There are many reasons why WordPress is used to create so many web designs. There is the massive choice of themes, there is the ease of use, it is free, and perhaps the number one reason, there is the option to add a multitude of features and additional functionality via the use of plugins.
Plugins are what take WordPress from being an excellent web design and CMS platform to an extremely versatile asset for any business which wishes to maximise the effectiveness of its website. Plugins can be installed in seconds, most of them are relatively easy to use, most are free, some are free with paid upgrades, and they can transform the appeal of your website, not just for you, but more importantly, for your visitors.
Now, if we wrote another 1,000,000 words we would still not come close to properly describing every WordPress plugin which is available (55,000 and counting) and some might reasonably argue the fact there are so many makes it more difficult to determine which plugins are worth installing. Instead, we are going to focus on 7 of the top plugins which all add versatility to your website.
