Some of Plugin are new for me, I am using Wordspress SEO by yoast, it’s really very great plugin even in Free version. If you are using WordPress SEO by yoast then there is no need to use Google XML sitemap.
Sitemap is already in Yoast Plugin. and it’s great feature of this plugin.
I have great method to optimize image size. If you don’t want to use Image optimize plugin then search resize image tool in google, click first website and upload your Image in PNG size and download it in jpg file. It’s really great method to resize image with loosing Pixel. I am also using this method.
Any way thanks for sharing such great post with us.
