The Yoast SEO plug-in wasn’t broken at all. In fact, it was doing an excellent job of optimizing my web pages. I had read numerous reviews about how powerful the Yoast SEO plug-in was, but for whatever reason, the optimization never got implemented. I would say interest took over and just wanted to test out Rank Math.
I knew that using the free version would only be a waste of time for me, but still, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a shot. So I downloaded the free version, installed it on my hosting server, installed the Rank Math SEO plug-in, and started testing. As expected, it worked extremely well. My test reports were back in a few minutes, confirming my hunch. I was hooked.
To my surprise, there were actually quite a few advantages to using the Rank Math SEO plugin. Among these advantages was that it showed me exactly how to optimize each page of my website. Like with any good program, it showed me the best places for certain keywords to be placed, which was smart because I had a fairly limited amount of space to optimize. I also appreciated the easy-to-use dashboard.
One of the other advantages was that, since Rank Math SEO was using the Facebook format, I was able to see how it compared to other formats. This is important, especially if you’re thinking about advertising your site with Facebook, because the competition out there is fierce. Also, since I already have a Facebook account, I didn’t have to make a completely new login. That was one of the greatest advantages of using the Rank Math SEO.
Of course, what I found with the Rank Math SEO plugin is that it does have a few drawbacks. One of them is that it only shows you a partial optimization report. Since Facebook is known for providing more accurate results, this shouldn’t be a major problem. However, it’s not always helpful when you want to maximize your optimization, because sometimes Facebook will just give you a raw numbers report.
Another drawback of the Rank Math SEO pro-add-on is that it doesn’t support the latest Google updates. Some people might like this, but I’m not very keen on having the pop-ups appear even when I’m not on Facebook. And since Rank Math SEO has its own domain name, this isn’t much of a problem for me. However, if you don’t mind the pop-up appearing when you’re not on Facebook, you might not mind this drawback.
Finally, the biggest drawback of the Rank Math SEO pro-add-on compared to the premium version of Rank Math SEO is that it’s not free. It costs $15 to buy the premium version, whereas the basic version is absolutely free. You can easily get around this by using the “all in one” packages, such as the Rank Math Pro package. This makes the Rank Math SEO free version much less expensive but still pretty inexpensive compared to some other SEO software that are available on the Internet. So in the end, it all depends on what you’re looking for and how much you need to spend.
The Rank Math SEO setup manager does work quite well, but there are a few downsides that the Rank Math SEO package doesn’t have. For example, it doesn’t include the Google AdWords campaign setup. The Gutenberg editor has very nice features, including a keyword analysis tool and auto-completion for most keywords. The downside is that it’s quite a bit more expensive than rank math itself.
So what’s the difference between the two? Rank Math SEO is the “full package” that you’ll need if you want to be able to optimize your website effectively. The other plugin, the Rank Math Pro version, is just another plugin. If you only want the rank math optimization, then the free version may be your best bet.
The free version also lacks the other great features that the Rank Math Pro version has, such as the Google AdWords campaign setup. Another thing that the free version lacks is the Google scheme mark markup engine. The Schema markup language is necessary if you want to be able to optimize your websites for Google. But again, the paid version includes everything that the regular Rank Math SEO has to offer, but without the scheme mark engine.
So which version of Rank Math SEO are you going to choose? The answer depends on what you are looking for. If you’re a beginner with these things, then the free version will work for you. If you’re not really sure about what you want or how to use these tools, then you might want to stick with the one with the premium features in it. If you have no use for the snap-button system, then you can get the limited version for free and then go back later.
