Are you struggling with SEO? In this post, you will discover two WordPress SEO plugins that will help you to optimize your artist blog.
WordPress SEO Plugins
If you have been using WordPress for some time now, you already know how many plugins are available for you to use. There are plugins for everything your mind can imagine, and SEO plugins is no exception.
Unfortunately, with so many SEO plugins to choose from, it makes it difficult for someone new to WordPress to pick the best one.
The Best WordPress SEO Plugins
You will have a choice to pick a different plugin for each SEO task or you can choose one plugin that does it all.
Today I am going to talk about two WordPress SEO plugins that do it all, and best of all they are free.
Picking the Best WordPress SEO Plugin
The best way to start when it comes to choosing plugins is first to narrow it down by how many people are using the plugin.
This can be done by looking at the active users shown under the stars of the plugin’s description.
You might also want to take some time and do a “Google Search” for reviews on the plugin you are looking into.
When it comes to WordPress SEO plugins there are two that stand out. I am going to go over both and tell you which one I use.
I am going to start with the All in One SEO Pack plugin. I have never personally used this plugin but many of my colleagues can not say enough good things about it.
The plugin was created in 2007 and within a short amount of time became one of the most downloaded SEO plugins for WordPress.
