If you’re using WordPress for your website, you should download some useful plugins. You can get plugins for everything – to help with website design, to block spam, to resize images… but this blog post will focus on the best plugins for SEO.
Yoast SEO can be integrated with every blog post and is a useful way to see if you have included your target keywords enough times, as well as check for other types of on-page optimisation. With Yoast, you will need to type your keyword into a bar at the bottom of the page, and it will then tell you how many times you have included the keyword in the text.
When using Yoast, it is important to be aware that it isn’t the ‘be all and end all’ of SEO – sometimes the plugin does encourage keyword stuffing, which should be avoided. However, it’s a very useful tool to see where your keywords are.
