Frequently asked questions

How do I access Yoast SEO academy?

After purchasing a Yoast SEO academy training course, you are sent a few separate emails:

You have access to the course for one whole year, starting at the moment of purchase.

I’ve been given a training course or subscription. What now?

After you have been given a Yoast Academy training course, you are sent an email with proof of enrollment for every unique course you have been enrolled in. If you did not have one yet, a MyYoast account has automatically been created for you when you were enrolled in the course.

Your login details for Yoast SEO academy
There are a few different possibilities:
– If this is your first product from Yoast, you need to set a password for your MyYoast account. Use this password on future logins.
– If you already had a MyYoast account or a Yoast Academy account (these are the same), you can continue using those login details.
– If you already had login details but forgot them, you can reset your password.

Access your courses via MyYoast
Go to the Courses/Enrollments tab in MyYoast to find all courses that you have purchased yourself as well as all courses you are enrolled in. In the Courses/Progress tab you can access Yoast SEO academy.

Access your courses directly
You can directly access your courses here.

I’ve finished a course but my course progress is not 100%. What should I do?

To complete a course, you have to make sure all topics of that course are marked as complete. If a topic is followed by a quiz, you can mark a topic as complete by completing that quiz (and reaching a score of 80% or higher). If the topic is not followed by a quiz, you can mark the topic as complete by clicking the green “Mark complete” button at the bottom of the topic.

You can easily see which topics of a course are marked as complete in the course overview on the right-hand side. In the image below, the topic at the top is marked as complete (indicated with a check mark), and the other topics have not been marked as complete yet.
