There are a lot of SEO plugins but all of them put a lot of stress not on the way our WP is running - they have a lot useless features and thus very often tend to corrupt. Simple SEO Improvements plugin has all essential that such a plugin needs to have - and simultaneously do not make our WP unstable. IMHO it is the must choice for everybody that really wants to have light WP that runs stable.
