    Taktical's Favorite Things

    Here is a short list and a download link for a bunch of plugins that I install for every site.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Platinum SEO - Multi functional pack that cleans up your SEO. Title tags, cannonical URLs, automatic 301 redirects, automatic META tags and others.

    Redirection - A much more deeply involved plugin that deals with 404s and 301s. creates logs of errors and automatically fixes broken links.

    Automatic SEO Links - Great feature for internal linking. Searches your website for keywords in content and links them to pre-determined pages in your site. Doesn't repeat words or links, and is a brilliant way to interlink your site.

    Google XML Sitemaps - Generates and submits sitemaps for Google, Yahoo and Bing for your website every time you make a post. I suggest using a reliable XML sitemap for your webmaster tools but this keeps your site up to date.

    SEO Friendly Images - Just like it sounds, changes the alt and title tags of images to improve SEO and get image traffic. also makes sure that you're w3C compliant.

    WP Super Cache - Builds static HTML copies of your webpages for faster loading and more google love

    Ultimate Google Analytics - Obviously an analytics plugin. But it smartly doesn't slow loading time and actually provides a method to track clicks on outbound links, download links and mailto links.

    WP No Category Base - Removes the unnecessary "/category/" part of most wordpress URLs.

    Bonus: Not included in original list, but user subsonic recommended another goodie:


    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Here is a link to download all of these wonderful plugins in one place because I'm just such a damn nice guy...

    Thanks for sharing the list, very useful! I would also suggest using WP No Tag Base alongside WP No Category Base to get rid of those myurl.com/tag/blahblah addresses!

    That was actually my first reaction, Ilan, but I thought it was a bit overboard so I went with Julie Andrews.

    personally some of my favs are hungryFEED(allows images in rss feeds, which makes it great for driving traffic to joomla virtuemart e-commerce sites, using the rss feeds from the categories, and putting them into a widget which you place inside the loop so that it shows up between each post) and google xml sitemaps (the one by arne brachhold)

    and, it's not a plugin, but i do this edit on every wordpress site i make
    i add this to header.php (replace ~static site description~ with the static part of your site description)
    Code:
    <meta name="description" content="~static site description~ - <?php if (is_home () ) { echo 'Home'; }elseif ( is_category() ) { single_cat_title(); echo ' - ' ; bloginfo('name'); }
    elseif (is_single() ) { single_post_title();}
    elseif (is_page() ) { bloginfo('name'); echo ': '; single_post_title();}
    else { wp_title('',true); } ?>" />
    it generates a dynamic meta description tag based off the title tag of the page
    that way each page on the site will have a dynamic meta description that is keyword heavy and seo friendly

    Thanks Tak, I love the part "Automatic SEO Links" since I used the similar one but it's not smart enough now you recommend me this, I found this one really handy one for interlink post. I guess I can get it through plugins search and don't have to download from here, right?

    Cheers!

    I'm curious about this. How effective is it to have the same title tag as META tag? because i use meta descriptions more to increase click through from G. so its more of a marketing tool than an SEO tool

    well taktical, if you look at the code, the first part of it is static, ie. you fill that in and it stays the same, allowing you to use that technique to increase clickthroughs from organic search, the title gets appended to the end, that way google doesn't disregard the page for having duplicate meta description tags
