What SEO plugin do you use for your WordPress Blog?

If you are running a WordPress blog, then it is unlikely that you are not using one. And, if you aren’t using one, then you need to start right away.

SEO plugins top the list of essential plugins for a WordPress blog. These plugins add all the essential tags that are required from an SEO standpoint so that you blogs rank on the first page of Google. Some of the latest plugins even add all the required Open graph meta data from a Social Media standpoint. And the importance of Social Media is not an unknown fact.

If you already have an SEO plugin installed, I am sure your answer to the question above could be one of the below:

  1. Yoast SEO
  2. SEO Pressor
  3. All in One SEO
  4. Platinum SEO

If you are using any other plugin, then it will be a good thing for all of us to know about it. You can comment below and let us know about it.

Of the above plugins, Yoast SEO is one of the most widely used ones. This plugin is in fact one of the most advanced SEO plugins and best of all it is free. But a lot of WordPress owners struggle with setting it up and configuring it.

While the last 2, All in One SEO and Platinum SEO plugins are pretty much outdated now, they can still be helpful from an SEO standpoint. If you are running any of these 2 plugins and want to switch to Yoast SEO, you can do that pretty easily using the import option in Yoast SEO.

SEOPressor is a premium plugin and is advised if you want some advanced SEO features.
