Yoast SEO plugin features and benefits
Optimize for keywords, keyphrases and synonyms, related keywords and all word forms. In Yoast SEO you can enter the keyword or keyphrase you’d like your post or page to rank for in the search results. We then run a check on your content to check whether you’re using the keywords often enough – but not too often – and in the right spots. In Yoast SEO Premium, we take this one major step further. We will not only check for the keyword or keyphrase you enter, but we will analyze your text on all variations of that word or phrase.
Optimize for related keywords as well. In Yoast SEO Premium you have the option to add related keywords. This means, that when you want to optimize for pen, you can also optimize for paper in the same text. You will be able to reach a broader audience because of it. Yoast SEO doesn’t only help you boost your ranking in the search results, but also your morale!
Internal linking suggestions. Internal linking is extremely important because it helps search engines to understand your site structure. But adding links by hand is slow, tedious and downright annoying. With the internal linking feature in Yoast SEO Premium, that’s a thing of the past. This feature analyzes your text and suggests links to related posts – as you write. Taking all the hassle out of internal linking. Yeah, we’re pretty happy about it too.
Internal linking blocks. Having a clear site structure and proper internal links is crucial for your site’s usability, findability, and leads to a better understanding of your site by Google. The Yoast Internal Linking blocks make internal linking easy as ABC. By using the different smart Internal Linking blocks, you’ll be able to create a (hierarchical) structure in no time! Use the Subpages block to show the underlying pages of a page, the Siblings block to show the siblings of a page and the Related links block to add all the links Yoast SEO Premium suggests to your post.
Tell Google exactly what your page is about. By adding schema.org code to your pages in a new and innovative way, we are able to improve how Google, Pinterest and other platforms understand what your page is about. With Yoast SEO, you are now able to tell Google that your WebPage is an Article made by an Organization, and other combinations like that. This is the most convenient way for search engines to retrieve that information, and at this moment, Yoast is the only product or plugin offering this information this way! Others just tell Google it’s a webpage, an article, and that there’s a brand, without connecting it all together. This leaves a lot for Google to figure out itself. Only we tell the full story.
