SEO workout #1: Configure Yoast SEO with the optimal settings for your site (free)

This workout helps you set up Yoast SEO in the right manner, so that you can kickstart your website’s SEO. It covers essential settings and immediately introduced yourself properly to Google.

Doing the workout, is like handig Google a business card with your name, logo or social media profiles. The more you provide to search engines, the better they can understand it. As a bonus, you increase your chances on getting a knowledge panel of your own!

SEO workout #2: Rank with the content you want to rank with (premium)

You can’t control everything Google does, but there is a way to improve its ranking of the right article for the right keywords and search intent: great internal linking. Getting your internal links (back) in shape is essential — it helps you rank with the content you want to rank.

In this 3 step SEO workout, you’ll work on your most important content: your cornerstones. You’ll learn how to find out where your cornerstones are, how many links they have, and where to add links pointing to the cornerstone. This workout will help you rank with your best content!

SEO workout #3: Clean up your unlinked content to make sure people can find it!

Content that doesn’t get any links from other posts or pages on your site is what we call “orphaned content”. As a result, this content is hard to find, for both Google and visitors. Posts and pages need internal links to them, to fit into a site’s structure and to be findable. With this workout, we’ll help you update your orphaned content and make sure you have links pointing towards them!
