    Hello Blackhats

    Could someone please name some powerfull plugins that I should use.

    Too bad that there isn't a sticky about this..would be every usefull if u ask me.


    I also wonder which Theme I should use.
    My blog is going to be health related. I also found a premium health-related theme but I don't know if it's any good for SEO?

    Kind regards

    Kelsen

    You're not going to find a sticky about plugins because a simple search on google will give you endless lists of great plugins. It all depends on what you're trying to do.

    As far as themes go, you can make any theme more SEO friendly by learning some very basic html/css and php. Most themes are SEO friendly. All in one SEO plugin will help with this too.

    Here are some that I use and find very useful:

    Google XML Sitemaps - practically a must for heavy content sites
    Search Term Tagging 2 (SST2) - automatic long tail traffic. amazing
    Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP) - good for heavy content sites, otherwise do it manually for your sales funnel.
    RSS footer (adds site and postname links to rss feed so in case someone scrapes your stuff you may get an automatic link back)
    All in One SEO - I use Thesis theme which has seo stuff, but I hear great things about it.
    Clean-Contact - not necessary but since Google likes a contact page why not make it easy and protected against spam?
