Top Wordpress Plugins for Blogging Part 1 of 2

I've spent some time working on this blog post mainly because I wanted to be sure that I was passing along the greatest content I possibly could.

I spent my time trailing and testing these SEO plugins myself, just to make sure they worked the way they said they would.

Throughout all of the courses I studied, I accumulated what I learned and this article is what I found.

What I present to you here is my overall tried and tested list for the "Top Wordpress plugins." Not only did I include the best SEO plugins for you blog, but I also included some plugins to help give your readers and subscribers a more friendly "environment" when they visit your blog.

I am going to tell you exactly which plugins I have on my Wordpress blog, which is a decent list to turbo-boost your Wordpress blog, but - in order to get you the entire list, I have to break things into 2 articles.

As a bit of "general knowledge", there is an easy way to download all of these plugins into your blog. When you're in your wordpress backoffice, select "Plugins" and then "Add New", and then enter any of the plugins that I gave you here into the search bar.

When the description comes up for that specific plugin, simply click the "Install" link, and Wordpress will automatically download and install the plugin for you.

Anyways, this is the first half, and they are in no particular order, but I will mention that I put the SEO plugins at the beginning.

All In One SEO Pack - This is a MUST HAVE for SEO optimization of your blog posts. The idea is that you want to optimize each post - not just your main blog site. With the All in One SEO, you will be able to edit the title, meta description, and keywords for each individual post - not just your main blog site.

On each individual post you create, there is an area named All in one SEO in the editing window where you can tweak the title, keywords and descriptions.

Headspace 2 - This plugin is All In One SEO Pack on steroids.

Now, that will probably tempt you to want to use it over All In One SEO, BUT I will warn you that is it a bit more difficult to set up.

Google XML Site Maps - Sitemaps are an easy way for you to inform search engines about pages on your blog. Basically, a Google Sitemap is a file which contains URLs and some additional information for all public pages or documents of your website. Google can read this file and add the defined pages to their index.

In other words - it's a "map" telling the search engines to come take a look and crawl through the site and to "look at me, look at me!"

No-Follow Blogroll SEO - If you are familiar with SEO, you know that linking out to other sites from every single page of your site (such as a blogroll or internal linking does) can hurt your SEO. You lose too much "link juice."

This plugin will allow you to give "link love" (via a followed link) to sites in your Blogroll from the homepage of your blog, which is most likely the strongest page anyway in terms of SEO link juice.

Simple Tags - This plugin is a way to improve your tags or keyword selections. This plugin includes suggested tags, related tags, a tag-cloud, and autocompletion tags suggestions.

MyBlogLog - This is actually a social networking widget run by When you load this plugin, you can have a widget on your screen.

The widget simply adds a box that becomes a window into your own blog social network.

The widget will show you recent readers to your blog, and then within MyBlogLog, you can view stats on where they come from, what they viewed, and where they went.

Where Does that Leave Things?

Well, that is just the first half of the top Wordpress plugins for internet marketers.
