Recommended WordPress Theme and Tools

Word press is the best content platform for bloging and general web pages, it’s easy to use and very configurable. However the configurablility can make it had to select what options to use.

After working with a few sites and trying out many themes and plugin, here’s my current list of recommended WordPress plugins:

Atahualpa This is a very customizable theme, you can use menus to configure all the options that you would have to edit style sheets or php code on other themes. It’s well supported and best of all free.

AddThis Social Bookmarking Widget / Button to let readers share your posts.

Advertising Manager – display and manage Ad Sense and other ads.

All in One SEO Pack – configures all the SEO items for your site and posts.

Easy Privacy Policy – configures and managed a privacy policy page for your site, as required by Google Ad Sense.

Google Analyticator – configures and reports on your traffic using Google Analytics.

Google XML Sitemaps – generates your site map and automatically submits it to Google, Yahoo, Bing, & Ask.

WPtouchconverts your site to a smartphone compatible theme  automatically.

I  developed this list based on my experience with Ed Dale’s The Challenge and Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income site. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
