    What are you top 3 or top 5 WP plugins? I have a site that's getting traction and I don't have much on it as far as plugins other than security plugins. I don't even have a social sharing plugin.

    Generally speaking, what are your top 3 or top 5? If you can please list the plugin names, what they do, and why you like them.

    Thanks!

    wp better security
    yoast
    wp super cache

    Those three as a standard... your wordpress sites leave foot prints for the plugins and themes you use, so I try to mix it up.
