good one, but i would like to state here something other than ordinary. yes it has insightful features to be used to optimize your website for search engines. but in case - whether the content includes a specific focus on keyword or not - we don’t need to worry about it much now, because google which is the prime focus of search engine marketers, now considers content which is not just keyword focussed. What i mean say is

if your keyword is “how to use microwave”

you can not use this exact keyword throughout the web page, it will look absurd and not user friendly, you can use words in this particular phrases no of times, but not the exact phrase. And these plugins estimate the no. of times the exact keyword has been used. So about content, we have to be thorough, fresh,keeping the reader in mind than depending upon any plugin.

Yes @bagful_india – these tools only help, useful content is still up to us :smile:

HI Adtech,

Good article and selection, congratulations.

What I like most is that you have taken the time to evaluate and point out some of the unique features of each plugin.

Do you prefer a specific combination of plugins? I’m specially concerned about compatibility among Yoast, AIO and Greg’s which features overlap in many cases. I have installed them all in the past but never combined. Any suggestion about possible combinations?


I like your post, thanks…

Glad you liked it @bantolo

Hi @Diego_Fernandez,
Thanks for the appreciation.
I would rather prefer a single SEO plugin, instead of a combination of SEO plugins. :smile:
