Essential wp plugin
Ad Injection from reviewmylife injects any kind of advert or other content (e.g. Google AdSense, Amazon Associates, ClickBank, TradeDoubler, etc) into the existing content of your WordPress posts and pages. You can control the number of adverts based on the post length, and it can restrict who sees adverts by post age, visitor referrer and IP address. Adverts can be configured in the post (random, top, and bottom positions) or in any widget/sidebar area. There's support for A:B split testing / ad rotation. And the dynamic restrictions (by IP and referrer) work with WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache and WP Cache.

The ads can be injected into existing posts without requiring any modification of the post. The injection can be done randomly between paragraphs, and there is an option to always inject the first advert at a specified paragraph (e.g. the first or second). Randomly positioning the adverts helps to reduce 'ad blindness'. Additional adverts can be defined for the top and bottom of the content, or the footer of the page. Widget adverts can be defined as well.
Widgets can be added to your sidebars, or other widget areas on any pages. The same ad display restrictions that you setup for your other ads will also apply to the widgets.
You can define multiple adverts for the same ad space which are rotated according to the ratios you define. Works with random, top, bottom and sidget/sidebar ads.
The number of adverts can be set based on the length of the post. It is a good idea for longer posts to have more adverts than shorter posts for example. Adverts can also be turned off for very short posts.
You can specify that ads should only be shown to search engine visitors, or to visitors from defined referring websites - e.g. Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter, etc. This will give your regular visitors (who are unlikely to click your ads) a better experience of your site. You can define which search engines or referring sites see your adverts. A visitor who enters the site by one of these referrers will see ads for the next hour.
Block ads to people coming from certain referring URLs. e.g. you may wish to treat people who arrive at your site after searching for your name as direct visitors and disable the ads for them.
Adverts can be restricted to posts that are more than a defined numbers of days old. This prevents your regular visitors from having to see your ads.
You can configure the adverts to only appear on specific categories, tags, authors, post IDs, or post types (or exclude them using these conditions).
Ads can be included anywhere in your theme template with some simple tags. You can load the top/random/bottom/footer ads, or you can load an ad from a text file on disk. Template ads inherit the same dynamic and global restrictions as for ads configured via the UI.
IP addresses of people who shouldn't see your ads can be defined. These could be the IP addresses of your friends, family, or even yourself.
If you need to override the top, random, or bottom ad positions on a specific post you can use these in-content tags to manually set the ad positions: <!--topad--> <!--randomad--> <!--bottomad--> <!--adstart--> <!--adend--> <!--noads-->
This is content that is displayed when ads are blocked for the user. You could use this alternate content to show other content, some kind of layout filler, or even a different type of ad. I've added support for rotation of alternate content as well.
The advert code can be copied and pasted directly from your ad provider (Google AdSense, adBrite, ClickBank, etc) which will help you to comply with any terms of service (TOS) that state their ad code may not be modified.
Although this plugin is usually used for injecting adverts it can in fact be used to inject anything. Here are some alternative uses for Ad Injection:
Easy positioning options are provided for left, right, center, float left, and float right (or a random variant of these). Extra spacing can be set above and below the ad using the CSS margin and padding boxes. Or if that isn't flexible enough, you can write your own positioning code using HTML and CSS. And you can select which paragraph random ads should start from.
The dynamic features that require code to be executed for each page view (i.e. ad rotation, search engine visitors only, and ad blocking based on IP address) work with WP Super Cache, W3 Total Cache and WP Cache.
This plugin will automatically use the dynamic mfunc tag to ensure that the dynamic ad features still work when caching is on.
If you use WP Super Cache in mod_rewrite mode displaying the adverts (even with the dynamic restrictions) whilst caching requires no MySQL database access. For W3 Total Cache and WP Cache Ad Injection will not require any extra MySQL database access for cached pages other than what these plugin already use.
As the plugin will inject whatever content you like into the page you can write your own ad rotation or a/b split testing code for the ads you inject. PHP code can be automatically executed, even when using WP Super Cache.
If there are any panels on the admin screen that you don't need, you can click on the show/hide button to hide them until you need them.

As of 2011 this plugin is being actively developed and maintained. New features are planned for later on in 2011. If you have ideas for new features do let me know - I can't promise to do them any time soon - but if they are good and practical I can add them to my list.
Add hReview and AggregateRating support based on schema.org, which help you increase search traffic by making SERP results more eye-catching. This plugin supports only the editorial ratings submission (edito/author rating), this means customers and site visitors are not involved in the rating or review process, this means rating reflects only the author's opinion. This plugin is written by Hesham Zebida, the founder of FamousBloggers.net.

According to Google, rich snippets "extract and show more useful information from web pages than the preview text that you are used to seeing." Significantly, Google is using structured data open standards such as microformats and RDFa to power the rich snippets feature. Google is is inviting publishers to mark up their HTML. Webmasters can find more detailed information about Google's rich snippets here.
After installing the plugin, and once you publish your first review on your blog, use Googl'e Rich Snippets Testing Tool to check your markup and make sure that Google can extract the structured data from your review. This tool will display a preview of how your review might appear in Google search results.
Abusing search engines in not a good practice, especially if this can hurt others, some webmasters fake or fabricate reviews in a try to get more traffic to their sites. You can easily report them to Google. If you see any spam review fill this form to report it to Google.
Improve user experience by having your above-the-fold (top of the page) CSS styles in-page.
Even if the rest of the CSS files take a seconds to load, these specific CSS styles displayed from the head section ensure a quick rendering of your page and better score in testing systems like Google Page Speed Insights.
But you do not need to maintain two separate stylesheets, just select specific fragments of your theme style file with a special markup to create an above-the-fold styles joining the CSS fragments in the head section.
This plugin enables a special open and close tags that you can insert editing your style.css theme file to surround pieces of code:
... Your theme CSS code fragment ...
But this syntax is not an standard CSS, so you need to include this tags between CSS comments, there are two ways to do it:
The easiest way, the CSS is rendered only in the head but not in the stylesheet. This kind of markup does not allow to use your own CSS comments inside the fragment. Take care to use this way only when the plugin is active, because you are commenting some parts of your theme stylesheet.
... CSS code fragment ...
The unobtrusive way, it allows you to include comments inside fragments, but the fragments are rendered both in the head section and the CSS file. This way is plugin-independent, and your theme stylesheet will keep running with this plugin activated or not.
/* [css-above-the-fold] */
... CSS code fragment ...
/* [/css-above-the-fold] */
You can use these two kinds of markup combined in your CSS File.
The resulting CSS fragments introduced in the header are compacted and minified.
This plugin only read the style.css file when it is modified, and stores the results using the WP options API.
This plugin disables the new WordPress emoji functionality.
Note: Emoticons will still work and emoji's will still work in browsers which have built in support for them. This plugin simply removes the extra code bloat used to add support for emoji's in older browswers.
The EWWW Image Optimizer is a WordPress plugin that will automatically and losslessly optimize your images as you upload them to your blog. It can also optimize the images that you have already uploaded in the past.
Because EWWW Image Optimizer uses lossless optimization techniques, your image quality will be exactly the same before and after the optimization. The only thing that will change is your file size. The one small exception to this is GIF animations. While the optimization is technically lossless, you will not be able to properly edit the animation again without performing an --unoptimize operation with gifsicle.
Images are optimized using the Linux jpegtran, optipng, pngout, and gifsicle image tools (available for free). For PNG files, either optipng or pngout can be used. If you want the best optimization, install both, set optipng to level 3 (beyond that is just crazy and rarely yields significant gains) and pngout to level 0.
EWWW Image Optimizer calls optimization utilities directly which is better suited to shared hosting situations where these utilities may already be installed. The programs we use (jpegtran, optipng, pngout, and gifsicle) generally have very minimal dependencies (pngout has none), so all you will need is a hosting account with shell access, and build utilities installed. You can then tell EWWW Image Optimizer where you compiled these utilities. I use Bluehost, which meets these requirements, and Dreamhost is another suitable alternative. There are likely others out there that I am not aware of.
Why use EWWW Image Optimizer?
Features re-optimization capability, and bulk optimizing. The NextGEN Bulk Optimize function is located under the Wordpress Tools menu, and should optimize all images in all galleries. If anyone has a better idea for where the tool should go, feel free to post in the support area, or on the plugin homepage. Alternatively, if you can figure out a way to hook into the existing NextGEN menu, that would be ideal. I just can't seem to find a way to do that. NOTE: Does not optimize thumbnails on initial upload, must re-optimize images to optimize thumbnails.
Quickly and easily build forms with a simple drag-and-drop interface and in-place editing. There are dozens of form-building plugins out there to create forms, but most are confusing and overly complicated. With Formidable, it is easy to create forms within a simple drag-and-drop interface. You can construct custom forms or generate them from a template. Shortcodes can be used as well as spam catching services.
<?php echo FrmEntriesController::show_form(2, $key = '', $title=true, $description=true); ?>in your template

Get the real Time On Site and Bounce Rate in Google Analytics. Google Analytics calculates the Time On Site based on the length of time between a user entering your site and their last page view. This won't give you the REAL Time on Site and Bounce Rate stats.
Worst case scenario A visitor is very interested in one of your pages and takes 2 minutes and 13 seconds to read the article. After this he bookmarks the page and leaves. This visitor stayed 2 minutes and 13 seconds on your page, but never interacted with it. To Google that is a bounce! And bounced visits are marked 0:00 Time on Site. Not fair, right?
Another bad scenario A visitor goes to your website and stays 1 minute and 11 seconds on the first page. Then, he goes to a second page where he stays 1 minute and 12 seconds. Without any interaction on this page, he leaves. Since Google doesn't know how long your visitor stayed on the second page, Google will add only the time the visitor spent on the first page to Analytics. Not fair, right?
This plugin sets this straight. It will tell Google Analytics every 10 seconds that your visitor is still on the page and on top of that it will also let Google know there was some interaction on that page.
This plugin makes use of Google's Event Tracking API and is totally accepted by Google. The results are more accurate Time on Site and Bounce Rate statistics. The plugin is based on a script made by Brian Cray.
Simple and effective. Out-of-the-box.
With this plugin you can easily create buttons, boxes, different sliders and much, much more. Turn your free theme to premium in just a few clicks.

Be careful when updating to 4.0.0 version in next time. It will be massive update, that affect many code.
Have a translation? Contact me (for translators ONLY)
A powerful yet user friendly plugin that automatically creates a context specific index or table of contents (TOC) for long pages (and custom post types). More than just a table of contents plugin, this plugin can also output a sitemap listing pages and/or categories across your entire site.
Built from the ground up and with Wikipedia in mind, the table of contents by default appears before the first heading on a page. This allows the author to insert lead-in content that may summarise or introduce the rest of the page. It also uses a unique numbering scheme that doesn't get lost through CSS differences across themes.
This plugin is a great companion for content rich sites such as content management system oriented configurations. That said, bloggers also have the same benefits when writing long structured articles. Discover how Google uses this index to provide 'Jump To' links to your content.
Includes an administration options panel where you can customise settings like display position, define the minimum number of headings before an index is displayed, other appearance, and more. For power users, expand the advanced options to further tweak its behaviour - eg: exclude undesired heading levels like h5 and h6 from being included; disable the output of the included CSS file; adjust the top offset and more. Using shortcodes, you can override default behaviour such as special exclusions on a specific page or even to hide the table of contents altogether.
Prefer to include the index in the sidebar? Go to Appearance > Widgets and drag the TOC+ to your desired sidebar and position.
Custom post types are supported, however, auto insertion works only when the_content() has been used by the custom post type. Each post type will appear in the options panel, so enable the ones you want.
Translations are more than welcome. If you have any advice in making it easier to translate, please let me know.

An extremely robust and user friendly WordPress anti-spam plugin that stops blog comment spam cold, including trackback and pingback spam. Enjoy blogging on WordPress without spam! Includes spam-blocking contact form feature as well.
Comment spam has been a huge problem for bloggers since the inception of blogs, and it just doesn't seem to go away. The worst kind, and most prolific, is automated spam that comes from bots. Well, finally there is an anti-spam plugin for WordPress that provides an effective solution, without CAPTCHA's, challenge questions, or other inconvenience to site visitors. WP-SpamShield eliminates automated blog comment spam from bots, including trackback and pingback spam.
Before I developed this plugin, our team and clients experienced the same frustration you do with comment spam on your WordPress blog. Every blog we manage had comment moderation enabled and various other anti-spam plugins installed, but we still had a ton of comments tagged as spam in the spam queue that we had to sort through. This wasted a lot of valuable time, and we all know, time is money. We needed a solution.
Comment spam stems from an older problem - automated spamming of email contact forms on web sites. I developed a successful fix for this a while ago, and later applied it to our WordPress blogs. It was so effective, that I decided to add a few modifications and turn it into a WordPress plugin to be freely distributed. Blogs we manage used to get an excessive number of spam comments show up on the spam queue each day - now the daily average is zero spam comments.
To further the development of this anti-spam plugin, I now study thousands and thousands of potential spam comments from many test blogs and contributors. I use a special diagnostic version of the plugin, which provides much more information on each of these spam comments than what is shown in WordPress. By analyzing patterns and behaviors consistent with spam, I can continually improve the plugin and ensure future accuracy.
How does it feel to blog without being bombarded by comment spam? If you're happy with the WP-SpamShield WordPress anti-spam plugin, please let others know by giving it a good rating!
For more info and full documentation, visit the WP-SpamShield homepage.
This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.
The static html files will be served to the vast majority of your users, but because a user's details are displayed in the comment form after they leave a comment those requests are handled by the legacy caching engine. Static files are served to:
99% of your visitors will be served static html files. Those users who don't see the static files will still benefit because they will see different cached files that aren't quite as efficient but still better than uncached. This plugin will help your server cope with a front page appearance on digg.com or other social networking site.
If for some reason "supercaching" doesn't work on your server then don't worry. Caching will still be performed, but every request will require loading the PHP engine. In normal circumstances this isn't bad at all. Visitors to your site will notice no slowdown or difference. Supercache really comes into it's own if your server is underpowered, or you're experiencing heavy traffic. Super Cached html files will be served more quickly than PHP generated cached files but in every day use, the difference isn't noticeable.
The plugin serves cached files in 3 ways (ranked by speed):
If you're new to caching use PHP caching. It's easy to set up and very fast. Avoid legacy caching if you can.
Advanced users will probably want to use mod_rewrite caching, but PHP caching is almost as good and recommended for everyone else. Enable the following:
Garbage collection is the act of cleaning up cache files that are out of date and stale. There's no correct value for the expiry time but a good starting point is 1800 seconds if you're not using legacy mode. If you are using that mode start with an expiry time of 600 seconds.
If you are not using legacy mode caching consider deleting the contents of the "Rejected User Agents" text box and allow search engines to create supercache static files.
Likewise, preload as many posts as you can and enable "Preload Mode". Garbage collection will still occur but it won't affect the preloaded files. If you don't care about sidebar widgets updating often set the preload interval to 2880 minutes (2 days) so all your posts aren't recached very often. When the preload occurs the cache files for the post being refreshed is deleted and then regenerated. Afterwards a garbage collection of all old files is performed to clean out stale cache files. With preloading on cached files will still be deleted when posts are made or edited or comments made.
The changelog is a good place to start if you want to know what has changed since you last downloaded the plugin.

WordPress out of the box is already technically quite a good platform for SEO, this was true when I wrote my original WordPress SEO article in 2008 and it's still true today, but that doesn't mean you can't improve it further! This plugin is written from the ground up by WordPress SEO consultant and WordPress developer Joost de Valk to improve your site's SEO on all needed aspects. While this WordPress SEO plugin goes the extra mile to take care of all the technical optimization, more on that below, it first and foremost helps you write better content. WordPress SEO forces you to choose a focus keyword when you're writing your articles, and then makes sure you use that focus keyword everywhere.
Using the snippet preview you can see a rendering of what your post or page will look like in the search results, whether your title is too long or too short and your meta description makes sense in the context of a search result. This way the plugin will help you not only increase rankings but also increase the click through for organic search results.
The WordPress SEO plugins Linkdex Page Analysis functionality checks simple things you're bound to forget. It checks, for instance, if you have images in your post and whether they have an alt tag containing the focus keyword for that post. It also checks whether your posts are long enough, if you've written a meta description and if that meta description contains your focus keyword, if you've used any subheadings within your post, etc. etc.
The plugin also allows you to write meta titles and descriptions for all your category, tag and custom taxonomy archives, giving you the option to further optimize those pages.
Combined, this plugin makes sure that your content is the type of content search engines will love!
While out of the box WordPress is pretty good for SEO, it needs some tweaks here and there. This WordPress SEO plugin guides you through some of the settings needed, for instance by reminding you to enable pretty permalinks. But it also goes beyond that, by automatically optimizing and inserting the meta tags and link elements that Google and other search engines like so much:
With the WordPress SEO plugin you can control which pages Google shows in its search results and which pages it doesn't show. By default, it will tell search engines to index all of your pages, including category and tag archives, but only show the first pages in the search results. It's not very useful for a user to end up on the third page of your "personal" category, right?
WordPress itself only shows canonical link elements on single pages, WordPress SEO makes it output canonical link elements everywhere. Google has recently announced they would also use
rel="prev" link elements in the
head section of your paginated archives, this plugin adds those automatically, see [this post](http://yoast.com/rel-next-prev-paginated-archives/ title="rel=next & rel=prev for paginated archives") for more info.
WordPress SEO has the most advanced XML Sitemaps functionality in any WordPress plugin. Once you check the box, it automatically creates XML sitemaps and notifies Google & Bing of the sitemaps existence. These XML sitemaps include the images in your posts & pages too, so that your images may be found better in the search engines too.
These XML Sitemaps will even work on large sites, because of how they're created, using one index sitemap that links to sub-sitemaps for each 1,000 posts. They will also work with custom post types and custom taxonomies automatically, while giving you the option to remove those from the XML sitemap should you wish to.
Because of using XSL stylesheets for these XML Sitemaps, the XML sitemaps are easily readable for the human eye too, so you can spot things that shouldn't be in there.
Are you being outranked by scrapers? Instead of cursing at them, use them to your advantage! By automatically adding a link to your RSS feed pointing back to the original article, you're telling the search engine where they should be looking for the original. This way, the WordPress SEO plugin increases your own chance of ranking for your chosen keywords and gets rid of scrapers in one go!
If your theme is compatible, like most Genesis and WooThemes themes are for instance, you can use the built-in Breadcrumbs functionality. This allows you to create an easy navigation that is great for both users and search engines and will support the search engines in understanding the structure of your site.
Making your theme compatible isn't hard either, check these instructions.
Using the built-in file editor you can edit your WordPress blogs .htaccess and robots.txt file, giving you direct access to the two most powerful files, from an SEO perspective, in your WordPress install.
SEO and Social Media are heavily intertwined, that's why this plugin also comes with a Facebook OpenGraph implementation and will soon also support Google+ sharing tags.
This WordPress SEO plugin, unlike some others, is fully Multi-Site compatible. The XML Sitemaps work fine in all setups and you even have the option, in the Network settings, to copy the settings from one blog to another, or make blogs default to the settings for a specific blog.
If you have multiple blogs, setting up plugins like this one on all of them might seem like a daunting task. Except that it's not, because what you can do is simple: you set up the plugin once. You then export your settings and simply import them on all your other sites. It's that simple!
If you've used All In One SEO Pack or HeadSpace2 before using this plugin, you might want to import all your old titles and descriptions. You can do that easily using the built-in import functionality. There's also import functionality for some of the older Yoast plugins like Robots Meta and RSS footer.
Should you have a need to import from another SEO plugin or from a theme like Genesis or Thesis, you can use the SEO Data Transporter plugin, that'll easily convert your SEO meta data from and to a whole set of plugins like Platinum SEO, SEO Ultimate, Greg's High Performance SEO and themes like Headway, Hybrid, WooFramework, Catalyst etc.
Read this migration guide if you still have questions about migrating from another SEO plugin to WordPress SEO.
Currently a huge translation project is underway, translating WordPress SEO in as much as 24 languages. So far, the translations for French and Dutch are complete, but we still need help on a lot of other languages, so if you're good at translating, please join us at translate.yoast.com.
Be sure to also check out the News SEO module if you need Google News Sitemaps. It tightly integrates with WordPress SEO to give you the combined power of News Sitemaps and full Search Engine Optimization.
