The most useful WordPress plugin ever?

HeadSpace2 is one powerful plugin. I upgraded recently to WordPress 2.3 and instantaneously lost the tag functionality I had been used to. The very next day I found HeadSpace2, which plugs your tags into the meta keywords and allows you to set meta descriptions both sitewide and on a per-post basis. It also comes with tag suggest functionality that I found useful in Ultimate Tag Warrior.

HeadSpace is a powerful all-in-one plugin to manage meta-data and handle a wide range of SEO tasks. With it you can tag your posts, create custom titles and descriptions that improve your page ranking, change the theme or run disabled plugins on specific pages, and a whole lot more.

    Thank you for posting this, Casey. Am trying it out now.

    I like it so far, if what the video shows is truly what it does.

  2. casey says:

    That is, indeed, what it does. In fact, as soon as you activate it your tags will appear in your meta keywords in your header. I love it! I added a meta description as well for extra SEO.

    Ooh, I love it!

    I am combining it with All-In-One SEO Pack which I have been using for a good while now.

    It looks like the features overlap. Is there something additional that can be done with the AIO SEO Pack that can’t be done with HeadSpace?

  5. Sicarii says:

    You’re correct, they overlap actually.

    I think I’ll remove one of them but I will have to decide which because AIO has served me pretty well so far.

    Weird thing is my widgets got torn out after I did some ‘optimizing’ with Headspace, argh! :(

  6. Sicarii says:

    Guess I will remove AIO for the time being, have to head out soon to shop for a Bible for my wife. :)

    God bless, brother.

    Shabbat Shalom.

    Oh, no! I hope you get the widgets fixed. HeadSpace is a little overwhelming. I still haven’t figured out all the settings yet.

    Thanks for letting us know about this plug in. I have been wanting to add tags, but all I can use right now is categories.

  9. Casey,

    Did you have to create a title for each page? I installed this and tried to import my UTW tags, but they didn’t seem to import and it didn’t seem to automatically create page titles.

    I also do not see any tags for this page.

    Hi Richard,

    If you want a different title for each page you’ll have to create one. There are dynamic variables to let you do it automatically, too. When I imported the UTW tags I was shown statistics on how many were imported. If it didn’t work, you can try it again. It isn’t supposed to allow duplicates, so you should be fine. The tags show up in the header automatically, but you have to create a description manually. My header is quite cluttered, so you have to dig through it to find the tags. They’re under the Bad Behavior code.
