How much do you rely on WordPress?

  1. I use WordPress on ALL of my sites.

    58.3%
  2. I use WordPress on some of my sites

    25.0%
  3. I only use WordPress on only one site.

    8.3%
  4. Screw WordPress, I use another web building platform.

    8.3%

    1. W3 Total Cache - not needed if your site is properly configured
    2. Yoast / All in One SEO Plugin - one of the worst perfoming SEO plugins
    3. Rich Snippets - pretty much a waste of time
    4. Google Analytics by Monster Insights - why? There are better analytics and in any case they won't improve ranking
    5. Elementor - bad advice. Elementor along with all other page builders result in poor code which google does not like

    Yes true it won't help improving ur search traffic. But u can use light theme and AMT to improve performance which is the primary factor to get the ranking

    @cartechnewz What's AMT?

    Or do you mean AMP? If that is the case AMP does not help ranking.

    No, WordPress platform provides many features, plugins, etc.…to optimize and to build a search engine friendly website, but WordPress does not really help to improve search engine rankings.

    No, WordPress offers a theme that can be used to give your website a strong foundation. However, instead of choosing a topic that is beautiful and aesthetically appealing, choose a topic that is optimized for search engines. An SEO optimized theme has two main things namely speed and code. A well-written theme with the latest SEO best practices guarantees that the Google bot will land through the source code and find the appropriate code.

    I am a web developer & a digital marketer too. For your question its yes from my side. WordPress helps improving search rankings, but most importantly the plugins like yoast seo n others are really helpful for improving search rankings. You can choose WordPress if you are familiar with.
