Implementing All in One SEO Pack
I've added the All in One SEO Pack plugin to my blog in hopes that it will help with SEO. This plugin allows you to rewrite the title tag for your posts, automagically add a meta description, change the title/description/keywords for your blog home page and use noindex for archives and categories (helps with duplicate content issues). This plugin superseded the Duplicate Content Cure plugin that I was using so I shut that off. Having an all-in-one seo plugin like this should really help with the management of the blog since it makes it easier to make global changes for quite a few settings. Thanks to John Chow for posting this plugin on his blog!
I was thinking that this would be a good time to share the current plugins that I use. Here they are, straight from my plugins page:
