    After that you activate the plugin in go back to your post scroll a little bit down and change the titel/keywords and your done.
    You donĀ“t need the two other plugins with all SEO you can remove them.

    You wanna hardcode your meta tags?
    If that is the case have a look in the header.php file of your template.
