The SEO Framework ranks your website distinctively by enabling breadcrumbs for Google Search, and by automatically generating titles and descriptions according to Google’s guidelines. It also notifies Google, Bing, Yandex, and all connected search networks automatically of your website’s changes with its built-in sitemap.
Improves social sharing
The SEO Framework automatically supports the Open Graph and Twitter Cards protocols, this helps your posts stand out when shared on various social networks.

The SEO Framework is the only plugin that literally has pixel-perfect guidelines for Google Search. It took years of research to get this right, and this means you can manually optimize your pages without making critical mistakes.
Creates a beautiful overview
On your post overview pages, you’ll find color-coded guidelines. They tell you how to improve when hovering over it with your mouse.
Is completely accessible
We handpicked our color scheme so that people with any type of color-vision deficiency can distinguish these. Full keyboard-navigation support is also implemented.
Is always doing it right
The SEO Framework steers you from making significant and common SEO mistakes. It also leaves little room for you to mess up because the plugin already does everything for you. It also automatically prevents duplicated content mistakes by enforcing strict canonical URL rules, which is something many other plugins don’t do.
Follows best-practices and beyond
We built the plugin according to all WordPress coding guidelines. This means it neatly integrates with everything else made according to it, like bbPress and WooCommerce. This also means that the plugin is secure (there’s no record of exploits) and extensible.
Is built with developers in mind
We encourage other developers to add functionality to this plugin. We’ve done so ourselves, already, with our extensions. Feel free to join in on our efforts!

The small and hidden HTML comments can easily be disabled with the use of a filter or extension.

I didn’t know much about SEO (and maybe I still don’t) but this plugin makes it really easy to make sure all your bases are covered. Easy to use, very lightweight, non-intrusive, and informative. Best part is that if you ever have an issue, their support is FANTASTIC. They have gone above and beyond for me, with no reason to. Recommend recommend recommend.
