How can I get support?

Do you need help with one of the Yoast SEO products? There are multiple ways of getting support, depending on if you use the free Yoast SEO plugins for WordPress; Yoast SEO Premium or another paid WordPress add-on; or Yoast SEO for Shopify. In this article, we’ll walk you through the options.


Support for free WordPress plugins

There are several ways to get help for the free Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin and related free plugins.

Support page in the Yoast SEO plugin

Within the plugin, you can find the Support page under the Yoast SEO plugin menu in your WordPress backend. On the Support page, you’ll have access to frequently asked questions and additional resources: a great place to start finding solutions to your problems!

Help center

If you need help, we recommend our Yoast help center. In our help center, we provide explanations and how-to-guides for SEO, features of our products, installation manuals and much more. The help center is maintained on a daily basis to help you solve the most common questions.

Support forums for free WordPress products

All our free plugins have their own support forums at WordPress.org. These forums are looked after by very enthusiastic and knowledgeable users of that plugin. We have a Yoast SEO forum as well as a forum for free Yoast plugins.

How to use a free support forum

  1. Open the WordPress plugin repository and log into your account

  2. Search for your specific Yoast plugin

    Click on the plugin to open the details page.

  3. Click on Support

    This will take you to the Yoast SEO Support forums.

  4. Use Search this forum to search topics

    By entering several keywords, you can search the forum to see if anyone else has encountered and resolved the same issue.

  5. If your issue does not exist yet, create a topic

    If you cannot solve your issue with answers in existing topics, create a new topic by clicking Create topic.

  6. Fill in the form to create a new topic

    Fill out the topic form with as much detail as possible: this will help us in resolving your issues quicker. This includes a link to the site in question, a description of the issue, the expected outcome, any error messages you received, steps to recreate the issue and screenshots.

Help center

If you need help, we recommend you to look at our Yoast help center. In our help center, we provide explanations and how-to-guides for SEO, features of our products, installation manuals and much more. The help center is maintained on a daily basis, to help you solve the most common questions.

Support page in Yoast SEO

Within the plugin, you can find the Support page under the Yoast SEO plugin menu in your WordPress backend. On the Support page, you’ll have access to frequently asked questions and additional resources: a great place to start finding solutions to your problems! You can also contact the Support team directly by clicking Contact our support team at the bottom of the page.

Email

You can also reach the Yoast Support team at support@yoast.com.

The help beacon and live chat support

If you have a premium product, we also offer a help beacon with answers and the possibility to reach out to Support via email and live chat. You can find the help beacon in your MyYoast account; in the Help Center, the Yoast SEO academy and in your WordPress site Yoast SEO menu under Support.

Click the Need help? button to open the help beacon. Under Answers, you’ll find the most popular help articles; you can also search for any specific problem you have. Under Ask, you can contact the support team via e-mail or enter the live chat to talk to our support team directly.

I have problems with Premium support

Please note that premium personal support does not mean we’ll set up your plugin for you. Of course, we’ll help you with all your questions about the setup and basic use of the plugin you purchased.

If you have an add-on to the Yoast SEO plugin, for instance, Yoast Video SEO for WordPress, we will not provide support for the free Yoast SEO plugin. To get support on the Yoast SEO plugin itself, you need to upgrade to Yoast SEO Premium.

Sometimes, the Need Help beacon may not show. In that case, check that all plugins and themes are up-to-date and that you do not have Javascript errors.
