Comparison of All In One and Yoast Plugin
In the above-discussed features, we can clearly notice many of the features are the lack in All in One plugin. So, many of the users go with the Yoast plugin as compared to All In One plugin which are shown in the figure below.
Yoast All in One
However, both the plugins have negative features.
Negative features of All In One Plugin
No-indexing sub-pages of Archives- Many plugins doesn’t support this feature. All In One plugin too!!
Google Authorship Management- This option is not available in this plugin. However, it is done using Yoast plugin.
Permalink Tweaks- Yoast provides useful URL/Permalink tweak. All In One doesn’t support.
Negative Features Of Yoast Plugin
Though it has many advantages, there are some disadvantages in this plugin.
Empty/broken “File Editor” page.
Insertion of “Plugin by Yoast” credits in the source code- Doesn’t include plugin output.
Once the plugin is uninstalled, category and permalink doesn’t work.
These are the negative features which I got, using these two plugins.
The Yoast plugin negatives can be fixed by resetting the permalinks to default and then switch them back to custom again. Above features clearly show that WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin is best compared to All In One plugin. But still AIO SEO plugin works best. Hence, in my opinion All in One SEO is not lacking in features, but it lack in terms of ease of use, not so user-friendly and design. So, I conclude Yoast is a winner because it has many extra features which SEO should have.
