My Favorite SEO Plugin

Last Update: July 23, 2018

There are so many things to consider when writing a blogpost. Is it going to be SEO friendly, for one thing. So many considerations go into becoming SEO friendly, especially if you're new to blogging.

I posted a comment on a fellow WA member's blog and it occurred to me that I should say a little something about it on my own WA blog!

Focus keywords, readability, meta descriptions, internal links, outbound links, etc., etc.

I use the Yoast SEO plugin - the free version - and I don't know what I'd do without it! It evaluates my writing and tells me where the problems, what improvements I've made and what I've done right!

I'm attaching two of the analyses on one of my posts so you can see what I'm talking about.

The first is a Readability analysis.



The second analysis is on the keyword use.

I am NOT an affiliate of Yoast. Not sure if they even have affiliates - probably should check that out!

Thanks for reading. I hope you find this useful.

Yes, is a good guide to follow, but still do not agree with their keywords in images and sub-headings. 9 and above are good scores. Thank you for sharing this with us.

It's just such a good resource. I don't always follow their suggestions but most of them are exactly what I need. Thank you for the feedback!

I couldn't do without it now. So user friendly. No, they don't have an affiliate program for the time being. I suppose that they are popular that they don't need one.

Best wishes Cheryl.

I 've got to agree wit this I use Yoast, having switched from AlliNone and its is good, its certainly is more up to speed than AlliNOne

Before anyone starts panicking about should they swap from one to the other, I wrote a blog post on my main WA blog, on my profile which explains the difference between the two and advises which you should use accordingly, as there are not right or wrong reasons for using either

I agree. I actually have both even though I believe you said you only need one. But AllinOne helped me figure out a problem I was having with no-index errors so I've still got it as a plugin.

the problem with having more than one SEO plugin is that they often Conflict.. So choose one or the other
