    I recently went back to all in one SEO. It has been updated recently and pretty similar now. Yoast gives me a huge headache. I still very much prefer his work in the Magento space though. That guy is a stud.

    Yes, IMO. All in one SEO is also good.

    For me the winner is still YOAST, why?

    1.) Noindex subpages of archives - Very useful feature offered by YOAST
    2.) Open Graph Meta Tags - It makes your post content more presentable and clickable on social networking sites.
    3.) Google Authorship Management - Easy configuration of Google+ Authorship compare to others.
    4.) Permalink Tweaks - Offers genuine and useful URL/Permalink tweaks.
    5.) Breadcrumbs - no brainer to setup breadcrumbs.

    All in all YOAST offers the most simple user-interface yet its features are simply too good to ignore.

    I personally like SEO Ultimate but the YOAST Plugin is pretty good and I would also say that it is amongst the best SEO Plugins for WordPress Sites

    :cool:

    Both are great plugins, they pretty much have the same functions. I have used both, but currently I'm using All in One SEO. I think you should go with whatever seems more convenient. If one of the plugin is giving you a headache or hard time, switch to the other.

    Hi @Nigel Lew I know why you are saying that it is a headache. Is the main reason the "green" dot we all are looking for in Yoast. May I know the name of the guy. and can you elaborate on Magento space? Cheers! :)

    What in particular you liked in All in One SEO ? is there any thing specific? Did it helped your web pages to rank well in Google? And what is IMO. Thanks! :)

    Wow I was unaware of some of the features which you just mentioned. Did you leveraged Yoast on your website for high productivity??

    Never heard of SEO Ultimate! will like to know more about it! :)

    Good! Even I use it. But still I want to know is it the best among the lot? :)

    Nice suggestion. But you now kept in into two minds. Anyways thanks for the feedback! :)

    What specifically you liked in All in One SEO plugin??

    same here. But there might be some better alternatives. I don`t know. :)

    Open question to all:
    Which is the best plugin which will help to rank your web pages higher in Google ?

    Basically, the WordPress SEO plugin is good enough to use on your WordPress site. It's in case you need a free SEO plugin for WordPress. It's a great choice because the plugin is extremely feature-rich and covers most of your on-page SEO needs when it comes to WordPress. As a matter of fact, you need to focus more on link building rather than a WordPress SEO plugin if you want to rank higher in Google. Creating in-depth and useful guest posts and creating awesome content on your own site will do the trick in the long run.

    Hi Technary,

    Besides YOAST, i also use RB Internal Links. There's more on this article, but I have yet to try it all. It has basically the top plugins with elements that help in SEO.

    I'm using Yoast Wordpress SEO. So far, so good. Didn't have any problem once it setted up finally.

    ok. any particlular good websites which accept guest posts?

    Thanks a lot @Lightsaber I will surely research about the RB Interlinks. I will read your article and will give you a feedback for sure! :)

    Hi @Nigel Lew will see what all this yoast guy did. Thanks a lot for the link! :)

    Can you give me more insights. How you used it? and what all measures you planned to make it useful .2 weeks a long time bro. Still tell me how you used it? Any particular tips and tricks to do so?

    Even I do not have any problems. But is it effective?

    YOAST makes you do all the necessary things for the so called "Green" Signal! :)

    I have not used All in One, so the other experts might give you the right answer! :)

    Good. Any more tips you can give to make the most out of this Yoast Plugin?
