The Use of WordPress Plugins for SEO
Optimizing your WordPress Website for Search Engines by using Plugins can be risky and can only get you so far.
The Dashboard in WordPress gives you access to what is called Plugins which extend the core functionality of WordPress. Search out SEO in the Plugins screen and you will notice a variety of Plugins that are available to you. The first question you will ask is which one(s) should I use and which one is the best? Good question. The question you should ask is, what would I like to do to make my website more SEO friendly.
Unfortunately there is no one way to go about optimizing your website for the Search Engines. There are endless things you can consider and implement to your website that can effect how the Search Engine perceive your website’s content and message.
Many of the Plugins you will find will do something to help but in a way that may not be a good fit for your website. Having a clear strategy on how you wish to address the issue for SEO and your website is a good place to start so you can evaluate each Plugin accordingly.
Many will address the basics such as meta-tags for the page title, description and keywords if you find those items of value regarding your website’s optimization and understand that this is only the tip of the ice berg. There is so much more you can do and no plugin is going to do it all.
The over utilization of plugins can also hurt your website and cause negative results without giving you any warning or indication so be cautious about what you use and how you use it.
Given the limitations of plugins for SEO I typically avoid them. Once you understand optimization they become unneeded. Clean code is always the best way to go.
