Before I go on to discuss how to install and setup SEO yoast plugin I want to answer some questions related to wordpress SEO.
What is difference between Static Website or blogger blogs SEO and WordPress SEO?
As we know WordPress is totally automatic CMS or blog publishing network. It is very simple and easy to use. On the the other hand a static website does not work as easily as WordPress. Because in wordpress we do not need to write codes. everything works on its own. I mean wordpress plugins enable us to make changes and add new features by just clicking. But when we create a blog on blogger or a static website in HTML we have to code when we change or add new features.
In short WordPress SEO is easy and more powerful then blogger and static websites. But if you know SEO then you can rank your website even it is a static website. But then again it will be difficult and time consuming.
