Hello everyone,

I hope you all are doing well.

1. Is it easy to switch from AIO to Yoast?
2. Is it easy to switch back to AIO from Yoast in case I decided I liked it more?

I appreciate your help in advance. And below is my explanation of why I am into this now.

I am currently in the SEO training outside of the WA and the trainer recommends the YOAST SEO plugin. I liked the way he explained it, and it seems very good to me, when comes to my website optimization.

I tried to find training here, or at least recommendations, and couldn't find anything recent, they are all mostly from 4 years ago and more.

In a live chat, people say it's a matter of personal preference. I can't have any preference at this moment as I haven't learned a lot about AIO and for some features, they ask for the premium sign up and I am not into that right now.

Thanks, everybody,
Sunny

Hi, Sunny,I've tried both and it's Yoast for me. I've personally never had any problems with it.

It lists the points which you can do to improve your SEO for any particular page or post.(see Image 1), and how to improve readability, which can also help to improve your SEO..

If your not sure how to validate your site with Google and Bing, Yoast can do that for you, although I prefer to validate my sites manually. Hope this . Best wishes.

Thanks a lot for your testimonial. I am on the edge. I think I will finish my bootcamp and SEO course first and then switch so I give the AIO enough time. Though I’m pretty worried why my pages are not on Google just yet.

Truly remarkable.
One can easily fix post problem like you mentioned.
In one of my initial website, I got denied After applying for Google Adsense saying I violet policies.
I have looked everywhere but couldn’t find where.
I suppose Yoast plugin would have help in this case. Right?
Do you get this info with the free Yoast or premium?
Thanks.

Hi, Benson, not sure about Google Adsense, I've never used it. What you see in the screenshot is available on the free Yoast plugin, which I use. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

I have used Yoast SEO before and I deactivated it and removed. It is nice that the Yoast plug-in tells you every detail on what is wrong with your sentences and also you have more than150 words per paragraph and a lot of other things. I got tired of it and just use AIO and it's working fine. My articles have been being indexed fine.

Thanks Sophie.
My articles got me worried. Due to some personal reasons I haven’t published any articles in a while but during the course of 2 months I was quite accurate. And my pages haven’t got indexed just yet. Only the first one About Me page.
Actually how can I check that? I assume they were not indexed since I didn’t receive any emails from the WA m about that.

If you log into Google Search Console, you can find out, assuming you submit XML Sitemap. I learned this only recently. I have 3 new articles published and they have not been indexed. According search console one article is way over 1,000 words. The other 2 are fine and found no errors. So I fixed the article that is over 1,000 words and tried to refine to reduce the words. So I am waiting to receive a notification of being indexed. I have 2 articles indexed last August. Sometimes Google takes a while but if you are signed up with Google Search Console, you can check when your site was crawled in by Google.

Hope the above helps.

My 2 cents, when starting out with a fairly new website (under a year) I suggest you stick with AIO. Later down the road you can switch but I agree with Diane. Rank Math is shady. AIO will do everything you need to rank and get noticed.

Kyle only mentioned using AIO SEO Pack rather than Yoast, so I am stuck with AIO SEO PACK as part of WA Founder Kyle's training.

You can switch if you want to, but I have heard that switching from Yoast to AIO SEO Pack cost 1 member his entire website. He messed around with coding I think. Switching to yoast seo from all in one seo was a bad idea? I am fully aware that some of you are using the Yoast SEO Plugin and I hope that the Methods I outline here can help aid you in getting your Website Verified through Google Search Console which was formerly known as Google WebMaster Tools and Bing WebMaster Tools as well.

However, I used All in One SEO Plugin because it wouldn’t slow down my Website like Yoast SEO Plugin.

I am not sure why you want to switch to Yoast. AIO is working great for me and many of us here. I would recommend you to move on and start publishing.

Hi,
Everyone had well spoken.
I might be wrong, but I think what you posted seems to be more of a training of how to switch from Yoast plugin to AIO without messing up you website.
Or for those whose website came with AIO due to buying domain at WA.
Anyway, if you asking which is better, then the both system are effective just like Diane said, you can only benefit from Yoast if you have the basic knowledge of SEO.
I have friends that build their business websites using Yoast and love it just like Jim said.
I agreed that newbies should stick to the AIO basic package that comes with your website here at WA until you have the proper knowledge to make either using Yoast or AIO pro package.

It was a thought since I got involved with some pure SEO Training, they recommend Yoast.

Yes, one question was regarding what’s better, and the other one is it safe to switch in case the YOAST picked up all the votes.

If it’s not broken, why do you want to fix it? The problem of trying to reinvent the wheel especially if you are not Einstein most certainly leads to disaster.
I basically said it all depends on the benefits which can only be determined by individual knowledge of how SEO works and what they truly looking for.
So, I won’t recommend switching from Yoast to AIO if is not affecting you website just because you’re hosting it at WA or from AIO to Yoast just because some influencers said do so.

You will find many different opinions on this Sunny. I use Yoast on all my websites, but I have never found a reason to switch back. Jim

That’s what confused me the most. In the pure SEO training the coach recommends YOAST and it’s not an affiliate trick. He just recommended it and talked about it.
