    It's useful for on-page SEO but you still need to do off-page SEO.

    Why do you say that? Personally I don't use Yoast, I use the All In One SEO Plugin.

    Could you please explain why? Because I'm currently deciding whether to buy its premium subscription or not. I've been using it for a couple of months and it seemed to do the job.

    Yoast often makes the pages over optimized and unnecessarily flood everything with keywords. And not to mention the recent versions of Yoast are hazardous with other plugins of Wordpress.

    I use it free. It takes me almost as long to fill in the blanks and do a checklist as it does to write a small article.:D
    I guess it is good for communicating certain things to Google's index.

    Yoast is best for on-site optimization and its a free plugin.

    Exactly! I am completely agree with it. This is the reason I have uninstall yoast completely from my WordPress Blog.

    Can you suggest any other plugins, sort of all-in-one?

    Go for 'All in One SEO Pack'. This plugin may be look simple and has no fancy visual touches like Yoast. But it gets the job done and also this plugin will never master you around saying where to put keywords or not.
