As a website owner, you have to take care of a huge number of things when trying to do your best to promote your website and get as many visitors (or potential customers) as possible. However, if you are building your website using WordPress, you can make use of a plethora of WordPress marketing plugins that make your life a bit easier.

Here are 10 useful marketing WordPress plugins that are certainly worth a try. Hopefully, they will help you promote your website more easily and efficiently.

1. Yoast SEO

I will start things off with a plugin that most of you will have probably heard of before. Yoast SEO is an easy-to-use marketing plugin that helps you compose your posts and pages with a specific keyword in mind, which increases your chances of ranking well for it.

How does it work?

Yoast SEO reads through the text of your post or page as you are writing it and presents you with recommendations on what you can improve to rank well. It focuses on keyword placement, images, headings, readability, and much more. You can even edit SEO titles and descriptions to improve your snippets and hopefully increase the click-through rates of your organic search results.

2. AMP

Accelerated mobile pages are essential for post and page SEO nowadays. Google is increasing its focus on the mobile experience of website users. Luckily, getting AMP set up on your website can be very easy and quick, depending on how many errors you will need to fix.

After installation, wait at least 3 days and check WMT (Webmaster Tools) where you will be able to see how many pages have been indexed. You might see that there 0 indexed pages and a couple of errors. It’s essential to fix all of them in order to get your pages indexed. The indexing process can take up to a few weeks but it’s worth it.

If using AMP and Yoast together then I suggest you also get the Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP plugin. This integrates Yoast SEO into your AMP pages to make sure that your metadata is correct.

The Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP plugin also provides you with a simple way to customise your AMP pages.

3. W3 Total Cache

The performance of your website is also very important. Your visitors hate having to wait for your website to load and search engines know that. That is why your website should load as quickly as possible.

W3 Total Cache plugin helps you speed up your WordPress site in a variety of ways, ranging in complexity, to make your visitors happier and your search engine result positions higher.

4. Broken Link Checker

Displaying links that lead to wrong or non-existing websites can be harmful to your website, both from the perspective of your visitors and search engines.

Broken Link Checker checks all of your content and basically every single link on your WordPress website. If it finds a broken link, you will be quickly notified to correct it. WordPress sites can accumulate a huge number of internal and external links over time and this plugin can help you monitor them and fix them quickly if needed.

5. Title Experiments

AB testing is a very efficient way to get better results (more visitors, better conversion rate, etc).

Title Experiments plugin lets you AB test the titles of your posts. Titles are one of the most important parts of a website, which is why this technique can yield really good results.

Engaging titles get more people to click on them, which generates more visitors and page views.

Using this plugin is really easy. Just create multiple versions of a post title and Title Experiments will track the results each title gets. That way, you will be able to choose the best title with confidence.

6. Inline Related Posts

inline related posts

When a visitor comes to your website, you don’t want them to just read one post and leave. You want them to stay for longer and dig deeper into your website. That is why displaying related posts is often a good idea.

Many WordPress themes allow you to display related posts at the end of the page. However, visitors often don’t get to the end of the page before they leave. Use Inline Related Posts to display posts that a visitor may also enjoy as a part of the post. This technique can help you greatly increase the number of page views you get.

7. Editorial Calendar

A few other features include :

  • View all of your content in one place by date, category, or author
