Got a WordPress management question (assuming there are WordPress experts here in this group): I know it's a good idea to delete the default themes and unused themes once you've chosen to use one, and it's a good idea to remove unused plugins (the Godaddy attack of 2009 or 2010 was an exploit from unused plugins)
All wp installs come with Hello Dolly and wp jetpack
is there any reason to keep either of those?
What function does Hello Dolly contribute to a small business website?
If we use the Yoast SEO plugin (I prefer it to AllInOne SEO) what functions does the wp jetpack offer that Yoast's SEO doesn't do better?

Hello Dolly - just a little fun plugin, we uninstall it.
Jetpack however, we use for quite a bit of functionality. NONE of it is SEO related, so I'm not sure why you compare it to Yoast.
- Stats at a glance inside WP admin (We don't use Google Anyltics) - Subscribe to site / specific comments - Shortcodes automation (youtube video embeds, vimeo video, etc) - Social sharing and page printing widgets.
Whether or not its for you, depends on what you use it for. We disable half off the Jetpack features in the plugin settings, but those we use are used daily.
