Today, for you, all my readers all over the world, we are going to look in the Rank Math advanced Settings’ best tutorial. This lesson going to be based on what I really believe is WordPress best SEO Plugin. Rank Math Vs Yoast.
For quite some time now, I have really been a Yoast SEO plugin addicted user and never really found a justification to turn to rank math until around five months ago, when I finally landed to a thought of giving rank math a try. And right now, without faking words, I can tell you that Rank math is considerably better than Yoast. That might sound weird, I know. In view of the fact that Yoast is the most famous SEO Plugins for WordPress. Trust me, when you download and activate the Rank Math Plugin, in no time, you would say the same just as I have said it.
Set Up Rank Math

And I hope you like this post because it’s really going to be a very long one, but not a boring one, for sure. And before I start the tutorial, I would really like to mention that if you are presently using the Yoast plugin, I would highly suggest that you disable the plugin. Don’t uninstall it or delete it, just deactivate it.
And if you do not find any difficulties with Rank Math after installation and activation, you can continue to delete the Yoast Plugin, as it (Rank Math) works well for you. And if you’re satisfied with Math Bank, then you should go ahead and delete Yoast Plugin. But let’s get started without any further delay. So let’s Kick off the show.

What this does is that if anyone shares one of your posts on Facebook, and it happens that the post share on the social platform has no featured Image, what rank math does is that rank math would use the image you upload in there as your featured image.
