Conclusion

While it is true Plugins can be very handy for giving your WordPress Website some marketing juice, they can also be risky.  Make sure you do your homework and backup up your site before you upload a plugin.

Many on this list are “Evergreen” standouts on the best of lists:  Wordpress SEO, W3 Total Cache, Akismet, Contact Form 7..

A couple that caught my attention:

WP Retina 2X – You may have heard the term “Retina Display”.  Most laptops and desktops display images at fairly low DPI.  But the new Retina Display devices are a higher DPI and the images are much crisper.  This is done by reducing the size of the images by half.  In order for your site to take advantage of the Retina Display you must have images that are doubled in size.  But since most screens are not done this way, you must also still have your standard sized images.  This plugin allows you to load 2 sizes of the same image and the plugin will serve up the correct image for the screen resolution.

Fancier Author Box – This one is pretty self explanatory it creates a nice looking Author box below each of your blog posts.  Giving each blog post, some personalization and a call to action.

Page Builder – This plugin is amazingly complex but pretty simple to understand. It gives you to ability to make customized pages using a drag and drop system.  In other words you can create landing page style pages without knowing HTML, CSS, or JS.
