There is NO Out-of-box feature, there are couple ways to do it

Mandatory Step :

-> Create a custom Page Content Type with desired meta fields (author, keywords , description...etc) -> Make sure to use the the content type created for all the pages

Option 1 (Delegate) :

-> Create a delegate control to read these fields and add to the HEAD tag. ( use the PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead )


Option 2 (add Fields) :

pages fields can also be added, follow this article Custom SEO


Don't forget to use sub sites properly build your urls to different pages. You most likely will not want to add all of your site pages into one pages library, rather use sub pages to help build good, SEO frienly url's to each page.
