What Plug ins to use

They help you to customise your blog and add in some useful information and applications

There are so many plugin, have a look thorough what is available and install ones you want to try

Remember to activate your plugins after installing

You can always de-active a plugin at a later stage or immediately if you don’t feel it is right for your site

By law, you need to let visitors to your website know that you use cookies. You are using cookies if you are using Google Analytics, display advertising or affiliate marketing

The best and easiest plugin I have found for this is one called Cookie Law Info

I also recommend installing Jetpack, it is a plugin that comes with loads of handy features

If you try it and decide it isn’t for you just de-active


Yoast is one of the best plugins I have used in order to drive traffic to my blog

After you have installed it, as you are writing your blog posts there is a traffic light system. It will prompt you to change things in your post to turn the light green, which means it is great for search engines to find it

It also looks at your readability and gives you suggestions on improving it


This is a must have plugin for protecting your blog from spam comments, people or bots will leave comments with all kinds of spam on your blog posts


An about page tells both your readers and any potential sponsors/brands more about you

It offers a brief snapshot of your personality and what they can expect to get from your blog

Mine is here 

Privacy policy

If you are using Adsense, Google Analytics to track your views, or even Jetpack stats then you need a privacy policy


According to the Advertising Standards Agency, you need to declare your sponsored posts and affiliate links on your blog

I have my disclaimer as the page footer on each of my pages and a sponsored post will always state its sponsored, either within the text or at the end of the post

Google Analytics

You should register for Google Analytics

You can pick a plugin where you just need to place your tracking id into it once and it will track everything


It is a great idea to collect email addresses of people whoo read your content, this plug in allows you to create a pop up prompting readers to subscribe

Even if you aren’t currently doing anything with these email addresses it is still a good idea to collect them

These are just the tip of the iceberg and as your blog develops you may we find you add more and more plug ins to your site

Hopefully this helped give you more of an understanding of what technical information is useful when setting up a blog. There is still so much more to learn too

    It’s truly very complex in this busy life to listen news on TV,
    so I simply use web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date news.
