Yoast keeps changing and growing in many, many ways. One of those is a redesign, which is now live. We’re finally using the theme framework we’ve been recommending to others for ages: StudioPress’ Genesis. We used an external developer for most of the development, just because I’m too pressed for time myself and didn’t want this to wait. His name is Bill Erickson and he comes highly recommended, he’s been an absolute pleasure to work with.
I hope you like it, a longer story on the how and why of this will come soon, as we make sure we’ve fixed all small bugs.

But there’s more… While we work on the new design, we can also tell you that we’ve actually hired a part-time designer, who’ll be joining us September 1st to start out several new projects. We’re excited to have her on board but we won’t tell you more than that just yet!
Related to that I have finally convinced my wife that I need her in the company too, to head up our research “department” (she’s a Ph. D. in criminology/sociology). While she will continue to teach and do research at Avans, she will also be helping us out with a research project, for which an intern will be starting soon as well.
One more thing…
Video SEO! It’s like, ready. We’re hard at work preparing documentation and the necessary infrastructure, but the plugin will go on sale within the next few weeks.
That’s it for now, enjoy the new design and make sure you subscribe to the newsletter so we can keep you up to date.
