How does Yoast help bloggers?
Below are a few aspects to watch out for so that you optimally use Yoast:
SEO Analysis in Yoast plug-in:
This plug-in will help you with some of the basic SEO analysis and content on your blog/post.
Google snippet preview:
One of its best features is the snippet review which shows a preview of your SEO title, Meta description, and the slug of your post as shown in the SERP’s.
You can also edit the snippet and write the Meta title and description of your post according to your wish. It also shows a preview of the snippet looks in a mobile and desktop view. This makes it easy for writers/bloggers to check the preview.
Content readability review:
A search engine has many parameters to rank your post/website and Yoast helps you by suggesting the word limit in a paragraph, percentage of transition words, readability level, passive voice usage and many more.
Cornerstone represents the most important article of all the posts that should not be missed by a reader and such articles would rank high in search engine.
These articles reflect your mission along with high-quality content and the potential keywords you would like to rank.
We have already discussed how sharing your content is very important. With Yost this becomes even easier.
With the Social share feature, you can customize the post title, description and image from the plug-in settings itself. However, If you leave this section blank, Yoast will take your SEO title and description.
These are some of the features that come with the free version of Yoast SEO plug-in and the premium option comes with many more features which will help you immensely with your SEO and make it easier for you to rank better.
