    I have the option of adding these plugins on my wordpress blog. AddToAny: Share/Bookmark/Email Button, Akismet, Fast Secure Contact Form. Should I add these plugins?

    Akismet is pretty standard. It'll help filter out all the spam comments. Then you can harvest those comments on scrapebox ;)

    Share/Bookmark/Email Button - depending on your needs and promotional methods, it can increase traffic even make some articles go viral, but it also destruct visitors = means lover conversions.

    Akismet - can be deleted but only if comments are off or you will use CAPTCHA plugin for contact/comments instead. I use SI CAPTCHA, works better for me.

    Fast Secure Contact Form - Keep it if you need contact form.
