    I use wordpress seo plugin and wordpress navigation plugin in each of the wordpress websites i create. The first one allows me to add meta titles, keywords and description to the pages and posts. While the second one helps in creating a good paging navigation in the wordpress posts, categories and archives.
    Note - wordpress does not provide these above features by its own.

    You should have wordfence and sucuri scanner plugins, everything else is optional.

    Backup buddy, but it's paid.

    @White Night: TinyMCE discontinued, the new one is "WP EDIT" from the same developer.

    Wordpress SEO is a must.
    wordfence is a must when your website is making decent profit.
    Contact form is very important.


    is WP Super Cache really that useful?

    Only install necessary plugins, so many plugins may affect performance of your website. Here's my suggestion.

    Keep your plugins to a minimum... I run 3 total on a site that gets 2M hits a month.
