The great thing about using WordPress to build your website is that it has a plugin for almost everything you can imagine. I have a bad attitude about websites now…It is almost a lazy attitude. I no longer worry about designing or tweaking my website as I know I can easily find the best WordPress theme and a thousand handy WordPress plugins to enhance my website.
You can get Search Engine Optimization Plugins, traffic getting plugins, ones that make auto links, make auto posts, make different sections on your website, and more.. Installing a WordPress plugin is so easy a two year old could do it.
How to install a WordPress plugin?

4. Now press search.
5. A list will apear. Press on the install link under the plugin you choose.
6. You will be asked to activate the plugin.
The next thing you need to do is configure the plugins settings. Some plugin settings are under the settings menu, however some are in the tools menu. Others are in the main menu, usually at the bottom. The only way to find the actual plugin settings is to open your eyes and look!
