Plugin developer Notes: ▼

WordPress out of the box is already technically quite a good platform for SEO, this was true when Joost wrote his original WordPress SEO article in 2008 (and updated every few months) and it’s still true today, but that doesn’t mean you can’t improve it further! This plugin is written from the ground up by Joost de Valk and his team at Yoast to improve your site’s SEO on all needed aspects. While this Yoast SEO plugin goes the extra mile to take care of all the technical optimization, more on that below, it first and foremost helps you write better content. Yoast SEO forces you to choose a focus keyword when you’re writing your articles, and then makes sure you use that focus keyword everywhere.

Write better content with Yoast SEO: ▼

Using the snippet preview you can see a rendering of what your post or page will look like in the search results, whether your title is too long or too short and your meta description makes sense in the context of a search result. This way the plugin will help you not only increase rankings but also increase the click through for organic search results.

Page Analysis: ▼
The Yoast SEO plugins Page Analysis functionality checks simple things you’re bound to forget. It checks, for instance, if you have images in your post and whether they have an alt tag containing the focus keyword for that post.

Technical WordPress Search Engine Optimization: ▼
While out of the box WordPress is pretty good for SEO, it needs some tweaks here and there. This Yoast SEO plugin guides you through some of the settings needed, for instance by reminding you to enable pretty permalinks.

Meta & Link Elements: ▼
With the Yoast SEO plugin you can control which pages Google shows in its search results and which pages it doesn’t show. By default, it will tell search engines to index all of your pages, including category and tag archives, but only show the first pages in the search results.

XML Sitemaps: ▼
Yoast SEO plugin has the most advanced XML Sitemaps functionality in any WordPress plugin. Once you check the box, it automatically creates XML sitemaps and notifies Google & Bing of the sitemaps existence.

What You Can Use WordPress For: ▼
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination. (And tech chops.)

    I am wondering if it worth to install this plugin. Does it affect page
    loading? Can you tell me what's point to use Yoast plugin? Right now,
    without any SEO plugin, including Yoast SEO plugin, in google I can see
    google listed several sentences from my product description contents, as
    here you described as Meta Description.

    If I install this Yoast SEO plugin and put several sentences in the so-called Meta Description, so google will just pick contents from the meta description? If someone search a keyword which I didn't put it in my meta description content, but in the middle of my product description. Does that mean I will miss the chance for this keyword?

    Right now, Google may pick up keyword from any part of my product description contents as long as I have that keyword. So, what's the point to install this SEO plugin?

    For everyone who don't see all of this options:

    Go to Features – "Advanced settings pages" and than enable it. Than you will see all of this options :)

    Fantastic !! The place where I got lost was trying to get back into the webmaster tools to add my sitemap. Still don't understand how to get back to the dashboard? Maybe it did it automatically? Could use some help. Thnx

    I don't have "onpage seo" showing up in my wordpress backoffice when I follow this video for yoast. You video title lead me to believe your content is current, have they removed the onpage option or what?

  6. Rowan Morrissy

    Has anyone tried to set this up recently? My homepage (7:29) looks completely different and there isn't a link to view all the Yoast Info hometab.
