If we move to users trust we can count it via the number of downloads and users reviews, below are the stats when I published this post.

Download Stats


Here we can see that Yoast have increasing number of downloads each day but overall it have less download as it is released long after all in one SEO plugin which is the only reason for more download of All in one SEO.


You can judge that Yoast have more positive reviews than All in one SEO which speaks its worth.


Yoast is winner here but this doesn’t mean that it is complete as there are many features only available in All in one SEO so you should use the plugin that fulfil your need, for new bloggers I would recommend Yoast SEO plugin as it is simple and easier to use. Don’t use both plugins at he same time as your site may be penalised by Google.
