WordPress SEO by Yoast is the most well-known WordPress plugin for on site SEO.

Considered by many to be the top SEO plugin available, WordPress SEO by Yoast offers a broad range of features to help you take care of technical optimization aspects and to also write better content. The plugin forces you to choose a focus keyword when writing an article to populate it throughout the content.

This plugin does come into versions one free the other a paid version. However, the paid version is expensive and the main difference you seem to get is that with the paid version you get support. I now use this particular plugin on my own and almost all clients website. However, it been one of the major plugins that can course the dreaded “white screen of death.” This is most down to major theme and plugin conflicts so I would always advise anybody to have a good backup before you install this plugin or you are thinking of updating this plugin. Here’s a nice

visual setup guide.

One of the things I don’t like about this plugin is that does take over your WordPress dashboard. However here’s plugin that allow you to remove a lot of this stuff it called Clean Up Yoast SEO.

This SEO plugin is the grand of daddy of SEO plugins and was the defector SEO plugin before WordPress SEO by Yoast become so popular.
