best wordpress seo pluginsI’ve written some great blog posts, installed a great-looking theme, and …… no one came to visit my site! Why? That is because you didn’t install the best wordpress seo plugins to  promote your site so that search engines can see it! Many bloggers say – Content is King! That’s right, but if content is king, then SEO should be the queen. If you don’t let the search engine know about you site, no one will come and visit your website. That is why SEO is so important. Luckily, there are many great plugins that will help your blog rank better. I will discuss them in the following blog post……

The Best WordPress SEO Plugins

First Place – WordPress SEO by Yoast

This is by far, the best WordPress SEO plugin I have seen. It lets you apply custom meta-tags and focus keywords for every post so you can optimize every post in your blog. It also enables you to edit the Robots.txt and automatically generates a XML Sitemap. This is truly the all in one solution. I will write another post explaining how to use WordPress SEO by Yoast in the future.

Second Place – All in One SEO Pack

In the past, you had to install tons of different plugins to do better SEO, and the All in One SEO Pack was one of those. It takes care of many prospects of SEO, although not as good as the Yoast SEO Plugin. However, if you are unable to install the Yoast Plugin or you are seaking for an alternative option, the All in One SEO Pack will not dissapoint you either.

Alternatively, you can also use an online Sitemap Generator here.
