    Nice Article Gloria. However, there is one plugin which I think should have been included here, SEO Ultimate. It has everthing that All in One SEO has, infact it also supports Robot Tags, Open Graphs and Indexing.

    Just a suggestion :)

    Really nice collection, I’m using Yoast for myself, it’s definitely no.1 of all.

    WordPress SEO can build xml sitemap files so if you use this plugin then you would not need to install Google XML sitemaps.

    Also recommend Redirection as well. Very helpful for fixing broken links that may appear on a site.
