I assume it all counts towards seo but also assume that your wp plugin seo tools will have believe that you must have it to get a higher score whilst equally promoting their tool my question. Are most wp sites indexed without it? I messed with some code in functions to make title keywords but was looking to bulk edit and know how in db but is it even worth bothering for seo.

I've used the SEO tools, but also ranked sites without them, so I don't believe they are needed. Maybe for complete noobs as a simple "plug & play" solution, but if you have a good grasp of your own content and on-page SEO, then you should be fine without WP "hand holding"

I ended up mucking around for a whole day with it well worked out how to get a high score 80% and how to do it with almost empty post with 100% score and all doesn't matter as seo only works with a site map and zero nonsense content and use nothing with similar content including templates.

The focus keyword is the keyword you want to rank for in the search engines. This is an important part of WordPress SEO best practices, and every website owner should implement it in their content creation process.
