I know Yoast has been the industry standard for years but since the last 2-3 years my top choices when it comes to an all-in-one SEO plugin are RankMath and SEO Framework.

I´ve been a big supporter of RankMath but have been playing around with SEO Framework in the past couple of months and I must say it´s starting to grow on me.

Yoast has become my third option.

Recently switched from Rank math to SEO framework
It's totally unnecessary if you've already optimized posts using Surfer or Frase
It’s totally unnecessary what? The switch? Or rank math or a SEO plugin?

Yoast is one of the most famous SEO plugins for WordPress.
It offers a lot of flexibility to deal with many different types of content. You can check several things, such as titles, meta descriptions and keyword use.
Yoast is also very friendly, even for beginners users.

Ever since I discovered the Seo Framework I'm using it on all my sites. My main site is still on YOAST, I'm too afraid to do a SEO plugin swap on a live site that's doing fairly well
same here : still using yoast on my primary site and no issues with ranking at the top. I don't think I have seen any cases where rankings were improved by simply just switching the seo plugin

The Seo Framework.
What do i want from a seo plugin?
- to be lightweight
- i know how to do onpage, all i need from it is to tell me the max length of title and meta description
- to have a sitemap feature

Thats it.

I use Yoast, and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm currently just using the free version.

I dont use much plugin as possible to keep the site lighter, here are my favourite ones Rankmath pro, WP rocket, and Askimet Spam protection.

Yoast is best for friendly and also for beginners and also common tool to process.
Rank math helps with website content optimization and provides insight in real time about your content.
Both are good to help our site to promote visibility and boost ranking also.

Personally, I use RankMath for all my websites, and so far, it's been working out really well.

I like the way it simplifies the sitemap and it gives me important clues as to on-page optimization.

Of course, you have to use whatever SEO plugins you have with other tools, namely keyword research software and competitor analysis tools, like Frase or Surfer SEO.

On top of all of that, there is no substitute for experience.

Im thinking to switch from rankmath to yoast or seo framework. One site has yoast, always get amazing on page whereas the rankmath is pain for me. Despite of doing every single thing it just never gives me a good on page score. I thought i was doing it wrong but when i took that same piece to yoast, it said good readability and on page as well. I am considering seo framework on one of my new sites due to its lightweight framework which i was not aware of.

Will be back with the results.


Ps: if any good speed optimization plugins apart from wp rocket? Adsense is taking forever to load, or maybe give me an alternative to adsense lmao

some months ago I switched to using Rank Math Pro.
It was very good to suggest the title, keywords, tags,..
