Yoast and All-In-One SEO Pack are by far the most popular SEO plugins forWordPress sites in Europe with each claiming a market share of 24%. Lipperhey, an SEO tool, used their on-page SEO scoring system to compare six differentWordPress plugins designed to help with SEO. You can see the results in the radar graph below.
