I came across ‘Yoast’ the other night whilst browsing the web for something else (don’t exactly recall now). ’Yoast’ is a website owned by Joost de Valk, who specialises in (amongst other things) facilitating web site developers/owners with such things as tweaking their websites, improving search engine rankings, speed and user experience. He specialises in WordPress but also has other tools, not limited to WordPress, that you can also download.
So focussing on the WordPress tools written by Yoast, there are Functionality Plugins, Analytic & Metric Plugins, SEO & Affiliate Plugins, Social Media Plugins, Useful WordPress Plugins and multiple WordPress Fixes & Tweaks – I trust that by now you are getting the idea; there is really something there for everyone!
It’s true that there lots & lots of plugins, and it comes as no surprise that there are good and bad ones out there. It’s also true that not all of the plugins are bullet proof, if selected via the WP Dashboard. Now whilst I am no expert, more of an enthusiastic amateur; in my humble opinion, everything I have seen so far from Yoast is up there with the best. His software is well designed, professionally built and extremely useful for owners of WP sites, wanting to improve traffic to their site. His tools are extremely versatile with many configurable options, it takes time to tweak them just how you like.
And best of all,it’s free ~ can U believe it… You can of course and should, make a donation to Yoast, if you feel that these tools are of benefit to your site. You can vist the Yoast Site from this link.
