    For safety go for:

    Login Lockdown -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/login-lockdown/
    Secure Wordpress -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/secure-wordpress/
    Theme Authenticity Checker TAC -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tac/
    AntiVirus -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/antivirus/
    SEO:
    All in one SEO -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/
    Sitemap:
    XML Sitemap -
    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/
    Then its just up to you whatever makes things work.

    Try to keep it as light as possible though.

    FYI :p everyone always thinks that they need a plugin for everything, the more plugins you use the slower your site will be. If its something simple like google analytics or meta tags dont get a plugin just google how to put them in your header, its really simple and saves you space for more important plugins.

    Also philionaire, nothing against you but you really dont need all them security and anti virus plugins. Just my 2 cents.

    No problem :).

    I do admit it is a bit overkill, but I prefer to be safe than sorry.

    I like login lockdown as it stops bruteforcing or passwords and secure WP for various features.

    TAC is only if you download templetes as there is a chance they have been hacked or have malicious code in them. No need to keep after an initial chack.

    Antivirus is kinda the same as TAC as it checks for malicious code, again no need to hold on to.

    Totally agree though: Try to keep the number down. If I knew code I would try to do as much as possible myself, but alas I cannot, so plugins it is.

    I think I need to go to fiverr again for my latest site and get my wordpress coder to take out all the hidden links in plugins.

    I check my outgoing links with this:

    Code:

    You cannot do much about links coming into your site, but you do something about the ones in your site.

    Sometimes I think making sites with plain HTML might be easier lol.
