Is Jetpack Plugin Worth the Price and Ease, It Provides?
Do you have any doubts about whether or not it is worthwhile to activate Jetpack?
The short answer is that it is dependent on the situation.
It’s ironic that one of the advantages of WordPress is precisely what it lacks: out-of-the-box functionality. The true strength of WordPress lies in its ability to be customized through the use of themes and plugins, which is one of the reasons why self-hosted WordPress.org is preferable to WordPress.com for serious bloggers.
For its part, WordPress.com offers a wealth of useful features that are absent from WordPress.org’s version of the platform.
There are some potential pitfalls to watch out for with its large variety of modules – but they are outweighed by the benefits.
What Exactly Is Jetpack?
Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com, has created a WordPress plugin called Jetpack. Many WordPress hosting providers will automatically include Jetpack as part of the WordPress installation.
Activating it requires a little more effort than most other plugins, as it does not simply require a single click. This is due to the fact that Jetpack works by bridging the gap between WordPress.com and WordPress.org – you must first sign up for a WordPress.com account and then activate Jetpack using the login information from your WordPress.com account.
Briefly stated, signing up for WordPress.com grants you access to all of its features, which you can then use on your self-hosted WordPress.org installation by installing the Jetpack WordPress plugin.
What features does Jetpack include, and how does it work?
Jetpack is made up of a few dozen separate “modules,” each of which can be activated or deactivated at your discretion.
When you activate a module, you will be able to make use of that feature on your website. The code contained within it will no longer load or run on your website when you deactivate it.
Jetpack is constantly adding new modules, and some of the most popular modules are being integrated into core WordPress functions, so the list is constantly evolving.
The functions of modules are extremely diverse. The functions provided by some of them are quite important (such as site statistics or backups), while others are relatively insignificant (such as post “likes” or Gravatar hovercards).
The following modules are available:
- Backups and security scanning are both recommended (premium feature)
- Monitoring of downtime
- Protection against brute force attacks
- Login to WordPress.com

WordPress Jetpack advantages and disadvantages
Phew! That is a significant number of features and functions for a single plugin.
If you took a look at that list, there were probably a few modules that you recognized as being useful for your own blog.
Jetpack does have a lot of useful features, and it is also free (with the exception of the VaultPress and VideoPress modules) and open source, which is a significant advantage.
Another great thing about Jetpack is that it is frequently updated and created by the same people who are responsible for WordPress.com, which means that it is always guaranteed to be compatible with the core.
You might be wondering why no one would use Jetpack in this situation.
Despite all of the wonderful features and advantages, there are a few potential drawbacks to consider.
Jetpack includes more than 30 modules, and it’s unlikely that you’ll use them all at the same time. So why would you use a plugin that includes so much more functionality than you require?
As one of the reviewers put it, “Who needs every possible function in a single plugin?” says another.
Some critics claim that Jetpack is a bloated plugin that contains a lot of code that no one actually needs.
Defenders of Jetpack, on the other hand, point out that the plugin is designed so that you can only activate the modules you need, and that deactivated modules are not loaded onto your site, so they have no impact on site performance.
Nonetheless, if you only require one or two of the features, you might want to look into alternative plugins that are specialized in those particular functions.
Some modules may cause your site to load more slowly.
While many users have reported no problems with Jetpack, others have complained that it has significantly slowed their site down, with some reporting that it has added as much as 8 to 10 seconds to page load times.
Some modules may have a greater impact on the overall result than others. To use the CSS Editor, for example, you must first save your CSS code to your database as a custom post type. It then has to query the database every time a page is loaded in order to retrieve your CSS, which can increase your page loading times.
Having said that, Jetpack is not the only cause of a website that takes a long time to load.
Jetpack photon may have a negative impact on your SEO.
Some users have also reported that, despite the fact that the Photon module speeds up image loading by serving them from a content delivery network (CDN), using it can have a negative impact on your search engine rankings.
Not everyone is affected by this problem, and defenders point out that other CDNs do not cause SEO difficulties. Some users, however, claim that Photon has caused their search engine traffic to drop by as much as 50% as a result of the service.
Another point of contention is the fact that Photon uploads your images to WordPress.com, where they are retained indefinitely even after the module has been deactivated by some users. This is not a problem with SEO, but rather with image ownership and control.
The use of a single login could pose a security risk.
Although the ability to manage all of your WordPress installations from a centralized dashboard is extremely convenient for WordPress site owners, it is equally advantageous to cybercriminals.
An attacker who gains access to one of your WordPress sites has the potential to gain access to all of your sites in the future.
Because of security concerns, it may be preferable to forego the convenience and keep your WordPress sites separate from one another.
But, more importantly, look into other methods of tightening the security of your website, as well as security plugins that can make the entire process easier.
While many of Jetpack’s features are offered free of charge, there are certain premium bundles. These include helpful modules such as backup and restore, elastic search, advanced malware protection and more that are only available under the paid plan.
Prices start at $19.95/mo (when you choose an annual plan) for Security Daily, and come with backups (with a 30-day backup archive), scans, spam protection, video hosting, SEO tools and Google analytics integration and of course priority support.
1. Free Content Delivery Network (CDN) for WordPress
The very first feature that comes to mind is the free content delivery network provided by Jetpack. Unlike other CDN providers, Jetpack CDN does not require any signup, gives you unlimited CDN bandwidth, and is completely free – for life!
Who should use Jetpack CDN?
In short, everybody. Whether you are a power user, or a novice user, or someone who is just starting out; using a CDN dramatically speeds up your site’s loading time. This gives you a three-fold advantage:
- Google rewards faster sites with better SEO scores. You rank faster for your target keywords.
- You save your server’s bandwidth resources; since the images are served from Jetpack’s content delivery network.
- A faster website results in a pleasant visitor experience. This, in turn, increases the chances of a conversion – whether it is an email signup, ebook download, or something as simple as a social share!
How do I enable Jetpack CDN?
All you need to do is enable the Jetpack CDN module from the Performance & Speed settings, found under WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Performance tab.
2. Lazy Loading of Images in WordPress
Lazy Loading is a feature that has found a mention in every credible WordPress performance optimization post. You see, the idea behind lazy loading is simple. Load images only when the visitor sees it instead of all at once when your page loads. This has a two-fold benefit.
- One, the site loads faster since the page size of the site is lowered. This, in turn, gives us better SEO, and lower bandwidth consumption from the server site.
- The second advantage directly benefits the end user by saving his or her bandwidth.
How can lazy loading save mobile bandwidth?
Let’s say Samantha is browsing an article on the “best fashion WordPress themes” on her phone. When Samantha opens the website, the page starts loading all 25 images at once. However, with lazy loading enabled, only the images visible in the viewport is loaded. The other images are loaded only when Samantha scrolls down to view them. Thus Samantha ends up saving her precious mobile bandwidth while enjoying a super-snappy website.
Who should use lazy load?
How do I enable Jetpack lazy load?
This module is located just below the Jetpack CDN module in the same Performance & Speed settings section. Simply toggle to enable it!
3. Subscribe to New Posts via Email in WordPress
This is a personal favourite. Jetpack has a series of beautiful features when it comes to visitor engagement. We’ll cover them one by one starting with this one. Jetpack’s email subscription feature enables visitors to subscribe to your blog posts via email. It’s displayed as a Notify me of new posts via email checkbox. People who click on it are asked to share their email address in order to subscribe or follow your blog’s posts. Additionally, you can use the Subscribe to Comments feature to give your readers the option to subscribe to your blog’s comments via email. This is displayed as a secondary checkbox to Notify me of new comments via email. Whenever a new post is published, or a new comment is posted, your followers get an email with a link to your post/comment.
What are the benefits of Jetpack subscriptions?
Well, for starters, you don’t need to use an email service provider (ESP) like MailChimp. Even when your email list grows, you don’t have to pay for emails. Remember that ESPs with a forever free plan usually put a limitation on the number of subscribers, or the number of emails sent per month. However, on the flip side, you won’t be able to send individual emails (i.e. without publishing a post) to your subscribers, using this Jetpack module. It’s not designed to manage newsletters. So that’s when you’d have to signup for an ESP.
Who should use subscriptions?
Depends, really. People who simply want to focus on their writing and not on growing their email list can opt for this module. However, if you are serious about your email list from day one (it’s great if you are!), then you start using a free ESP like MailChimp.
How do I enable Jetpack blog subscriptions?
Head over to the Subscriptions module under the WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Discussion tab. And as a bonus Jetpack also offers a complimentary Subscription Form Widget (which you can activate by enabling Jetpack’s extra widgets).
4. WordPress Site Uptime & Downtime Monitoring
The downtime monitoring feature from Jetpack periodically monitors your site and notifies you via email whenever there is a downtime. Not just that, it keeps on monitoring and sends you emails reminding you that your site is still down. Finally, once your site is back online – Jetpack sends yet another a confirmation email – informing you that your site is online again! I absolutely love this feature – especially since it helped me win an argument and get a full refund from my WordPress hosting provider. All I had to do was share the screenshot of my inbox, and bam, they had to process my refund!
Who should use monitoring?
Everyone! Unless, of course, you are using a premium website uptime monitoring tool and don’t want to install an additional plugin.
How do I enable Jetpack downtime monitoring?
Simply toggle the Downtime monitoring option under WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Security tab.
The Related Posts feature automatically suggests related content after every post in your WordPress site. It’s a great way to keep your visitors engaged, improve time-on-site and decrease bounce rate (to an extent).
But wait, there’s a problem:
However, calculating these related posts is a resource-intensive task. The problem multiplies when there are multiple categories and tags, and multiple posts under each of them. Calculating related posts becomes increasingly CPU intensive. Couple all of this into a shared hosting environment and you’ve got yourself a “resource violation” email, or worse – getting your account suspended.
So what’s the fix? Jetpack of course!
Jetpack offloads all of this complex, CPU-intensive computation to the cloud, and returns the finished results – i.e. the related posts – to our WordPress site. All of this for free!. You can further customize the appearance of the related posts (with or without image, excerpt, etc.) using the WordPress Customizer.
Blogs with neatly organized taxonomy, along with sufficient posts and pages under each tag and category. You should not use Related Posts when you only have a handful of posts in your site. In such a case, I would recommend manually linking to your content.
Simple! Just toggle the Related Posts option under WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Traffic from the Related Posts tab.
6. Infinite Scroll in WordPress
Infinite Scroll is a feature that automatically loads new posts without refreshing the page, as the visitor scrolls down to the bottom of the current post. Similar to Related Posts, this feature is designed to increase visitor engagement and time on site. Furthermore, Jetpack gives you the ability to configure how the next posts are loaded. For instance, you can configure them to load automatically – according to the theme/user behavior. You can also present the visitors with a “read/load more” button, which upon clicking loads the next set of posts.
Who should use infinite scroll?
Anyone with a couple of posts published in their WordPress site can use this feature. This is highly recommended for news and media blogs.
How do I enable Jetpack infinite scroll?
There is no need for your to change a specific setting, however for Jetpack Infinite Scroll to work it must be enabled by your theme. Many themes may have infinite scroll support already coded in – which is great! But for those that don’t you’ll need to add quite a bit of custom code to your child theme to enable it yourself. And depending on your theme, there may be multiple files you need to edit. The process is a bit too detailed for us to get into here, however Jetpack has a full guide I’d suggest reading if you’d like to learn more
7. Build a Contact Form in WordPress
This Jetpack module enables you to build WordPress contact forms with custom fields directly from the default editor. With a single click, you’re able to insert and customize contact forms directly from the WordPress editor.
Who should use a contact form?
Most website should have an easy to use contact form, especially if you deal with clients. So anyone not already using a contact form plugin on their WordPress site.
How can I enable Jetpack contact forms?
Enabling this features is a bit different as you’ll need to click on the “Modules” link at the bottom of any Jetpack settings page. This will take you to a custom admin panel where you can activate various Jetpack features – including the Contact form. Once active you’ll have the new option readily available in the Classic editor – just click the button to “Add Contact Form”.
Jetpack Contact Form inserted directly from the WordPress editor
And good news for Gutenberg users – there’s also a custom block you can use to insert forms that way.
8. Publish Posts via Email in WordPress
Imagine you’re in a remote location and you have to publish an article in your WordPress site. Media-rich sites like the WordPress editor won’t load due to the slow Internet connectivity. There aren’t any WiFi cafes nearby. The only thing that does seem to work is email. You barely have enough Internet speed to send out an email. This is where Jetpack’s posts via email feature comes in handy. It gives you a dedicated email address for you to publish in your WordPress blog. You can find this under the WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Writing tab. Once activated, you can email your post to this address, and it would be published in your blog. How would it work? Simple. The subject line of your email would be the post title, and the email body would be the blog post content. You can also send additional information such as categories, tags and more using these predefined shortcodes.
Who should use Jetpack post via email?
Publishing posts in WordPress via email using Jetpack!
Anyone who needs quick coverage without investing too much time in formatting or working our of areas with limited Internet connectivity.
- Travel bloggers looking to share their experiences from remote locations with limited Internet connectivity.
- Reports looking to share quick coverage without going opening the WordPress app every time.
Sometimes, it’s just easier to publish a post via email.
The Publicize module from Jetpack enables you to automatically post your freshly published content to your social media sites. It saves you the hassle of having to manually post in each social media network.
Who should use Publicize?
Well, anyone who promotes their content on social media is welcome to try this module. However, it is important to select the right social media network depending on your site’s niche, and then create content specific to each network.
You would need to establish a one-time connection with your social media networks from the Publicize settings located under WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Sharing tab.
10. Secure Authentication and WordPress.com Login
Jetpack’s secure authentication module enables you (or your users) to login to your WordPress site using WordPress.com account. To activate this feature, go to WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Security and toggle it on under the last section for WordPress.com login. You can also configure the module to only allow users to log in if their WordPress.com account email address match with the email ID used to create the user account in your WordPress.site. Additionally, you can require your site’s users to log in using two-factor authentication with WordPress.com.
Who should use login authentication?
Login using WordPress.com
If you are the sole person running your WordPress blog, then you can skip activating this module. However, if you have multiple contributors to your WordPress site, this could be a useful feature to have!
11. Media Embeds in WordPress
This is one of those features that are enabled by default in Jetpack. It essentially helps you paste media-rich content such as YouTube videos and SoundCloud audio files – in their native form – without writing a single line of code/shortcode. All you have to do is copy-paste the link in your post in the WordPress editor, and Jetpack will take care of the rest. Jetpack has evolved to support multiple websites with media-rich content including Instagram, Slideshare, Twitter, Google Docs, TED, DailyMotion, CodePen, Medium, Pinterest and more. For a detailed, up-to-date list, check out their official documentation on content embeds.
Who should use media-rich content?
12. Site Verification and Sitemaps in WordPress
I’ll be straight up with you – Jetpack isn’t the best SEO plugin out there. For starters, the SEO module itself (which includes meta tags, SEO settings, Google analytics integration, etc) is a paid feature in Jetpack. Yoast SEO is a far better, free plugin with a plethora of features and tutorials, trusted by over five million WordPress websites. That being said, for users who aren’t ready to spend time with a dedicated SEO plugin can use Jetpack’s site verification modules to verify their site with multiple search engines including Google, Bing, Pinterest, and Yandex. Simply visit WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Traffic. Additionally Jetpack also creates a sitemap which makes it easier for search engines to crawl your site.
Who should use Jetpack sitemaps?
People who aren’t looking to invest time in a dedicated WordPress SEO plugin should use Jetpack’s sitemap. However, we highly recommend using a separate plugin. With just a few hours each week you can get the basics of Yoast SEO nailed down. This way, you’ll have implemented on-page SEO correctly right from day one. That’s a big boost for your long-term search rankings!
13. Widgets, Widgets and More WordPress Widgets
Widgets are one of the most popular features offered by the Jetpack plugin. It provides a plethora of uniquely useful widgets that can be used in multiple ways. They range from social media feeds, GDPR cookie notifications and more. First, make sure you enable the Jetpack extra widgets from the the WordPress Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings > Writing tab under the Widgets section. Then head over to Appearance > Widgets to access these additional widgets (or or Appearance > Customize> Widgets to access via the live customizer). Another exciting widget feature offered by Jetpack is conditional widgets. With this option enabled, the plugin essentially allows you to configure the visibility of the widgets based on the page, post, tag or category. You can define a condition, and only if the condition holds true, the widget is displayed. For instance, you can configure your social links to only be visible on your front page (as shown above), or for a newsletter subscription widget to be visible only in posts under the Finance category. This way you can build super-targeted mailing lists.
Who should use Jetpack widgets?
This mostly depends on the user. If your WordPress theme comes with custom widgets – such as social shares or newsletter subscriptions – you should use those instead of Jetpack. They have already been styled and coded to work well with your theme. However, you can always use Jetpack’s conditional widgets to create engaging content in your website site.
14. Multiple Sites from a Single Dashboard at WordPress.com
Remember how we spoke of using WordPress.com to reap the full benefits of Jetpack? Well, you’re going to love this feature. Once you connect your sites with Jetpack, you can manage all of them from your WordPress.com dashboard. This includes things like viewing site stats, publishing posts, responding to comments, updating plugins, and much more.
Will JetPack cause your website to load more slowly?
WordPress is a powerful and flexible content management system that can be used to manage your website’s content. What makes it so adaptable is that it does not come pre-loaded with a slew of features that you may or may not ever employ. It is for this reason that we have plugins. In order for us to be able to add the features we desire.
In addition, the Jetpack plugin is a unique plugin in that it functions more like a container of plugins than it does as a standalone plugin. You install it in the same way you would a plugin, but that’s about where the similarities end. As soon as you activate it, you’ll notice that you have access to an enormous number of additional features that you can use to enhance your website.
However, it is the idea of a slew of other features that has people on edge. The reason for this is that they have heard that the more plugins you have on your site, the slower it becomes.
It’s important to remember that it’s not the quantity of plugins on your site that matters, but the quality of those plugins.
First and foremost, let’s dispel the myth that Jetpack causes websites to “slow down”: Jetpack does not cause websites to “slow down.” The code itself is quite good. That being said, if a feature isn’t activated (which you can control), then that code won’t be running in the background of your site, which is a welcome relief. As a result, you have complete control over the “weight” of the Jetpack plugin.
You have complete control over how much of the plugin’s functionality you want to use on your site.
For the record, the people who coded that plugin spent significantly more time updating and improving that plugin (as well as its performance) than the people who coded many other plugins available. Consequently, I do not believe you should be concerned about the speed of your website from an overall performance standpoint.
Now, allow me to qualify that statement for a moment.
If you have a one-of-a-kind situation in which the feature you want to use from Jetpack will logically cause your site to load slowly, it is not included in Jetpack. The same feature coded by another plugin will most likely have the same performance impact as the feature coded by this plugin.
Is it difficult to install and experiment with Jetpack?
Installing and experimenting with Jetpack is a piece of cake. You simply navigate to your WordPress installation, which is as follows:
- Log in to the administration area (/login).
- Select Plugins from the drop-down menu.
- Then select Add New from the drop-down menu.
- Look for Jetpack in the Featured section and click on the Install Now button.
- After that, you should activate the plugin.
- This will allow you to establish a connection with WordPress.com.
- From there, you’ll be able to decide which features you’d like to have active…
The first five steps of this process will take you less than a minute each. If you have to create an account for step six, that could take a minute or two, and then the amount of time you spend will depend on which and how many features you activate in the plugin during the process.
Alternatives to the Jetpack
One of the most appealing aspects of WordPress is the ability to personalize it to your preferences. There is no reason why you should be limited to Jetpack when there are so many other options available.
Slimpack was a near-perfect alternative to Jetpack when it was first released, back in the day. It, like Jetpack, provides modules that users can enable or disable at their discretion. Some modules that require a connection to WordPress.com were left out of Slimpack in order to keep the package as small and lightweight as possible. The plugin appears to have been abandoned as of today. By visiting the Wayback Machine, you can see it in all of its former glory.
Some examples of Jetpack substitutes include the following:
Pingdom is a fantastic alternative to traditional website monitoring services. However, although it is not a plugin, it performs the same function as Jetpack’s site uptime monitor module. You are only permitted to monitor one site with the free account.
For WordPress, there is Contact Form 7, which is a very popular contact form that is an excellent alternative to the Jetpack contact form module.
Contextual Related Posts – a powerful alternative to Jetpack’s related posts module that includes a slew of useful extras.
There are numerous alternatives to Jetpack when it comes to backups. A free method of creating backups without the use of a plugin has even been discovered! There are a variety of free plugins and methods for creating backups of your WordPress sites that do not require you to subscribe to one of Jetpack’s premium subscription plans. If you’re interested in learning more about WordPress backup methods, check out our post on the subject. A serious and important topic, one that every website owner should be familiar with and comprehend.
In addition to Jetpack’s Image CDN, Cloudflare is a very popular third-party option. The advantage of this approach is that it is not limited to images. If you don’t like Cloudflare, there are many other free CDN alternatives to consider – see our article here for more information.
iThemes Security – is a fantastic alternative to the security module provided by Jetpack. It’s even better than the security module included with Jetpack. It’s one of the most important plugins for your WordPress website, and it’s free.
Aside from these specific examples, there are tens of thousands of other Jetpack alternatives. From free plugins to premium plugins, you will almost certainly be able to find one that perfectly meets your requirements.
Frequently Asked Questions are listed below.
