WordPress is one of the most popular web development software in the world. It began as a blogging platform before turning into a website builder. With WordPress, you have simple and innovative features that can help you build your ideal website.

The program has a straightforward URL rewrite system that doesn’t interfere with session IDs in URLs. With a click of a mouse, you can change from dynamic URLs to simple URLs by using dates, numbers, and letters. This results in a clean and simple set of URLs that are ideal for search engines.

One of the most important parts of having a website is making sure that your content is optimized for search engines like Google or Bing. Luckily, there are a handful of plugins that are designed specifically for search engine optimization (SEO).

Here is a narrowed down list of the best WordPress SEO tools in 2020.

Yoast

Yoast is an SEO plugin tool for features such as meta editing and linking suggestions. It can be offered as a free package, or you can pay for a package with added features. A great advantage with Yoast is that you can play around with the headings and page titles, giving you control in customizing your page.

With a custom-meta description included as a feature, you can choose what your text will be on the search results to attract more clicks.

This is the original plugin that automatically comes with WordPress and is available both as a free and paid feature. It’s simple for beginners who want to get into website building or blogging, plus you have essential SEO features such as meta descriptions for search engines and customizable titles and headings.

Rank Math

Rank Math is an SEO plugin that’s free and has many features such as offering an advanced install option for customized base configurations. You can control your site schema, as well as integration with Google Search Console.

Just like the other plugins, you can set up meta descriptions as detailed text snippets for search engine results.
