In response to this week’s #blogchat topic, I decided to make a quick post depicting some of the plugins you should install immediately upon setting up WordPress. These plugins will make your WordPress experience amazing and a breeze.

Zemanta – The main reason I use it is for images. It makes searching for images I can legally use simple and quick.

 Print Friendly and PDF This plugin lets readers create printer-friendly versions of your content, without the ads or the crazy code/design messups that frequent it.

Fast Secure Contact FormIt makes getting email from viewers easier, without having to deal with forms and PHP.

WP-Polls - Everyone should have this, especially if you want to know your reader’s opinions.

Tweet Old Post - This plugin automatically tweets some of your old content to your twitter account, giving you that vague appearance of being open 24-7, and interacting with others. Still, remember to be active YOURSELF on Twitter, else you risk looking like a spammer.

 Popular Posts – What better way to show newcomers some of your best posts then with a list? Popular posts helps show other interesting posts you’ve written that others find as great content.

w3 Total Cache – Site running a little slower than it should? Install W3 Total Cache! It helps speed up your site and getting content to readers quicker!

WordPress SEO – I used to be an All-In-One SEO fan until I discovered that it was really bogging down the system. Fortunately, I discovered WordPress SEO, which does almost everything AIOS does, only better. It even helps teach you SEO if you don’t know it.

LiveFyre – I’ve sung the praises of this good commenting plugin more than enough times, so I’ll just say this: DOWNLOAD IT.

What plugins can you think of?
