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

Friends you know that more than 90 Million websites in the world are powered by WordPress. Day by day WordPress is becoming popular among bloggers .But do you know the main reason behind it? Why WordPress is world best CMS?

WordPress is best CMS because no one can beat it in SEO.WP 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.

I have personally used all these plugins on my blog & would recommend you do the same.

Without wasting any time lets have a look at 5 Best WordPress SEO Plugins Which You Can Install On Your Blog

1.WordPress SEO ByYoast

This is my all time favourite plugin and I am currently using it on my blog. This plugin has been created by Joost de Valk and has been downloaded over 7.5 Million times with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5. This clearly shows that it is one of the best Plugin(For Both On-Page & Off-Page SEO) in the market for WordPress. The Best part about this plugin is that it is completely free.

WordPress SEO ByYoast,wordpress seo plugins,best seo plugins,yoast wordpress seo

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 SEO plugins WordPress Yoast is little complicated but still I Would highly Recommended this to every WordPress blog owner.

2. All In One SEO Pack

All In One SEO Pack,All In One SEO Plugin,best seo plugin

All In One SEO Pack is the most popular plugin & has been downloaded most number of times from WordPress Repository. Michael Torbert is the creator of AIO SEO Plugin. If you are new to WordPress or SEO world then this is the plugin which you should install on your blog. For beginners there is no need to change its default settings, just Install it & Activate it.

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.

NOTE: Install Only 1 Plugin Between WP Yoast & All In One SEO.

3.SEOPressor

Daniel Tan is the man behind SEOPressor.More than 150k webmasters are using SEOPressor on their blog which clearly shows that it is one of the most powerful On Page SEO Plugin.It has many features which will help you optimize all of your articles and rank you well in Search Engines.

Features Of SEOPressor:SEOPressor Plugin

  • 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.

4.Google XML Sitemaps

Google XML Sitemaps WordPress plugin,google xml sitemaps plugin,google xml sitemaps
With the help of this plugin you can automatically create XML sitemap on your blog which will help search engines like Google,Yahoo,Bing to better index your blog. I am using this plugin on my blog and it is very fast,easy to use & uses much less resources. Additionally it notifies all major search engines every time you create a post about the new content.

5. SEO Friendly Images

A picture is worth a thousand words,but most of the bloggers just upload pics on their post and do not add correct ALT & Title attributes. As a result they do not get traffic from Images Search Engines especially Google Images. Sometimes Google even penalize websites who do not add proper ALT tages.

If you are one of them then you must install SEO Friendly Images Plugin on your blog. This plugin will automatically add Proper ALT & Title attributes on your images. In this way you will get a good amount of traffic from Google Images.

Bonus: Redirection Plugin

This plugin does exactly what it says. No need to edit your htaccess file.With the help of this plugin you can keep track of 404 errors & handle 301 redirections on your blog. If url of your page/post changes then it will automatically add a 301 redirection,manually you can add 301,302 or 307 redirection.This plugin is very useful if you are changing directory of your blog or migrating your pages/posts in a new website.

That’s It Friends now I want to know from you which SEO plugins are you using on your blog? Which useful SEO Plugin you think I missed in this post? If you find this post helpful then please share it with you friends on social networking websites. Happy New Year In Advance Friends :)!!

  1. Nice post, thanks.
    However, I want to know if what you imply is that all the plugins should be used together.
    If not, which one(s) will you recommend and why.
    Hope to read your response hear soonest.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Oluseys,
      It’s not a good move to use more than one on-page optimization plugin. Installing multiple plugins can have a negative effect on your SEO & blog loading speed.So choose only 1 plugin between Yoast & All In One SEO.

      From this list I would recommend Redirection Plugin & WP Yoast for on site optimsation.You can even add XML Sitemap with the help of Yoast so no need of installing Google XML Sitemap.Install SEO Friendly Images only if you are not adding ALT & Title tags on your images.

      Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. Happy New Year & keep visiting wpseotricks :)

  5. Hi Deepak bro,

    I’m a big fan of Yoast SEO. Free ka maal, but very useful! Earlier, I used All in One SEO. No doubt it is good, but still, Yoast has those added features, which gives it a slight edge over All in One SEO.

    SEOPressor is premium one. I’ve heard lots of good talks about it. But when I asked an experienced blogger about whether I should purchase it or not, he said no! He also gave some specific reasons for it. I mean, the plugin is good, but spending on it, when you have other good resources is not very wise!

    Yes, I use Google XML sitemap plugin. I could have used Yoast SEO’s XML sitemap feature, but still, I prefer this robust plugin. I also use a separate image sitemap on a different blog of mine.

    Regarding image optimization, I do it manually, inserting alt tags and all! Overall, a good article bro! The bonus was handy! :)

    • Hi Arun Bhai,
      There are so many (3) similarities between you & me :P When I was new to WP & SEO World I was also using AIO SEO but after using Yoast I must say that it’s far better than AIO. In Fact I would say that Yoast is the Godfather of all SEO Plugins. There is a future in Yoast to create XML Sitemap but we both are using Google XML Sitemap for creating sitemaps & both of us are manually inserting ALT & Title tags on images.

      SEOPressor is indeed a great On-Site SEO Plugin & many professional bloggers are using it on their blogs. I believe that SEOPressor is for those who are having tough time in Yoast & AIO SEO.I have a nulled version of SEOPressor if you want to give it a try then ping me on FB!!

      Thanks a lot for visiting & sharing your views. Happy New Year to you & your family.

  6. Hi Singh,
    How if I use 2 or more SEO wordpress plugins within themes which is already builtin with SEO metadata like themes I use *thesis, what impact? Is it good or not?

    Thank
    Liem Kevin recently posted…Bagaimana Cara Cepat Mengoptimasikan SEO Website Joomla!?My Profile

    • Hey Liem,

      Just use one SEO plugin bro. That’s all ! And if your theme has SEO options, then no need of plugins! The theme settings will work fine!

      However, if you insist on using an SEO plugin, then switch off the SEO settings of your theme..

      Arun
      Arun Kallarackal recently posted…Edit Jetpack email Subscription Widget and make it look catchyMy Profile

    • Hey Liem,
      As Arun said please use only 1 Plugin. Using multiple SEO plugins can have a negative effect on your SEO & loading speed .

      BTW if you are not happy with your theme built in SEO settings then install Yoast.I am using Genesis Framework & after installing Yoast ,Genesis inbuilt SEO Settings got deactivated automatically.I think Yoast will also deactivate Thesis Framework in built seo settings.

      Thanks for visiting & leaving your comment. Happy New Year!!

  7. A useful post, in my opinion SEOYOAST is the best plugin. This plugin gives you useful and very effective opportunities.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Hi RosSumiati,
      There are so many bloggers like you who want to Install WP Yoast on their blog but they find Yoast little complicated & then they have no choice but to install ALL In One SEO on their blog. Anyway don’t be sad in the upcoming month I would be sharing a complete guide on How To Install WP Yoast Properly.

      Thanks for visiting & leaving your valuable comment.

  11. Thanks Singh for this plugins mentioned here, however, when you recommend them, i know for certain that you have used them.

    However, did you use every single one of them in one blog?
    Isaiah Joe recently posted…Best Adsense Alternative: Chitika ReviewsMy Profile

    • Hi Issiah,
      Yes,In the last 7 months I have used all these plugins on my blog. I just love playing with plugins :P When I was new to WP,I installed All In One SEO but later moved to Yoast. I also used SEOPressor along with Yoast. ATM from this list I am using WP Yoast,Redirection Plugin & Google XML Sitemap.

      Thanks for commenting & visiting wpseotricks. Happy New Year :)

  12. thank for p giving the list of plugin. Now i am using all in one plugin it is really good plugin but i want to know that yoast is better than all in one or not

    • Hey Monu,
      Both Yoast & AIO SEO are best in the businees & I have used both on my blog. When I was new to WP World I was using AIO but after installing WP Yoast properly I can say it has little edge over AIO SEO Pack.

      Keep in touch in the upcoming month I will be sharing complete guide on How To Install WP Yoast properly. Thanks for commenting & Adding more value to this post. Happy New Year!!

  13. Thanks for your sharing. I want to know, plugin no. 1,2,3 can used together or we choose 1 only. tq. Happy New Year 2014.

    • Hi Arman,
      Thanks for stopping by. Between WP Yoast & All In One SEO install only 1 plugin on your blog as installing multiple SEO Plugins can have negative effect on your blog and your blog loadin time will also increase. If you want you can use SEOPressor along with WP Yoast or All In One SEO. Use Yoast/AIO for generating meta titles and descriptions & SEOPressor for adding Keywords and doing other on site work.

      Keep Visiting WPSEOTricks & I wish you & your family a Happy New Year.

    Apollo recently posted…Spanish Cooperative Giant Tries Not to Repeat Lehman Brothers’ StoryMy Profile

    • Hey Apollo,
      Indeed WP Yoast is the best On Site SEO Plugin in the market and every blogger should install it on their website. BTW Thanks a lot for visiting & sharing your views about WordPress Yoast. Have an Awesome week.

  16. This topic is cool, there is only one plugin from this list that I never use on my blog (SEO Friendly Image). I also using Google XML sitemap at my early time of blogging, but after knowing that Yoast SEO also has this feature, I never using it again.

    On my blog, I also trying SEOPressor now, it is great plugin that more powerful than Yoast since Yoast only can optimize a keyword on a post and SEOPressor can be handle 3 at once.

    Regards, Tiyo.

  22. Hi , all plugins very good thanks sir!!

  23. SEO Friendly Images sounds like a great idea, it is true a picture is worth a thousand words, and most of us forget to optimize the pictures, and i like that’s it’s free :D
    but my question is: you really think “SEO Pressor ” is worth the money?
    i know most bloggers advertise it because of it’s affiliate program but, Please give honest reviews.
    because I found different opinions.
    Many thanks and Happy new year!

I am using SEO by Yoast and All in One SEO Pack plugins for my website and it make very easy to insert technical information as well as making a post or page, search engines and users’ friendly. However, I tried SEO Pressor and other plugin too but I am happy with these tools and will recommend all the WP bloggers to install these tools and make your website’s SEO batter and search engines’ friendly in easy way. Either you are worried about internal linking of your web pages, keyword destiny or meta information, all is quite easy with the help of these plugins.
