    Ta for the mention and the link. I bet that will triple traffic to the PA site. It was great to see you at the Meetup, and I hope you come back.

    For podcasts, I'd recommend Blubrry PowerPress, which handles both audio and video and lets you create multiple podcast feeds.

    Google XML Sitemaps is a good companion to All in One SEO.

    Search Everything is one plugin I always install, to help improve the abysmal native search function.

    Cleaner Gallery is essential for gallery uploads.

    pageMash is incredible helpful if you have lots of static pages on your site, but probably won't be necessary with the new menu function coming in WP 3.0

    I'm working on some notes for the Meetup about other plugins.

    Meanwhile, it's Plugin Developer Donation Day! (http://www.vsellis.com/scott-recommends/make-a-do… I'm going to pick a developer or two and make a donation.

    Great article! A brand new plugin that may soon find its way on to this list is Cobalt WP Boost.

    Check it out here:

    It allows blog owners to raise their WordPress Memory Limits with a couple of mouse clicks, as well as showing at-a-glance memory usage information. WordPress keeps its internal memory limit at 32MB, which is fine for a small-time blog; but if you’re trying to add any robust plugins for social networking or ecommerce applications, 32M will not suffice. This problem can only be expected to worsen with the release of 3.0 which, judging from the beta release, will consume a lot more memory itself without upping the 32MB limit.

    I think my favorite plugin is: Feedjit -it provides a graphical view of who visited your blog and from whence(well,ISP point of entry,anyway)they came.

      Didn't know about that one, thanks, Richard.

    a simple WordPress plugin that pulls in interesting facts from a constantly updated facts database, and adds them to the end of every blog post you make.

    Thanks for a great post!

    I’ve been using broken link checker for a while now, it’s so useful especially when your site has a huge amount of links.

    I’d recommend taking a look at SEO Ultimate as a substitute for all in one SEO, it’s got far superior features, i think all in one SEO is getting a bit out-dated now.

      Didn’t know about SEO Ultimate, will check it out!

    With so many plugins, and so many plugin lists, it’s hard to know where to start…two here appeal to me, zemanta, and, since I just realised one of my blogs has vanished, the database backup is looking quite an essential to me, as well!

  • Mike Sandburg

    Thanks for the article on your 10 essential plug-ins. I took your advice and installed several of them. I also like the email feed subscribe widget you are using, but cannot seem to find the same plugin. I’ve found several feedburner email subscription plugins, but none that look like yours. Can you please tell me which plugin or widget you are using?
