One of the main reasons I love WordPress as a content management system and blogging platform is the availability of free plug-ins. While WordPress is an awesome platform to manage a web site right out of the box, plug-ins enhance user experience and site performance. Some plug-ins are even designed to help secure your WordPress application from hackers.

The following infographic attempts to remove some of the complexity of which plug-ins to run by featuring the top 30 WordPress plug-ins by popularity.

Having the right plug-ins in place as well as properly managing your WordPress application, will help in your path to success.
