I searched and read some prior posts on this plug in.

Is there anything special I need to do to have this plug in work properly with the Element theme, or do I just install and activate?

Prior to installing SEO by Yoast, I had installed a XML BWP sitemap, and connected it up to Google and Bing.

The Yoast SEO has a sitemap feature built in.

Should I shut off the XML function on Yoast, or uninstall the BWP XML sitemap?

If I uninstall the BWP XML sitemap, do I just remove it from WP and then delete the map from Google and Bing, and then install the Yoast version?

Thanks

Hi, I can't speak for either of these plugins, but from my experience if dual functionality is used it could create conflicts or weigh down the system. My guess would be to just stick with Yoast SEO.

Element should work with it right out of the box.

Do you think the Yoast SEO has some benefit over what is stock on Element for SEO?

Casey thank you for all your follow up.

Yes, definitely. Yoast SEO is a pretty heft plugin. My favorite feature is the ability to preview the Google search result.
