    What are the benefits of using both Contact Form 7 and cforms? I have CF7 on my blog and it’s pretty efficient for most purposes.

    Also, just wondering if CAPTCHA is really the best way to go since Akismet is pretty good at stopping most spam.

    you may want to use the Grunion contact form instead because is made by Automattic, the same company that made WordPress. It’s more light and pretty awesome.

    Contact Form 7 is nice simple plugin but if you are doing any kind of customer service then Support Tickets Center is a great plugin. Can’t believe it is free!

    Gotta say, this list seems rather weak to me. Several of these are certainly not top-of-class, even for free.

    Having two contact form plugins?

    Why “WP Google Analytics” and not the much better “Google Analytics for WordPress” (by Yoast) or even “Google Analyticator”?

    The sitemaps and seo plugin can be combined into the absolutely best free SEO plugin, “WordPress SEO” also by Yoast. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/

    We should also be skeptical of plugins whose screenshots are from WordPress back a few versions.

    I would have had “Digg Digg”, “Display Widgets”, and “Search Everything” on there as well. Sorry, just not seeing that these are 11 Must Haves.

    Nice plugins. Still in SEO I prefer Yoast instead of the All in One SEO pack 🙂

  11. Ted Wilson says:

    I am somewhat curious about what advantages Yoast brings to the table compared with All in One SEO Pack? Help please!
    Thanks much,

    Really curious as to why so many people use contact form 7 when it doesn’t support GA tracking out of the box. Does nobody care how people find them? :/
