If you want to aerate--no need to go deep when you are trying to establish seed. One-inch deep is just fine for seed, but you need more holes, so go over it two or three times.

Apply seed before or after aerating. Seed first results in a few seeds cut in half by the tines, but more of the core soil lands on top of the seeds. Aerate and seed second results in more of the seed falling into into the bare soil in the holes. Most aeration only results in about 16 holes per sqft. Double or triple pass gives a lot more. Drag it afterwards to mix the seed and soil together.
Everything he sAid, we seed before in front of the z plugger and after shooting into the previous pass spreading wider than the unit 50 percent overlap . I wouldn't drag and we use a garden weasel in the corners
