I use WordPress for all of my blogs and mini-sites. Here are the plugins I recommend:
- Add to Any – It’s important to turn off the annoying hover feature by clicking the box “Only show the menu when the user clicks the Share/Save button” under Menu options.
- All in One SEO – be sure and fill it out for the whole site and for each page/post you create
- Akismet – prevents spam comments so use it
- Cbnet Ping Optimizer – prevents you from getting banned from blog directories by refreshing a post too often
- Cforms – best email form plugin
- Google Sitemap Generator – keeps google updated with pages as you make them-builds google a map
- Related Posts Plugin – gives options for displaying other posts at the bottom of a post, based on tags
- NEW – Enhanced Recent Posts – include or exclude categories from listings of recent posts.
- Yoast Breadcrumbs
- WP-Page Navi
- Robots Meta
- Image Widget – add images to widgets from within the widget.
