I have been using Yoast since the time we started our website. The results were just fantastic! The SEO Analysis of Yoast has really helped me on how I can improve my content. This has helped me improve the traffic on my website by 10 folds, but we started ranking on the 1st page of Google on the majority of our searches. I really thank Yoast SEO for helping me grow my website.

I have been using Yoast for a few years now, With great results and value. Lately, my website has encountered some crazy problems. I requested help from Yoast, and the support team was extremely helpful, very friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable; there is no problem that they can get answers and solutions for. I found the Yoast support team’s attitude and dedication truly incredible and very rare. This should be the benchmark for this industry and other global organizations.

XML News Sitemap

The plugin immediately pings Google on the publication of a new post and because it uses the WordPress SEO plugins’ sitemap API it creates a sitemap on the fly: no waiting times, no long sitemap generation issues.

All the relevant schema.org markup

Our News SEO plugin adds all the right and relevant NewsArticle schema.org markup to your posts. This will allow Google to grab all the information they need to make sure your article is properly crawled and indexed, without any hassle and problems!

Advanced News SEO

The plugin allows you to do a bit more advanced News SEO by allowing you to decide whether a specific article should be in the Google News XML sitemap, set a genre, define stock tickers, and choose whether to index it:

Exclude categories

With the News SEO plugin you can easily disable specific categories that shouldn’t be included in the Google News XML sitemap. You can select them after you enabled certain post types.
