You talking about SEO? If so, it's already built in. You don't need a plugin for it.
ACP -> HOME -> OPTIONS -> Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Yes, but I would like to add site title, description and keywords of my site.

I found this while searching the forum: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/where-do-i-change-the-title-of-my-forum.5532/#post-84736

Would like to know if there is an option to add keywords without adding the codes in templates?
You mean built in for keywords.. nope, not as far as I know
You want keywords, then it's called the template edit. :p
You already set the Site Title and meta description in the board settings (hopefully).

This is from 2009, but I think it pretty much still applies

In a nutshell (from my understanding) they quit using keywords because folks were stuffing them with phrases that had nothing to do with their site, but that they hoped would get them up in the google search ranks (like using Harley Davidson on a basket weaving site).

I see.. Yeah, am already aware that Google does not use keywords anymore, just want to add mine if there's an easy option. Thanks!

Template edit is all (and it would be overwritten unless you use TMS), and basically useless to do since it is not actually used by visitors.

Hi, is there an option in xen to add site title, description and keywords for on-page optimization? Same thing as wordpress.
Every time I update my template my site title changes back to original. Would have been awesome if we could modify the title for the main page without editing templates. :) I am not sure but I think WP allows it.
