When setting up a WordPress site, these are the first plugins that I install on every project.
- Google Analyticator
- Google XML sitemaps – for SEO
- Social (by MailChimp) – to cross post into Twitter & Facebook
- Google Adsense PLugin (by BestWebSoft)
Lately as my WordPress needs have grown I am finding these plugins to be more and more useful
- Posts 2 Posts – many-to-many relationship for WP.
- RSS Multi importer
- Comprehensive Google Map plugin
