SEO is Not a Plugin

SEO is not a Plugin.

SEO is not a plugin.

Come on. Repeat after me

“…SEO is not a Plugin”.

I don’t care how they market their plugin, Installing Yoast, Rank Math, or All in One SEO and whatever else is out there on your website is not doing SEO.

It won’t do shit for you unless you know what your doing.

Heck, it won’t do shit for you, even if you follow their guidelines.

Brendan Hufford did an analysis of the claims made on these SEO Plugins websites.

It makes for interesting reading. Take a look for yourself below.

I had a client once tell me proudly after buying Yoast Premium, that “it does everything for you…”.

I didn’t know what to say.

I just nodded

But I can take some of the blame for this misplaced confidence in tools over knowledge.

I was relatively new to freelancing and made many mistakes. One of which not being strong enough in my communication.

Lesson learnt, won’t happen again.

But I digress.

SEO plugins, help you do SEO. They don’t do it for you.

But only if you know what you are doing.

If you want to know more about SEO than I’m happy to talk you through what you need to know.

No sales pitch. No obligation.

I just want to help.
