Content SEO made easier by WordPress, Yoast and Linkdex

Linkdex LogoIt has always been my goal to make content SEO as easy as can be, and to make people writing content perform the necessary actions instead of someone else fixing up after them. Good SEO for a site consists of set of technical requirements, a good site structure and then the most important thing: well optimized content. Preferably lots of it. Today, by releasing the Linkdex Page Analysis integration into my WordPress SEO plugin, we’ve come one step closer to that goal of making Content SEO easy.

So what is it: full content SEO analysis functionality. The WordPress SEO box, with the snippet preview you’ve come to know, has a new tab, titled Page Analysis. This tab features a report of the content for the current post, check what it looks like (click for larger versions):

Page Analysis Tab that helps you with Content SEO

And one that’s a bit more positive:

Page Analysis - Content SEO well done!

Page Analysis – Content SEO well done!

What’s in that page analysis tab that helps me with Content SEO?

As you can see, there are three different types of messages: warnings, notices and messages. The messages are in the bottom, as they tell you stuff you probably don’t have to do anything about. The notices are above them, they can range from saying “No images appear in this page, consider adding some as appropriate” or, if you do have images but didn’t use your focus keyword in the alt tag it’ll say: “The images on this page do not have alt tags containing your keyword / phrase”.

Warnings are messages like “The keyword / phrase does not appear in the page title.” Another useful message: “You’re linking to another page with the keyword you want this page to rank for, consider changing that if you truly want this page to rank.”

Other messages can concern the meta description, the page title, your use of headings, the number of links, the length of your post or page’s copy, the keyword density and the Flesch Reading Ease score for the page. The latter score determines whether your page is easy to read, by checking for long sentences and words with a lot of syllables. This feature currently only works properly for the English language.

You’ll probably understand why I think that such feedback will help you write better (optimized) content and thus makes content SEO easier.

This seems to good to be true, what’s the catch?

Let me be clear, even though this is a collaboration between Linkdex and myself, the new content SEO functionality featured in the plugin is 100% free and will remain free and open source. There is no catch. As said, this feature is free for all users of the WordPress SEO plugin, doesn’t require registration or anything else and doesn’t send your data to other servers. All the analysis is done right there within your blog. As you can see in the screenshot above there’s some minor promo for Linkdex underneath the box, which is an awesome service, and if you sign up for Linkdex using one of those links, or the ones in this post for that matter, I get a little bit of money.

This release also features a set of updates to the General tab of the WordPress SEO box. The snippet preview has some enhancements, mostly relating to properly using ellipsis when the content is too long, as well as several JavaScript improvements. The focus keyword box, moved up in the previous release because it is so important for all these content SEO analyses, has gotten a new Google Suggest implementation using jQuery and jQuery UI that is far more robust than the previous one. Check it out:

Snippet Preview with updated Focus Keyword Suggest

Lastly, there are some new features in the indexing area, for instance allowing you to noindex, follow all paginated pages in taxonomies, so you can have /cat/seo/ indexed, but /cat/seo/page/2/ noindex, followed. In all, I think this is a killer update. There’s one thing left to tackle, the way XML sitemaps are built. It works but I’m not happy with it, once I’ve finished that the plugin will come out of beta. For now, enjoy version 0.3, and let me know in the comments what you think! Bonus points for the person who guesses the focus keyword of this article :)

So, go grab the plugin!

    …with the snippet preview you’ve come to know..
    I’d even go as far as ‘come to love’ ;)

    Great addition Joost, thanks!

  2. KeithBy Keith on 9 May, 2011

    Another fantastic update Yoast. Focus Keyword has got to be “Content SEO”?

  3. EdBy Ed on 9 May, 2011

    Another wonderful addition to the best WordPress SEO tool around, even if Linkdex is telling me there are no images in the post when there are several.

  4. Frank EvesBy Frank Eves on 9 May, 2011

    Wow, thanks Joost, content evaluation is a very valuable addition. Another reason why WordPress SEO is my favourite SEO plugin.

  5. NetAgenceBy NetAgence on 9 May, 2011

    Once again an amazing contribution. I’ll be glad to help in any way even if I’m not sure what I could contribute apart from French translation ! As for the KW I’d underline content seo and wordpress seo, but maybe even more importantly “made easier” which is what your WP plugins are really about, for beginners as well as advanced SEO guys. Thanks again.

  6. nicolas giraudonBy nicolas giraudon on 9 May, 2011

    Yoast, what I love with you is that you never stop improving your plug-ins ! Difficult for the competition to catch up … Also very friendly to use for non developers.

    Thanks for the thousands of hours spent on this ! Cheers, Nicolas

    Great addition Joost :)

  8. FnorBy Fnor on 9 May, 2011

    Wow, thank you Yoast! This seems a wonderful update. Although I have to report some problems before it can work properly on my blogs. I think your plugin doesn’t handle accents properly.

    I mainly blog in French, so I use accents all the time. Here are the problems I encounter :

    First, in the good old tab the plugin doesn’t detect the keyword ine the url if it is accented. For example if my keyword is “solfège” and my slug is “solfege”, the plugin says the keyword isn’t in the url. I think you should treat the non-accented keyword in the url.

    Then, the new tab as a lot more problem with accents. Here is an exemple with this page and the keyword solfège.

    I got this on the “Page Analysis” tab :

    1. The keyword doesn’t appear in the first paragraph of the copy, make sure the topic is clear immediately. (but it is in the first paragraph!)

    2. You have not used your keyword / keyphrase in any heading in your copy. (it is in almost every heading)

    3. The keyword density is 0.00%, which is a bit low, the keyword was found 0 times. (the keyword is counted 7 times by the main tab)

    4. The keyword / phrase does not appear in the URL for this page. If you decide to rename the URL be sure to check the old URL 301 redirects to the new one! (I already told you about that)

    5. The page title contains keyword / phrase, but it does not appear at the beginning; try and move it to the beginning. (again, the keyword is at the beginning)

    6. The specified meta description is over 156 characters, reducing it will ensure the entire description is visible. The available space is shorter than the usual 155 characters because Google will also include the publication date in the snippet. (the main tabs counts 152 characters, but this new tab count each accent twice, due to utf-8 I think)

    Sorry for posting such a big comment. I hope it will help you improving your WordPress SEO plugin :)

      Thanks! Just submitted it in my own new bug tracker :)

      • Yassen YotovBy Yassen Yotov on 10 May, 2011

        Hello,

        I can add to this issue some more info – almost identical situation when you use Cyrillic letters. The test keyword was “покер карти” (poker cards). This is what I see:

        1. The keyword / phrase does not appear in the page title.
        It’s there.

        2. The keyword doesn’t appear in the first paragraph of the copy, make sure the topic is clear immediately.
        It’s there.

        3. The keyword density is 0.00%, which is a bit low, the keyword was found 0 times.
        The keyword is counted 3 times in main paragraph.

        4. The keyword / phrase does not appear in the URL for this page. If you decide to rename the URL be sure to check the old URL 301 redirects to the new one!

        But then again I got also this:

        The meta description contains the primary keyword / phrase.
        The page title contains keyword / phrase, at the beginning which is considered to improve rankings.

        Which is kinda confusing with above statements =]

        Keep up the good work!

        • Joost de ValkBy Joost de Valk on 10 May, 2011

      • MarcusBy Marcus on 11 May, 2011

        you might have changed the way I’m going to handle bugs on my plugins :D. what are your thoughts on the platform from a dev’s perspective, make life easier?

  9. Luke ThomasBy Luke Thomas on 9 May, 2011

    If we currently have the WordPress SEO plugin, how do we go about updating to the new version? I love this plugin – it makes SEO FUN!

  10. MichaelBy Michael on 9 May, 2011

    Is it possible to add a rel=”canonical” tag to the %%POSTLINK%% inside the RSS section?

    This way any scrapers that take content are forced to link with the rel=canonical tag.

  11. DrorBy Dror on 9 May, 2011

    An amazing addition to an amazing plugin. This is really great and I just want to thank you for working so hard on creating the best plugins and keeping them free.

    I would guess that “Content SEO” is the focus keyword of the article.

    • Ronen BekermanBy Ronen Bekerman on 10 May, 2011

      Hey Bro’ – I 2nd that BIG TIME!!!

      I went into some of my old but gold posts and started to check them out with the new page analysis and they do need some more work to be spot on!

      Thank you for providing a plugin that allows us writers to get the SEO done too and with ease.

      Cheers ;)

  12. Rajiv AbrahamBy Rajiv Abraham on 9 May, 2011

    Bonus points for the person who guesses the focus keyword of this article :)… I would go with Content SEO too.

    But really awesome updates and while I’ve never used the likes of Scribe SEO, I do use paid plugins like SEO Pressor. Cannot believe your “beta” plugin delivers more value that most paid ones.

    Thanks and very much appreciated.

  13. Lars KoudalBy Lars Koudal on 9 May, 2011

    I wonder how the people behind the Scribe WP Plugin is gonna take the news of the Linkdex integration? :-)

    Great work as always, several versions before 1.0, curious to see whats coming next :-)

  14. Jonathan GoodmanBy Jonathan Goodman on 9 May, 2011

    If there was a Nobel Prize for most amazing WordPress Developer you’d have my nomination. You are critically important to the WordPress Community and I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you have put into these plugins.

  15. Josh GalvanBy Josh Galvan on 9 May, 2011

    Hi Yoast! This is an awesome update! Any word on the Thesis theme integration of your plugin?

  16. Matt Clark - Damang MediaBy Matt Clark - Damang Media on 9 May, 2011

    Just started using your plugin the other day on our new install and site of wordpress. Like the functionality and with the new add-on this is a great tool and will be one that we implement on client sites. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Mike SchmidtBy Mike Schmidt on 9 May, 2011

    This is the best update to a plugin since sliced bread. Really liking this one. The focus keyword has to be “SEO”!!!
    Thanks for a job excellently laid out and released. Kudos to you!!

  18. JonathonBy Jonathon on 9 May, 2011

    Awesome dude. I just came across it on one of my websites. I did not realise then wow look at all this new info. V Good. Keep up the great work man. Your SEO plugin kicks ASS.

  19. Aaron HBy Aaron H on 9 May, 2011

    Joost, awesome work fella. WordPress SEO plugin is the only one I ever use these days because its lacking all that useless junk that most others have, and then just does it job so darn well.

    I’m stoked to hear your overhauling the sitemap builder because just out of coincidence, I was planning on sending you an email with some possible sitemap tool suggestions.

    As everyone that uses the plugin would know, the tool creates a sexy looking sitemap but runs out of puff when websites grow over the 10,000 post mark. Obviously wordpress is becoming more of a CMS, less of a blogging platform with every new release. This means a lot more websites with 10,000+ posts.

    I have an old article directory with over 200,000 articles, so its always been a nightmare when it comes to building that a nice sitemap that contained an index since Google doesn’t accept sitemap pages with over 50,000 URLs on each.

    Then not long ago I came across a sitemap plugin called “Sitemap Index” found here http://goo.gl/QsHq0. It creates the sitemap dynamically so managed to create a 200,000+ URL sitemap for me in 2 or 3 seconds. Problem is the plugin was never maintained after release and I dont think its ever going to be, which is a shame because its got some serious potential.

    Only problem I had with it was an increase in server load because the sitemap was generated every single time a bot hit it. Be easy fixed by caching or putting limits on the database queries.

    With your skills, I thought it maybe worth you having a look at and maybe even integrating some of its functionality into your plugin. Just a thought, thats all.

    Cheers

    Aaron

    for the “bonus” –Content SEO–

  24. Steve ThoenyBy Steve Thoeny on 10 May, 2011

    Big fan, and the Linkdex analysis appears to be a game-changer.

    Unfortunately I’m having major problems with the 0.3 update in Edit Post and Edit Page on ALL of my installs…

    1) I no longer see tabs as before and in your screen print examples.

    2) Snippet Preview displays date, URL, and Cached-Similar but no title or description.

    3) Find Related Keywords doesn’t work and scrolls the screen down 1/2 page.

    4) Generate SEO Title does nothing.

    5) The text under the Meta Description box does not indicate the number of Chars Left. In fact it displays no count at all: (because of date display), chars left.

    Six websites all with same issues
    No problems before updating to 0.3 today
    Same problems on existing and new posts and pages
    WP 3.1.2
    Woo Themes (various) with newest Woo Framework 4.0.5
    IE9 Version 9.0.8112.16421

    As my final test I did a fresh WP install on an unused domain, no other plugins but 0.3. Same problems on both Edit Post and Edit Page.

    Thought you would like to know.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    • Yassen YotovBy Yassen Yotov on 10 May, 2011

      Hello,

      Have same issue in IE9/FF 4.0.1. At the beginning my first thought was conflict with other addon and disregarded it. Then tested on a fresh install of WP + WP SEO 0.3 and it was the same – no tabs shown, not working Find Related Keywords and Generate SEO Title. On SEO Title and SEO Description fields char count left does not work.

      I can provide screen-shot if it is needed.

      Regards,

    • Steve ThoenyBy Steve Thoeny on 10 May, 2011

    Hi Joost,

    Just to confirm that 0.3.1 is working fine – the tabs are there, character count and generate SEO title are working.

    Still some minor hiccups with non Latin characters, but other than that – GREAT work.

    Keep up the good work!

  28. ozzysBy ozzys on 10 May, 2011

  31. ErniBy Erni on 10 May, 2011

    Wow this sounds really like a killer plugin. It’s great to see that you going for free, even with this update. Keep up the good work and only the best for you.

  32. Yassen YotovBy Yassen Yotov on 11 May, 2011

    Hi Joost,

    Great improvement with the 0.3.2 update for the non Latin char sets.

    Here is something odd that catches my eye. On general tab I have this:

    Your focus keyword was found in:
    Article Heading: Yes (1)
    Page title: Yes (1)
    Page URL: No
    Content: Yes (4)
    Meta description: Yes (1)

    On Page Analysis I have this:

    The keyword density is 4.44%, which is great, the keyword was found 2 times.

    The only difference I can tell is this – two of the focus keywords are with upper first letter e.g.:


    покер карти
    Покер карти

    If I change all to small caps:

    The keyword density is 8.89%, which is over the advised 5.5% maximum, the keyword was found 4 times.

    Hope this helps.

    Keep up the good work!

    Are you at Meet Magento NL? Maybee see you than!

  36. Alex AguilarBy Alex Aguilar on 11 May, 2011

    Great post and great plugin as usual Joost. I ignore the Flesch Reading Ease tool a lot of the time. I resent the idea of simplifying my text for people who have trouble parsing the occasional long sentence or reading a multi-syllable word. While I don’t purposefully over-complicate my blog posts with unnecessary words or run-on sentences, at the same time I refuse to patronize my readers with dumbed-down text just so I get a good enough Flesch score.

  52. Tracey RollisonBy Tracey Rollison on 14 May, 2011

    Our site has been an early adopter of this terrific plugin, and it’s always run without a hitch before. With the Lindex initial upgrade to it, we noticed the same 5 problems another poster listed above. So I immediately upgraded when the fix was available. But we’ve had a major hitch: a huge drop in pagerank for a bunch of our top articles. The articles in question were all on the top two pages for their keywords, and after the upgrade have been lower than on the tenth page. This is the *only* thing on our end that changed–no other plugins etc. upgraded. I haven’t seen anything from our webhost, so I don’t quite know where else to check for an answer to this.

    • Joost de ValkBy Joost de Valk on 14 May, 2011

      Hey Tracey,

      to be honest, a ranking drop on a lot of pages *immediately* after upgrading is giving my plugin a bit too much credit: Google won’t suddenly reindex all your pages when you do something like that. I’m quite, like 99.9%, certain that there is something else the matter here….

  53. Tracey RollisonBy Tracey Rollison on 15 May, 2011

    That’s what I was thinking, too. I’m at a bit of a loss to figure what else it might be, though. How long does it usually take for Google to reflect changes resulting in loss of page rank? I’m trying to troubleshoot backwards.

    • BobBy Bob on 3 June, 2011

      Google has recently gone through a radical transformation of their algorithm that has left many site owners, even famous ones, in tears. I’ve noticed many junk sites on top of my searches since then. Perhaps this is to blame. You can write to Google if you can find an address for a human being, and explain why yours should not have been taken lower on the list. It is rumored they might actually care about it. I cannot vouch for this rumor, but if you are trying everything and you believe in miracles, this is worth the shot.

  54. DianeBy Diane on 15 May, 2011

    A lot, but not all, of my sites use wordpress these days. What can I take from this stuff that I can use on my non-blog sites? Or should I just turn them all into blogs?

    • Tracey RollisonBy Tracey Rollison on 15 May, 2011

      Diane, I run two different sites, neither of which is a blog, and both of which are run on WordPress (the software, not the .com). If you click my name, you’ll see one, which is a multi-author knowledge enthusiast site. The other I own, and is a menu/meal-planning service (where subscribers get a new week’s worth of dinner menus each week). I don’t know if it’s ok to give you the link or not, since my purpose is to show you another type of non-blog site that is a WordPress-based site?

    Hi Yoast,

    I like your Word Press SEO Plugin a lot and I have a question about it.

    I hope you don’t mind that a leave my question here, thought this post has another topic.

    Since I can prevent with the SEO-Plugin categories from being indexed, why is it not possible to provide the category links with a nofollow attribute?

    Or is it better to leave the category links to be followed even if I prevent them from beeing indexed?

    This way Ioose link juice to them, don’t I?

    I would love to read your thoughts about this.

    Best regards,

    Jörg (Hamburg, Germany)

    Great plugin, great update Joost. Watched your webinar last week and look forward to seeing the improvements.

    The question I raised about integration some kind of SEO Friendly Images functionality was more so you could focus your image tags per post in one place (but it would have a default setting also so you didn’t need to). Not really useful for normal posts, but if you use a lot in one post perhaps it could take the info from your focus keywords – optimising the tags per post?

    Cheers,
    Rab

    You are doing the most impressionable wordpress plugins that I ever work with. The fact that they are also free is a very big win. I can wait to test this new functionality properly and see what has to offer. Thanks a lot Joost.

    Great improvement! When are you going to localize the plugin? I’m interested translating in Spanish…
