All in one SEO pack plug-in helps you to easily edit and control the Title, Meta description, and Meta keywords for each post you write.

The plug-in automatically notifies all major search engines every time you create a new post. You can either choose to write a normal XML file or a zipped file. In case of any errors, you can rebuild the sitemap manually.
