to add to much plugins but I think you have installed too much.
Can these plugins effect your site?
