5 Best WordPress SEO Plugins Which You Must Try On Your Blog

There are so many good content management systems like Joomla, Drupal, ocPortal etc, but still majority of the websites and blogs(approx 95 million as on Feb 2016) in the world are powered by WordPress. That’s a huge number of websites. But do you know the main reason behind it? Why WordPress is world best CMS?

Answer is very simple. WordPress is Super SEO Friendly. No one can beat it,when it comes to Search Engine Optimization. WordPress uses well written codes & Google just love it. But this does not mean that by just installing WordPress on your blog you will be ranking high in search engines. If you want to get organic traffic & want to rank well in search engines then you will have to install good quality SEO Plugins on your blog.

Without wasting any time lets have a look at 5 best SEO Plugins for WordPress which You Can Install On Your Blog:

I have personally used all these plugins on my blogs & client websites and would recommend you do the same.

Features: You can set Post Title,Meta Descriptions,Permalinks,Breadcrumbs,Canonical Url,XML Sitemaps and much more on your blog. If you want to make your blog social media friendly then you can even add Facebook Open Graph and Twitter MetaData. If you are using All-In-One SEO or HeadSpace2 SEO Plugin on your blog then with the help of Import Function you can move your SEO data(Meta title and description) into this plugin.

In addition, it previews how your content will look in search engines, controls which pages from your site go to search engines, allows you to control indexing of categories and archives, and so much more.You can even edit your robots.txt and .htaccess file with WP Yoast. With the help of Flesch Reading Ease scale you can check whither your post is easy to read or not.

As compared to other  WordPress SEO plugins “WordPress SEO By Yoast” is little complicated but still I Would highly Recommended this to every WordPress blog owner.

Features: With the help of this plugin you can avoid duplicate content,optimise post tiles for search engines & can generate meta tags automatically.This plugin also enables you to manually include META tags (title, description and keywords) for each page and post in your web site.You can also add canonical urls, XML Sitemaps & Google Analytics with the help of this plugin.

SEOPressor Plugin,best seo plugins for wordpress,best seo plugin for wordpress 2014

Features Of SEOPressor:

  • Over optimization check
  • On Page SEO & Multiple LSI keyword analysis
  • Check Keyword Density
  • Social SEO Integration
  • Rich snippets
  • Smart linking
  • Automatic Smart Linking

You can use SEOPressor with WordPress Yoast. Use Yoast for adding Meta Titles &  Meta Descirption & SEOPressor for adding keywords,rich snippets  & other on page work.

The sad part about this plugin is that it is a Premium plugin($47) which means that not everyone can afford it. But if are not happy with AIO SEO & WP Yoast and are thinking to hire SEO Expert for doing on site work then please don’t invest your money on hiring so-called SEO expert instead invest your money on SEOPressor.

  • Bisakha Ray says:

    thanks for providing this useful information i am using WP Yoast & XML Sitemap and now installed SEO Friendly Images on your advise,

    Very informative

  • Great post, WordPress is one of the best platforms and is far better than any other for SEO. I agree with you that images are important factors to optimise and that alt tags need to be done properly, otherwise there won’t be traffic as you would expect. I will surely try the “SEO Friendly Images” plugin, I think it will be helpful for images, I will check and use this if it gives a better result.
    Thank you for your suggestion.

  • Plugins are the real life saver in WordPress. Yoast SEO is one of such awesome plugin without which I can’t imagine blogging. Even though they lost a little bit of their trust due to the bug, but I am still with them.
