I noticed through all the training finally that I didn't have YOAST SEO. I finally realized why I can't make a focus key work. I downloaded YOAST SEO however, it said it may cause problems with XML sitemaps. What confuses me is that in the training he said specifically he likes the xml sitemap seperate. Is this really going to cause a problem for me? What should I do?

Yoast does cause problems with XML sitemaps, but does a lot of the heavy lifting for you. I had YOAST until recently, but reverted back to AllInOne SEO, simply because, I was finding that through the Traffic Light SEO system YOAST uses is alright, it was slowing down my productivity, trying to work out what was better to use in terms of words

That is an entirely personal preference, and not a slight against YOAST at all.

Okay, what I don;t understand about All in One SEO is why there is no option for a focus key word. this really bothers me.

I have xml site maps as well. Should I delete the site maps or deactivate it if I want to use YOAST?

If this helps, I don't worry about the focus keyword as such, because i type the phrase I want to post about into Google, then research it in Jaaxy, then choose my phrase from there

Once thats done I submit to Google using the fetch as google and my posts get indexed fairly quickly.

You can still do your sitemaps, but without using YOAST.

also, would it hurt to use my focus keyword with yoast and then put my other keywords into the all in one seo?
Because the problem that came up for me was about site maps. It didn't say anything about the all in one seo
