When we talk about SEO, the best name that comes to my mind is Yoast SEO plugin and All in one SEO plugin. I have worked with both of these plugins on my other website, and here I will tell you the way the plugins work and why these are the best.
Best SEO Plugin
In my view the best SEO plugin is WP SEO plugin by Yoast.

“Joost de Valk” the creater of this plugin has done a fantastic job, as this plugin provides a very detailed information of the things that we must do so as to make our post SEO friendly. Here I am going to provide you all with the details of how this post works and the different methods to use this plugin.
Why this Plugin is best?
- This plugin provides you with all necessary details and things that you want for increasing your seo. Like focus keyword, that would help you to choose a keyword that may be searched mostly by people.
- Meta-description of post- that allows you to give the idea to the visitors about what the post is all about.
- It gives you information about density of your keyword in all different things like heading, content, url etc.
- It informs about your image tags.
- It tells about the right length of the post.
- You can add Canonical URL and site map through it by going to advanced option.
How to use this Plugin?
Here is the simple description on how to use this plugin.
As you see the below image:
- As you watch in the above image that you have to first set up the Focus keyword for your post. Focus keyword means the keyword that you think would be mostly searched by people. This helps in improving the post position on different search engines. The focus keyword must have 2-3% of density in the content so, as for SEO rich post.
- Then provide a SEO title, this is the title that is shown on the different search engines for your post. Provide a long and a title that provides description of your post.
- Meta description is the content that will be visible to other visitors when they see your post on Google. This must be less than 156 words and must be attractive. So, as most of people by reading this enter your website.
Now Advanced settings
- Whether you want to keep a single post or page out of the index, or you prefer to keep entire sections of your site unfindable: the WordPress SEO plugin helps you to do that. Hidden by default under the “advanced” button is a meta robots settings block that allows you to choose any setting you want on a per page basis.
- You can enter the sitemap, canonical URL, meta robot Index, permalink to the post.

In my view this is the best plugin for your wordpress.
There are many other plugins for SEO as well:
The other plugin that I loved to use was All in one SEO plugin. But it is not as advance as Yoast. You can use both the plugins together, if you want to.
