Great question. I'm wondering about how to find Google Webmaster Tools and is this the best?
Reply

Webmaster tools is not a plugin or widget - go to https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ - and set up your account -

Also be sure to set up Google Analytics as well - https://www.google.com/analytics

You will need/use both of these moving forward with your business

Thank you so much. I was really confused about that.

No problem, you'll also find video webinars from Jay on both webmaster tools and google analytics - just do a search here and they will come up

Just write it in the search. It is now called Google Search Console.
I did not compare it with any other so I do not know if there is something better out there.

One more addition to the list of plugins:

WP Super Cache - A great plugin for speeding up your WordPress site by creating static html files from the dynamic content and caching them.

This is a list of plugins that I usually use for every WordPress based website I make. Choosing plugins isn't always easy, but it helps to have a set of basic plugins that you know work well.

There are many alternative options to these as well, but I listed here the ones I usually use.

Yoast SEO – for SEO (search engine optimization); helps making your site, pages and posts SEO friendly
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/


Akismet – to prevent comment spam (usually preinstalled with your theme)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet/
https://akismet.com/ (you need an Akismet account to use the plugin)


Contact Form 7 – to add a contact form to your website (sends messages to your email address)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/


Flamingo – an add-on plugin to Contact Form 7 – saves all messages sent through contact forms to your site’s Dashboard. This is great because if your email service is down or there is some other glitch along the way, the messages will not get lost.

Head, Footer and Post Injections – Great plugin for adding additional code to your site.

I suggest you spend some time in the certification training. All of these topics are covered there. If you don't go through the certification training you will just get lost.

Hi Grace!

On your WordPress dashboard select from the sidebar on the left:
Plugins -> Add new
A new page opens. On that page there is a text box on the right side of the screen saying "Search plugins..."
Write the name of the plugin you want to install there. Press Enter.
WordPress loads plugins that match the search.

You should find the plugin from the search results. Click "Install Now".

WordPress starts to install the plugin. When the installation is ready, you have to click "Activate" button or "Activate now" link, depending on how the installation process works.

Now the plugin has been installed and activated, and is ready to use.

---

When you go to the Plugins main page, the plugin should be on the list now. Depending on the plugin you can access its settings from the Plugins list also, but usually the plugin will add itself somewhere to the sidebar menu.

Hope this answered your question!
