    One big warning. A LOT of people think that JUST installing an SEO plugin is going to improve their rankings. This is not true at all. You still have to actually know SEO basics and actually use the additional fields etc that the SEO plugin has. You still also need to optimize your interlinking, backlinks etc.

    So, if your theme already allows you to edit the title, description and keyword tags, you really don't need an SEO plugin.

    Also, take the recommendations that an SEO plugin gives you with a grain of salt. Making the changes can and does on may occasions turn your site into a sterile wasteland that is not reader friendly and has no personality. So, you make all the changes and now, nobody wants to stay on your site and read it. So.......

    BE VERY careful if you use an seo plugin. Make sure you understand it and understand SEO in the first place.

    And neither is that. It is very easy to have perfect on-page optimization without Yoast. Yoast doesn't do anything unique or special.

    As a matter of fact, recently a bug with Yoast caused a whole bunch of sites to lose rankings.

    Yoast is the worst plugin. Well that's my opinion.

    As I replied it helps, I never wrote you can't do a good on-page SEO without yoast.

    And still many WordPress user use it. I never do but many do. It's good for beginners

    No. It's actually pretty bad for beginners because they just follow the suggestions without knowing why or if they really need to. A lot of Yoast's suggestions are bad or not needed on 99% of sites.

    Yoast is best for someone that actually knows SEO so they understand what options they are choosing.

    I'm just getting done setting up a blogsite and plug it with Yoast as a means of SEO? Why is that it really doesn't help? What on-page suggestion should help me with my SEO?

    It takes care of some things for you that you would otherwise have to do yourself. There are some plugins that can help too. But nothing magical happens, it's still some software running on some hardware somewhere.

    There are plugins which work with backlink building and meta tag building, automatic pings so there are a number of plugins which will benefit your site.

    WordPress is a Content Management Software and its basis purpose is to provide ease in website development throughout website creation and then in additional plugin. It has nothing to do with SEO although it also provide ease in doing SEO through plugins. WordPress only save you from a hell of manual working

    Hi

    WordPress can be just really an information Management pc software and its own particular purpose will be subsequently in plugin and always to give ease during internet website production in website development. It doesn't have anything regarding search engine optimisation but additionally, it offer simplicity in performing search engine optimisation. You are simply saved by wordPress out of some hell of functioning that is guide
