    Many times we come across a wordpress blog and then go WOW ...what the hell plugin is he using or the theme that is looking so awesome. And after lot of useless searchign we cant find the exact material.

    But not anymore...

    its quite basic but then not every one know bout it..otherwise they would have blocked it :D

    So just go to google.com

    and search for
    inurl:wp-content/plugins/ + KEYWORD

    you will get a list of wordpress blogs with that keyword in url
    and the path to there plugin directory

    Play well :D

    by the way
    wp-content/uploads/

    is another good data spot :D

    There is a lot of very useful plugins that are paid (ie for Autoblogs).
    BTW, this will work only with WP <= 2.7 , they added a blank index.html in version 2.8+

    This is well known information, but with the recent versions of wordpress, they now include an index page in both the plugins and templates folders so you can't view them by going to the url
