Julius Gashumba: The first article writer claims to be an SEO blogger but doesn`t offer any alternatives after bashing Yoast. The second is a political news site. It would be nice to get references from industry insiders.
Michelle Korn: You didn`t read what I wrote. I said my website coder did a search.
And I never said I LOVED yoast. I have it on all my blogs & I just want to know why people don`t like it. There has to be a good reason unless people are just following what everyone else is doing which is what most people do unfortunately.
Your article has nothing to do with Yoast screwing up people`s SEO. This is what I heard in another FB group, that Yoast actually hinders your SEO.
And the article only really talks about the paid version. I only use the free version.
Brenda Michelin: Do your research. And relax. Keep Yoast. Not a problem for me.
Ahmed Ibrahim: Sure it could be. But for non-techie people won`t be as easy.
Bjornen Nilsson: of course not, it`s not supposed to be easy. You`re supposed to learn about what you`re using, not take the easy way out. If you`re gonna use a plugin for each and every feature you want/ need, you`re most likely not gonna end up with a very stabile or fast website.
Julius Gashumba: When you have access to a car, would you still rather walk? I would like to be able to service as many clients as I can rather than doing it manually, a plugin will be an aid not the end all be all.
Bjornen Nilsson: you still have to do the search/ focus word research, write the content and make it work across the whole site. The plugin won`t do that (unless I`m mistaken). Sure, the plugin might be useful in some areas, but I rather not.
Luckily, the choice is optional.
Julius Gashumba: It`s those other useful areas that would actually be the purpose for a WP plugin. One, absolutely, still has to write good content.
