8 SEO Plugins and Tools to Improve Google Visibility

Search engines are a major source of traffic for most websites. That’s why our users often ask us for SEO tips and plugins that can help improve the SEO of their WordPress sites and top SEO tools for WordPress.

In this article, we will share the 8 best WordPress SEO plugins and tools that will improve the SEO of your website.

1. WordPress SEO by Yoast

Considered by many to be the top SEO plugin available, WordPress SEO by Yoast offers a broad range of features to help you take care of technical optimization aspects and also write better content.

The plugin forces you to choose a focus keyword when writing an article to populate it throughout the content.

The robust list of features for this plugin includes snippet previews, page analysis, automatically optimizing and inserting meta tags, link elements, XML sitemaps, RSS optimization, breadcrumbs, editing your .htaccess and robots.txt file, social integration, import & export functionality, Google News SEO module and much more.

2. All-In-One SEO Pack

The All-In-One SEO pack is another robust WordPress plugin with a host of SEO features for your site. It does the basic stuff like automatically optimizing titles for search engines and generating meta tags.

The plugin also supports Google Analytics, custom post types, advanced canonical URLs, fine-tuning page navigation links, and has a built-in API to extend its functionality.

The plugin also helps you avoid duplicate content found on most typical blogs, and is one of the only plugins to provide SEO Integration for WP e-Commerce sites.

3. SEO Ultimate

The SEO Ultimate plugin is another all-in-one SEO plugin with some powerful features. The plugin gives you the ability to rewrite title tags, edit meta descriptions and help use anchor text to create deep links.

Some of the advanced functionality includes the rich snippet creator, author highlighter, link mask generator, canonicalize, 404 monitors, permalink tweaker, slug optimizer, and more.

4. KeywordTool.io

Keyword Tool is one of the best free keyword research tools available right now. It allows you to simply generate keyword ideas by typing in a keyword. These keyword suggestions are gathered from Google’s autosuggest feature.

These keyword suggestions are a treasure of information. Google autocomplete suggest keywords based on how often a keyword is used for the search.

This means that the top-most results are the most frequently searched terms on Google for that particular keyword. Keyword Tool is amazingly fast, and most importantly it is completely free for anyone to use.

You can use it to optimize the content on your WordPress site. It also allows you to get keyword suggestions from YouTube, Bing, and App Store as well.

5. Open Site Explorer

Developed by Moz, this free tool allows you to check data for any domain name. You can see who is linking to that domain and what anchor texts they are using.

Apart from that, Open Site Explorer offers a wealth of information like top pages, linking domains, which pages are linked on your site, etc.

This tool is free but has daily search limits for each person. To unlock the full power, you would need a Moz Pro Subscription which also gets you access to their other tools as well.

6. LinkPatrol

LinkPatrol is a premium WordPress plugin that allows you to control all the links on your website. You can monitor all the outgoing links on your site, find out which links are giving away link juice, and more.

LinkPatrol is less resource-intensive than other free plugins that do the same job. It provides a quicker and efficient way to clean up all your anchor text, spammy links, and link juice problems with a very intuitive and super fast user interface.

7. Broken Link Checker

Broken links can not only create a bad experience for your users, but they can also affect your site’s SEO. If you have been running a blog for some time, then you should check your site from time to time for broken links and fix them.

Broken Link Checker is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to find broken links on your WordPress site. You can then fix those links without even editing your posts. See our tutorial on how to fix broken links in WordPress with Broken Link Checker.

It is a highly useful plugin, and it’s free. The only downside is that it can become resource-intensive and may slow down your server. Some hosting providers like WPEngine have already blocked this plugin on their servers.

8. Rel NoFollow Checkbox

NoFollow Checkbox When you link to an external site, you are giving away some of your site’s authority to that link. If you don’t want to do that, then you can add a no-follow attribute to that link.

You can even make all external links nofollow in WordPress. But this might not be a great idea. Sometimes you may want to give a do-follow link to truly helpful sites.

Rel NoFollow Checkbox is a simple WordPress plugin that adds a checkbox in the insert link popup of WordPress post editor. This popup already has a checkbox that allows you to open links in a new tab.

Now, whenever you are adding an external link you can easily make it nofollow by simply checking a box.

Conclusion: So here comes the end to this list. They are my personal favorite and I consider them as top WordPress SEO plugins. Tell us which one is your favorite do you use any other plugin.
