Top 5 Plug-ins for WordPress

  1. Akismet – Protects against spam.  This plug-in traps suspected spam comments and trackbacks.  You can also setup the auto-delete feature to delete spam comments for post older than 30 days, which is where most of your spam request will end up anyhow.
  2. All-In-One SEO Pack – Out of the box, wordpress isn’t as search engine friendly as it could be.  If you want to do all you can to have your post get found, you’ll want this plugin.
  3. What Would Seth Godin Do – Puts a reminder on your post to help people remember to subscribe.  By default, it shows the reminder the first three times they come to your blog and won’t show the message again.  But, you can configure this information.
  4. Social Bookmarks -  Link love makes the Internet go around and social links make it go around best.  Place social bookmarking reminders on each of your post with this plugin.
  5. WordPress Database Backup – If you loose your database, you loose your blog.  Use this to backup your database.  Yes, even if your web hosting company says they are making a backup of the database.  You want control of your data.
