It is basically one plug-in with multiple functionalities. What can this plug-in do you ask?

1. Website functionality enhanced

WordPress has plenty of built-in features. A premium WordPress theme typically boosts that functionality, although you can rely on a range of plug-ins to provide many tweaks that you might need for your websites.

This WordPress plug-in comes packed with many features, so you don’t have to install a new plugin for every new feature you desire for your website.

It provides an extra front end functionality in the form of related content, contact forms, and a plethora of extra sidebar widgets.

2. Traffic and statistics

The Jetpack plugin helps you boost your traffic through its Publicize feature. Once configured, the feature pushes all new blog posts to social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.

Jetpack’s Traffic Stats feature also helps you keep track of your traffic as it trickles in.

3. Jetpack security

WordPress is known to be attacked 25% more often than any other content management system and the Jetpack protect feature is one such which identifies and bars malicious IP addresses and blocks any failed login attempts to keep the hackers away.

4. Jetpack for SEO

Website speed is a major factor when it comes to search engine optimization and the Photon feature from Jetpack helps in image loading times and also speeds up the entire website.

By loading images promptly, this plugin improves the user experience. This is important because internet users on an average spend around 4 Seconds for a website to load before they give up.

Jetpack also has an automatic sitemap creation that makes it easier for search engines to crawl your website.

    • In a case like this you can just try removing the plugin completely and re installing it. Usually this could solve the issue, if it still does not, you should contact support. This could be a generic issue.

  1. No doubt jetpack is one of the free best used plugins for self hosted blogs/websites. From visitor engagement to site stats, from security features to display options, Jetpack has it all. But do you know the plugin is jam-packed with tons of features, so the interface looks bloated and there’s unresolved debate about the performance of Jetpack as it can cause your site to slow down. Jetpack requires you to connect your site to your WordPress.com account which is risky as all your personal information is grabbed. If you’re concerned about your privacy and don’t want to share your site information with any third parties, then Jetpack may not be the right solution for you. I some how never got impressed by Jetpack and I don’t suggest.

    • Nowadays even when we download an app we need to allow permissions to our contacts and much more information and this plug-in comes from WordPress directly, so it might be alright to say it’s safe. Speaking from experience with Jetpack, I think it’s safe to say that it’s a safe and secure plugin.

  2. I haven’t shifted to a self-hosted site yet. So I don’t have that much hands-on experience with Jetpack. I’m sure this will come in handy when I move into self-hosted domain.
