I can’t tell you how many times I have scoured the web looking for WordPress Plugins to add to my ring of web sites. There are so many to choose from that it is can seem incredibly daunting. Well fear not fellow WordPress enthusiast, we are here to help. All of the WordPress Plugins you find in this list are in use on many of the sites that I create and have proven to be invaluable.
To get some things out of the way. This list contains mostly free plugins available to you through the WordPress plugins manager. However, there are a number of plugins here that are premium plugins that can be found and purchased through their website(s).
For those of you that may have just started a WordPress site, it is important that you consider each plugin carefully before you install it. Although the list you are about to read are all plugins that I personally use on many of my sites, I don’t use all of them together on all my sites. It is not advisable for you to go plugin mad and inundate your WordPress site with a ton of plugins for no reason.
For those of you that have been using WordPress for years, these plugins may be familiar to you. I ask that if you have any of these plugins installed, or have any experience with any of these plugins, please use the comments below to share you experience with them for the rest of us and/or new WordPress users.
