One of the things we are understanding more and more, is that we have failed to explain why our Yoast SEO Premium plugin is awesome. Today, I’d like to tell you about the redirects manager that’s contained in it.
First, let me show you this video:
Redirect when you need to
Yoast SEO Premium makes sure you don’t leave holes in your site. When you’re changing a posts URL, you should redirect the old URL to the new one. When you’re deleting a post, in most cases, you should redirect the URL somewhere. Both of these are common things to do when you’re cleaning up your old content. In both cases, Yoast SEO Premium will give you notices like this:
Similarly, when you’re cleaning out your tags or categories, you want to redirect them when you delete or change them:
Note that these notice have been improved slightly from what they look like right now, you’ll all get this update next Wednesday when we release Yoast SEO 2.2.
Solve crawl issues with the redirect manager
The redirect manager is heavily tied into the Google Search Console (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools) integration, which allows you easily solve all Google’s crawl issues. Simply click “Redirect” and tell the plugin where the redirect should go.
Yoast SEO, even the free version, helps you to optimize your site. Yoast SEO Premium, with this functionality, helps you make sure your site stays optimized.
