Avatar of Geoff Wilkings

I am thrilled beyond belief with Yoast's plugins; they have helped me reach number 1, yes that right NUMBER 1 for most search terms I have sought out on Google. Yes, I have to do a lot of work, but I follow the steps outlined, and over time, I'm ranking top on Google. I can't believe it, thank you, Yoast.

The free version of Yoast SEO gives you lots of tools to help you do well in the search results. Yoast SEO Premium makes many tasks much easier. Literally this is why I pay for it. I COULD do everything myself, but it's worth not :)
