I know you have all seen these little lists out there on which plugins are the best. You might even have your own. I have put this one together because I have clients that ask all the time which ones I find most useful, so have put together this short little wordpress list in order to be able to point them to one page with all the answers I would have given them on the phone or in person. This is by no means my complete list, but just the top ten that I think are the most helpful. So without further procrastination on my part, lets get down to it!
- All in One SEO – The name says it all! I find this nice little plugin does just what it says it does. Great help with all your SEO needs.
- PowerPress – This plugin from blueberry, makes podcasting a breeze. Video or audio makes no difference. Want to get a Vpod going on ITunes, here ya go.
- Facebook Tabs – Holy Goose snot Batpeople! If you have a wordpress and a Facebook Business page, or any kind of page this one is a must have! With the changes on facebook to the old Fan pages to iframe format, this plugin makes the upkeep of these rascally little rabbits the next best thing to joyful!
- Simple Facebook connect – great way to get fans and the social graph integrated to you site!
- Facepress II – Want to post to your personal as well as your fan Page (business page)? This one makes it a snap for your and your authors.

- Sexybookmarks – the name is bold, and the sharing fantastic!

- BONUS – ok ok ok how could I forget The Linkedin plugin? ( I didn’t)
- BONUS – I’m not sorry, there is still one more…. This Foursquare plugin is awesome.
Although this is not the complete list, you can see it is a GOOD LIST. I have Thought this out over time and some have dropped off the list and some have gotten one of the coveted spots, but these are the ones I would recommend to anyone that is doing there own site and just needed a pointer to some great ones.
