I was hoping the experts here could give me some insight into the best SEO plugin to use.
When I first started working online I used Yoast. This wasn't because I knew anything about it, or thought it was the best. I was told to install Yoast to SEO my website so that is what I did. At the time I wasn't even aware of how plugins worked and that there are loads to choose from.
I did however really enjoy it and it helped me learn the basics of SEO. I enjoyed the checklist and had lots of fun trying to write quality content that got the all clear green!
However I learned later on that there is a lot more to SEO than what the Yoast checklist goes through. A good example is that you only need 500 words in a post for the checklist to be green. I now write minimum 1000 word posts and aim for much more if possible.
My web developers disabled Yoast because it was conflicting with something and causing issues. I can't explain more because when it comes to technical stuff like that my brain turns off. It was explained to me though....
It was then recommended to me to use All in One SEO which appears to be working nicely. I am ranking and getting traffic... so great.
