The majority of people in the blog-o-sphere run their sites on WordPress, it is a fantastic, easy to run content management system that also comes with hundreds of thousands of useful plug-ins.

Here is a list of the best five free plug-ins that will improve any site. Whether you are blogging about knitting and sewing or surfing and rowing.

All In One SEO

Like it or loath it, search engine optimization is key to any successful blog, it means you have a wider audience reach and it means the you get the maximum number of natural visitors. All in One SEO allows you to optimize your site easily and simply.
This is perfect for anyone who isn’t SEO savvy and has no real interest in SEO, as it takes out all the hard work, pain and frustration that comes with optimizing your blog or website for the search engines.

WP Super Cache

If you have a site with sluggish loading times then WP Super Cache is perfect for you. It allows you to show cached versions of pages which load extremely quickly. So instead of web pages being a few MB, they’re just a few KB.

Google XML Sitemaps

A sitemap is a vital component to any website if you want pages to be indexed quickly and stayed indexed. Instead of having to manually create a sitemap, this plugin will allow you to create one automatically and it updates automatically.

WPTouch

If you have ever looked at your website’s analytics, you will have noticed a large portion of visitors are looking at your site on mobile devices. WPTouch allows you to automatically show a mobile friendly version of your site to mobile visitors.

Sharebar

Social media plays an important role in spreading the word about your website, the Sharebar plugin allows you to put a social media bar on all your web pages, so people can easily Tweet about your page, Google +1 it or quickly like it on Facebook.

    I use most of these plugins, but instead of sharebar I use Twitter Facebook Social Share plugin. I think it works pretty good.

    I recently switched from the All in One SEO to Platinum Seo Pack and I think it offers quite a few more features, namely choosing if you want your post to be indexed, have a nofollow attribute for all links in it, as well as a noarchive feature. I’m excited to see how using these features will help me drive more “juice” to some of my more content rich posts and affect their ranking. Were these offered in the All in One SEO Pack and I just didn’t know about them?

    I think that these are the basic plugins needed for almost any site. I would actually like WP to have some of these preinstalled to help new users.

    My vote goes to All In One SEO plugin. It saves unlimited hours of time and is very user friendly. Can’t imagine WordPress site without it.

    i think seo ultimate is the best free plugin for search engine optimization., there are lots of option in that like Inbound Auto-link Anchors, search engine listing and social networks listings. it also track for 404 errors in your site., and the most important thing is that it is free of cost. I have a great experience with it and presently using that only. 🙂

    Check out simple social bar or digg digg. They are similar to sharebar but are quicker to load.
