WP Meta SEO and the One-Stop-Dashboard

Cover

Optimizing your blog’s search engine ranking has one clear meaning - improving your website’s performance to drive traffic from Google, Bing and other search engines. Yet at the same time, it means many things all at once.

SEO means analyzing search engine performance. It means finding and fixing broken links, having a functioning sitemap and filled-in meta data. SEO plugins cannot do this all on their own, but a good companion should make it easy to identify problems. And that is where WP Meta SEO comes in.

The WordPress plugin recently celebrated a new major release. In version 4.0, the focus turned exclusively towards an improved user experience that prioritizes SEO management.

Building Gutenberg’s Woo Factor

JoomUnited’s free plugin steps in where Gutenberg leaves off with new blocks. Untethered from WordPress’ release schedule, the addon has been churning out new blocks to enrich your users’ experience on your blog. Version 1.7 of the plugin brings two new blocks to your growing repertoire.
