My Favorite WordPress Plugins-Must Have If You Want To Make Money Online!
I’ve tried hundreds of plugins and believe these are the best ones for anyone to use.
To make it easier when installing, put them all in one folder on your computer so they’re easier to find when you’re installing them on your blog.
I use both free and premium plugs and note that for each one.
Affiliate Product Dominator -Premium
Plugin to create unique affiliate product posts fast on your blogs- This is a neat little plug-in. Pick any Amazon product to write about and enter the main keyword for it. APD will scrape infor including images, descriptions, features and reviews and put that info all on one page. Then you copy and paste the info you want into an editor that’s on the page. Do a little re-writing and you have an original post. You can review books, music, microwaves, anything at all as long as it’s sold on Amazon. And you don’t have to use the post to sell the product through Amazon. You can use that info and link to anything thing you want. I use this daily.
Version 1.0 | By Edwin Boiten
Plugin to create automatically content on your blogs-AP will make a post using any keyword you want and will scrape Amazon to build the post. It will also add eBay products to your post. It’s set up to use LinkShare, Commission Junction, ClickBank and Groupon, you pick which ones to use. I don’t suggest having a product blog with nothing but automatic posts. Instead, use the APD then sprinkle in some AutoPress stuff too.

Rank Checker -Premium
I just bought it and I’m checking it out now. I’ll update this post when I see how it works. Right now I’m pretty impressed as it gives you rankings for any keyword anyone uses to find you site. I think it’s a winner and it’s pretty cheap too.
Used by millions, Akismet is quite possibly the best way in the world to protect your blog from comment and trackback spam. It keeps your site protected from spam even while you sleep. To get started: 1) Click the “Activate” link to the left of this description, 2) Sign up for an Akismet API key, and 3) Go to your Akismet configuration page, and save your API key.
Version 2.5.3 | By Automattic
SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam -Free
Adds CAPTCHA anti-spam methods to WordPress forms for comments, registration, lost password, login, or all. This prevents spam from automated bots. WP, WPMU, and BuddyPress compatible. Along with Akismet, solves your spam problem.
Version 2.7 | By Mike Challis
All in One Adsense and YPN -Free
Inserts Adsense or YPN code in to your blog posts. Ad position can be random or pre-defined. I think it’s pretty easy to use. I just hope the developer is on the level.
Version 2.01 | By linewbie
All in One SEO Pack -Free
Out-of-the-box SEO for your WordPress blog. I think this plugin does everything that’s needed though some people disagree and think other on page SEO plugins are better. I’ve looked at them and they are much more complicated. I do fine with this one so I’m sticking with it.

Official StatCounter Plugin -Free
Adds the StatCounter tracking code to your blog. After uploading this plugin click ‘Activate’ (to the right) and then afterward you must visit the options page and enter your StatCounter Project Info to enable logging.
I don’t use Google analytics. The best way for me to explain my feelings is this; Google is the biggest big brother ever and they know enough about my business without me giving them the keys to the front door too. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Google, I just don’t trust them.
StatCounter gives me all the info I need.
Version 1.5 | By Aodhan Cullen
Select SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 -Free
Multiply blog traffic by strengthening on page SEO, increasing the number of indexed pages, auto convert search terms into post tags, and more.
Version 1.52 | By Purwedi Kurniawan
Hyper Cache Extended- Free
You’ll have to look this one up. It’s free and the easiest cache plug in to use. I’ve ruined sites with W3 Total Cache and refuse to use it any more. Hyper cache is recommended by HostGator now.
Fast Secure Contact Form- Free
I don’t have the link for this one but it’ll be easy to find. Makes great contact forms. I use it on a lead generating site for the water softener niche. Works great for that. I made up about 8 fields and ask the visitor questions then sell the lead to service companies in the visitor’s area.
