5 of the Best SEO Plugins (with Pros and Cons)

WordPress is one of the most popular CMS options out there. It’s easy to use on the backend and has A TON of plugins to help boost your site at the click of a button. When it comes to SEO, we always advise a hands-on approach to auditing and optimizing. BUT plugins make it so much easier to go through SEO checklists.

Here are 5 of the top SEO plugins:

Yoast SEO

  • Pros: It’s user-friendly and accessible; pinpoints basic content-based SEO flaws; and proofreads for spelling errors or wrong keywords.
  • Cons: It uses a “stoplight” scoring approach (which can be rigid), it doesn’t always understand intent of content, and the free version is near useless with limitations.


  • Pros: It’s easy to use, you can import settings from other plugins, it’s FREE, and it comes with an amazing redirection module.
  • Cons: It can be difficult to move from RankMath to any other WordPress SEO plugin; the scoring system should be taken with a grain of salt.

The SEO Framework
