WordPress is technically ready for SEO, but this does not mean that you can’t improve it a little more. The Yoast SEO plugin, formerly known as WordPress SEO by Yoast is a plugin created from the ground up and carefully designed to improve your websites’ SEO prospects. Some of its key benefits include forcing you to choose a post or page keyword, which consequently enhances your SEO prospects. In addition, it uses a snippet preview mode allowing you to preview the rendering of a page or post and you get to see what it will look like on the search engine results pages, and it also helps you check the simple things that you are likely to forget such as meta description, focus keyword, subheadings among others. When used correctly, the Yoast Seo plugin will ensure you post the kind of content search engines love.
