Do you have a WordPress website? These are the five best plugins for your website.
WordPress has a range of plugins to comply with the RGDP and make your website a safe place for everyone. The most prominent are the following:
WP GDPR Compliance: Allows you to add checkboxes automatically. With this plugin, your site visitors can give their consent for you to process their data. In addition, visitors to your site can request their data from the database to delete them.
WP DSGVO Tools: This allows you to use templates for privacy texts that comply with the law and easily configure Google Analytics and the Facebook pixel in compliance with the GDPR. In addition, it also allows you to create a cookie banner and make user data downloadable in PDF or JSON format and delete it.
WP GDPR: Allows the personal data of your website visitors (emails and comments) to be accessible and delectable.
Well, these are the best-known and recommended plugins for your website. We encourage you to try them and thus be sure that your website complies with the GDPR.
SEO Plugins for Your WordPress Website
If you want more organic traffic to your website, you need to optimize your pages and content for search engines. This is where WordPress SEO plugins come into the picture.
Unfortunately, there are hundreds of them. Deciding which one is the best is a job in itself. And if you’re not familiar with SEO, you may choose the plugin with “the most” features but end up crippling your website.
Although each has a unique approach to SEO, most of these plugins have similar features. Select one and see if it suits your style. If not, try the next one.
Let us begin!
With over 5 million downloads, Yoast is currently the de facto king of WordPress SEO plugins. If you still can’t choose at the end of this article you still can’t decide, I recommend you try Yoast.
For starters, Yoast has SEO Analysis and Readability for every post and page on the website. SEO analysis checks your post or page is optimized according to your focus keyword phrase. The readability feature will let you know how “readable” you are to human visitors.
As you can see in the image below, you can also set the Outline and Social Preview of the post or page directly from the same meta box.
You can also use Yoast to integrate with third-party platforms like SEMrush, Google Search Console, and Bing Webmaster Tool. There is also a feature that will allow you to change the search appearance of your website and its related settings.

Lastly, you can always run the SEO Setup Wizard to set things up immediately (or if you’re not that familiar with SEO). The wizard will guide you through the different settings you can configure on various aspects of your website.
Yoast SEO Installation Wizard for WordPress
Yoast has a free version, and that’s usually enough for most people. However, if you need more features, such as in-plugin keyword research, real-time suggestions for internal links, or using more than one focus keyword phrase, Yoast SEO Premium is available for just $89.
If there’s one plugin comparable to Yoast (or even better), that’s Rank Math. While it’s new on the market, it’s gaining favour in the sight of many web admins and bloggers because of its modular approach to SEO.
That’s cool — you can turn off the SEO modules you don’t need. This decreases the bloat of the plugin though you can rest easy that Rank Math will in no way slow down your website.
Like Yoast, Rank Math will also analyze your content’s SEO optimization and readability. Even with Rank Math’s free version, the difference is that you can have more focus keywords to check.
In addition, Rank Math checks the readability of the content’s title. You can also set advanced settings, change the Schema, and set up the social preview of the content when shared on Facebook and Twitter.

Currently, Rank Math is free to use. But they’re already preparing to release more features behind a paywall with their pro version. So if you like Rank Math’s modular approach, better download it now while all the current features are free to use.
