The best SEO plugin for wordpress in 2018

Free Effective SEO is part of what you need to drive traffic

 

I am having a love affair with my new favorite plugin!

I asked my coach what's the best SEO plugin for WordPress in 2018, and he turned me on to Squirrly…Optimizing SEO…for free. My Mentor let me in on a tool that is absolutely amazing to work with, to optimize my content so that it gets ranked high, high, high in the search engines! At the same time, this tool makes sure to advise of being reader-friendly…no keyword packing, no reader turnoffs from over-optimization!  What a guard-dog – and it's free! I am so enjoying using Squirrly that I had to tell you about it, dear reader.

First of all, this Best SEO Plugin for WordPress in 2018 is FREE

Now, a question you may be asking is, why are good plugins free?  Does that make them worth what you pay for them…that is, nothing! No, here's the deal. The entry level plugin is free. It lets you do the basics…it lets you explore. You can optimize up to 5 posts a month with the free version, on one website.  You can do limited keyword searches. It's a good start, and a way to check it out to see if this is a tool that you want to use, that will help you, and will be worth investing in.  It really, truly is the BEST SEO plugin for WordPress in 2018!

There are Upgrades Available

The reason credible quality tools are offered in free versions is that, when you try it for free, and see its value, many will upgrade – then the company makes money. The free version is a loss-leader to get you in their door… they are counting on the quality of their product selling itself to you. And it does…or did for me! You see, I have more than one website.  I also do regular daily updates on my posts and new posts, and want to do keyword searches and optimization for each one of them.  So I opted for the second level of Squirrly to meet my needs.

NEWS FLASH!!!  Squirrly now has a new monthly subscription program to set up and plan all your social media posts in one efficient sitting!

WHY Do I Love This Plug-In?

Not that long ago, internet users still needed to optimize their sites so that readers looking for information or products they offered would find them.  To do that, they had to go through a LOT of steps…

  • A Keyword Search engine to find keywords
  • Content writing tools
  • Keyword testing to see if optimized or over-optimized

and so many more to get what you get with Squirrly.  In fact, if you had all the capabilities that you get with this one tool, in the old ways and days, it would have cost hundreds a month. Instead you can get Squirrly for no cost at all…or for under $30 a month if an upgrade is what you need.  (There are more costly upgrades, but I'm assuming if you're reading this post, you are newer to blogging, and have no need for more – at least until you've grown your business a lot!)

I'm have a blast using Squirrly…it's the best SEO plugin for WordPress in 2018, or any recent year…

I love creating a post, tweaking to optimize, and seeing my optimization go to 100%.  I love finding keywords that are being searched a lot, have few posts on them being written and yet are easy to get ranked.  I can find all that out with Squirrly.

It's my new favorite tool.  Check it out for no cost today.  Please let me know how you like it!

    Thank you for this informative post, Annie. I enjoy using Squirrlly. I’m still in the learning process but sure like what I’ve experienced so far. I’ll most likely move up to the paid version very soon, in order to reap even more benefits to this easy-to-use plug-in. Your explanation helped me to understand it on a deeper level. Thank you.

    All the best,
    Sue

    • Hi Sue,
      It is fun using Squirrly, isn’t it. I know how very useful even the free version is. You will absolutely love the extra guidelines and green lights as well as seeing your optimization % climb as you write – or edit prior posts.
      Annie

  • Orion says:

    What a fun and great article to read Annie, you are right Squirrly is a great plugin, I am using the free version still, and am looking forward to invest in getting the full version – I can feel how much it will benefit me – just as it did you and many more!
    Thanks for a thorough review on this.
    All the best Orion

    Annie,
    I also was introduced to Squirrly last month. I have found that the free version was working quite well for me so far. It has given me a few good ideas when I want to update old post so that they will be more SEO friendly. When you get all green boxes it gives you a great feeling.
    I have not upgraded, what are the advantages of paying for the premium version. I only have one site that I work on daily.
    John

    • Hi John,
      I am really glad your experience with Squirrly is so great. The free version has a lot of benefits, certainly. And it teaches more about optimization for any other posts you do, too.
      The paid version allows a few things: more long-tail keyword searches, more posts to optimize each month, and more websites. You also get a lot more detail to getting your green lights for 100% optimization. If you want to optimize more than 5 posts a month with Squirrly, you need the upgrade. If 5 or fewer works for you, then the free version will fill your needs, I’m sure.
      Thanks for visiting.

    Hello Annie, I also am having a love affair with Squirrly. So I am so excited to read this. It so helps to be working on a post and see in live time what needs to be worked on to promote SEO. I am learning so much just using this plugin.
    And i so love when both the lights turn green and the light flashes and its says 100% optimized. Whew..it makes me feel so successful, I am sure it does for you too!
    And if master Afiliate Marketer Neil Patel recommends it.. welll that says so much doesn’t it?
    Thanks for sharing this amazing plugin. It is beyond fun and helping us to become more expert at using SEO.
    In peace and gratitude,ariel

    • Hi Ariel,
      Thank you for sharing your great experience with Squirrly…those green lights are great encouragers, aren’t they?
      Yes, when the premier internet success icons recommend a plog in, it makes sense to listen to them!

  • SHWANA says:

    I must agree with you, Annie, Squirrly is an awesome SEO tool. I have been using it for about 1 month now. Initially, I think the free trial had more options and was optimizing my post for more and when the free trial was over it went to the free version. Regardless, I do like the ease of use. I have not even touched on the social media features. Thank you for this post, until now I didn’t know that Squirrly had a referral program. I do have a question. Do you know what benefits Squirrly has for social media because I do see something related to that on the bottom of my post page?

    • Hi Shwana, Squirrly gives you a weekly audit with specific information on how to boost your SEO with backlinks, social media and other actions that you can take. It is a great help.

      I hope you continue to use it and benefit.
      Annie

  • Juliet says:

    Thanks Annie,
    This is a great post about Squirrly. I have not yet used it, but after reading your post about it’s good quality and how helpful it is, I think I’ll give it a try!

  • Wayne says:

    Annie, loved your post here about Squirrly. I have been thinking about updating some of my older posts. Sounds as if this would be great to use.
    A person probably couldn’t go wrong to use the free version for updating older posts. Be a good way to see how it works and then decide if I want the paid version.
    Thanks for the information. Talk soon!

  • […] Squirrly is my go-to long tail keyword tool to use, and to guide me as I write so that I get 100% optimized.  I love seeing those green lights go on. […]

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
