As you know, Rank Math offers a lot of powerful features – even in the version that’s freely available on the WordPress plugin repository – that are available only in the premium versions of other SEO plugins. And even our PRO version is budget-friendly, given that you can install them on as many sites as you’d like.
If you’ve decided to switch to All In One SEO Pack, we’re sorry to see you go! However, we’d like to give you a heads up that most of the features you’re experiencing with Rank Math will not be ported over during the migration to All In One SEO Pack.
In this knowledgebase article, we’ll briefly discuss the features you’ll be missing after this migration and how your SEO performance could be affected if you don’t ensure similar on-page settings on your site.
Migrating from Rank Math to All In One SEO Pack
You can use either the All In One SEO plugin’s Setup Wizard or their Import/Export feature to migrate your Rank Math data to the All In One SEO Pack.
Using Configuration Wizard
When you launch the All In One SEO Setup Wizard, click the Let’s Get Started button.
In the first step, you will be able to import data from your existing SEO plugins. Select Rank Math SEO and choose Import Data and Continue so that AIOSEO plugin will import your data.
You can also import Rank Math data when you navigate WordPress Dashboard > All In One SEO > Tools and choose the Import/Export tab.
Under Import Settings from Other Plugins section, choose Rank Math SEO from the drop-down list. Choose the All Settings checkbox and click Import.
You can notice that All In One SEO Plugin only imports your:
- SEO Settings
- Post Meta
- Term Meta
And it means that — when you migrate from Rank Math to All In One SEO Plugin, your Redirections data and Schema Markup will not be ported over.
Features You’ll Miss
Most of the features you’ve enjoyed with Rank Math is not available at All In One SEO Plugin, and some of them are:
1 Extensive Schema Markup Types
Rank Math supports over 20 pre-defined Schema Markup types and offers a user-friendly interface so that you can implement sophisticated Schema Markup without writing a piece of code.
2 Custom Schema Markup Builder & Schema Templates
Apart from the pre-defined Schema Markup, Rank Math lets you create any other Schema Markup Type with custom properties using the Custom Schema Generator.
You can save your custom Schema Markup as Schema Templates and reuse them inside your articles efficiently.
3 Dedicated Analytics Module & Rank Tracker
Rank Math has a dedicated Analytics module that pulls out all vital information from your Search Console and displays them right inside your WordPress dashboard with useful insights.
The Rank Tracker lets you keep track of your page’s search engine performance for specific keywords and lets you decide if you need to optimize the page further for better rankings.
4 Instant Indexing
Using Rank Math, you can submit your content with Google API Indexing and Bing API Indexing, ensuring your content gets indexed faster than the traditional methods. It is so easy that you need to set it and forget it, and Rank Math will automatically submit all your changes to the content and new articles to the search engines.
Rank Math lets you add redirections within your dashboard without needing any additional plugin to perform this function.
Rank Math lets you add Breadcrumbs to your website, which might not be offered even by your themes. In fact, Rank Math adds the corresponding Schema Markup by itself so that your breadcrumbs are even visible in the search engine results.
7 Client Site Management
Managing your client sites’ SEO becomes easy if you’re a PRO / Business / Agency user of Rank Math. You can check all the analytics data of your connected websites, right inside the Rank Math account area, without having to visit each site to check their performance.
8 About and Mentions Schema
About and Mentions Schema is a unique feature available only in Rank Math. You can mark up your links inside the content with About and Mentions Schema to help search engines understand and relate different topics.
SEO Impacts on Migration
When you migrate from Rank Math to All In One SEO plugin, be sure to figure out a way or install additional plugins as some data that affect your website’s SEO will not be ported over during this migration.
1 Schema Markup Will Be Removed
When you migrate to All In One SEO plugin, your Schema Markup will not be imported. All In One SEO plugin offers some pre-defined Schema Markup implementation in their premium versions; however, If you are using custom Schema Markup inside your articles, you will not be able to find them on your website’s source code once you deactivate Rank Math.
2 Redirections Will Not Function
As soon as you deactivate Rank Math, the redirections you’ve set up using Rank Math plugin will not function anymore. Since All In One SEO plugin does not offer that feature either, your visitors and search engines will be greeted with 404 errors when they visit URLs that are supposed to be redirected, unless you install any additional plugin and import your existing redirections.
Note: Rank Math does not hold responsibility for any data loss during migration to All In One SEO Plugin.
