How to use Yoast SEO?
You will see a Yoast SEO box under every blog post in the wordpress editor, in which you will be able to manage everything. For example, under a blog post in ShoutMeHindi, it is displayed like this, I have not written anything yet.
After that I wrote the complete blog post, along with it all the set was done, like adding title, adding images, internal and out bound linking etc. After that, I entered my keyword in the field containing Title, Meta Description and Focus keyword in the Yoast SEO box, for which I want to rank this blog post.
Then this box became something like that, as shown in the screenshot below:
So according to the keyword I had entered, it analyzed the content of all the blog posts and told me if it is better than SEO. Let us first know the factors of its content analysis one by one.
First of all, showing a red dot, and saying that you are linking to another page whose focus keyword is the one you want to rank. So he is giving advice that you remove it.
Next, let's go, saying that, the alt text of images on your page is also set, which is a factor of SEO, so this is also OK.
After that all the orange and dots are green, which means that you have optimized your post with good on-page SEO. But this may not happen in your case, you will have to improve your content one by one by looking at its content analysis.
Similarly, it is also revealing other factors, such as
- Keyword Density
- Meta description
- Number of words
- Is keyword appearing in the first paragraph?
- Is the focus keyword used in the heading tags or not?
- Have you ever used this keyword before?
- Is there a keyword in the meta description?
So it will make you configure all these things and if all is good then green dot will display, medium will be orange, otherwise red. In other words, different colored dots indicate different conditions:
Green – Excellent, Orange – Fine, Red – Need to improve
Another great feature of the Yoast SEO plugin is that you can also change the meta information of your blog post or page. Yoast SEO meta box will have Snippet Preview which will show you how your blog post will display in the search engine.
You can edit any section by clicking on it. Such as meta title, meta description and permalink.
So in this way, Yoast SEO plugins can help you to optimize your content on-page. Keep in mind this is only an esitmation based tool. Natural things only you can recognize. So do not depend completely on this plugin.
