    I like those two plugins they both work well.

    As for the extra SQL queries, I have no idea. They are being used on my SEO blog (hosted by you) so if you want, feel free to log into my account and take a peek. If you need login details let me know.

    It's more of a general reflection

    Since I started using caching I've seen huge performance increases :)

    From my post on top wordpress Plugins

    I use:
    WP Notable: "Notable displays a series of icons below each post allowing your readers to easily submit you to many different social bookmarking and networking sites."

    FlickrRSS: Flickr images on your homepage, a great tool for integrating your photos on your blog.

    Related Posts: Related Posts is great for you and your readers, when it comes to reader retention, that is keeping people on your site, its a nice option to let people be able to read posts related to other articles you wrote. Related posts does just that.

    Ultimate tag Warrior: This is the essential Tag Tool for wordpress, there is so much you can do with it, each post can be tagged.

    Google Sitemaps: After all your hard work posting, its a good idea to make sure Google Search Engine knows about every page/post on your site. Google Sitemaps does just that, simple to install, once you have set it up head over to Google Webmaster site, and you can inform Google of the location of the Sitemap file.

    I use SeeTheFace's Wordpress Plugin . Bloggers can upgrade their wordpress blog to a video blog instantaneously. It allows bloggers to add video recording capabilities to their blogs just by doing a few mouse clicks.

    Be very careful with that one ... you shouldn't really need to execute php from posts.

    I use WP-DB-Backup to make a dump of the blog database and have it mailed to me. I always try to have backups automated.

    For those of you with large blogs the load might be an issue however.
