2 The SEO Framework
Here is the review snippet of the SEO framework WordPress plugin. And here you will have the option of choosing the best title and description with URL to your blog post.
Unlike Yoast SEO plugin this plugin will not suggest you anything about writing. If you are an intermediate blogger with good writing skills and good writing format then you can go with this plugin.
The best thing about this plugin is it will save your time and it won’t resist you from writing the best topic.
You can explore whatever you want and the plugin will leave you free without forcing you to write the suggested content format.
If you are a beginner and you are not export in SEO then you should go with the Yoast SEO plugin unless you are a brilliant writer.
Like in the picture you will have the option of only choosing the title and meta description to your blog post. You won’t have the option of choosing the focus keyword in this plugin.
You will not see any green or red bullet about writing the content. As we know this plugin is very simple and very light to use.
The plugin will allow you to write up to the 50 characters in the post title which is less than the characters of Yoast SEO plugin.
The original title characters length in the search engine visibility is up to 65 characters. The maximum length of the characters which Yoast SEO plugin will support is 65 characters.
But as per the Analytics, the number of people show interest to click on short and sweet titles. That means they like to click on the titles which have 55 to 60 characters.
If you want to know the exact length of the post title then go with d search results page and then know the length of that post title.
If you take the example of the picture shown in below the first search result has 58 characters in the title. And the second one which has 63 characters in the search page preview but it has more length which is cropped on the page.
It has the total of 74 characters which is up to 15 words in the title of the post. This is how you can choose the best title length for your blog post.
The recommended length of the post title is 55 to 62 characters. Or in the Words, it can be 8 to 13 words.
Here in this plugin, you can see the post description bar. The post description is nothing but the meta description which allows you to choose up to 155 characters which are perfect.
But if you notice the used SEO plugin will provide twice of the characters extension in the description. That means you can take up to 300 characters in The Yoast SEO plugin whereas here you can provide the description of 155 characters.
This is a downside of this plugin compared to Yoast SEO plugin. These are the two editable bars you can see in the SEO Framework plugin.
In the visibility section, you will have to provide a URL to the blog post.
It will be better if you provide a short URL in this Canonical URL section which will reflect the address of your post.
You can also apply no-index to this post that means you can turn off the page from displaying in the search results page.
The No-follow link will tell the search engines not to follow any links in the post. And you can turn off the cache copy of this post by enabling no-archive to the post.
So this is the main comparison between the two WordPress SEO plugins. Most of the beggars migrating their plugin to SEO Framework in order to get more search results than previous. You can read this article Is The SEO Framework the Best Free SEO Plugin?
This is how the plugins perform the better job in their respective ways. According to me if you are a beginner then Yoast SEO plugin will be the best option for you and if you are a good writer then you can go with the SEO frameworks.
The plugin has over 40000 installations which are growing day by day and all the users satisfied with the plugin.
