    I did a lot of research before installing WordPress SEO over Yoast. What’s the advantage? I also have Google XML sitemaps installed. I should mention that I haven’t customised anything yet so no settings to lose.

    I thought I was pretty good at SEO, but Yoast has shown me loads of stuff I wasn’t doing before, even if sometimes it does feel like a little dictator in the computer! I’ve noticed I’m higher up the first page of Google for ‘work from home’ and I’m getting more referrals. If I can cope with it, anyone can :-)

    Being a newbie I love the fact that it’s free, if it has a positive effect and brings in good results as you recommended then i’m laughing.

    Seo plugin by Yoast it’s a great plugin that have a lot of options. This can be really helpful for optimization. Also, platinium plugin is an excellent alternative to Yoast. Thanks for this info. Interesting article.

    Yoast has created a plugin that is so user friendly its crazy! You can know absolutely nothing about SEO but if you use that All in One SEO plugin you’ll have the basics of on-page optimization down pat in no time!

      It’s a great guide Trent although occasionally irritating when you just can’t see a way of getting enough keyword density! However as the search engines get better, alternative key phrases are getting more important. So it’s useful to get a Thesaurus out for alternatives or see what related terms you can find in Google Insights.

    myself currently using yoast wp seo plugin, and find it really great. previously using All in one Seo which also works great but that does not let you tweak the post title and search engine description as yoast can.

    I use the All In One plugin, which works very well. Does Yoast’s plugin make that much of a difference when it comes to Google rankings? Does anybody who’s used both plugins have an opinion about this?

    I think that all in one seo pack is much better and is easier to use!Personally I’ve tried both but I rank in search easier with all in one seo pack!

      That’s interesting to hear. I agree All in One SEO Pack is the easier option. WP SEO works for me in some very competitive markets such as work from home and leadership niches. Thanks for sharing that point. I’d be interested in what other bloggers experience is to see if there is a case for moving back to All in One SEO.

    It is a very good plugin. However, i would recommend Platinum seo pack as an alternative.

    • Andy Britnell
      June 29, 2013

      Yes Marc that’s one I haven’t mentioned as it hasn’t been updated in the last 2 years and could possibly have compatibility issues with newer updates of WordPress. Although it’s been downloaded by over 840,000 people I think this one has had its day unless your running your blog on an old WP version and are happy with that. Appreciate you bringing that possibility up though to add to the conversation.

      Best wishes

    It’s a top free plugin that is just as good (and some say better) than premium plugins you have to dig in your pocket for!

    Thanks Trinity
