Easily check the data SEO data on your pages

When you open a page, you typically see nicely organized content and colorful images. But, search engines see something else. They see a page full of tags, code, and other data that give them SEO information and instructions. However, it can be difficult for people to read and make sense of all that. That’s where the front-end SEO inspector comes in! It gives you a quick, easy-to-read overview of the SEO data on your site, right there on the front-end of your pages.

Ensure your posts and pages are optimized

Then, it’s a good idea to click the Edit post button, check the Yoast SEO feedback and see if you can turn those bullets green! That will ensure your pages are well optimized for your readers and search engines.

Easily read what’s behind your pages

Traditionally, if you want to see what’s in the background of your site, you’d need to use the page source view, an inspector, or some browser extension. And still, you’ll land on a page filled with code that can sometimes be hard to read. For example, you get this when you use the View Page Source setting in Google Chrome.

The front-end SEO inspector is much easier to use. It gives you a very readable overview of the SEO data on your site, so you know exactly what you are looking at.
