WordPress Plugins I love

I am going to keep this short, sweet, and to the point! Here is a list of WordPress plugins I love and highly recommend to anyone using the WordPress CMS web platform.  I will add the links eventually, but if you search for these, you can find them fast.


1) wp-db-backup
essential for backing up your wordpress databse.  You may not use it right away and it might sit around collecting dust, but you need it!

2) velvet-blues-update-urls
this is EXTREMELY essential if you ever move your wordpress blog to another hosting provider.  Let me put it this way – I have built a ton of WordPress sites – I move them from host to host, and I KNOW how to change the database info.  This plugin makes database URL changes a cinche – it is an absolute lifesaver.

3) Super-Cache:  If you are hosted on GoDaddy – this will become your best friend.  I am not knocking GoDaddy, but almost every WordPress install on GoDaddy runs slowly.  If you do a reverse IP look-up, it could be that they have a TON of sites on one shared server, but that is just my guess 😉


1)All-in-one-seo pack
