Should I have either one of them?

by abhibangal 3 replies
I am currently using two SEO plugins, of course, being ignorant about them. First I installed "Add Meta Tags" and later I got "Yoast". Now the problem is that it is creating confusion as there are duplicate meta descriptions and keywords.
I ran an analysis to find this out. The analysis is reading the older description - not that by Yoast. I want to continue with the latter.
So should I just keep one of them and deactivate the other? Will it have any bad impact on the site if "Add Meta Tags" is associated with anything else? Please help me.

  • Yes, you should use only one plugin, also stop manually adding meta description to the pages if you are using plugin.

      Yes, now I am using only one plugin and the error no longer shows. Actually I had just deactivated the other plugin and kept Yoast on.
      But I guess, it is important to add meta description for each article separately, because the targeted keywords are different each time. Please correct me if I am wrong.
