    I still stick with Yoast SEO Premium. Tried switching to Rank Math several times but it has many errors.

    I switched initially to RankMath due to the added features that Yoast lacks but now I feel like you are forced to buy credits. It’s almost like they hook you.

    I have also had some posts rank on the blog that didn’t have so many media or external links on them so it’s now a bit confusing to see that this tool Content Al recommends so much. Not sure if I will keep it or not

    The new “Rank Math’s Content AI feature” shows a TOTALLY different score than the “traditional” SEO score, so one of those has to be wrong. And, by all means, it is the “AI feature” that shows totally illogical suggestions. You have to see to believe. And, talking about illogical stuff, a paid plan like mine receives only 25 credits… for life! Unless, of course, if you upgrade to a really, really expensive plan. For me, as a client, Rank Math marketing is dead. And I won’t renew my plan.

    This looks like a neat tool. But, as you point out Justin, this kind of functionality should be used as a guide. It can be a real stretch to write content that matches all of these recommendations.

    I’ve had clients who were obsessed with getting that “green light”. It can end up hindering the final product. Yes, you’ve made the plugin nice and happy, but what about the humans who are actually reading the content?

      “…you’ve made the plugin nice and happy, but what about the humans…”

      Exactly! This kind of feature can be a distraction. Using a straightforward plugin like SEO Framework in conjunction with “Writing for Humans” is a common sense strategy for growing an audience over time. Worrying about pleasing algorithms for extra clicks is perhaps not worth it and definitely not very enjoyable, if you were to ask me.

        I can see these features being help in some areas. For example, they can serve as a reminder to use headings or avoid run-on sentences. But so often they’re not sold that way. They’re promoted as a solution for high rankings.

        And you’re so right – it’s no fun trying to write to please an algorithm! It sucks the creativity right out of the process.

    Very happy Rank Math user, switched from Yoast almost 2 years ago and never looked back. I find this new feature quite exciting, but am confused by the credits system, which is keeping me from buying the pro version.

    The only way to get more credits after using up your contingent seems to be to upgrade your plan. After the Agency plan, there’s nowhere else to go, so once you use up your 750 credits, it looks like the Content AI will just become unusable. Quite odd :-/

    Rank Math is the BEST plugin out there!

    They have always innovated and once I tried them a year back, I have moved all my client sites to them.

    Long gone the days of plugins like Yoast & AIO.

    I wish they had a package with more AI credits. Upgrading to the Agency plan is not an option for me at this time.

      Tried Rank Math since v 1.0 several times, ran again and again into various show stopper bugs, expecially with their filters and action hooks or with custom roles and capabilities, to me it always has been unusable for anything more serious than a simple one admin blog or a basically static 5 page company site, too bad.

    Rank Math is a quite capable SEO plugin and the temptation to use the credit system is compelling. But, adding fees for paid clients is counterproductive. Credit ceilings limit creativity!
