I am making my first WordPress website. I was looking for a good seo plugin and found the following 2 plugins:
I wondered which one I should use. Can anyone please tell me which one is the best?
You are likely going to get as many different opinions on your question as folks that reply! They are both quite excellent plugins and while generally they perform the same functions there are differences between the two.
Like most heavy duty plugins that do several different things, these two search engine optimization plugins can be very challenging to truly learn how to use effectively. Of course, at the same time they also both are structured to be very good right out of the box and on install/activation at your site.
Truth be told, you are not going to go wrong using either one of them. Just don't use them both at the same time! But you might try one on your current project and try the other on your next one. See which one seems to do the better job for the type of sites you are running.
Share how things work out for you.
Thanx for you input!
In case you are still looking, here are a few articles that I just read through this evening responding to that very question. And James is right - it comes down to a matter of opinion.
Anyhow, you may wish to browse through these articles as they give some pretty detailed comparisons. Also, be sure to take note of the dates of the articles, as the content may or may not be up to date:
I am using All in One SEO Pack in http://navinadhikari.com.np .And this is working great in my site, recommend this to others.
jglovier: Thanks for your links to the past reviews of Yoast -vs- AIOSEO. I have to say, the review at http://perishablepress.com/wpseo-vs-aioseo/ is almost 18 months old, and Yoast has been very aggressive improving the plugin. I use Yoast, but have to admit that I've never tried AIOSEO. FYI: AIOSEO just released version 2 of its Pro version, so that's worth a look. Available here: http://semperplugins.com. Good luck to all.
