General

Akismet Anti-Spam – After installing this plugin, you no longer need to worry about spam comments and manually approve real comments.

Header and Footer Scripts – Best plugin for inserting custom code such as Google Analytics and other tracking code in your website. What makes it best? This plugin allows you to insert code site-wide(Google Analytics) and on individual posts/pages. This feature comes in handy when you want to insert FAQ Schema or some other custom code.

Fluent Forms – Best Contact Form plugin because, unlike Contact Form 7, which loads its CSS Sitewide, it will only insert Contact Forms CSS and JS on pages where you have inserted Contact Form.

LuckyWP Table of Contents – Table of Contents Plus and Easy Table of Contents are good plugins, but they stop working(Scrolling to Heading) after inserting Links in the Headings. This might not be a problem for most, but a huge problem for Amazon Affiliate Sites.

UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore – Best plugin for taking regular Backups of your Website. You can Backup your website in the current webserver and in remote storage such as Google Drive and restore it with a click.
