We’re often asked what the best SEO tools and plugins are that we would recommend for WordPress. This is because search engines are a major source of traffic for most websites on the internet and optimizing your content for your visitors as well as search engines can greatly grow your business. In this video, we will share the best WordPress SEO plugins and tools that you should use.
For this guide, our first recommendation is All in One SEO for WordPress(AIOSEO) as the best WordPress SEO plugin available to help you get started. It has a setup wizard that automatically helps you choose the best SEO settings for your specific business needs.
There is an on-page SEO checklist to include a smart meta tag generator where you can use dynamic values in your descriptions as well as add rich snippet schema markup. All of these and more powerful tools are included to help make things that much easier for you.
SEMRush is another powerful tool to use to help find organic keywords and terms to see what your competitors are ranking for and how you can improve your website content. Their keyword planner will help you focus your keywords for what you are wanting and rank your content.
Google Search Console will help you actively track and maintain links on your site and let you know of any crawl errors. It also tracks helpful information such as total clicks, impressions, average CTR, and average position.
Yoast is another SEO plugin that you can use to allow you to optimize your WordPress websites for search engines. This includes generating an XML sitemap for your site content which makes it easier for search engines to crawl your site.
Google’s keyword planner helps you generate your own keyword ideas from Google itself that are normally for advertising but can help you find what people are organically searching for. Nobody knows what people are searching for more than Google so using their tool is a powerful thing to have.
Ahrefs is an all-in-one SEO tool for businesses and marketers that offers similar tools and features to SEMRush. While there is some overlap, Ahrefs has a great backlink analyzer for finding which sites are linking to multiple competitors for finding more partnerships to build in the future.
Lastly, in this video, we will recommend taking a look at MonsterInsights. MonsterInsights is the best Google Analytics plugin for WordPress that allows you to easily install Google analytics in WordPress that shows human-readable reposts inside your WordPress dashboard.
