    Great list, lots of plugins here I didn’t find in other lists. I personally really like Yoast, good recommendation.

    For lead capture in WordPress, my startup just released a plugin that will give you an interactive, fully editable lead capture dialog out of the box, with the ability to call the prospect back right away and even screen share to them, all on a freemium plan. Just search for CrankWheel on the WordPress marketplace, maybe you’d want to include that in your article?

      Thanks for the nice words. Good luck on your plugin!
