    Hello,

    First of all, this is just my opinion, so for sure any user can say that he used X plugin and it dropped his blog to the end of Google. Anyway, based on my own experiencie, there are 5 plugins that you need in WordPress if you want to create a good-looking site for Google, Yahoo, Bing and etc.

    1. - SEO Friendly Images. Bored of adding manually the TITLE and the ALT Title of every image that you post? This plugins adds automatically -for example- the title of the entry to the tags of the image. I've configured it with %title, but you can also add the tags, the category and any other text -beware of over-optimization!-. Download link: http: // wordpress. org/extend/plugins/seo-image/

    2. - SEO Smart Links. As you know, adding some internal links over your entries can help you to get some positions in your SERPs. This plugin automatically adds links to your entries and you can configure it just exactly as you need. Download link: http: // wordpress. org/extend/plugins/seo-automatic-links/

    3. - WordPress SEO. By Yoast, just that, no needs more explanation. Downlaod link: http: //wordpress. org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/

    4. - WPTouch. Okay, you can edit your theme and you can create a mobile version just with your skills. But if you only need some mobile-version of your site, this plugin is the best option. Download link: http: //wordpress. org/extend/plugins/wptouch/

    5. - WP About Author. The best way to get that famous picture of Google+ showing on the left side of your entries in Google. Download link: http: //wordpress. org/extend/plugins/wp-about-author/

    Sorry for not posting something like "get rich in two days" or "rank your site in the #1 position of the key "loss weight" ". I just want to help WP-users to improve them sites :) All coments are welcome!

    Thanks for the post. It's always helpful to see what other people are using, otherwise you can get stagnant.

    Pretty Link is also quite useful :)
    And... I love Jetpack for Stats etc. It also has a mobile theme feature!
