    I think all in one seo is decent. I used to use platinun seo plug-in, but it has not been updated in a while.

    Yoast SEO for the win :) many more features than All in One SEO

    OnlyWire Syndicator plug-in
    Yet Another Related Posts plug-in
    No Self Ping
    SEO Automatic Links
    SEO Image
    SEO Slugs
    Strictly Auto Tags
    WP Policies
    WP Super Cache

    **********************

    all those either directly or indirectly play a critical role in your blog SEO

    Enjoy :)

    I'd have to agree with SEO_Alchemy here...

    Yoast SEO is awesome although there is some learning curve.

    Yoast WordPress SEO plugin is the best. It shows you how your links are going to be seen in the search engine so you do not write to much in your meta tags. Yoast WordPress SEO plugin also gives you the chance to change your titel structure of your entire site. Use Yoast and you will not have a problem ranking as long as you know how to tweak it in the right way.

    Is Yoast really that powerful? I've been using "All in one SEO" all the time since I thought Yoast is too clumsy and buggy, at least it was 2 years ago...

    What type of issues are you having. I had some issues and thought I was using the plug-in wrong. I re-installed all in one seo and everything seemed to be ok.

    I prefer all in one seo on 2,3 things than yoast.
    1.all in one seo does all the basic tweaks that yoast does.
    2. All in on seo is light,while yoast is consuming much bandwidth than other,it slowing down the site compared to the other.
    3.Yoast has a lot of features past just SEO including robots.txt management and even sitemaps adjustments.I think Yoast is not just an SEO plugin,moreover its a webmaster assistant plugin.

    When I upgraded to WP 3.5 I lost the html/text editor so really struggled to update posts. Took me a lot of playing around before I discovered Disabling Yoast cured the problem. Switching back to all in one seo and xml sitemaps now for all my sites.

    Yeah, actually I had pertty much same impression of Yoast that it was too much cumbersome, I don't like tools like that.

    I'm still sticking with Yoast. Everything is cumbersome if you dont take the time to learn it. Its functionality is superior compared to other plugins. It does many other things that you eould normally need an additional plugin.

    That's what i told already. Yoast is not just a SEO plugin.It has lot of other options and programs also.You don't know,how many pages it puts in your wp content and thus results in Bandwidth Limit.I am not saying Yoast is winner over All in one seo,instead you gotta see them as two entirely different plugins at least.

    Have a look at SEO Ultimate I think this is the most complex and probably the best you can get.
