    First of all: I think it`s kinda incredible that people make their blog nofollow. Off course, if you`re site is good enough it will draw people anyway, but you will get heaps of traffic if you give the people something for visiting – like a link. And the comments you get doesn`t have to have poor quality just because of this. I would know, I have dofollow and commentluv on all my sites. Works like a charm. Man, I just luuuv commentluv and keywordluv!

    I’m using WP for years and for me it’s the best cms ever been invented. My favourite plugin is All in one seo pack. I have also those on my blogs installed that I didn’t use now. For example, YARP plugin, that simply wasn’t working on several of my sites. May be the matter is in the settings, but I didn’t cope making everything to work, so I just deactivated it and replaced with Simple Tags, which I’ve found quite more useful and easy.

    Hi, I found cool flash photo galleries plugin for WordPress. Named GRAND Flash Album Gallery – multi category flash skin based photo gallery with powerful admin. I used it in my blog. There are so many different settings. You can adjust the color scheme for your blog as you wish. There are many different skins. You can present your photo gallery in a wonderful way, there is a full-screen mode. This is a very cool plugin.

    Would you let me translate and publish by giving feedback to your article in my own blog?

    Best regards

  13. Creating back links from commenting is a great tool. The best way to find these are to go an use googles operator for example: In the google search box enter the following: intext:”powered by wordpress” AND “KeywordLuv” OR “CommentLuv” this will pull out all blogs that provide the plugin and to filter out non blogs we incorporate the “powered by wordpress”

    I’d say the google sitemaps (i believe yahoo has a similiar format), popularity contest and pagination plugins should be built into the core.

    This is a helpful list but I am wondering why I didn’t find anything about the Read More plugin. Did you mention it and I missed it?
    I found your site by searching for the words: read more plugin.

    Any advise on Read More plugin?

    Thanks
