    hello everyone!
    I am teaching myself html5, css, and java script, i won't be efficient for a few months yet, so i am starting my 1st website through wordpress.
    It is going to be a site dedicated to showing users how to legitimately make money online! what will make this site succeed is that it will be completely legit i wont just be trying to get leads only!! i'll be making my money through referral links for the various methods i'll be posting and later on, adsense!

    what i need to know is, what WP plugins do i need to create a decent solid site. i remember a while back i began creating a different site and i use a SEO plugin that allowed me to edit what my sites google description showed in the search results!
    !
    i'd really appreciate it if you could reccomend me the essential plugins to make my WP professional and working!

    Cheer's , Panoush

    For SEO i'd go with 'All in one SEO' or 'Yoast SEO'. For autoposting your posts to social media sites i'd go with 'Social network auto poster'.

    You know just my 2 cents, but there are hundreds of site that are exactly like yours, why not find a niche that is not as saturated ?

    In any case, here is my list of essential plugins to have when running wordpress.

    1. Archive Disabler - Disable custom post type, taxonomy, date, author and other archives on your WordPress blog.

    2. Background Manager - Background Manager allows you to display a random image as the website background at each visit or as a timed slideshow, without the need to edit the theme.

    3. Better Delete Revision - Better Delete Revision is based on the old "Delete Revision" plugin

    4. DX-Watermark - The pictures automatically add watermark.

    5. Dynamic Widgets - Dynamic Widgets gives you full control on which pages your widgets will appear. It lets you dynamicly show or hide widgets on WordPress pages.

    6. EWWW Image Optimizer - Reduce file sizes for images within WordPress including NextGEN Gallery and GRAND FlAGallery. Uses jpegtran, optipng/pngout, and gifsicle.

    7. Google Analytics for WordPress - This plugin makes it simple to add Google Analytics to your WordPress blog, adding lots of features, eg. custom variables and automatic clickout and download tracking.

    8. SEO Auto Links - With SEO Auto Links you can easily add links (automatically) for keywords and phrases in posts, pages and comments.

    9. W3 Total Cache - The highest rated and most complete WordPress performance plugin. Dramatically improve the speed and user experience of your site. Add browser, page, object and database caching as well as minify and content delivery network (CDN) to WordPress.

    10. WordPress SEO - The first true all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress, including on-page content analysis, XML sitemaps and much more.

    11. WP-DBManager - Manages your WordPress database. Allows you to optimize database, repair database, backup database, restore database, delete backup database , drop/empty tables and run selected queries. Supports automatic scheduling of backing up, optimizing and repairing of database.

    P.S. This is just a list of what I personally use, pick and choose what works for you :)

    thanks a bunch sashablack !!

    i'm choosing this niche as my first site because i have loads of experience in what sites you can earn money legitimatley on, before getting into real business methods and joining BHW i spent most of my childhood/teenage years trawling the web for "easy money etc.." online. so i actually know what i am talking about with the content i add..

    also, this is also only my first site, so i will be a test run of sorts, and i will continue adding to it forever so even though its in a saturated niche i'm pretty confident i'll eventually be getting decent traffic because of the quality content i'll be posting! at the same time as publishing this site i'll be researching niches with low comp..

    thanks again for your extremely helpful post! :)
