    I thought Yoast has the sitemap addon?

    Now when I am thinking.. I use different plugins in every web site. But let me think... I use this plugin that prevent brute force login, it's recommended plugin you all know it, but I dont remember its name (asks you to install it right after WP installation).
    Тhe other that I always use is - SEO by Yoast the curly ram haha.

    I usually use:
    1. Akismet
    2. Contact Form 7 Or gravity Forms
    3. WP super cache (usually)
    4. WordFence (It's a must!)
    5. Wp Bouncer

    I don't use any seo plugins as I'm doing the onpage optimization/customization myself, so I don't need those tools.

    #4 is a cool backup plugin. Very simple, almost drag and drop, and it works.
    It's free, also. Very convenient for transferring blogs from one hosting to another.

    I had some problems with Yoast sitemap, and I'm using this plugin for now, but maybe I'll return to yoast's solution soon.

    Hello,

    These are our options:

    1) All in one SEO pack - that will optimize your blog for SEO.
    2) W3 total cache - improves user experience and page speed.
    3) Wordfence - didn't count but it claims to make the website 50 times faster and more secure.
    4) Contact form - great tool to create a niche for the readers to contact you.
    5) WP statistics - easy tool to follow readability of your site.

    Hope that works!
