2021 Best WordPress Plugins For SEO

I think I did one of these articles in 2019 so its time to update the Best WordPress Plugins list for 2021. As an SEO minded person these will tend to lean towards that end of the spectrum but as we continue to see speed and mobile optimization has brought some highly technical requirements into the SEO realm. That expansion of SEO lends itself to an expansion of SEO plugins. 2021 Top WordPress Plugins
  1. Asset Cleanup: Page Speed Booster – The most damning thing to your site’s speed performance is typically the number of requests it makes to render your page. All those plugins you use likely come with js and css files each, many come with more than one set. So if you have 20 or 40 plugins you easily will have over a hundred files required to load a page and its mostly just needless bloat. For instance, if you have Contact 7 for forms …. you don’t need that plugins support files loading on pages that dont have a form on them. But … they are there and wasting your SEO time. This plugin allows you to offload what isn’t needed and then combine what is …

Ultimate SEO And A Louisville Forward Grant – Coronavirus Update

Note: An update to this is available at the bottom Just a flash update on Ultimate SEO LLC. In July we were awarded a grant for redesigning our site and using local contractors by the Metro Louisville Covid Relief Grant administered by Louisville Forward. Another 800+ businesses were awarded these grants that were meant to serve as a lifeline to local businesses. The grant though is yet to be useful now 6 months later as only a third of it was ever funded, despite the grant period requiring all funds to be spent by Dec. 30 2020. Ultimate SEO is unlikely the only organization left hanging by the Louisville Forward grant. The reporting requirements seem to be impossible for the city to actually review. I submitted an initial report on Sept 5 2020 and only the last week of December did they request about 60 additional pages to the already 30 page report. If we consider the average report being 90 pages and 800 businesses must report twice that amounts to 144,000 pages of documents. If a team of auditors is able to work through 10 companies a week it may take another year and a half before these “vital” …

Buying A Domain Is Much Like Buying A Car

What Is A Domain Worth? Buying An Aftermarket Domain.

Buying a domain that is already registered is a complex process, but that centers around a simple fact.¬† A domain’s value is equal to the amount someone is willing to pay for it.¬† Its not what a seller is willing to sell it at, cause I can tell you I’ll sell “” for a billion dollars but it isn’t worth that until someone will pay that.

  • The length
  • The TLD ( is it a .com or a .wtf )
