Essential Plugin For All WordPress Users
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is a fantastic WordPress plugin that allows you not only to control important aspects of your site's SEO, but also lets you specify how you would like your site to display in search engine listings.

We have used the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin for many years both personally and professionally and taught hundreds of business owners at our WordPress training seminars, workshops and training guides how to install and use this essential WordPress plugin.

We also feature a comprehensive and detailed step-by-step screenshot tutorial on how to configure and use this plugin in our own WordPress training plugin here at WordPress.org, and have published a preview of this detailed step-by-step tutorial on our blog. See it here: [ link deleted, please do not post links in reviews ].

Over the years, we've explored many excellent plugins for WordPress SEO for various different sites that we have built, but we keep coming back to the WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin.

WOW
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am VERY new to using WordPress so naturally I don't understand anything! Also I have never really "gotten" the whole SEO thing anyhow.

This plugin is the closest to "doing it for you" that I found, really makes it easy. The settings show up right on the page you're editing.

I was wondering about meta keywords (which they recommend against) but you can activate them in settings (but you have to click "start tour" to make them come up (from SEO dashboard). I contacted yoast about this and Joost got back with me personally right away.
