  1. This is a good comparison for the SEO tools available. I was unsure of the difference and this really helped me understand.

    I am a newbie and learning a lot each day. This tell me to stay with the AIO SEO for now until I have enough experience to know how to use Yoast.

    I’m sure AIO will do everything I need.

    Thanks for the article and explanation.

    • Don, thanks for commenting and glad it helped you understand the difference my friend.
