The most popular FREE WordPress Plugins according to ProBlogger users.
Over at ProBlogger, Darren Rowse asked his community, “What are your favourite FREE WordPress Plugins?”

The Top 10
|Plugin name||Number of mentions|
|All in One SEO Pack||31|
|Google XML Sitemaps||26|
|Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YAFPP)||16|
|WPtouch iPhone Theme||12|
|Broken Link Checker||11|
|WP Super Cache||10|
|Contact Form 7||9|
