Yoast SEO 4.3 It's time for Spanish

Did you know over 550 million people speak Spanish? Did you know there are now more Spanish speakers in the US than there are in Spain? And that Spanish is considered the second most important language in the world, just after English, and before Mandarin? These are huge numbers, and we are now proud to announce Yoast SEO 4.3 is starting to speak Spanish as well.

Now, we should start by saying that support for Spanish is not complete, as we are still fine-tuning some readability checks. In this release, following English, German and Dutch, Yoast SEO Premium will now analyze your text and give you suggestions to create relevant internal links. This way, you no longer have to search manually for links that add value to your text and make your site structure stronger.

In a follow-up release, we will complete the support for the Spanish language, so that we can check your writing and give you readability advice as well. Keep an eye on our site for the announcement.

Trigger site-wide analysis

For our internal linking suggestions to work well, we need to know exactly which words you often use in your texts. This way, we can generate a list of most used words, called Insights, upon which the link suggestions are based. Now, in some cases a site will not run a full site-wide analysis, and, as a result, the link suggestions are based on incomplete data. This makes the tool less reliable.

To counter incomplete analysis, Yoast SEO 4.3 adds a new status message to let you know that was not finished. Because without indexed posts, link suggestions won’t work correctly.

We’ve now added support for a couple of languages, but of course there are many more languages. You can help us develop language support for your mother tongue. Please contact us if you’d like to help.


Besides expanding our language support, we’ve fixed a couple of bugs and added some small enhancements. As always, we hope you enjoy this new release and don’t forget to check out the complete changelog on WordPress.org.
