    Some of the names are self explanatory, you'll have to search wordpress.com or good old google but these are pretty good.

    breadcrumb-navigation-xt
    platinum seo
    yet-another-related-posts-plugin
    google-sitemap-generator
    http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/sitemap-generator-plugin-for-wordpress/
    http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/readme/wp-pagenavi.html

    Some of these require a basic ability to edit your theme to work.

    Its free hard to screw wordpress up... even out of the box it will still perform nicely in the serps... but when you start to add some plugins.. its an SEO machine..

    Good post tho..
