Why I put the Yoast SEO plugin on the first position. Huh?

Yoast SEO offers a lot of technical aspects for the post, like your writing style, vocabulary aspects, under the blog post, as mention analysis result.
Second thing, if you have massive pages, like ecommerce, the site, then you can apply meta-rule to all of the pages at the same time. This is new to me. I don’t have any giant site yet. You can also schedule your post to share on social media sites but make sure you have added your business profiles to Yoast plugins.
