    Just wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on Wordpress SEO plugins.  I'm trying to choose between Yoast's new Wordpress seo plugin and the tried and true All in One Plug in.  I'm using Wordpress 3.1 with the Twenty Ten theme.  Bottom line, I don't want to do anything to hose my theme's functionality. 

    I'm leaning towards Yoast's since it's such an all-encompassing SEO plug-in.  But, I'm worried since it's fairly new (in fact I'm not even sure it's out of beta yet).

    Anyway, anyone have any experience with either of these?  Any words of wisdom or cautions I should be aware of?

      All-In-One SEO plugin works better for me.

      Both work.  We switched to Yoast due to the prompting process to remind you of proper formatting.

      I almost did not install Yoast WPSEO because the top page of google there is a blog which says it crashes your site - but I finally got the nerve to install it and it is wonderful! Yoast's WP SEO points you in the right direction to create good content in the proper format so that you dont get penalized for some robotic nerdy stuff you were supposed to know but were at the beach that day.

    Thanks, Ryan and Garrett.  Two votes for All in One, I guess. 

    No Yoast users?  Really?

      I changed from All in one to Yoast, Yoast has the ability to check whether your keywords has been optimized on your post, all in SEO do not have this feature

    I use all in one. I uploaded both and tried them both - decided all in one works the best for me.

    I ran Yoast for a short period of time, but there always seemed to be a bug. Froze my site twice.

    Thanks, Marye and Ken!  The buggy, freezing thing is exactly what I fear.  I try to keep plugins down to a minimum for that reason.  I've read all good things about All in One, but I've heard others complain about Yoast.  I was kinda hoping the kinks were worked out.  hmm

    All in one is best, easy to use and it works pretty well

    I actually use Ultimate SEO most of the time. Its pretty straight forward to use as all the different sections are broken down into modules. I find AIO a bit annoying as it constantly needs updating!

    I wanted to try All In One, but the details page says it still hasn't been tested with my version of WP (3.1). In the meantime, SEO Ultimate has been working pretty well for me.

        I too recommend you "all in one"

    Haven't used either. I just use the StudioPress Genesis Framework with a Child Theme to compliment. By far the best SEO set up I've come across.

    I prefer yoast, it is actually more comprehensive than All-in one, although it requires a little more effort in the inital setup. I haven't personally had (or heard about) any major bugs with Yoast, however since that company is fairly profitable and has a large development team, I assume any reported bugs would be squashed pretty quickly.

    It also gives my users on This is Freelance a preview of how their article will appear on the Google search results, which in my eyes is an invaluable bonus, It really highlights how important custom meta descriptions and titles can sometimes be.

    All in one seo plugin is good if you are a beginner to wordpress seo and if you want more advanced features then yoast is the best bet to go for.

    Yoast is compatible with all the versions of wordpress that are releasing now.

    All-in-one works fine for me. Its extremely easy to setup and use. I chose it over the yoast (which appears to be first on the list of results for seo if you search from wp dashboard), because 2-3 books had rated AIO as a very good option.

    I guess there are other plugins that people can use but these are the ones being mentioned here so I guess I would chose all in one.

    All in one works great for me smile I use it in conjunction with SEOPressor which is a paid plugin but really helps with rankings. Pretty sure there are some free versions of it around though.
