It means that millions of WordPress users can now easily build a page with Elementor and optimize its content with Yoast SEO.

First off I would like to say terrific blog!
I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
tips? Many thanks!
Hi, Carroll. Thanks for your comment! I know the feeling, it can be difficult to start right away. It might help to start by writing down the purpose of your text, the audience you want to write for and the main question you want to answer in your text. Some preparation makes it easier to put that pen to paper :) We have a step-by-step guide on how to write a blog post that can help you with that. Hope this helps and good luck!
I use Beaver Builder. Any plans to work with them? :-)
Hi Ami. Thanks for your comment! Unfortunately, we don’t have any news to share regarding a possible integration with Beaver Builder. Sorry about that :)
I was really waiting for this. Thank you so much both of you.
That’s great to hear! You’re welcome and we hope you enjoy using Yoast SEO in Elementor :)
I want to ask a question on another topic. I have a blog, its archive pages, tags, categories are getting indexed in google search results. However, I have already set these things to noindex from Yoast Search Appearance setting.
Hi there, Milind! It might take some time for the page to disappear if you’ve recently changed this. Also, this article might be able to help you: https://yoast.com/wordpress-noindex-post/
Thanks. Still getting to grips with Elementor
You’re welcome! And good luck!
Congrats Marieke and teams of Yoast and Elementor 🥳
That is a partnership benefitting millions of users. So great to see two of the most popular brands in the WP space collaborate ❤
Thanks, Jan! We’re so glad to join hands and help more people build awesome websites.
I’m excited about this! I love both platforms, but I always wondered if my site suffered because I could only use Yoast in WordPress, so my blog body wasn’t getting any love.
Does this integration happen with the free version of Elementor and the free version of Yoast?
Hey Melani. That’s great to hear. We are excited as well. And yes, the integration works both in the free versions of Elementor and Yoast SEO.
This is great news, we have been using Yoast SEO since a long time it’s a nice SEO plugin and we design websites for clients on elementor so this collaboration will help us a lot. Thank you Yoast.
Awesome! This what I was waiting for. Thank you so much Yoast and Elementor.
You’re welcome, Parth!
I created my website via Wix because of the vast creative templates that they have. But in order to have a good SEO on my site, WordPress would be a good fit as a start-up. I hope to make my own site through it in the coming weeks. Thank you for sharing this!
Hi Kristianne. The combination of WordPress, Elementor and Yoast SEO gives you so many awesome tools to build great sites. Hope you enjoy making the jump to WordPress!
Awasome! Thanks for seo ^^
Glad you like it, Mesut!
Absolutely blinding news. Have been using both plugins for some time now, and it has been a bit of a mission. Looking forward to trying this out.
Hi Simon. Glad you like the news! Can’t wait to hear what you think about the integration.
Do you have plans to integrate with the Divi builder? I’m hoping so :)
Second this… would love to see a Divi integration.
Hi Julie. Unfortunately, we don’t have any news to share regarding a possible Divi integration. Sorry!
