I use these Plugins:
- Akismet: checks your comments against the Akismet web serivce to see if they look like spam or not. I use this because I haven’t bothered to fix .

- WP-UserOnline: keeps track of the number of concurrent users online.
- Google Sitemaps: genereates a new version of your site’s Google Sitemap, which helps Google index your site.
