Free courses

We have four free courses, which are the SEO for beginners training, the WordPress for beginners training, the Block editor training and the Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin training.

You can choose to take the first three to learn more about their respective fields. The Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin training is a bit of a standalone course that focuses on the usage of the Yoast SEO for WordPress (Premium) plugin. So this one can be done at any moment should you wish to learn more about the plugin and its intricacies and features.

The basics of SEO

Then, we would recommend starting with the All-around SEO training as it gives you an outline of everything you need to learn about the basics of SEO and expounds upon those first two courses mentioned.

Focus on content or technical SEO

Then, you can decide to focus on either content or technical SEO. There is not necessarily a preferred order, but you could choose a path based on your interest and which you’d like to get started with first.

Content SEO

Should you choose content, then you can continue with the Keyword research training, SEO copywriting training, and the Site structure training. Keep in mind that a small part of the SEO copywriting course is also discussed extensively in the Keyword research course, so we recommend doing the Keyword research training before the SEO copywriting training.

Technical SEO

Should you choose to focus on the technical side of SEO, then you can continue with Technical SEO training and the Structured data training.

Other courses

There are also two special courses you might want to keep in mind. The International SEO training can be done at any moment after finishing All-around SEO.

Finally, you can get the latest SEO news from our experts in the SEO news course. This course is updated monthly. We’d recommend you to keep an eye on that, so you can keep your SEO knowledge fresh and up-to-date!
