Must-have WordPress plugins

Categories: Reviews,Technology

My list of recommended must-have WordPress plugins. I have these plugins installed across all of my blogs and WordPress instances, no doubt about it.

  • Google Analyticator puts Google Analytics tracking information on your WordPress site to track clicks, search keywords, time on site, etc. You need a Google Analytics account for this.
  • Google Sitemap Generator generates an XML sitemap to help boost search engine traffic
  • WordPress Database Backup backs up your MySQL database to server and email
  • WordPress Backup backs up your theme, plugins and uploads to server and email
  • Lightbox 2 to elegantly display images
  • WP Contact Form to embed a contact form into your blog
  • Wordbook to automatically cross-post blog entries to your Facebook profile
  • …and of course Akismet, which comes with WordPress by default, to fight spam comments
