Linkody

For the explicit need of managing backlinks, Linkody is a good tool for this use. If you need additional search and website related verification tools, then another tool would be better, such as SEMRush or SpyFu.

Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins

For quick WordPress installations and configurations, Yoast is fast to set up and helps guide you through the common configuration options. It tries to be helpful whether you are coming at things from a technical or non-technical background. The emphasis on white hat SEO topics like improved content, keywords, descriptions, and titles is really appreciated by someone like me who doesn't utilize gray and black hat SEO tactics.
If you are an SEO expert, and you want finite control of each individual aspect of your site, Yoast, like most plugins, engines, tools, etc, hides a lot from you or gives you limited options. It really is meant for someone who wants to apply a general strategy to a whole site. That being said, you can manage Yoast per page on a WordPress site, but even then, I know some SEO experts prefer other tools that are meant for very specific purposes.
Overall, Yoast is the best plugin for SEO in WordPress when applied as a whole.

Pros

Linkody

  • The identification of new links is extremely helpful.
  • Comparison tool of backlinks and being able to look at competitors backlinks as well.
Jack Pennuto | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins

  • SEO Analysis: This is the best. As you create content, you get a real-time audit of what you're doing right and, more importantly, what you need to fix in order to make that content as optimized as possible.
  • Set up wizard: Once Yoast is installed, their wizard helps ensure it can get to work immediately at making your website more Google-able. Could not be simpler.
  • Free training: Just getting started with SEO or Yoast? They have free training videos that make it so easy to get up to speed and start optimizing your content.

Cons

Linkody

  • The tool is exclusively related to backlinks, so there are not any other features (which we are subscribed) to utilize on the platform.
  • There are periodic crawl errors, so we have occasions with reports filled with hundreds of backlink errors. Commonly these are corrected within a day, but we have to wait to act on the errors because there are so many it is difficult to identify what is a real error and which is a mistake of the Linkody tool.

Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins

  • Internal link counter - tool failed with other plugin capability and the "help" desk haven't actually helped...
  • Customer service/support - only offered for those who pay for a subscription but even when you have one they aren't exactly helpful (in my experience).
  • SEO notifications - it would be great to be able to specify which pages you want these for as currently, we get hundreds for irrelevant pages.

All the information is integrated on-screen while writing content and the scores and related score elements (i.e. paragraph/sentence length, transition words, keyphrase density, etc.) are all updated live as I write which I think is amazingly helpful.

Although I have not personally worked with Yoast support directly, they offer 24/7 support with Yoast Premium which gives peace of mind as we move forward. In addition, they offer free support forums and are also accessible by email if we ever have any issues. However, we are lucky that the plugin works incredibly well.

Alternatives Considered

Linkody

Linkody is more limited than SpyFu and SEMRush, as it is specifically related to backlinks management. On the other hand, if that is all you need and on you only have a handful of domains to manage, it is a relatively economical solution.
Jack Pennuto | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins

This is my go-to plugin for SEO. It is easy, and I trust Yoast will give me solid results. In a short time period, our website has seen measurable results in organic search traffic. Our previous website didn't use page level SEO tools to this extent. We are systematically updating each page using the Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin. We are pleased with the results

Return on Investment

Linkody

  • Linkody helped tremendously with disavowing uncredible links, which has helped to clean up our domain's reputation.
  • Linkody is a good, centralized way for us to identify changes and new links for competitors websites.
Jack Pennuto | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugins

  • Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugin along with other SEO investments we have made with our new website has extremely paid off on new business opportunity creation. Since August 2018 we have added over $100K of new business opps solely sourced from SEO searches on pages and posts that Yoast has helped us optimize.
  • Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugin saves our marketing team a lot of time. Since the plugin lives in WordPress and provides live tips we can make to the page or post, our team doesn't have to guess on what keyword, or meta-tag, or how many internal and external links a page or post should have using an additional platform. It is just conveniently there for us to use regularly.
  • Yoast Wordpress SEO Plugin cannot be the only piece of software your website relies on to obtain SEO optimization with search engines. It is a piece of the puzzle, and you can only maximize its' value by making sure your website is scam free, the code under the hood is healthy, and the load time and page weight is light.
