I read positive things about Rank Math and gave it a try. The problem is that it does not read and transfer the meta title and meta description fields from the Genesis SEO. The result is a site with about 750 posts that need individual attention.
I looked into the SEO Data Transporter plugin by StudioPress but it has not been updated for a couple of years and it does not populate Rank Math fields. Is there a way to move that data to Rank Math and continue tweaking it instead of starting from scratch?
I am using the Mai Success child theme on the latest Genesis Framework.

I will answer my own question in case others may be looking for a solution. This may not be the most elegant way, but it worked.
- Installed SEO Data Transporter plugin
- Installed Yoast plugin
- Used SEO Data Transporter to move the SEO data to Yoast
- Installed Rank Math while Yoast was active, it warned me to deactivate Yoast which I did
- Using its import feature, I imported SEO data from Yoast
- Deleted yoast
One thing worth noting is that the SEO I did using Genesis SEO scored 86/100 on Rank Math.

I was about to say the same I want to transfer Genesis SEO to Rank math but I am little bit confused can We transfer without loss of data, Need an honest Recommendations from your side if everything is transfer easily without any loss than we can do...February 10, 2022 at 10:43 am #504716
I was able to pass the Genesis SEO to Yoast, and Rank Math imported from Yoast no problem. I have also gone in the other direction, Yoast importing from Rank Math and SEO Data Transporter bringing everything back to Genesis.
As I said in my original message, my SEO efforts in Genesis translated to 86/100 in Rank Math. I have gone through updating quite a few posts and pages as an exercise and it moved up to 89. I am now back in Genesis SEO and wondering if there is any real benefit for me in going back to Rank Math. I do not sell or monetize anything on my site. I still get 75-125 visitors a day.
It is very time-consuming work to tweak things in Rank Math or probably in another SEO tool. Even then, when you get caught in improving your score on each post, you do what they tell you to do. For instance, add an external link to something. Lacking anything meaningful, I added links to some related concepts on Wikipedia. Why that is good for my SEO is still dubious in my mind.
That's my take on the matter and I shared it with the makers of RM as well. If you want to improve the site SEO, you need to have a plan, a goal, a market, and then build the pages to meet those.

I would like to add to my previous comment that going back from Rank Math to Genesis, via Yoast works but only for the Genesis SEO content. If you take it back to Rank Math again, you will need to go over many of your post and page SEO once more.
I should have been clearer.
