The SEO Framework Plugin

It’s faster and cleaner. I really enjoy plugins that aren’t pushing their branding too much in the WordPress Admin.
Now follow along if you are like me. Let’s export our sites SEO data from Yoast, then import into The SEO Framework. Don’t worry, its easy ☺

Roots.io  lays out their reasons for switching plugin.

“We’ve migrated to The SEO Framework. Some highlights include:

  • This plugin is written with massive and busy (multi-)sites in mind.
  • This plugin is 197% to 867% faster compared to other popular SEO plugins.
  • This plugin consumes 177% to 260% fewer server resources than other popular SEO plugins.
  • 100% fewer database interactions (numbers may vary on this one depending on plugin compatibility).
  • 100% fewer advertisements. Let’s keep it that way.”
