Following up on an earlier post I thought I'd start this off with my personal favourites.

To make things simpler I'll only list FREE addons:

Archive Adsense - puts adsense in your archives. You could easily use it for other types of banners etc.,

CFM: Google AdSense for Search Integration - vBulletin.org Forum - does what it says on the tin. I'm not sure if people make any money from this, but the tight integration is really nice

Cyb - Advanced Forum Statistics - vBulletin.org Forum - down the bottom of this site's main page. I'm not sure how many people use it and it might be more suited to admins only, but it is interesting

Check Proxy RBL on New User Registration. - vBulletin.org Forum - stop spammers from registering based on DNS blacklist checks.

Members who have visited Today (or in the last 24 hours). - vBulletin.org Forum - handy :)

Spam Decimator - probably the most useful plugin in any vbulletin admin's arsenal. Removing spam is time consuming. This reduces it to one click

Welcome Headers - very handy at reminding / encouraging people to join and post more frequently. The upcoming release of VB has this built in

vbBOL - displays spiders / bots in the who's online list. More for admins than users. This functionality is now included in VB as of the upcoming 3.7 release

iTrader - very handy if you've got any trading / sale / swap system so you can leave feedback alla ebay

Ultimate Side Columns - control the side columns easily

phpAdsNew Integration - if you're using phpadsnew this makes sense
