    Now that I'm blogging with WordPress I was wondering what plug-ins to get? What do you like?

    So far I have installed the Spam Stopper Hack and it worked wonderfully! I may also install a stats plugin as soon as get around to it. ;)

    OK... Here is what I am running...

    Adhesive:
    Allows easy marking of sticky posts.
    http://www.asymptomatic.net/wp-hacks

    Related Posts:
    Returns a list of the related entries based on keyword matches. If this is your first time using this plugin you will need to run the setup script first in order to create the required full text database index.
    http://www.w-a-s-a-b-i.com/

    StatTraq:
    This plugin will allow you to keep track of every hit on your public WordPress site (note that it does not track admin activity)
    http://www.randypeterman.com/StatTraq/

    (I wanted to use this but the font I wanted to have on looked crap)...
    Title Images2:
    Changes your default text titles into pretty graphical images
    http://chris.coggburn.us/archives/2004/08/04/title-images2-plugin/

    That's it so far (And the default plugins)) ;)

    Oh, I'm trying to run NicerArchives too, but having some problems getting the php to work right when I try to customise the skin.

    http://elasticdog.com/2004/09/optimal-title/

    Description: Mirrors the function of wp_title() exactly, but moves the position of the 'separator' to after the title rather than before. See an example at http://jramer.com - select a post not on the first page.
    ===========
    http://dougal.gunters.org/

    You can add custom fields named "head_meta" and "head_link", which will
    be converted into <meta> and <link> tags.

    Example:
    key: head_meta
    val: name="keywords" content="foo,bar,baz"

    result: <meta name="keywords" content="foo,bar,baz" />

    They look good to me...

    Personally however, I would wrap the h3 tag around the date, and the h2 around the title of the post.

    Not quite so good for accessibility, but better for SEO.

    I created a WordPress SEO plugin for WordPress 2.0 ( should work on 1.5+ ) that will need Ultimate Tag Warrior installed. It is available on my site at:
    http://www.marketingop.us/plugin-page/seo-wordpress-plugin/

    This will truly help optimize your whole head section of your site, with meta tags, rss links, and the title.

    Unlike other Wordpress SEO plugins, you can not enter any term you wish in the meta tags and title section, this plugin uses certain factors to determin what your information should be, so you have the most relevant information possible in the head section of your blog

    Describe a single plugin for Wordpress that you'd recommend.

    I'll start the ball rolling with the Social Bookmarks plugin by Apostolos Dountsis.

    My advice, regardless of what you hear back from AdSense or from other people, is to avoid any and all strategies that draw attention to AdSense ads. If they don't affect click rates, Google probably won't care, but in that case it's a waste of time. If they DO affect click rates, Google will almost certainly conclude that the strategy is a violation of their ToS.

    Remember, once Google bans you as an AdSense publisher, you are banned forever. And not just on the site with the violation but from ALL sites you own or may own in the future. Is it really worth it to take that risk?

    Why, i think adsense Beautifier is ok with google if you add that border between the images and ads. Adsense plugins for wordpress are pretty good.
