Peoples opinions may change for preferred plugins to them, getting few that can work together in conjunction with each other can make SEO really simple.

This allows you to easily add SEO titles, keywords and descriptions to the targeted page! Fantastic and easy.
There is an extremely large and broad range of plugins for almost everything that you will need in a WordPress site, even to add an analytical code you can use the “header and footer” plugin, and of course you can do it the normal way through the page editor.
