This combination of our two biggest products will allow you to take your SEO to the next level. In this post, I’ll explain why we are combining these products, why we are so excited, and how you can get started with Yoast SEO academy.

The Yoast SEO Premium plugin helps you with your SEO and Yoast SEO academy helps you optimize your efforts by offering different SEO training courses. Courses on local SEO, structured data, SEO copywriting, and so on. Now, we’re combining these products into one, powerful product. And the good news is that you’re getting all of that for the price of our plugin:

Why combine the two?

In order to outrank your competitors in the search engines, you need technical excellence and a kick-ass content SEO strategy. Our plugin takes care of all the technical aspects of SEO. In addition, Yoast SEO helps you to write SEO-friendly text and to set up an awesome internal linking structure.

But you can do more! If you really want to make a difference and attract even more traffic to your website, you should take your SEO to the next level: learn how to use structured data blocks, discover how to do keyword research like an SEO-professional or upgrade your blog posts with storytelling. We’ll teach you all these things in our online training courses. 

Training courses you’ll get access to

With this combination, you’ll get access to Yoast SEO academy Premium when you buy the Yoast SEO Premium plugin. This means that you’ll have free access to all of our current and future SEO training courses. Let’s look at the 12 training courses we have right now:

  • Are you just getting started with SEO? Our All-around SEO and SEO for beginners training courses will teach you all the SEO basics you’ll need to start ranking.
  • Learn how to make your content enjoyable, relevant and easy to find with the courses Keyword research, SEO copywriting and Site structure.
  • Dive into and master the technical side of SEO with our training courses on Technical SEO and Structured data.
  • Be found by people in your area or go international with our courses on Local SEO and International SEO.
  • But that’s not all! You’ll also have access to our WordPress for beginners course, the Block editor training, a course on how to set up and use Yoast SEO for WordPress and get the latest SEO news from our experts.

SEO for everyone

If you’re familiar with Yoast SEO academy, you’ll probably know that our Premium subscription used to cost a bit more than our Premium plugin. So you might be wondering why we’re giving you free access to all of our training courses and Yoast SEO Premium for the price of only our plugin?

The answer to that is easy: we want to make SEO accessible for everyone. We want everyone to have a fair chance at those top rankings. And we want you to get the best out of our plugin and your SEO efforts. That’s why we made the decision to combine these products and make it possible for everyone to step up their SEO game.

Buy Yoast SEO Premium or renew your subscription!

Everybody who buys a subscription for Yoast SEO Premium, automatically gets access to all of the training courses of Yoast SEO academy. You can easily access the different courses through the My Yoast account. Start learning all about local SEO, international SEO, SEO copywriting or keyword research.

Excited about sharing our knowledge

We are very excited about combining Yoast SEO Premium and Yoast SEO academy. We think it brings together the two things you need in order to set up a successful SEO strategy: technical excellence and SEO knowledge. 

Yoast is well integrated within the SEO community and we closely collaborate with Google, Microsoft and WordPress. We’ve  always been on top of the latest SEO news and use our SEO knowledge in order to finetune our product and to develop new features for the Yoast SEO plugin.

But our expertise is also really useful in educating people. SEO can be hard and translating SEO news into ‘work you need to do on your site’ is even harder. We share our SEO knowledge in training courses. And as it is now far less expensive, it’ll be more accessible and will empower even more people. 

How to get started with Yoast SEO academy

In the past years, we developed a lot of different training courses. We have an SEO for beginners course, but also offer courses for people that already have some SEO experience. The training courses, which offer a lot of videos and reading materials are also a great way to refresh your SEO knowledge. For SEO newbies, I would generally recommend starting with the All around SEO course. You’ll get the very basics of all SEO topics and can easily decide which topics you want to dive in deeper. 

Watch this video to get an idea of what our training courses in Yoast SEO academy look like:

So get started with your SEO by using Yoast SEO Premium and optimizing your SEO efforts with free access to all of our training courses in Yoast SEO academy. We’ll be there to guide you along the way and help you create content your users and the search engines will love:

Already a premium user?

If you’re already a premium user, you need to renew your license to get access to Yoast SEO Academy. This means you’ll add time to your already existing subscription. We understand that this may be annoying, especially if you’ve only recently renewed. The reason we’re doing it like this is very simple: our e-learning systems can’t handle giving every one of our hundreds of thousands of existing customers access all at once.

How to renew:

Log into your MyYoast account, on your account page, click “Manage” for the subscription you want to extend, and then click “Extend subscription with a year”.

    I have subscribed to yoast premium for several years.
    I have recently renewed.
    I cannot afford to pay another subscription to get seo academy.
    Very unfair if a faithful existing customer gets to miss out.

      Hi Geoff, we understand that this is disappointing. However, the number of users we have and the systems we work with did not allow for us to grand access to all our premium users right away. If you decide to renew your subscription it will be prolonged for an extra 12 months, on top of the months you have left.

      But if this is not an option for you right now, you can check out our free courses first! We added a new one on structured data last week. Go to https://yoast.com/academy/ to get access to this free subscription right away.

      Hi William. If you don’t want to sign up for Premium yet you can always try some of our free courses on Yoast SEO academy. Sign up on https://yoast.com/academy/

    Hello, thank you for the offer. Does one need to buy a new licence for every new site? What if you are an agency? Also, does one still have access the courses after the year is over?

    • Edwin Toonen
      Edwin Toonen  • 3 days ago

      Hi Dante. Yes, licenses are per site. You can buy as many as you want and the more you buy at once, the bigger your discount will be. As long as you have a Premium subscription you have access to the courses. Of course, our free courses are available at all times.

        Torben  • 3 days ago

        If I buy 20 licenses as an agency, will I be able to give site-owners access to the academy or is it only my account that has access?

        • Edwin Toonen
          Edwin Toonen  • 3 days ago

          Hi Torben. Because of the merge, we had to make a few changes in the back-end of our systems. One of the things we had to put on hold for the time being is the enrollment feature. At the time, it’s not possible to enroll other people. But don’t worry, we’re working on a new and improved way of handling this. Unfortunately, I don’t have a date when this will go live.

    I havent got time just at the moment for the courses – I am already a Premium SEO client.

    Is this inclusion of the Academy a time limited offer or will it apply when I renew my Premium SEO access as normal?

    • Edwin Toonen
      Edwin Toonen  • 4 days ago

      Hi Nige. No problem, this is a permanent change and you can access the courses at any given time.

    Are the badges and certifications still part of the Yoast academy training courses and also included with this?

    • Marieke van de Rakt

    Hi everybody,
    i’m already a Yoast SEO Premium, for access to the Courses i have to extend my subscription?

    Thanks

    • Marieke van de Rakt

      Yes. The number of users we have and the systems we work with did not allow for us to grand access to all our premium users right away. If you want access to the online courses today, you could decide to renew your subscription. Your subscription will be prolonged for an extra 12 months.

      Not sure if you want to do that? Check out our free Yoast Academy first. We have some wonderful free courses as well!

    I already have Yoast SEO Premium. How do I access the academy content please?

    • Marieke van de Rakt

      You will get access only if you renew your subscription. I understand that this is disappointing. However, the number of users we have and the systems we work with did not allow for us to grand access to all our premium users right away.

      If you want access to the online courses today, you could decide to renew your subscription. Your subscription will be prolonged for an extra 12 months (on top of the months you have left).

      Not sure about this? You could also check out our free courses first, to see if you want to renew now, or wait until your renewal is due.

        Hi, I literally renewed my Premium subscription at the end of October … does this mean I have to renew again already (it is not even a full month since I just paid …)

        • Willemien Hallebeek
          Willemien Hallebeek  • 4 days ago

          Unfortunately, yes. We understand that that must be frustrating, but we can’t grant access to all premium users right away. Our systems and support team wouldn’t be able to handle that. We do offer free courses (added a new one on structured data today!), you could look into first perhaps: https://yoast.com/academy/

    Can I purchase through my WordPress account and still get this fabulous deal?
    I’m totally unsure how to upload anything to WordPress

    thank you

    David

    • Marieke van de Rakt

      Hi David,

      You can purchase through our shop https://yoast.com/wordpress/plugins/seo/

      After buying, you’ll get an email with a download of the plugin and access to all the courses.

    I just renewed…do i have to wait to renew again to get the free access to the Courses?

    • Marieke van de Rakt

      Yes… unfortunately, our Yoast SEO Academy systems (and our support-team) couldn’t handle giving all of our customers access right away.
      If you renew now, you’ll get access to the courses and your subscription will be prolonged with 12 another months (on top of the months you have left on your subscription now).
