SEO in the basic WordPress?

I don't seem to get any help with search engine optimization with my basic WordPress account. Am I right about that, or am I missing some functionality that's there but just hard to find? I'm assuming you get no SEO tools unless you upgrade.

If I'm right about that...anybody know of any workarounds?

  • Seeing that you posted this a month ago, I'd have to guess you've figured out that all Wordpress.com plans include basic SEO tools with JetPack (a plugin that extends the functionality of Wordpress).

    Here's a link to the Jetpack support page speaking to SEO.

  • You can also use Yoast SEO. But yes, I think you have to upgrade from basic to get that. I think it's $13 a year?
