    On my main whitehat blog, I'm using All-in-one SEO pack plugin at the moment. Is it considered the best? Or are there better alternatives? Thanks.

    Actually, I have read many conflicting things about these SEO packs.

    Wordpress in its default state is already very SEO friendly, and from what I understand additional packages only bog down the server. I could be wrong though.

    I'd just make sure you have a sitemap, and the All-in-one SEO pack should be enough...

    I use All-in-one SEO pack in my blogs.
    Don't forget to put "/%postname%/" in the permalinks structure.

    "All in one seo" is the winner for me!

    For me, the Plantinum and the All in One are doing pretty much the same.
    As stated before, more important is the %postname% in the perma link structure.

    One of the first plug-ins I always install is "All In One SEO" like others on this thread. It's a very high quality, free SEO plug in.

    "Dagon Design Sitemap Generator" is the plugin I use for that.

    Don't think you can limit yourself to one plugin. I agree with those above me and would say you need to use, at a minimum the following:

    "Dagon Design Sitemap Generator"

    All-in-one SEO

    Google Sitemap

    change your permalinks to /%postname%/ (not a plugin)

    I somehow did not find 'All in one SEO' to be good, using it removes the blog tag line from google search results.

    I prefer:

    Wordpress SEO image
    Wordpress SEO title tag

    These both do the work for me.

    In fact, I get a few visits daily from images.google.com due to SEO image plugin !!

    I use Platinum SEO for all my blogs but I'm still looking for a way to insert " default" tags and keywords. Everytime I get the posts from Wp-robot or any rss poster I have to add manually the tittle and keywords. Someone told me this is a waste of time but I believe this is there for a reason. Any suggestions if this can be done with an " extra" plugin? Please take a look at the following pic..

    Only way would be with some custom coding. What I would look at is adding a couple lines of code within WPRobot for when it creates the post to also add the custom tags for both the title and description. Then use the same information from the post for these tages.

    All in one seo pack has only basic settings which may drive you crazy when you want more control...
    For those who want more control over content like tag pages keywords, titles etc... Head2Space is definately way to go!
