WordPress SEO by Yoast vs All in One SEO Pack Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of WordPress SEO by Yoast and All in One SEO Pack.

To find the cheaper SEO plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for WordPress SEO by Yoast or All in One SEO Pack (as well as other alternatives).

Price WordPress SEO by Yoast All in One SEO Pack
Minimum (1 Site) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 247.00 USD 39.00 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 907.00 USD 0.00 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.

Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.

About Thomas Höfter

I am a WordPress plugin developer from Germany. Some might know me from my WP Robot plugin or one of my free plugins but most don't know me at all. To change that you can write me a message or find me on Google+.


  1. I have used Yoast SEO plugin for my both websites. Very easy to implement. It is the best in the market.

  2. Right Now WordPress SEO is known as Yoast SEO. And according to me Yoast SEO is the best WordPress Plugin because this plugin provide more features like data importing from webmaster tool, breadcrump navigation etc. Many users use both of them plugin on their websites and blogs.

  3. Very helpful, thank you Thomas (y)

  4. Nice comparison. I have been reading mixed reviews about Yoast and All in One. I am currently on All in One and will try Yoast once just to check which one works better for my site.

  5. Nice comparison for two plugins.

    I used to use All in One Seo Pack, but now a week ago, I moved to SEO by Yoast. Personally I like SEO by Yoast.

  6. Thx for the article!

    I think you might want to update the Price Comparison Table (I’m writing this 29/02/2016).

    The total price of All in One CEO is not $39 – this is only the “one off price”.
    You have to pay additional $49 per year for “recurring subscription for support and updates”. I.e. the first year including the purchase will be $88, then you pay $40 every year. Other options for the subscription: $10/month, $35/6 month.
    See: http://semperplugins.com/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack-pro-version/

    The purchase of Yoast includes 1 year subscription: $69 for a single site.
    (They have “5-site price”, 10-site price” etc also.)
    So the first year (for a single site and also several sites) is cheaper with Yoast.
    But the future costs for the licence upgrade is hard to tell, because it’s obviously not a “public” info : https://yoast.com/licenses/

    1. Thanks Maria, the data in the article is older and so prices might have changed. I will look into updating the comparison soon.

  7. I like all in one SEO because the yoast free version has a lot of limitations.

  8. I use All in One in 1 site and Yoast in 2nd site. I see the second which is relatively new site has better visibility in google despite of lower pagerank.
    Is there any statistical research I can do between by sites to find which is better plugin. Please suggest me.

  9. Thanks for the great post Thomas. Although I was hoping for a quick summery of which you personally think is best and why 😉

    I noticed that with Yoast it looks like there is no way to add a meta description for custom taxonomy archives even though it warns me that I need to add them.

    So I went to the support forum and see that the last update has been a disaster!

    I’m already locked into Yoast now since I’ve got custom code for the breadcrumbs and taxonomy descriptions.

    I’m wondering wether it is worth switching to All in One and re-writing this code in the light of the new Yoast update?

  10. I started using Yoast SEO plugin couple of months ago, and ever since then my post has disappear from Google search result page. The plugin’s sitemap is bad to the extent that both Google and Bing rejected it. I think All in one is better compare to Yoast.

    1. I have been suspecting exactly what you say for some time now, about Yoast and I have used this plugin – free – since 2011 with many websites of my own and those I have built. I have not used All in One SEO but I am certainly not going to use Yoast again, after today’s update by Yoast. I have also lost ranking with images as well and I don’t think the serps like Yoast for some reason, we don’t yet know but I think we are going to find out something soon. So I think we need to watch this space and I predict, from what I have seen, Yoast is on his way out unless he changes radically.

  11. Thank a lot for review ..but I think at all Yoast plugin is the best

  12. Without a single doubt, WordPress SEO by Yoast is one of the best optimization plugins that have ever been produced. To rank highly in the search engines, an internet marketer using WordPress will need to configure it correctly and then find the most useful plugins that will aid him in that task. Although there are varieties to choose from, the WordPress SEO by Yoast is among the best that you will ever come across.

  13. I have now all in one plugin but i wonder if i use yoast plugin witch one is better!

  14. Many site use yoast but some site with good result also use all in one .

  15. I know a lot of people like Yoast’s plugin. But this one was around long before then. It’s been helping WP sites rank well for many years, and is still the best in my opinion. I’ve seen a number of side-by-side tests with Yoast’s plugin that prove All in One SEO is still the best and will help your site rank well, with the least effort. Great plugin. I use the Pro version on over 50 client’s sites.

    1. I completely agree with you. I find All in One to be far superior to Yoast in so many ways. Redirection is a better redirect plugin along with 404 to 301. I just tried giving Yoast a shot yesterday on a new client site that had it already and it failed to generate an XML sitemap. All in One’s didn’t. Never seen that before.

      I’m going off of free versions.

      Also I find many comparisons of the chart above to be completely misleading.

      It’s crazy how skewed reviews are towards Yoast.

      1. Vincent, what exactly do you find misleading about the chart in my comparison? Please note that both the Yoast and All In One team reviewed the data in the listing and were able to make corrections for any features I had missed, which were then added to the chart. It is not my intention at all to mislead or get people to use Yoast.
