Yoast SEO premium

We recommend removing the SEO plugin and not replacing it. That’s right SEO plugins are bad for speed. Heavy on database traffic on the server. We do not recommend using SEO plugins.>

We can’t talk about Yoast SEO without foaming at the mouth.

We recommend removal of Yoast SEO plugin. See our PDF ebook SEARCH.ME. That is hard for many site owners because they are afraid it may help even though they have no evidence. We would add some plugins to compensate for features removed as explained in the PDF SEARCH.ME.

Yoast SEO (198 milliseconds load time)

Yoast SEO plugin makes no difference in page ranking. Nor do any other SEO plugin. The plugin indicates if your site is Google compliant. That has no guarantees or promises. Irrelevant activity. There’s no documentation establishing these plugins improve page ranking more than alternatives. You’d get better improvement for SEO by improving site content or user experience.

We also recommend reading this plugin article:

Faster and free alternatives to popular OptinMonster or SumoMe WordPress plugins.

Yoast SEO is slow and grows slower as the database increases. It is also twice as slow if you install the pro version. We recommend using no SEO plugin. It’s heavy and clutters the database. It’s almost impossible to remove.
