As number three goes we have the LuckyWP Table of Contents plugin for WordPress by LuckyWP.
The plugin is currently at version 2.1.4 and the last update was one year ago from the date I wrote this post.
As far as functions and features goes this is the one plugin that I have used on several previous occasions and I see the major drawback at the moment to be the long period since last update since when it comes to WordPress security one don´t simply likes to gamble with outdated plugins.
My experience with this plugin is that it is simple to use and offers the option to toggle the show and hide in different posts and pages. It is Gutenberg compatible and works with short codes.
The LuckyWP Table of Contents plugin has been installed over 70000 times and har a 5 star rating based on 634 ratings and that makes it the highest rated plugin of the five.
Moving on to number four then …
At position four we find the SimpleTOC Table of Contents plugin for WordPress by Marc Tönsing and this is the option I went with to use for my own TOC index for this website.
The SimpleTOC plugin is currently at version 4.8 and was last updated two months prior to this article about the best TOC plugins for WordPress.
The SimpleTOC plugin only has 2000 active installations for the moment being but I see great potential in it and it does have a five star rating already based on 24 ratings.
And it´s time for number five!
Rich Table of Contents
Last by not least is the plugin Rich Table of Contents for WordPress by Croover.inc. This is a Japanese made plugin who saw it´s last update two weeks before this post was published.
Rich Table of Contents gives you the option to freely decide the title of the table of contents and it´s up to you to show the TOC on posts and pages.
With it´s 20000 active installations and a four star rating based on 13 ratings it is still a strong contender for the top five table of contents plugins for WordPress to make your Google Adsense website more SEO friendly.
Given the choice of the five different plugins for WordPress and left to have to chose one I feel that it is a hard choice to chose between the LuckyWP TOC plugin and the SimpleTOC plugin.
I have experience from them booth and I guess that only the near future will tell if the one is better then the other.
For this website I have decided to go with the SimpleTOC WordPress plugin and that will be my choice as the number one table of contents plugin for WordPress SEO and Google Adsense optimization.
