Rank Math allows you to manage all of your on-page SEO needs for each type of content on your website. This WordPress plugin is very effective because it is integrated with Google Search Console, so you can see all the important information directly from your WordPress administrative panel.

Rank Math also allows you to manage meta tags for things like:

  • noindex
  • nofollow
  • noarchive

This WordPress plugin will tell you what keywords you are ranking for and will also show you how many impressions you are getting in various searches.

Rank Math also identifies the errors that Google sees on your site. All this information is easy to access, read, and summarize.

Additionally, Rank Math has features for:

  • XML Sitemaps
  • Rich Shards
  • Internal link recommendations
  • 404 Monitoring
  • Redirects
  • Local SEO
  • Image SEO

Rank Brain is definitely one of the best SEO plugins for WordPress.

3. All in one SEO

Since its launch in 2007, this WordPress plugin has provided webmasters with an easy-to-use solution for many SEO-related challenges.

The key features of the All in One SEO Pack include:

  • XML sitemap and Google Analytics support.
  • Automatic title optimization for all search engines.
  • Automatic generation of META tags.
  • It helps avoid duplicate content, which can have a negative impact on search engine rankings.
  • Ability to override any setting.

Overall, the All in One SEO Pack gives you the control you want.

The Broken Link Checker looks for broken links on your site, both internal and external.

If it finds any it will provide the HTTP status code (eg 404, 410), the anchor text, and the link source. This makes it easier to find and correct.

Since the plugin runs in the background all the time, it can continually check for broken links and alert you via email in case of a popup.

But perhaps the best feature is that you can fix the links with a few clicks and in bulk.

It also reports 301 redirects and there is also an option to fix those in bulk, replacing the redirect link with the final destination URL.

5. SEO Squirrly

SEO Squirrly was developed specifically for people who are not SEO experts.

Other plugins have different ways to access and implement SEO suggestions, but SEO Squirrly takes it to the next level. Take a look at its live SEO assistant feature.
