What our students say...

Rated 4,6 out of 5 stars by our 160,000 academy students!

I continue to be amazed at the thoroughness and usefulness of the information I receive when reaching out for help. I'm not a novice, but neither am I an expert, so when I've gone as far as I can to figure something out, I always reach out to Yoast to get things back to normal. What I also appreciate are the explanations of why the problem may have happened and how it was fixed so that in the future, I can apply that knowledge. I'm learning because of Yoast's customer service, and I appreciate your graciousness in sharing the in's and out's of using your program! I want you to know I highly recommend you to anyone looking for some SEO help - thanks again - I'm a customer for life!

Thanks for setting us on the right path Yoast! I’ve been designing websites for longer than I care to remember, but your blog is invaluable (and much appreciated) to keep abreast of the many changes Google seems to be making on an almost weekly basis. Your premium plugin has also been providing a much-needed refresher course on on-page SEO – thanks again!
