3 Best SEO plugin for WordPress [Crucial for every WordPress Users]
1 – Yoast SEO Plugin
when we talk about to optimize the WordPress website, So the first plugin that comes to our mind is Yoast SEO plugin, no doubt. because this plugin is quite easy to setup.
If you are not using this plugin yet so I will highly recommend you to use Yoast SEO. if you already installed other SEO plugins so that’s ok you don’t need it.
This one is another great plugin for website optimization. it’s a popular plugin, it provides you great addons. both Yoast SEO & all in one SEO are market leaders at this time.
3 – Rank Math Plugin
it’s a new plugin that provides more features in the free version. With this plugin, you can target multiple keywords in a single post which is far better than the free Yoast SEO plugin.
Rank math also provides better features than Yoast and all these features are free. but in Yoast SEO, you will have to purchase the pro version.
Well, all these plugins are better and provide outstanding features. you can create a dynamic sitemap with all these plugins and you don’t need to install another sitemap plugin.
If you are not using any SEO plugin so must use any one of them. here are all the features you get in a single plugins
- XML Sitemap
- Robots.txt Editor
- Canonical Tag
- Title and meta description Optimization
- Keyword Optimization
- Search Console Integration (Google, Bing, Yandex)
- Content & SEO analysis
- Google Schema Markup
All, right guys, all these plugins are crucial for every WordPress user, use any one of them. do not use two SEO plugin at a time it will create problems for you. install only one plugin.
Whenever we write an article and link out another website there is a problem occur.
by default, WordPress adds do-follow tags in external links. and you don’t want to pass link juice for all the websites.
So you have only one option to add rel=”nofollow” tag manually. if the article is too long that will be time-consuming. but now you can add “nofollow” tag easily just a single click.
3 -Image Optimizer
If you running a WordPress blog that would be easier to optimize your images but if you use another framework then you will have to optimize your images manually.
For WordPress Users
I really like this plugin and this will save you lots of memory. this will disappoint you because there is limited optimization in their free version.
smush is another popular plugin in WordPress. but I don’t think so is their free version is great because I have used this plugin many times on my website or my other blogs but I didn’t found good results.
Maybe their premium version is powerful. many popular influencers recommend this plugin but I really don’t like it. well, this is my opinion. you can try both these plugins and see which one working great for you.
Others Like (Php, Asp.net etc)
I often use tinypng website to optimize my images which is an amazing website. You can bulk optimize your images, it will allow only 20 images at a time.
There are other websites also available but I like this one, even they provide WordPress plugin also if you like tiny png you can download their plugin.
if you have installed too many plugins on your website and don’t want to install any plugin then tiny png is best for you.
4 – Schema Plugin
Rich snippet adds additional information in your SERP results so that your results look more attractive. it also improves your CTR. There are lots of snippets available you can use as per your website.

5 – Redirection
Manage redirects immediately without knowledge of Apache or Nginx web servers. fix your 404 error and redirect your broken link old destination to the new one.
Sometimes we change the URL path of our posts and pages, due to which we get a 404 error on that page. And some people leave that page.
Instead of doing this, always redirect the old URL path to the new one. So that your user’s experience is not impaired, and the backlink (Link Juice) you created on the old URL is transferred to the new one.
