    Akismet: this helps you fight spam comments. (As your blog grows, you?ll find Akismet not efficient enough. Then, Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin will save you)

    WordPress SEO by Yoast: this helps you optimize your posts for search engine visibility.

    Jetpack by WordPress.com: this adds an array of awesome new features to your blog.

    Limit Login Attempts: this secures your blog from possible unauthorized login attempts.

    Social Share Starter by KK: this is my favorite plugin for creating social sharing buttons, and it?s what I use on my blog.

    Good tools, they're all very common except for the social share buttons by KK. Google didn't give me any results either.
    I like to make my own social share buttons with Wordpress, you have much more customizability.

    I know Jetpack is quite good but if you have hugh content then this is not a good choice for some as it is big file and can slow your site.

    Wordpress is filled with big files! I have to agree with you about not using Jetpack for performance, but if you're not worried about performance it has so many great features. If you're worried about site speed their are a lot of things you can do to help speed it up. I am currently working on a site geared towards mobile users, so I'm extremely focused on performance. For this reason, I am coding it myself not using Wordpress or any framework, and staying away from jQuery. It loads quite fast :)

    Is this an ecommerce site or an authority/amz aff-adsense site? That will make a difference in what plugins to post.
