So, these are the best WordPress SEO plugins in 2020.
If you are a newbie to SEO and WordPress, I would recommend you to go with Yoast SEO.
It is easy to install and configure settings. Otherwise, go for the all in One SEO Pack or the SEO Framework.
The last two are also good but for me, it takes time to trust new plugins.
But I’ll definitely try rank math and reviewed it on one of my next posts.
