    Yoast SEO is a WordPress plug-in designed to help you improve some of the most important on-page SEO factors–even if you aren’t experienced with Web development and SEO. This plug-in takes care of everything from setting up your meta titles and descriptions to creating a sitemap. Yoast even helps you tackle the more complex tasks like editing your robots.txt and .htaccess.
    Some of the settings may seem a little complex if you’re new to SEO and WordPress, but Yoast created a complete tutorial to help you get everything set up. And the team at WPBeginner made this handy video to help you get set up quickly.

What clients say about Premmerce

Great, free, useful plugin if you want your category link to be yourURL/category name and product link to be yourURL/product-name. Even skips parent category names. Thank you so much!

Hi All, We us this plugin for a big website we run. This plugin works with the famous WPML plugin. It’s removes the Product category base and the shop link in a Multilingual website. Must have for all WooCommerce users!!! Regards from a satisfied user.
Lian Perry
The Premmerce Filter is BY FAR the best product filter plugin available for WordPress. It works well out of the box with a great layout. It’s something that you would think would be so simple, but finding a great product filter tool sure wasn’t easy. Really love how well it integrates with the Premmerce Brands plugin as well. Thanks!!
