  • Two Best WordPress SEO Plugins

    By Danno

    There are more WordPress SEO plugins out there than you can poke a stick at; or ever use. I’ve seen at least twenty SEO plugins for WordPress and I wonder who the heck has time to use even a fraction of them? You can learn the bulk of the SEO game by understanding the simple words of StomperNet’s Brad Fallon … “Use your keywords early, and often”.

OK seriously, there is a LOT to know about SEO however you can have Google give you a ton of love by doing some really fast and basic optimization.

    Before you publish

    First up, do your keyword research with free keyword tool at Wordtracker (or similar tool). Find the keywords you are looking to optimize any given post or page for. When you’ve got that down, you can publish your post and optimize that post with the following two essential SEO plugins for WordPress.

      all in one seo is really a very good plug in. Thanks for pointing out. I am also using it on my blog now.

      Thanks for the post.

    • Wordpress Fan:

      All in One SEO is awesome. It is so easy to make your WordPress blogs SEO friendly. It also allows a lot of different options, which is really nice. I don't have the Sitemap Generator installed, but I will have to give it a shot.

    • build a niche store:

      all in one SEO plugin is very good, because its easy and its quick to make wordpress SEO friendly.
      thanks for sharing your idea's and thoughts with us:)

    • News Dirt:

      Good call on those two plugins, they are pretty much "must haves"!

      I like the Ping Optimizer too, because I tend to tweak posts and pages alot so that plugin helps over-pinging and getting labeled as a spammer.

    • Dhillz:

      Whats the difference between 'pro' and the 'basic' version of all in one seo.
      Should I get the pro version ?

    • plugins wordpress:

      nice post! these 2 plugins are really very essential . i always install them.

    • référencement:

      C'est une réalité . WordPress fait gagner un tout fou a tout le monde

    • Kamal Hasa:

      I prefer Google XML sitemap plugin ;)

    • hublon:

      i'm very much happy with the sitemap generator plugin.

    • espejos:

      I tried both all in one seo and platinum seo but they both did funky things with my homepage title that i couldn't resolve. so i just wrote my own little php script that adds meta-description tags, which is all i wanted. (i have to add a custom metadata thingy to my post). oh, really, i modified someone else's php script that i found online.

    • saptak mandal:

      Missing data all in one seo pack is also a good plugin because it will give you a complete view of all in seo plugins.In case if you have missed meta tags for some of your posts it will notify you about those.

    • Petri Lopia:

      Thank you about this plugin tips =) I will definitely use that sitegenerator plugin at my website.
