Essential WordPress plug-ins!

Not very often, but sometime, you get to use a tool so good. You just want more … I started to use WordPress and it just gets better. I have spent sometime playing around with plug-ins and have found the list below to be the essential list of plugins that you should definitely consider using.

They are all tested with the latest version and they all play  along nicely with each other.

Akismet  One of the default plugins. Once your site gets slightly popular you’ll need this plugin. I am a paying customer and it is worth every penny. It stops 99,9% of all spams. Even the more sofisticated versions. A must have!

 BackWPup  A great and versatile WordPress Backup application. It backs up everything, DB, files, settings etc.By Daniel Hüsken | Visit plugin site
 GTranslate   like to provide an easy way for people to translate and read your site. Surely most of the people know about Google translate. This widget makes it so much easier. I get more traffic from non-English speaking countries after installing this plug-in.

 Jetpack by WordPress  Came with one of the upgrades! Well the only part that I find useful is the site statistics. Then again I use Google Analytics which is much better … Give it a try.

 WPTouch Pro  I love this plug-in as it provides a great iPad/iPhone/Android or any mobile device interface. Once of the best if not the only great working plug-in. I used to use onSwipe … they have changed direction to being more of a publishing “tool” …

 SexyBookmarks  Shareaholic adds a (X)HTML compliant list of social bookmarking icons to each of your posts. Pretty good. Works really well with very little over-head.

 W3 Total Cache  For a while I had a very slow site. Very little traffic, still non-responsive or very slow. I found this plug-in that came with great recommendations. It is the best performance booster for your site. You can configure it like a crazy person or let it do its job. Regardless it works great.

 WP to Twitter  Super easy plug-in just tweets all your update and posts. Not very fancy, than again, I just need a quick tweet and nothing else.
