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.


Akismet -Free

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.

SI CAPTCHA Anti-SpamFree

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.

All in One Adsense and YPNFree

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.

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.

Easy Privacy Policy -Free

Automatically adds a privacy policy page that includes an Adsense compliance section.  There is a chance you won’t be able to get it using the link. Contact me on this blog and I’ll email you a file.

Google XML Sitemaps with qTranslate Support -Free

This plugin will create a Google sitemaps compliant XML-Sitemap of your WordPress blog which is supported by Ask.com, Google, MSN Search and YAHOO. qTranslate Compliant version by NeoEGM. Configuration Page

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.

WP Super Cache-  Free

HostGator now uploads a caching plugin with installation called WP Super Cache. It’s an easy set up and so far so good.

Fast Secure Contact FormFree

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.
