Why you should buy Yoast SEO Premium

January 04th, 2017 – 14 Comments

One of the questions we regularly get is: “Why should I buy Yoast SEO Premium when the free version of Yoast SEO is so awesome already?”. Well, we’re glad you asked! Let me explain the most important features you’ll get, when you buy Yoast SEO Premium.

I’ll discuss the main functionalities below: the redirects manager, our internal linking tool, the social preview and the possibility to add multiple focus keywords. On top of that, you also get something which is not a feature. It’s access to our top-notch support team, who answer your questions around the clock. But if all is well, you won’t even need our support team and you can just use our awesome features:

Redirects module

When you’re building out your site, you’re bound to run into cases where you’re deleting pages, moving pages, changing URLs for categories, etc. All these changes can cause problems when you’re not properly redirecting the old URLs to new ones. In all these cases and more, our redirects module can help you fix those. You won’t need your developer to create those redirects for you anymore, just do it yourself!

If you want to rank, you have to create content. High quality, relevant and informative content, about keywords you want to be found for. The more you have, the better. If you manage to create all this content, you might face other challenges though. How do you structure this content? How do you show Google which posts are related, and which are most important? That’s when our internal linking tool helps you out. It shows which posts are related to the one you’re working on, so it’s super easy to link to related posts:

Social previews

Doesn’t it annoy you, when you share your blog post on Facebook and the wrong image appears? With Yoast SEO Premium you can check what your post will look like on Facebook or Twitter, without even going to these channels. While working on your post you can just go to the Yoast SEO meta box, upload the image you’d like to show, and make sure it will look fine:

Multiple focus keywords

Perhaps you’re using Yoast SEO now, and you’ve noticed you can only choose one focus keyword to optimize your text for. However, there can be times that you’d like to make your post or page rank for more than one focus keyword. Perhaps for a synonym or a closely related topic, and Yoast SEO doesn’t allow for that. Yoast SEO Premium does, let me explain why:

    I’m interested in checking out Yoast SEO Premium, primarily because I’m changing my site around quite a bit after 10 years and my redirect issues seem a bit daunting. $69 a year is a lot for my non-commercial site so I’m not sure if I can keep purchasing Premium on an ongoing basis. If I do decide to not continue with Premium and downgrade at sometime in the future, do I lose all the redirect rules I set up with the module, or are those written into the .htaccess and the rules will stay even with a downgrade. Thanks for clarifying.

    I liked both interlinking and multiple focused keywords features.

    But I have a question for you: is multiple focused keywords feature really worth it? Or is it better to focus on one really good long tail keyword so you could get better rankings for multiple keywords combined.

    I’m a huge fan of Yoast and using it for 3 years. I’m really happy with it.

    And I wouldn’t mind giving the Yoast premium a try.

    Thanks!

      Hey Anil!
      We think it is. Sometimes it’s so hard to choose one keyword as there are synonyms and some slightly different related keywords. When that happens, you can just use all keywords you want with our multiple focus keyword feature.

    Is having multiple “focus keywords” even worth it though? I don’t even use a focus keyword and my website ranks well enough to be happy with. Maybe it could rank even better with a focus keyword, or even multiple, but I cannot seem to see the point in it.

    Shouldn’t you just be targeting a “main keyword”?

    P.S: Love using Yoast. It’s literally the only plugin I use for SEO across each of my websites.

    I am using the free version and it is incredible, it is helping me a lot, my only problem is that as I use it in Portuguese, I have to translate to know what I should improve in my article! An entire version translated into Portuguese would be a maximum!
    I love this plugin Thanks!

    The 301 redirects don’t seem to work, what could the cause be? Something local?
