  • Resolved yxda


    I added Squirrly to Yoast to improve my SEO, but my search ranking plummeted instead even after deactivating Squirrly. They are supposed to compatible with each other and should work well together, but it seems something is wrong when both installed. What else should I do besides deactivating Squirrly to get things right? Thx,

    Did you import all the settings and SEO from Yoast to Squirrly when you installed Squirrly SEO plugin?

    Once you did that Squirrly keeps all the SEO metas and patterns from Yoast.

    The ranking are not affected if you import the SEO cause nothing whould be changed but the speed is improved.

    Originally, I was planning to use Squirrly in addition to Yoast as Yoast had already been setup earlier on my site and it was already running. So, I didn’t tick in Title Optimization, Description optimization and Add the post tags in Keyword META in Squirrly settings when I activated the plugin. I operate a company site with a few pages (home, services, contact, about pages) and not a blog with plenty of new and new content, so I am not sure which plugin or plugin combination would work better for me. Yoast was simple to handle, but it allows optimization for only one keyword that seems to render it less effective. Not sure if it makes any difference for SEO in my case which plugin I use. Even though, the two plugins were promoted in several articles as two SEO plugins that can work together, now I am not sure whether that is a good option and how exactly set them up in that case. Also, how easy to switch from one plugin to another as time goes by? Squirrly seems very impressive, but also more difficult to work with (at least more experience might be needed). My site has been running only for a couple of months. Thanks for your help.

    If you use Squirrly SEO plugin, the default on-page will help you have a good SEO for your website.

    Unless you need custom setup, you can just let Squirrly SEO do the SEO for your website.

    You can also have Yoast plugin on your website but is not mandatory as Squirrly already has all the required metas and optimization for Google, Bing, Yandex and other search engines.

    If you didn’t optimized your posts with Squirrly, you can import all the Yoast Settings and SEO from Squirrly > SEO Settings > Import.

    Let me know if you need any help.

    Best, Calin
