    Excellent list although I have been told that minimizing the number of plugins on any site is best practice and ideally less than 10 is best for optimum site loading speeds so I would agree with you “…if you have too many plugins installed, it can affect the speed of your site” statement. Perhaps in a future post you could suggest ways to choose which plugins to instal. Also for SPAM I use and recommend Antispam Bee.

    Thanks for sharing these tips with everyone. A great list of plug-ins for WordPress users. These plug-ins will certainly help businesses make better use of their WordPress sites.


  11. This list is just awesome. I am doing a google hangout for some friends taking about wordpress and essential plugins. I was about to start writing them down and your post appeared. :)

    Now we can all just run through your list. Thanks so much for doing this.

  15. Hi Lilach

    thanks for sharing via LinkedIn. We use a lot of these on client sites, but have definitely added a couple to our list!


  16. Awesome Lilach , thank you so much for this !
    Great list and I love top plugins but I assume that you also agree that, somehow, the less plugins the better, regarding the potential bugs, frequent upgrades, possible conflicts and code issues that they can bring… especially if we start using a large mix…

  20. I find myself looking for the 404 plugins – as it’s super annoying for analytics to show a 404 error but not tell you where it is.

    The other, I use Clicky by Joost as http://www.clicky.com is by far my favorite analytics software.

  28. Great post, great list. My only comment is that it’s not the number of WordPress plugins on a site that slows it down. It’s bad code that slows it down. So, using the P3 plugin that you mention is a great idea. But, dont worry about number, worry about plugins with bad code. Thanks!

  34. Wow what a comprehensive list. Some of these I use and some I don’t so will see if I need to use some more. Thanks for creating this list.

  35. That’s quite some list Lilach – I use a few plugins on my wordpress site that you mention like popup domination, cache, and wptouch, and a couple others.

    I think its important you mention not to go overboard adding too many plugins (like I did before I knew better) because they can slow down your site and/or conflict with other plugins added causing site errors.

    Thanks for such a comprehensive list!

    Lilach, you are an incredible catalog. I am not working on my own site which is WordPress. The ones I work on are Hubspot and I often say to myself “Out, out dammed spot.” But no luck. When I get to work on mine, I will check out some of your plugins. Thanks for the list.

  51. Nice roundup, but if these are your favorite how come there so much overlap? For example, do you use multiple SEO plugins or security plugins?
