  3. Yoast SEO = Meta, Title Tags, SEO, Sitemaps, Structured Markup.
  4. AMP for WP = Accelerated Mobile Pages.
  5. A3 Lazy Load = Load images as scrolling down the page for speed optimization, load what you need when you need it.
  6. Schema = All In One Schema Rich Snippets.
  7. Really Simple SSL – SSL Setup.
  8. All in One WP Migration – Backup and Migrate WP Sites.
  9. All in One Security – Bash Security / Custom WP-Login URL.
  10. WordFence – Over All Security, 2FA.
  11. Flamingo – for storing Contact Form 7 forms in the wp database.
  12. Contact Form 7 – The standard in WordPress forms.
  13. WP Mail SMTP – Connect Gmail API to post submit from WordPress forms.
  14. Tidio Chat – Free live chat I use for my clients on a budget (and the one I use on this site too!).
