  1. Nice Collection of WordPress SEO Plugins, All the Plugins are required and useful.

    1. Hi Rakesh,

      Glad you found the list useful 🙂

  2. Excellent listing.This is very helpful to me.SEO factors are well analysed and I will follow.

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for including Squirrly in this article!

    – Ana, from the Squirrly team

  4. I got the plugins what i was exactly looking for my blog. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  5. Optimizing images always seems to be forgotten. I can’t count how many I’ve come across that are named 1 or the date the camera took the picture, etc. SEO Image Optimizer, good suggestion and nice list overall.

  6. All-in-one should be on top! And Alex Furfaro is spot on, ALT tags plus image naming is a hugely overlooked factor, that could help in building up relevancy for a website.
