10 WordPress plugins that benefit your blog abound on the Internet.
10 Essential WordPress Plugins is aimed at Internet Marketers.
Good work by Tim & Anthony Buchalka yet they have missed what I consider to be some essential plugins.
So without more ado I add my own top 10 to theirs, and these are in no specific order:
|Google Analytics||Find visitor numbers and links clicked by using Google Analytics straight from WordPress|
|Twitter Tools||Announce blog posts on Twitter and show Tweets on your blog|
|WordPress Auto Upgrade||Automatically upgrades you to the next version of WordPress. Also does a copy of your installation before upgrading!|
|Better Comments Manager||Enables you to reply to comments from the dashboard|
|Feedsmith||Feedsmith enables you to track subscribers, popular posts and to change your feed and advertise it|
|Share This||Use share this to enable readers to send your post to a variety of social media sites, including Digg|
|MaxblogPress||Makes it less likely that you’ll be banned from using too many pings|
|Super Cache||Speeds up delivery of your blog pages so that there’s less waiting time|
|Plugin Installer||This is my favourite plugin. It installs WordPress plugins from your blog easily and without using FTP. It also monitors for updates to your plugins.|
|Batch Categories||Allows you to assign a category to multiple posts and more…|
