2. State-of-the-art text optimization

Optimize your content in the most natural way possible

Search engines get smarter every day and context is key in SEO. They use the context in which a keyword appears to determine what a text is about. Synonyms and related terms, therefore, are more important than ever.

Yoast SEO Premium lets you optimize your text for these synonyms and related terms. In addition to that, it detects any word forms of the keyword you use in your text. If you use for instance “decoration”, we will find word forms like “decorated” and “decorates” as well, just like Google does.

These features work in conjunction with another awesome feature, that of keyword distribution. Our analyses tell you if you’ve distributed your terms well throughout the text. This is the closest to Google’s algorithm you will get with a WordPress plugin!*

3. Internal linking

Get relevant internal linking suggestions. No need to know all your content off the top of your head!

If you want to rank, you have to create content. High quality, relevant and informative content, about the 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 where 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.

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what Andrew Evans from Intellifluence says about the internal linking tool:

While the Yoast SEO free plugin offers many great features, the Premium version takes things to the next level. The internal linking suggestions feature ensures our blog is organized in a cohesive manner. It also ensures that link equity passes to other posts. This feature alone saves a tremendous amount of time as the plugin suggests links as we write. As the site grows, this feature only becomes more valuable! If you’ve ever tried to develop an interlinking strategy for an established blog, you’ll know exactly what I mean…

4. Social previews

See your social posts through the eyes of your readers

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:

5. Orphaned content filter

Catch hard-to-find content

For an article to rank well it has to be available for search engines. A lot of sites, however, have so-called orphaned content – i.e. content that’s not linked from anywhere and thus unavailable to both search engines as well as visitors.

In the past, it used to be hard to track down orphaned content and to add it correctly to the site structure. With Yoast SEO Premium’s orphaned content filter its a piece of cake. Coupled with the internal linking tool you’ll start linking these posts in no-time!

6. Stale cornerstone content filter

Let us remind you to update your outdated content

Your most complete and highest-ranking posts or pages, a.k.a. your cornerstone content should be up-to-date at all times. But in your day-to-day activities, you might not always think about them.

Our stale cornerstone content filter will remind to check them at least every 6 months! If you find one of your cornerstones in this filter, make sure to go through it and check if it’s still up to date. Easy as pie!

    I love Yoast SEO plugin as it has lots of features. The internet linking system is amazing & readability score also. But in SEO, there is no score system. So, i am requesting to make this option. It will help us Yoast users to make SEO contents. Thanks

      Hi Azad! Thanks, great to hear you like the internal linking features and readability analysis. I’m not sure what option it is you’re missing, though. The Yoast SEO content analysis works just like the readability analysis, and it’s specifically designed to help users SEO-proof their content! For a quick reminder, check out this post: https://yoast.com/use-content-analysis-yoast-seo/

        The option Yoast user missing is SEO score. Yoast has readability score but it doesn’t have SEO score. So, we are missing this option. If you consider making this SEO score like readability score, this will help all Yoast user to make better SEO contents. I hope, you understand.

        • Willemien Hallebeek
          Willemien Hallebeek  • 10 months ago

          Alright, if I understand correctly, you’re seeing our readability score, but no SEO analysis like that? Well, the good news is, Yoast SEO does already have an SEO analysis just like that, with green bullets and all! It allows you to fill in a keyword and check things like keyword density, keyword distribution, etc.

          It sounds like it’s just not enabled for you. Please have a look at this article: https://yoast.com/help/how-to-enable-disable-the-keyword-analysis/ and check your settings to enable it.

            No, it’s enable for me too. I see green, yellow & red color for specific keywords. But score system let us making better SEO contents. You understood what i mean, that’s great.
