How Many Plugins is Too Many?

  1. Quality over quantity 00:52
    • The more code on your side, the slower it’s going to run. There are more server resources that have to execute that code.
    • Look at the reviews for the plugin to see the quality.
  2. Ask “What is the code doing?” 03:20
    • If the code is performing a simple task, the plugin will take up fewer resources on the site.
  3. Ask “Is the plugin large?” 04:27
    • Is it lots of different files or different lines of code? Then it’s going to take more resources and more space.
  4. Bonus tip 06:53
    • If you’re not sure about the quality of your plugins, go ahead and build your site. When you’re done, hire a professional to come in and perform a plugin audit.
