    Hi Guys,

    I run a pretty active wordpress based web site (I use it more of a CMS, instead of a straight up blog) and I am wondering what plugins everyone suggests to boost SEO, speed, etc?

    Currently I am running:

    Easy AdSense
    FeedBurner FeedSmith
    Google Analyticator
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Permalink Redirect
    Platinum SEO Pack
    SEO Post Link
    Simple Tags
    Social Media Widget
    W3 Total Cache
    WordPress Related Posts

    Good question, I would like to also know the suggested plugins for an auto blog site.

    Don't think you need to change anything... if you use the clickbump themes which are fast loading you don't have to use platinum seo/all in one seo

    I think quite highly of the SEO plugin, I added it to my site and my Adsense income jumped over night and I have never looked back.

    I am not entirely sure what part of the plugin made the effect, but my ads become much more relevant.

    Anyone else ever see anything like this?
    W3 does allot of things on the backend including the minify, but if you are looking for speed using the CDN fuction in W3 will easily double your speed.

    I write my own themes and can pretty much guarantee that they are faster loading than clickbump.

    The reason I use All in One SEO is because it fills in and displays keywords and description, not to mention the other things it does.

    When one of my sites reaches a certain traffic level, I also install the WP Super Cache plugin, for an immediate speed boost.

    As far as an increase in Adsense Revenue, I haven't tested with/without All in One SEO. I may do that on one of my under-performing sites and see what happens.
