Join our free webinar: SEO in 2019

Mark your calendar! On November 20, we’re broadcasting our first-ever Yoast Academy webinar: SEO in 2019. What’s going to happen in search next year? And, what does this mean for your website? In this webinar,  Joost de Valk, Marieke van de Rakt and Jono Alderson shed their light on SEO in 2019. This is your opportunity to hear from these experts what to expect and how to prepare yourself! Best of all, it’s completely free and easy to attend. Oh, and by the way, we’ll announce an exciting new product in this webinar as well.

What am I going to watch?

The webinar is a one-hour show in which we’ll talk about SEO in 2019. Joost de Valk will kick off with a talk on the most important trends in SEO. After that, Marieke van de Rakt and Jono Alderson will join Joost in a round table discussion on one of these big developments: context and related search entities. We’ll cap things off with a live Q&A session in which you can ask questions to our panel of experts. Already have a burning question about the future of SEO? Leave it in the comments and we may answer it in the webinar!

    How close is Google directing the SEO future to the way people speak naturally, to include even incorrect grammar, frustration words (are those related entities?), and profanities?

    Looking forward to it. Thank you. I have done quite a lot of SEO on my website and still do not see the required results…and may I say, the whole concept is a huge learning curve for us older, non techies.

    Hi Joost we use your paid product on our website and love it.

    One thought, you will get far more attendees with a calendar download, which includes the access details, than hoping people remember the email or take the time to copy over to their work calendar. A significant amount more.

      Paul McDevitt is right about that calendar download. So easy for me to add it to my calendar!

    Is there a way to set up an alert from Yoast to notify us if our SEO on a particular website page falls below a certain ranking?

    • Willemien Hallebeek
      Willemien Hallebeek  • 1 year ago

      Thanks for your question, Caroline! We’ll add it to the list.

    I can’t figure out how to register for the webinar. There is no CTA that jumps out at me. Is there an actual registration page? …or do we have to subscribe to the YouTube channel and hopefully remember when it is going to be live there?



    • Willemien Hallebeek
      Willemien Hallebeek  • 1 year ago

      Hi Bob, you don’t have to register! If you just follow the youtube link you can set a reminder there.

    Het zou handig zijn om een iCal link of anderszins toe te voegen, hoeven we niet op te zoeken welke tijdzone we leven ;-)

    I watched the 15 minute SEO updates video yesterday (great video) and came away wondering how you validate the SEO and Readability evaluation criteria. They make sense and they’re aligned with what other SEO and content marketing experts say. However, if you really wanted to validate the criteria, you’d do some testing — perhaps you’d change the content to change the evaluation ratings for a number of website pages. Then you’d use statistical techniques to determine whether those evaluation rating changes had statistically significant impacts on rankings. Thanks!

    I know keyword cannibalization is a bad thing, however we have hundreds / thousands of videos about our shows. When selecting a keyword, the show is ultimately what we’re wanting to promote/have come up in searches without getting too granular. Any recommendations?

    • Willemien Hallebeek
      Willemien Hallebeek  • 1 year ago

      Thanks for your question, Jason! We’ll add it to the list.

    I’m already receiving an email newsletter from Yoast. Is the Free SEO tips with free SEO for beginners course different?

    Tags and categories. Couldn’t we just use one or the other?
