Yoast SEO is a search engine optimisation (SEO) plugin for WordPress. It is the most popular plugin of its type. It does not provide better SEO with the flick of a switch, but by providing tools to help you achieve better SEO. We use Yoast SEO in most websites we build.
Its single most useful feature is the post editor box where you can edit a post’s title, meta description and analyse the content’s SEO.
A basic version of Yoast SEO is free and you can buy a premium version with more features. For new websites, the free version is usually sufficient.
Yoast SEO’s closest competitor is the All In One SEO Pack plugin. All In One SEO is not far behind Yoast in terms of total active installs.
