Throughout the years I have built many websites on a variety of platforms and today I still favour WordPress, why? WordPress is like the iPhone, it’s easy to use there are thousands of apps or in WordPress words “Plugins” If you can think of something you want on your website the chances are there is a plugin for it. Support is hugely available throughout forums and many other websites. Whilst you read this remember you are ready this on a WordPress website.
1: All In One Seo Pack
The creator of this plugin Michael Torbert in my mind is a WordPress genius, he has built this plugin from the ground up using some amazing SEO technics and his download statistics prove just how good a job he has done with over 14 million downloads to date it is one of WordPress’s most downloaded plugins. Recently he did a major upgrade to the plugin that included auto generation of title tags, meta description and keywords. This is a great thing for the lazy authors and content writters out there as you can simply write and post your blog or page and leave, no need for the tedious task of SEO. I give Michael 5 stars hands down! Download it here
2: Better WP Security
With every good thing comes and bad thing and the popularity of the WordPress platform being installed on 16% of websites world wide gets the unwanted attention of those nasty hackers and spammers, well stop right there.. Better WP Security is an amazing tool and makes blocking all the vulnerabilities a 5 minute task, from changing the admin default user number from 1 to a random number or changing the database default name to one i can’t even remember, it has it all this is a must have plugin! download it here
3: NextGEN Gallery
Need to display a big amount of photos or a lot photos over many pages? This is the plugin for you. NextGEN, have come up with a great tool for displaying images on your WordPress site, it’s as simple as creating a new gallery, uploading the pictures and pasting the short code onto the required page and you are away.

4: Social Sharing Toolkit
The thing i love about this plugin is how easy and flexible it is, some of my clients have social media accounts on nearly all the sites out there and some just have a simple Facebook and Twitter account. This plugin allows you to have heaps or one, with over 18 different social media sites listed you simply just copy in the URL of the site and tell the plugin which pages or posts or both you want it visible on and you are done.
