What are the most important plugins you're using for your woo store?

I am able to to put Title, Description and Keyword in Products using yoast. I haven't noticed it slowing down any of the sites I created either. Also creates a robot.txt file in a single click, sitemaps with a click, htaccess control and I don't think I would actually want description or keyword generation as I'd rather write rich, unique content/keywords. Honestly I think its just a matter of personal preference more than anything as they both seem to get the job done.
The main problem with YOAST is that it does not work with Woocommerce product descriptions without a paid addon. Which for an eCommerce site is a big minus. YOAST is designed for Blog sites. That's why I switched to it's number 1 competitor, Woo friendly, All in One SEO. There's really no better choice for an eCommerce site between it and Yoast. It also handles, site maps, robots.txt, htaccess, Open Graph tags, bad bots blocker and a couple of other goodies.

Keyword and description generation are based on the content of the article/product descriptions so are completley relevant and give a great time saving head start. It can also be disabled in the settings. But editing pre-existing content is way faster than writing from scratch.

Why do you think you need a paid extension for yoast to recognize product descriptions? I use the free version of yoast and it clearly works with woocommerce product descriptions, in fact when you activate the plugin it asks you to setup according to woo. I don't know how long its been since you've use yoast, but at least the last year it has had these capabilities. Below is a yoast result from a product page, it has the capabilities to everything it would on a normal page. Screenshot (23).png

Ahhh, yea that is the downside of Yoast is you need the paid extension to use more than 1 focus keyphrase. I haven't actually tried All in One, but I have heard good things about it as well from both reviews directly and most of the 'Yoast vs AllinOne' are pretty neck in neck (though I am sure each blogger is a paid affiliate of each). Blackhatworld has given praises to both plugins though and usually where I go to ask questions anyways lol.

Hmm. Not quite enough to stop me using All in One SEO, which has built in Woo support (unlike Yoast) ... and auto description and keyword generation, which can be edited but saves heaps of time from writing it all from scratch. Plus it's built in robots.txt, sitemaps, bad bots guard, htaccess control and Open Graph management ... it's a keeper for me. :)

... and no ads.
Is All in one SEO a free version or paid? Yoast has woo, but it is so expensive. UGH

That is going to depend on how you cache your site. You can have a bit of well-coded plugin with caching and get your load time around 500-700ms. The plugins are not useless, the biggest problem I see with most is they use bloated, heavy themes. Instead, use themes like generate press or Astra Pro and customize. That keeps the base theme light and quick. Then use the plugins you need for your business and you load times will be fast.

Wrong, I do not believe that anyone can run a Woocommerce store smoothly with all these plugins on a standard server, cache or not.
