WordPress is becoming the standard platform of choice for a lot of web developers these days. This is mainly because of the ease of usage of WordPress, easy editing features, ability to integrate with custom solutions, and also because WordPress uses PHP and MySQL-based systems, both of which are widely used by web developers all over and support and documentation is readily available for them. If you remember then a long time back we did a full configuration post for WordPress SEO by Yoast.

- Rich snippets settings: The rich snippets settings when turned on allow people to mark up their posts with specific type schemas. For example, a product review might contain a star rating and this feature helps people to rank better in SERPS (Search engine ranking profiles) and also gives a better CTR (Click through rate)
- Load speed optimization: The load speed optimization features allow you to speed up your website using simple .htaccess codes like mod_deflate, mod_headers, and mod_expires modules. Adding these codes manually to the .htaccess file can be a real headache. This feature simplifies the implementation of simple speed tweaks.
Though it’s no substitute for high-performance speed plugins like W3 Total cache, still it gets the job done for beginners, which is a pretty good thing in itself! 😛
