What plugins do you add to WordPress installs for better SEO? Use the comments to let me know what’s missing from the list. (this list is old as dirt. Ignore it, please)
- Platinum SEO Pack – It does auto 301 redirects, canonical URLs and plenty more.
- Google xml sitemaps – Creates your sitemap.xml and updates it automatically. (Does not work with WP 3.0 multisite feature.)
- nofollow post – Allows you to link to sites from your WordPress blog with rel=nofollow
- All in One Webmaster – All of your Google Webmaster Tools, Yahoo SiteExplorer and Bing Webmaster Central needs addressed in one plugin.
- WP Supercache – Because speed matters, and WordPress can be a little heavy on the server resources, you need this plugin to make static post pages use fewer (if any) db calls.
- Zemanta – Suggests tags, images, links and more to add spruce (and SEO juice) to your blog posts.

What do you think? Are there better plugins for WordPress SEO? Got any advice to help me count better? (I think there might be more than five SEO plugins in that list!)

FYI – this post is showing its age. E.g. I prefer Yoast’s SEO plugin now. Always note the age of the blog post you’re reading when you’re researching SEO stuff.
