Why the Yoast SEO Plugin?
There are a few different reasons why I recommend using the Yoast SEO plugin.
From personal experience, I have noticed a HUGE difference in my sites rankings after installing and using the plugin (over on letsbuildwp.com).
If you Google something like “best WordPress SEO plugin”. Nearly everyone is saying to use Yoast (okay some people mention “All in One SEO Pack”).
Just look at the official ratings on WordPress.org, it has an almost solid 5 star review!
Hopefully you’re starting to see where I’m coming from. The Yoast SEO plugin is almost unrivalled in my opinion.
