Review: WordPress SEO
Problem We Faced
We wanted to make sure we were providing best-in-class SEO services for our clients. Using a plugin for search engine optimization (SEO) helps sites optimize website keywords and titles so they rank higher on the web pages of various search engines — particularly Google. We wanted to ensure clients were able to have their content work hard for them in order to boost their website’s SEO.
One of our favorite plugins to boost search engine optimization is WordPress SEO by Yoast. WordPress SEO by Yoast checks many of the main issues on why SEO is non-existent on your website. When writing new pages for your website, the plugin tries to optimize your ranking by checking your information. It will let you know if you do not have enough content or if you need to update your title to match keywords for your website through the page analytics bar. Through the SEO checks, content writers know to add in more quality information to draw in future readers whether it is adding in external links or making it easier to read. One of our favorite things about the Yoast SEO plugin is the ability to change your meta description and SEO title quickly since these are the first things viewers see on search engines.
