|👍 Optimize for keywords, keyphrases, synonyms, related keywords and all word forms of those|
Help your page rank better by taking synonyms and related keywords into account. We’ll also show you how these are distributed over your page!
|❌ Only 1 keyword or keyphrase per page |
You might be missing out on search traffic for synonyms or related terms. Check manually if you use all synonyms and related words you’d like to rank for often enough in your text.
| 👍 NEW! Know when to update your most important pages!|
We’ll keep an eye on your most important pages and warn you when these haven’t been updated for six months. Google likes fresh content!
| ❌ Keep an eye on all pages manually|
You’ll need to check manually if there are any outdated pages that might need to be updated.
| 👍 Get real-time suggestions for internal links|
You get suggestions for links to other pages as you write. Google loves these internal links and might reward you with a better ranking.
| ❌ You have to look up related pages yourself|
Don’t forget to reserve extra time for looking up related pages to link to. For every single page you create … and all the current pages on your website.
| 👍 Preview your page in Google, Bing, Facebook and Twitter|
You’ll get a good idea of how your page may look in search results, and you get full control over how your page appears on Facebook and on Twitter. So you’re sure it convinces people to click through.
| ❌ No preview of your page in Facebook and Twitter|
You know what your page might look like in Google and Bing, but as for Facebook and Twitter? You can only guess and cross your fingers.
| 👍 Be sure your content can be found by search engines|
Get an overview of all pages that have no other pages linking to them. Search engines need at least one link to find and index a page, before they can show it in the search results.
| ❌ You have to search for these pages yourself|
You’ll need to check manually if there are links to all relevant pages on your website.
| 👍 We’ll ask what you want us to do with every deleted page|
This way, old pages are seamlessly redirected to new ones. So you keep both your visitors and Google happy.
| ❌ You have to create a redirect every time you delete a page|
If you forget to redirect, your visitors get stuck on a 404 page. And Google doesn’t like those “Page not found” messages.
| 👍 Gutenberg-ready!|
No matter how you like to write your posts in WordPress, we’ll make sure you’ll have a great Yoast SEO experience in both the classic editor and Gutenberg!
| ❌ In premium and in free|

We’ve removed the ads for you. We love your support! Thanks!
