Over the last few weeks I switched to WordPress SEO by Yoast for my on-page content on my blog. Over the years I have had several different SEO services on my site. They are all good in their own way, but I really like the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin, because of it’s interface and ease of use. It just seems like a better platform in the long run to help me with my search engine optimization.

The WordPress SEO By Yoast plugin is great, because it has simple instructions to help you know exactly what your page will look like on Google and how to get the most out of your SEO efforts with every blog post.  They even have a keyword research tool that gives you related keywords for your focus keyword.

Additionally, WordPress SEO by Yoast has a color coded system for telling you what aspects of your page are SEO compliant and what parts of your on-page SEO needs work. I love that, because I know exactly what I can add to my blog posts to get the maximum SEO traffic possible.

However, this plugin is not just helpful for single posts and pages. It is also a great tool to use for your entire website.  They have everything on the plugin from XML Sitemaps to RSS Feed options to Importing and Exporting your SEO Data settings.

That actually brings up a cool little trick that I performed this morning as I was researching WordPress SEO by Yoast. Some of my SEO traffic has decreased over the past 30 days. At first I thought it was because of the new Google Penguin updates. However, I believe that it was because I switched from Platinum SEO to WordPress SEO by Yoast.

This was another example of the Social Networking Blog Duh List. However, in this instance I was able to quickly repair the damage with the SEO Data Transporter Plugin. As you will see in the movie above it makes it easy to transfer SEO data from one plugin to another. In this case I transferred SEO data from Platinum SEO to WordPress SEO by Yoast. That is what we call, “DA BOMB!”

WordPress SEO by Yoast definitely helps with your SEO efforts.
