  1. Great list, there are a few in here I’m going to check out. There is one I feel should have some consideration that I’ve been using on all my sites, UpdraftPlus. It’s a backup plugin, and it’s quite useful.

  2. Great list Andy! Gave me a lot of ideas for my upcoming WP site. One premium plugin you may consider is Tabulizer for WordPress (new in 2014). It’s a life-saver for anyone working with large data sets and tables or graphs. Also, I would recommend WordPress SEO Plugin.
