    As far as SEO goes, I've used Yoast - I have no complaints...pretty easy to use and it has good ratings.

    I also REALLY like Anti-Spam. I had a huge problem with spam comments, but the day that I installed that plugin, I haven't yet had another spammer.

    WordFence Security is also a good one...I can run security scans on my site and look for nasties and malware. It also reminds you if you have out of date plugins and such..even thought the Dashboard does that anyway.

    WordPress Backup To Dropbox is also something simple but awesome - it connects to your Dropbox account and backs up your entire site to that on a regular basis.
