Sorry for noob question. I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips on the best wordpress plugins for making sure my sites are SEO ready? I’m looking for something that will allow me to put my meta tags etc in easily? I have a little bit of money if the plugin is cheap enough. Thanks!
Check out “All In One SEO Pack”
Thanks a lot. Will check that out.
also don’t forget to use plugins that helps to create robots.txt and sitemap.xml files.
Why? What possible benefit to SEO is there from asking robots to ignore parts of your website?
because it helps robots faster to check your site page, so for this you can get some credit from google.
That better is too have robots.txt file even if you let index all your pages, Matt Cutts confirmed on his webmaster video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7GY1fE5JQQ
Excellent plugin and is THE FIRST plugin I install on any new WordPress site. A couple of other good ones that can help with some SEO are:
Google XML Sitemaps
WP Keyword Link (automatically links words in your posts to wherever you want them to go)
Contextual Related Posts (helps with interlinking your content…and good for keeping visitors on site)
RSS Footer (lets you put links in your RSS feed)
