Essential Plugins to have in your every new WordPress installation

Here are few essential WordPress plugins that every new website running WordPress should have it in their arsenal…


WordPress Plugin 1
Akismet comes installed with every new wordpress installation, ‘Akismet filters out your comment and track-back spam for you, so you can focus on more important things.’


WordPress Plugin 2
FD Feedburner Plugin
Free plugin to redirect all your comments & RSS feeds to feedburner, ‘Redirects the main feed and optionally the comments feed to It does this seamlessly without the need to modify templates, setup new hidden feeds, modify .htaccess files, or asking users to migrate to a new feed. All existing feeds simply become Feedburner feeds seamlessly and transparently for all users. Just tell the plugin what your Feedburner feed URL is and you’re done.’


WordPress Plugin 3
My Page Order
Great way to order pages visually inside WordPress, ‘My Page Order allows you to set the order of pages through a drag and drop interface. The default method of setting the order page by page is extremely clumsy, especially with a large number of pages. The plugin also installs a replacement widget that exposes all the options of the wp_list_pages template function.’


WordPress Plugin 4
Health Check
Really simple way to check WordPress installation health, ‘This plugin will perform a number of checks on your WordPress install to detect common configuration errors and known issues.’


WordPress Plugin 5
Block Bad Queries
Simple solution to security problems, ‘Block Bad Queries (BBQ) helps protect WordPress Against Malicious URL Requests. BBQ checks for excessively long request strings (i.e., greater than 255 characters), as well as the presence of either “eval(” or “base64” in the request URI. These sorts of nefarious requests were implicated in the September 2009 WordPress attacks.’


WordPress Plugin 6
SEO Ultimate
Really simple & free way to manage your website’s SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Settings.
