WordPress Plugins

Every time we use WordPress for a client’s website or blog, there are several plugins we always install. Below is the list:

All in One SEO Pack – A great Search Engine Optimization plugin. It has some great features. You can tweak each page/post title, meta description and keywords or you can have the plugin auto generate each of these for you.

WP Security Scan – This plugin will scan your WordPress site for security vulnerabilities and suggest what to do if found. It will check your file permissions, database settings, hide your WordPress version, has a password generator and more.

WP-DBManager – Plugin allows you to backup your WordPress database, schedule database backups, optimize your database, schedule database optimization, repair your database, restore your database, drop and empty tables and run queries.

Google XML Sitemaps – Another great plugin for SEO. It will create a Google sitemaps compliant XML-Sitemap of your WordPress blog. Everytime you edit or create a post, your sitemap is updated and all major search engines that support the sitemap protocol, like ASK.com, Google, Bing and YAHOO, are notified about the update.

Exclude Pages from Navigation – Sometimes you don’t want specific pages displaying in the main navigation. Each page has a checkbox to include the page. If you uncheck the box, the page will not display in the navigation.

Sociable – Automatically ads links to social and bookmarking websites on pages and posts. You can disable it for pages if you like. The plugin comes with 99 social and bookmarking sites including Facebook, Twitter and Digg.

Yet Another Related Posts Plugin – Displays related posts at the bottom of your post using an advanced algorithm.

These are the essentials we install for every WordPress plugin. Of course we install others if needed for added functionality or requested by the client.
