    what are your best free or paid plugins to "SEO" your Blog?

    I use only the all-in-one-seo plugin.

    But exist better plugins?

    If you're simply talking about SEO plugins, and not anything else, I use a bit of an integrated system of a few different plugins:

    All in One SEO Pack - Because it works.

    Strictly Auto Tags - this little plugin will check the posts that are being feed in and put the most relevant tags on it based on word density. It's a good first run, and I don't have to do it.

    Auto SEO Tags - after Strictly Auto Tags does its work this one takes over, every time someone comes to a post on one of my blogs from one of the search engines (Big G, Yahoo, etc.), it uses the search terms they used to discover my post, and it automatically updates the tags on that post with those search terms.

    SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 - This plugin uses all the search terms people use to find my blog and creates a search term tag cloud to help with SEO.

    SEO Smart Links - This plugin will create links within your posts content, based on keywords, to other posts that you have.

    Google XML Sitemaps - Because Google bots need a map sometimes to find all the great content you have to share.

    The following 3 aren't specifically SEO, but G likes to see them, and does add ranking for them...

    Contact Form 7 - Because some search engine companies (Big G) want people to be able to contact you, like you're a real business. So, with this one all I had to do was drop in an email address, and it set up a very nice contact form for me. Easy...

    Privacy Policy - I used to use a plugin for this, now I just create a page and paste in a template I use. G00gle likes this on websites.

    Terms of Use - Just like with Privacy Policy.

    As a minimum I would use SEO all in one package, google sml sitemap, and adsense deluxe. I also like the Thesis theme. I'm a complete noob but so far these are working ok for me as far as increasing my rankings. Still trying to figure out how to make so profits though.

    Seriously, All in One SEO Pack is for kids compared to the SEO plugin that i use. It's called Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugin and it's one of the many great plugins developed by Dutch Wordpress/SEO expert Joost de Valk (some very valuable information on his blog as well, you can find it at yoast.com).

    Also, to improve site speed and performance, W3 Total Cache Plugin is a must. Especially if you make use of a CDN (content delivery network) it has some awesome options.

    Go with these 2 SEO plugins and you'll have a powerhouse seo site.

    I'm going to get some people pissed by saying this, but don't use XML sitemaps. If your site is well-structured, search engines don't need them. HTPP sitemaps are okay though.

    SEOPressor is awesome by the way? if it would've been released 10 years ago? back when keyword stuffing was the way to rank high. All it does is tell you if you have your keyword in the Title/Header Tags/Bold-Underlined-italic? stuff that you should know yourself (if you've written your content yourself that is)

    SEO Pressor in the first one.
    Wp Seo by Yoast (better than All in One Seo)
    SEO Friendly Images (title+alt= post title)

    I agree, and one of my favourites is Keyword statistics. Gives your perfect % of keywords used.

    Just use what works best for you... I agree that W3 Total Cache has some advanced features but it was built to be an 'all-in-one' caching tool. As long as you make some sort of use of cache, you'll be good...

    *** In my previous post in this thread, i meant to say HTML Sitemaps, not HTPP sitemaps - Can't edit my posts yet because of stupid spam laws... oh wait... i AM a spammer, just not on this forum ;)

    Easy WP SEO - cheaper and (I think) better alternative to Clickbump/SEOPressor
    SEO Booster PRO - instead of SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2

    SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 - This plugin uses all the search terms people use to find my blog and creates a search term tag cloud to help with SEO.

    This plugin goes one every single WP site I own, the data it provides is priceless....

    Yep All-in-one-SEO is probably the most common and most used.

    I think al-in-all-seo is the best plugin for ON site SEO
