    Hi,
    I have been using the Jetpack Premium for almost a year now. I am planning to reduce the number of plugins and I was wondering if we can shift from Yoast to Jetpack SEO options? Will there be any effect the way SEO is handled by Jetpack as compared to Yoast? Do you have any reference or pros/con list like a comparative analysis between Jetpack SEO and Yoast SEO? Any effect on RAM/CPU usage and site performance and search engine impact? Thanks

    Hi, I’m not aware of an article directly comparing all of the features of both, but here’s what our SEO features:

    Please bear those do require a plan purchase, though the plans come with other features, too.

    @supernovia Hi. As mentioned in the opening post I am on a Paid Premium plan offered by Jetpack. Ya I read about the SEO tools in the post but any comparative analysis would be great.

    I’m afraid I don’t have an analysis like that for you, because comparing Jetpack and Yoast is like comparing apples and pears (not apples and oranges, because Jetpack and Yoast do have some similarities, but they’re really two different tools created for different purposes):

    Yoast is a comprehensive SEO tool, giving you granular control over all aspects of SEO on your site, while Jetpack can take care of the most important aspects of SEO like sitemaps, Open Graph tags, and what’s included in the titles of different pages on your site in the meta tags that are added to the HTML headers.

    So if you just want your site to be configured correctly so that search engines will show the correct information in search result listings, then Jetpack’s SEO features should do the trick. But if you want to dig deep into your site’s SEO and fine-tune it, right down to using the correct key words in your post and page content, then Yoast is better.

    @kokkieh Thanks for your response. No for Yoast we use the free version and what it automatically generates for each post.

    But yes, is this feature available in Jetpack SEO? – We use Modern Calendar Events
    so can we modify the title/description and keywords for individual events that we upload in Jetpack SEO? Like does it allow us the option to modify individual event title/description to our requirement? Thanks

    Jetpack does not offer an option like that, no. In terms of meta data Jetpack only allows you to modify the information outlined in the page that @supernovia linked to above.

    @kokkieh Thanks. On the link @supernovia shared – https://jetpack.com/support/seo-tools/ I find this

    Search and Social Previews
    Before you publish your new post or page, you can use the SEO preview tool to see how it will look on search engines and social media.

    The previews will use the custom description you set in the SEO Description box so you can see how it will look on the WordPress.com Reader, Google, Facebook, and Twitter. To view the SEO Preview, click Preview under the SEO Description box.

    So will it show auto preview or there is an option to edit the description via the preview tool?

    Hi @cmsnext so it seems that the docs we linked need some updating as, because of the plugin guidelines, the SEO description for single posts/pages is not available anymore. Sorry for the confusion :/

    @cmsnext a little update here, you should actually still be able to see the SEO description box while using Classic Editor. There, when working on a post from the WordPress.com Dashboard, you’d see the SEO description box in the right sidebar and you’ll be able to customize it’s content.

    I hope that helps 🙂

    @fresatomica Ok thanks for the update. But then I think I will need to install the classic editor plugin too and then hopefully I can change just the description no other options? Well in that case I think I may continue with the old plugin as I was already paying for Jetpack Premium I though why not use features, but I think you need to add these features as they are required. Another feature request which I had made was for re Publicize to social media accounts for custom post types almost a year back but nothing seems to have been done in that regard too. Just a suggestion if the features could be improved for paying members. Thanks
