Nice! Just what I was looking for.

So tired of the complexity of so many plugins! Simple SEO was exactly what I was looking for; something to quickly and easily allow me to add META tags (i.e. Title, Description, and Keywords) to pages in my WordPress build. I tested the plugin by looking at the code after entering meta-data and it was flawless. I'm up and running in literally one minute after install. Thank you for keeping it simple, stupid (KISS). Got the job done without all the extra BS.
