Yoast SEO 18.0: Fixes and enhancements

After releasing Yoast SEO for Shopify last week, it’s time for a new update of our OG WordPress SEO plugin. With the holiday season just behind us and the focus on Shopify, Yoast SEO 18.0 is a smaller update that brings several fixes and enhancements. Find out what you can expect!

Yoast SEO 18.0 is out today

For Yoast SEO 18.0, we’ve made improvements to enhance the performance of the plugin, plus various fixes in the social previews section and the schema implementation. You can find the full list of fixes in the changelog. Yoast SEO Premium did not get an update this time and in the future, the version numbers might differ between Premium and free.

Japanese compatibility with Yoast SEO add-ons

In Yoast SEO 17.9, we added a new language to our roster. Not just any language, Japanese! It’s a complex language that needs a lot of work to function correctly. Luckily, our team of brilliant linguists pulled it off, and now all Japanese people can enjoy readability and SEO analyses tailored to their language.

In this round of updates, we improve the handling of the Japanese language. In addition, we made sure that our other add-ons now work flawlessly in the Japanese language. We’ve updated Local SEO, WooCommerce SEO, and Video SEO add-ons.

Small updates for your favorite tool: Duplicate post

Yoast Duplicate Post is an essential, free tool for busy site owners and content managers. It lets you duplicate existing pages with a single click to help you transform these into others. It also features a revolutionary rewrite and republish feature that everyone should be using. For the latest release, we fixed several bugs so the plugin performs even better.
