Over the next few weeks we will be releasing our Top WordPress Plugins based on a specific requirement. Today we discuss the best SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) Plugins available on WordPress. If you think there are better Plugins our there, leave us a comment below and we will suss them out!
- Yoast SEO – Simply the BEST SEO plugin for WordPress users, and with an easy to use interface, walk-through guides, and paid extensions such as the Video SEO, Local SEO, and WooCommerce SEO (for those ecommerce fanatics!) it really is the bees knees! With this handy little tool, you won’t even need our next Plugin!
- Google XML Sitemaps – A great plugin for creating those must needed XML Sitemaps, enabling search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask.com to get a better reading of your site. I know we said that you won’t require this if you have Yoast SEO, however if I were you I would use both! Simply disable the Yoast Sitemap tool and take advantage of the increased functionality with Google XML Sitemaps.
- All in One SEO – We have used both All in One SEO and Yoast SEO, and Yoast wins hands down. However if you are not a fan of Yoast, check this tool out as it will do exactly the same, offering functionality such as XML Sitemap Support, Google Analytics Support, Automatic Meta Tags and more. Just don’t use both!
Please be sure to leave your comments below. Which ones do you use, and which ones do you prefer?
