Improve your WordPress SEO: Write better content and have a fully optimized WordPress site using the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast.
This an amazing plugin, as it got the most attention nowdays, and all the clients love it.. me too.
but i have installed it yesterday on my new blog, and don't know how to configure for the better results.
the tutorial on its website is old, the new version is changed i think.
so i have the problem of configuring it.
I'm using this plugin on one of my blog which is hosted with Bluehost Hosting. It's just a 2 month old blog & getting more than 1000 pageviews per day for even high competitive keywords. The plugin is very light thus increase my blog speed even i'm hosting it on shared hosting. Yoast+Bluehost combinations worked for me as well. It deserve 5-Stars.

Just wanted to rate it :) Because it deserves 5 star. Rocked my blog :)
So damn simple to use but so damn powerful at the same time!!!
I could also uninstall the OpenGraph dedicated plugin I had installed, because this one takes care of OpenGraph too, and even more intuitively!
I use this on practically every website!
The Yoast GEO plugin has been one of the outstanding GEO plugins in wordpress. With a lot of competition among different GEO plugins, yoast is the most widely used and referred plugin. This plugin analyses different posts based on a specific keyword and looks at the URL, content, description, title etc. and make sure that the post has a good GEO focus. The Yoast plugin also helps in writing meta titiles and descriptions giving a lot of options for optimizing the website pages. It has a lot of features like enabling strong permalinks, creating XML sitemap, adding breadcumbs to the compatible theme, and allowing to control indexing of archives and categories. It also comes with Facebook OpenGraph and Twitter Card implementation. It also provides easy 301 redirects and add canonical URL. Yoast's easy configuration with clicking through tabs and selecting the best option for the website (like hindi sms) makes it popular as it also allows importing information from other GEO plugins.
I'm testing this plugin and I'm impressed, it's excellent!
I have two questions though,
I don't know if it's just me but I when I access my site for the first time, right after I activate this plugin I notice the site takes many seconds to load (more than it should, say, around 9s). That just happens the first time after I activate the plugin, is this normal?
2. I see the sitemap is generated with some text at the top linking to Yoast,
"Generated by Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin, this is an XML Sitemap, meant for consumption by search engines."
Can this be removed? does it affect SEO in any way?
Keep up the good work guys!
A great plugin that I will greatly benefit from.
Awesome Plugin. I use this plugin for all my websites and works fine.
