Slack channels can get overcrowded with links, making it hard for people to decide what to click on. But, when you use the Yoast SEO Slack link sharing feature, your links will stand out. It's a quick and simple solution that can help you get one step ahead of your competitors!

Your shares will be more informative, which can help drive traffic to your site
