Filed in the "I hate SEO plugins" category (why), and tagged as "but some are better than others", there's an article on Urban Giraffe that gives a comparison of WordPress SEO Plugins.

The article is factual and tends to prove that HeadSpace is the most comprehensive and featured pack plugin, particularly compared with All In One SEO, more famous and obviously better in one topic: naming. "All in One SEO" sounds like a riot, when you don't get at first what "HeadSpace" is about.

    I did ask Michael what the difference was between Headspace and AIO SEO and why one might choose one over the other. His description in a nutshell was that AIO is simpler to use and for the most part, will get the job done without user intervention. With Headspace, you get every SEO feature known to man making it a more complex plugin to use by default.

    Just for giggles, I don't use any SEO plugins on heh

    Just enabling Pretty Permalinks is really all you need to do, although I can see the advantage of blocking pages like category/month archives. Stuff other than that (ex: stuff like meta tags) I find totally pointless.

    To clarify: I don't run any SEO plugins myself. I'd rather a user hit my site via a duplicate content page than not at all.

    I've always maintained that if you publish quality content and tell a few people about it then it will get found, it will get linked, and you will get the Google juice.

    Too many so called SEO experts focus too much on the tiniest details of SEO when they should really step back and look at the wider picture. Is the content quality and is the content of value? If the answer is no then you've got an uphill battle.

  5. Well, I agree that superb content is the KEY element…. but if some websites all have superb content…. it comes down to these three factors:
    – CMS details
    – quality of websites that link to you
    – in which context your website is mentioned (and/or linked)
