Top WordPress Plugins:

Action PopUp – The Ultimate WordPress Pop-Up tool for capturing more subscribers on your blog.

BackUp WordPress – This plugin is a Backup & Recovery Suite for your WordPress website. It allows you to easily backup your WordPress blog and restore previously saved versions.

Contact Form 7 – This plugin will allow you to easily add contact forms to your website.

Feedburner – This plugin redirects all feeds to a Feedburner feed so you can track every possible subscriber.

Google XML Sitemaps

HeadSpace 2 – An extremely powerful all-in-one SEO plugin.

All in One SEO Pack – The All in One SEO Pack is another top-notch SEO plugin.

MaxBlogPress Favicon – Easily add a favicon to your blog without having to edit any wordpress files.

TweetMeme Button – Allow your visitors to easily retweet your content.

WordPress Automatic Upgrade – As you may already know, WordPress upgrades their software quite often. However, it can be quite a job to update your WordPress version every time they come out with an upgrade. Thankfully, this plugin automates all of that, allowing you to update WordPress with just a few clicks.

Breadcrumb NavXT – Adds a breadcrumb navigation system to your
Wordpress blog.

WP SuperCache
– This plugin is an extremely efficient page caching system that will make your site much faster and responsive. This plugin is very useful for handling sudden bursts of traffic coming from social bookmarking sites like Digg, Twitter, and Delicious. WP-Super Cache basically creates static versions of your pages so that they can be served to your visitors without querying the MySQL database.

Popularity Contest – This plugin will help you see which of your posts are most popular.

SexyBookmarks – This plugin allows your readers to quickly and easily share your posts on all of their favorite social media sites.

*** Disqus Comment System – Disqus is truly revolutionizing the blog comment system, allowing you to instantly turn your blog into a social media community. Disqus allows you to create a much more interactive blog community that connects seamlessly with all of the top social media sites online.

Disqus also provides threaded comments, which allows your commenters to engage with other commenters directly, rather than replying in general to all. The threaded replies are indented, making it easy to track sub-discussions. They also allow for video commenting through Seesmic.

DISQUS also encourages the viral promotion of your blog posts. For example, using Facebook Connect, Disqus provides your readers with the option of posting their comment on their wall in Facebook. Readers also have the ability to send their comments to other services (like Friendfeed and Twitter), which again increases the viral promotion of your content.

If you want to build a stronger community on your blog, connects seamlessly with all of the top social media sites online via blog comments, and increase the viral promotion of each of your posts, then Disqus is definitely for you.

MobilePress – With mobile devices becoming more and more popular, you’ll want to make your mobile users as happy as possible. This plugin allows you to do that by turning your WordPress blog into a mobile friendly blog that’s easy to view on any cell phone, iPhone, or other mobile device.

SEO Slugs – This plugin can help you optimize your blog post URLs for search engines.

WordPress Duplicate Content Cure – The default WordPress structure can create lots of duplicate content within your website with the same archives, categories, and built in search pages. Each of these pages feature excerpts of the full posts with the same content repeated over and over again, which dilutes the value of the most important pages on your site, which are the posts and pages. So this plugin allows you to solve that problem by preventing search engines from indexing wordpress pages that contain duplicate content like archives and category pages.

Pretty Link – This plugin allows you to cloak your affiliate links with ease. Using this plugin you no longer have to build redirects by hand or upload a bunch of PHP files to your server. Pretty Link allows you to shrink, track, and share any URL on the internet from your WordPress site. Pretty Link also allows you to track each hit on your URL and provides a full, detailed report of where the hit came from. This is an excellent plugin for anyone who wants to cloak their affiliate links and track their click stats.

Search Unleashed
– Replaces the standard WordPress Search function
with something that’s much more powerful.

Internal Link Building
– Optimize the internal link structure of your WordPress blog. Very Powerful!!

  22. mike says:

    Hi Kim

    Thanks a heap for all those freebies..btw r we allow to give these away to share with others ?

    I am sure the fall colours are beautiful – used to fish up the rivers north of bc, canada and then run down with the snowbirds to fish the flats !! Dreams!!! cheers

  23. Kim,

    Very nice, thank you.

    However, I think you should put affiliate links here. It’s business and you’re in it to earn a living WHILE provide the information that you do.

    I just think the people who ever have a problem with affiliate links should just not be in business.

    It’s silly how out of hand it’s gotten out there — how people complain when someone uses an affiliate link.

    Anyway, great list of resources.

    Mark

  24. Marc says:

    Thanks for the great resource. I can’t think of a delicate way to say this but…many of the links in the pdf aren’t working. All of the links with anchor text aren’t active.

  25. Chris says:

    Thanks very much for all the free stuff you give out. Isave all of it and have some printed out on my wall.
    Many thanks
    Chris

  26. Paula says:

    Kim, Thanks and so good to hear from you. Always you are generous and knowledgeable. I’m still struggling, and use your dashboard consistently. What a way to organize. I almost cried when I thought I lost it when I changed computers. Now it’s found. Fall is great here in Colorado and I’m setting up some all day bird walks this October.

    Happy Fall and thanks again

    Paula

  27. Thank you Kim – worth a “Stumble.”

    I’ll share two that I’ve personally used over the years:
