Throughout my blogging career I’ve used several SEO plugins, from the All in One SEO Plugin to the Platinum SEO but I’ve given them all away for the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin. The reason for changing to this plugin is because it does so much more than all the others I have used. Whereas they were great for optimising the general aspects of the blog they were somewhat lacking when it came to optimising actual posts and pages.
