SEO plugins for WordPress

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked “what’s the best SEO plugin for WordPress?” My immediate reply (trying to keep the look of exasperation off my face) is to ask, “in terms of what?” Think of it this way, what if someone asked you what’s the best car or best place to live? For me these questions are impossible to answer without some guidelines. What makes a car the best car or some place the best place?! Define that and then I can answer. So I’m going to tell you what would make a great SEO plugin for me. It’s less than you might think.
