Yoast is most well-known for its plugin for Drupal and WordPress. WordPress is the version I am most familiar with, and is the most common version. It is practically a given on every WordPress project I do. It is the best and most flexible plugin for setting up SEO on a WordPress site that I have found. The two most important things it can do quickly and easily is to templatize clean URLs and clean title tags. While there are other ways to do this, the Yoast plugin is definitely the easiest and most effective. There are other SEO features built into the plugin as well. For example, it can selectively set types of pages (i.e., category, author, archive, etc.) to “noindex, follow”, a common recommendation for WordPress blogs. This plugin is most commonly compared with All in One SEO Pack. While All in One SEO Pack is generally capable of doing everything that Yoast does, there is one key difference that causes me to go with Yoast instead. When All in One SEO Pack adds things like title tags and meta descriptions to a page, it keeps the page from rendering until everything else is loaded, and then inserts the changes. For any site that loads even slightly slow, this means a blank page until the page is fully loaded. This is not a great practice, and Yoast manages to make the changes without hurting the load speed. It is extremely easy to use, and it is free to download the basic version. I have not yet found a need to upgrade it to the full version, but if you need additional support, it is certainly an option.
- Easy to use - Basic version is free - Performs many global SEO functions on a WordPress site - Doesn’t hurt load speed
- Only works on a couple open source platforms (mainly WordPress and Drupal)
Whether you're a newbie to managing Adwords struggling to get your head around the complexities to maximize your ROI or if you're a seasoned veteran looking for a software to save you some time on your PPC duties - Wordstream is a ripping solution. I was initially taken aback by the cost as the entry level plan is confronting if you don’t fully appreciate what it can do for you. But after taking a trial and then signing up and embarking on some basic training as part of their onboarding process, it was clear to see that this was going to maximize my ROI and save me time while doing it. But if you're only managing a small budget then it's not going to be for you. Its 20-minute PPC work week feature runs you through a few simple steps to add negatives, find keywords to add, optimize your bids, optimize your ads, and pause duplicates if they exist. Even if you're only going to use this one feature to manage your PPC, then you've saved yourself a whole lot of time.andnbsp; But beyond that you can manage your campaigns as you would from Adwords and if you want to invest more time than the 20 minute work week, then you should definitely monitor the Query Stream feature to find even more negatives to refine your bidding.Wordstream also has landing page templates, and you can set your conversion goals and start utilizing their scheduled reports. An absolute must for anyone managing search-based Adwords campaigns.

Wordstream is a great organisation tool when it comes to managing a large number of accounts, but if you only run a few smaller accounts we think Wordstream is an unnecessary additional cost.More about WordStream
