(This is a genuine experiment and is still ongoing. You need to read it all and not skip to the bottom first!) I have always been a great believer in the Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin and have been using it for years, so why on earth would I be writing a page on my website […]
Yoast SEO Plugin
Yoast SEO Plugin
The articles in this section are all about my experiences in using the Yoast SEO plugin.
What is the Yoast SEO Plugin?
The one word answer is "great" in my experience.
There are plenty of other Wordpress plugins that you can use that will help you with optimising your Posts and Pages for the search engines.
However, I have honestly found the Yoast SEO plugin to be very helpful.
Why else would you be reading this, other than you found it on the search engines. Point proved!
Other SEO Plugins
If you do not believe me, then by all means try the other seo plugins like All in One SEO Pack, SEO Ultimate, SEO by Squirrly, etc.
However, I think you might be going full circle and coming back to the Yoast SEO plugin in the end and you will have wasted valuable ranking time in the search engines too.
Is the Yoast SEO Plugin Perfect?
It is good, but in my opinion it is not perfect and I list the things you need to correct in this website for your consideration.
There is no point me repeating how to set up all the settings in the Yoast SEO plugin as there are many, many websites that list this, but no be careful, as some websites show incorrect settings that will harm your SEO rankings if you set it up wrongly.
Always use the settings that the plugin developer and maintainer suggest, as they are the ones that built it and they know what they are doing!
I do praise when praise is due, but I will also point out anything that I feel may be detrimental and you can read those articles in this section of the website.
Follow the guidance closely on this website and change your setup appropriately, as I always explain why I make changes or do things the way I do them, then you can decide if you agree with my take on it or not.
Again, my reason for this website is to help you get to the best SEO setup for your website as quick as possible and to learn from my mistakes (or should that be my learning curve).
