5 WordPress plugins I love

This week’s #5 things from Mumof2  are my top WordPress plugins :

  1. CommentLuv – Andy Bailey.
    This is one of the nicest plugins because it allows visitors who have a blog to choose what link they would like to leave. It’s free (bonus!)
  2. Jetpack by WordPress.com – Automattic
    I stumbled across Jetpack and have found it to be really user friendly. It has loads of nifty features which means that a new blogger/wordpress.org owner doesn’t have to be a techy to start using it. It’s free (bonus!)
  3. WordPress SEO – Joost de Valk
    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the latest buzz word in the world of the tinterweb. This is my latest find and I am loving learning along the way and discovering how much work I need to do on Mumof2 – but I am happy as my brain is enjoying the figuring out process. It’s free (bonus!) and easy to install as a wordpress plugin.
  4. Sucuri Security – Sucuri Security
    Well – I like making sure things are tight and Sucuri is quick and tells me straight off if something is not right. I like the way it lists google etc and lets you know whether you are blacklisted etc. (I am not blacklisted – just to let you know and I don’t know what it would entail if you are!). It’s free (bonus!)
  5. Akismet – Automattic
    I don’t like spam and people taking advantage and leaving links or dodgy sites. Akismet generally takes care of that and so I don’t have to trawl through comments and delete the ones that are just dumping links. You do have to pay for the subscription but in this case I think it’s worth it!

If you would like to join in the linky below ( it can be about anything as long as it’s 5 things) …don’t forget to grab a badge and add it to your post – thanks!
