    1. I used ALL IN ONE SEO pack in my initial days of blogging, and all it allowed me to do was customize title tags, metas etc. With WordPress seo by yoast plugin I can customize and fine tune a lot more things and rank specifically for what I choose by careful optmization. So, Yoast wins for me anyday!

  5. When I start blogging, at that time I use ALL IN ONE SEO plugin for SEO but after reading you article I think that it’s time to change ALL IN ONE SEO plugin to Yoast Plugin. Thank for writing such a wonderful article, I hope yoast plugin help me to increases my traffic.

  6. Use pages for important topics rather than posts.

    Hi Aditya, you mention this above. I have made most of my site “posts” but notice that the date will appear in the Google Snippet (Preview). As most of my site is not date related I worry how this will look years down the track. Will this be an issue to change most of the “posts” to “Pages”? Or to now start creating pages instead of posts?

    1. If you have already created the posts Patrick bro then you are left with few solutions: Either create pages with same exact content and URL as the posts after taking them down, or you can also use the Date Exclusion SEO plugin for WordPress which hides the dates from the SERPS and makes it easier to retain freshness on the posts!

  12. Hi Aditya

    It’s really nice and fantastic to see you tear-down issues about WordPress SEO. I am aware that many Blog doesn’t give a hoot about WordPress SEO, and alot of bloggers out there share similar philosophy.

    I can’t help but say that this is a very informative piece and well researched.

    Let me start off by saying I prefer both. Traffic is never too much, so it would be idea to write for bots (organic traffic ? ) and humans (referral & direct traffic).

    Implementing these tips will obviously increase one’s traffic but it may not be sustainable over time. The reason of this is because, subsequent Google search update can bring down the traffic, and then you have confronted with the time and resources to fix the problems. Most times, you may never reclaim your sweet spot.

    I have seen Google practically make a big name site turn into rubble, because of change of policy. To avoid seeing your blog becoming a joke overnight, one has to be very wise when dealing with SEO.

    Furthermore, I don’t think it’s easier to sell your affiliate links to users via organic traffic. People require trust to use their wallet on a product, trust isn’t built overnight, it takes time and readership to achieve this. So, on this peculiar case, referral and direct traffic takes the day.

    Then, I love your analysis on Schema, and I am pretty sure the term is alien to alot of bloggers. Schema is really underrated, but the effect of its correct application works like a magic on blogs with the feature.

    Again, thanks for this great article and enjoy the rest of the day.

    Best Regards
