These best free & premium WordPress plugins were hand-picked because they were deemed the most flexible, usable, stable and just plain useful for a wide array of use cases. Most of them are relevant to almost any type of WordPress website.
I have tested out the vast majority of them myself and for the ones I have not tested personally I relied on popularity and average ratings to determine inclusion. Only the best made the list. I hope you find this well-researched list useful.

Good article. I think it would be really usefull to focus little bit more on content creating plugins, because in the end the most important for a website is to be attractive for users.
There is a great solution from h5p.org (https://wordpress.org/plugins/h5p/) to create for free highly cusgtomized and interactive content like interactive vidoes, images, quizzes etc. I really like this plugin because you can create various summaries, images with hotspots and even games with html5.
Hi Andy, thanks a lot for this great list. It just has one little flaw: we’re not on there
We’ve built a 100% free, innovative (!), so-easy-that-my-granny-can-use-it-plugin which allows bloggers to add social & share icons to their blogs, give them counts, add pop-ups and many other features. Please have a look: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-social-media-icons/. Your feedback as expert-reviewer would be highly appreciated – we’ll build it into the plugin!
This is really a great list of Best Free and Paid WordPress Plugins. Find some awesome and new plugins and hope those will help me to get more traffic in my blog.
