    I also use All in one SEO pack. The thing I like most is that you can change the title format, write description and also set keywords. I never tried WP SEO by Yoast or Headspace 2, but I will in the near future as I'm planning to launch another blog.

    I love Yoast SEO plugin. It is more advanced and complete SEO wordpress plugin when compared to other plugins. Another good plugin I love is "GD Star ratings". Using which we can give rich snippets to our blog posts.

    Hi Jonathan, Kevin Stacey here..

    First off, this post is extremely thorough! I don’t see too many bloggers going into detail like you have…that’s the mark of a blogger who knows their SEO plugins. For optimization, free plugins like WordPress SEO by Yoast, Headspace 2 and All in One SEO are really great as they lay down the basic SEO foundation for a WordPress site, but every blog is different and nothing works best for everyone.

    I always suggest looking at a side-by-side comparison of the best seo plugins for WordPress in order to make an informed decision of what the best plugin is for that blogger and their website’s specific needs.
