  2. Google Sitemap Generator came in second with 27 votes. Looks like a lot of bloggers are starting to care about SEO and this plugin is the best tool to tell Google how it should crawl your blog and where to find everything you want found.

  4. Wp-Contact form. This plugin developed by Ryan Duff is used by 17 of 48 bloggers. It creates a contact form on your blog, through which your readers can contact you.

  11. Jerome’s Keywords plugin. It’s another plugin for keywords/tags similar to Ultimate Tag Warrior. It has a little less options and functionality, but does tagging/keywords very well and is easier to use. JK plugin gets 11th place only conditionally, since 4 plugins were recommended by 8 bloggers. So the next 3 plugins (11-14 place) also have the same amount of votes and are ranked in alphabetical order.
  12. Optimal title (8/48) is a SEO related plugin. It mirrors the function wp_title () on your blog, but moves the position of the separator to after the title rather then before. This way you can make blog post name, or category name appear in front of the blog name in the <title> tags (one of the most important elements of on page SEO). If you use the keywords you want to rank for in your blog post titles (which you should), this plugin can help you improve your position in search engines.

Well, lot’s of them are done by this plugin. So if you want to help your users spread the word about your best posts, you may want to install this plugin.
  14. WP-Cache 2.0 (8/48) is “… an extremely efficient Wordpress page caching system to make your site much faster and responsive. It works by caching Wordpress pages and storing them in a static file for serving future requests directly from the file rather than loading and compiling the whole PHP code and then building the page from the database. WP-Cache allows to serve hundred of times more pages per second, and to reduce the response time from several tenths of seconds to less than a millisecond.” It is not that important if you have a low traffic blog, but if you get dugg it can make the difference between your site being up or down for several hours when all the traffic comes flooding in.
  15. Popularity Contest (7/48) A very useful plugin that lets you automatically highlight your best posts to your readers.

Well, the reason is the “pinging” process, through which Wordpress tries to notify various blog search and monitoring services that new blog post is coming up, which can take some time. This plugin solves the problem by separating “pinging” and posting into two separate things.
