NEW! Optimize for keywords, phrases and synonyms, related keywords and all tenses
At Yoast SEO you can enter unique keywords or phrases that you want to get your post or page rank in the search results. We then run a check on your content to check if you use keywords often enough - but not too often - and in the right place.
In Yoast SEO Premium, we take this big step further.
We will not only check the keywords or passphrases you entered, but we will analyze your text on all variations of that word or phrase.
If the key phrase is "room decorating ideas" and the synonyms are "apartment decorating ideas" all possible word forms for each word are counted: 'apartment', 'room', 'room', 'room', 'decorate', 'decoration', 'decorated', 'ideas', etc. In this way, you really optimize your text.
With this addition at Yoast SEO Premium, we can guarantee that there are no other WordPress plugins that are close to how Google will see your text *!
* We continue to work on improving this for all available languages
Optimize for related keywords too
- Only premium
In the free version, you can only set 1 focus keyword or passphrase. That means you have to choose what to optimize.
At Yoast SEO Premium, you have the option to add more related keywords. This means that when you want to optimize your pen, you can also optimize the paper in the same text. You will be able to reach a wider audience because of it.
In both versions, Yoast SEO not only helps you improve your ranking in search results, but also your passion!
Internal linking advice - Premium only
Internal links are very important because they help search engines to understand the structure of your site.
But adding links by hand is slow, boring and really annoying. With the internal link feature at Yoast SEO Premium, it is a thing of the past.
This feature analyzes your text and suggests links to related posts - when you write. Take all the hassle out of internal links. Yes, we are also quite happy about that.
Preview your page on Google
Thanks to the trailer editor, you can see through the eyes of Google users: what does your post or page look like in the search results? And on a mobile screen? Did you click on a link like that?
In the free version, you can only preview your links on Google, not on Facebook or Twitter.
Preview your page on social media - Premium special
Check what your page looks like if you share it on Facebook or Twitter. Does the title match and the image matches? Will it stand out? If you want people to click, your social media sharing must see that part.
If you don't want to think about it for each post, just set the template. The Yoast SEO WordPress plugin allows you to set it for all types of pages.
Readability check: increase the chances of people reading your page
Online readers don't read - they scan. Just as you might do now.
So, you have to write short sentences, add subtitles and use conjunctions.
Do you think it's much harder than it sounds? Do not worry. Yoast SEO will tell you what to do, based on scientific research on readability, such as the Flesch Reading Ease score.
Full control of your breadcrumbs
Your breadcrumbs can be messy for several reasons. Some posts may be listed in several categories and appear with different breadcrumbs, for example.
With Yoast SEO you can set the main categories for your posts, and determine the taxonomy for each page on your WordPress site.
No duplicate content: avoid confusing Google
Your website can display the same content at various URLs, which might confuse Google: this is called the problem of duplicate content.
Yoast SEO accomplishes this by letting you show one URL as the original - what the technicians like to call canonical links. That way, Yoast SEO ensures that your content is always found under the URL you want. Simple.
Works with every WordPress editor
If you are the initial adapter of the Gutenberg editor, Yoast SEO will guide you in optimizing your posts. If you choose to use a classic editor, we will help you improve your posts.
No matter how you want to write your post or page on WordPress, we have helped you.
Technical matters in the background
Search engine robots crawl the web and create indexes. And there's nothing wrong with helping them a little.
Yoast SEO launches a red carpet for search bots, making it very easy to browse your site and find everything.
Basically, the WordPress plugin handles all technical things for you.
But hey, if technical fiddling is your thing - more power for you. With Yoast SEO, you can edit your robots.txt and .htaccess files, clean your URL and create and update your Sitemap.
