    What do we put on post description in All In One seo ? Is it the same as the one in the home description?
    Are the home title and description the ones that will appear on the search engine?
    And what are excerpts and do we need add tags to posts?

    building my site for the first time and its quite confusing lol:D

    I personally don't fill anything in with All-In-One SEO below the "Home Keywords" box. I may be missing something but my sites rank well by just leaving the other entries below there as they are. The "Home Title" is what will appear on the search engine results. Sometimes the SE's will also pick up the home description but not always.

    The home title and home description are what will show on the SERP (Search Engine Results Page) if the home page is what is indexed and showing up on the SERP.

    Excerpts are little summaries of the post / page's content. I never use them.

    It appears to me that you are actually asking about the content you should put on the individual post pages. It is a bit redundant perhaps to fill in both the excerpt, and then the fields relative to the ALL-IN-ONE plugin for single posts.

    If you are going for the SEO benefits, and UNLESS you have a unique theme that specifically uses excerpts, then it is sufficient to leave the excerpt field blank, and complete the ALL-IN-ONE fields at the bottom of your posts when creating or editting them.

    Regarding what content - The content in the fields at the bottom is primarilly conveyed to search engines as Meta data, and it is important to heavily target your desired keywords when crafting the summary, the title, and the keywords.

    As an aside, I generally use the same keywords for both my tags as I do in the "keyword" field for the ALL-In-One. Hope it makes sense and helps!

    I think All in One SEO works out of the box. I am also using it in my blogs but only filling out the first three fields, title, keywords and meta tags. When adding some posts, I leave all the fields blank.

    I'm not sure what measurable benefits this plugin brings. If it's helping my sites to rank, I don't know.

    It actually provides a huge benefit. It will format your page titles and meta tags to whatever you like. This allows you to set a keyword that will be sitewide. It's a very powerful plugin.

    I would recommend messing with the fields below the top 3.. specifically the page titles and post titles. The code that exists will input the page name and the blog name by default. Try adding a keyword in between then for the page titles, update the settings, and then load a page. You'll see the changes that were made and hopefully understand how it works a little better.
