Best SEO Plugins for WordPress 2017
I have picked up five best plugins that can assist you in topping SERPs. Let us begin with the list.
1. Yoast SEO
Yoast is most probably the best SEO plugin for WordPress. What it does is help you in optimizing your content for maximum search engine visibility. With the free version, you can enter a keyword and make the content optimized for that one.
The paid version helps you adjust your content for multiple keywords as well. The plugin also gives a score to the readability of your content and helps you enhance the same with suggestions.
2. Real No Follow Checkbox
You know? External links steal some of your authority and link juice if kept them do follow. With Real No Follow checkbox, you can decide whether you want to keep a link do follow or no follow.
It is even possible to make all links no follow as well. But I don’t recommend you do that. Keep links to authority sites do follow.
Once you install the plugin, you will have an extra checkbox under Open link in new tab/window option on link configuration box.
3. All in One SEO Pack
If you don’t like Yoast and you want an alternative, All in One SEO Pack is that. Once you check it out, you will realize that it is yet another popular SEO plugin with more than 1 million downloads.
The features are almost similar to Yoast SEO. And one thing I noticed that they claim themselves as the only SEO plugin you can integrate with WP ecommerce sites.
4. Broken Link Checker
Not only do broken links ruins the user experience on your site, but it also brings you down on the search results.
Broken Link Checker is a handy plugin, which notifies you about a broken link as soon as it appears. As the plugin scans all the links regularly, it may become resource hungry.
5. SEO Friendly Images
You can bring a lot of traffic by optimizing your images. If you rank top on Google Images for potential keywords, you can get many eyeballs scrolling through your site.
SEO Friendly Images plugin helps you optimize the images by automatically adding alt and title tags according to the post title.
6.) Squirrly SEO plugin
Just like the WP-Yoast and All in One SEO plugin the Squirrly SEO plugin is also one of the great SEO plugins. It focuses on the human aspect of reading and tells you various aspects of your content which can be fixed for better comprehension. It has a free variant as well as a paid one. Based on my experience the paid experience is worth the investment. So if you are willing to spend some money then this could be the SEO plugin of choice for you.
You have got six SEO plugins for WordPress now. Of all these, you don’t have to use Yoast and All in One SEO together. Both have similar features.
I recommend you use either Yoast or All in One and all the other together. Even the Squirrly SEO plugin is also one of it’s own kind, so you won’t need to use Yoast or All in One SEO along with it.
