Are you a WordPress user? Do you want to rank higher in search engine results?
If so, then you need to learn how to use the Yoast SEO plugin.
The Yoast SEO plugin is a tool that helps you optimize your website for search engines. It is one of the most popular WordPress plugins and has over 5 million active installs.
In this article, we will give you a step-by-step guide on how to use the Yoast SEO plugin to optimize your website.
First, you need to install and activate the Yoast SEO plugin. For more information, see our article on how to install a WordPress plugin.
Once the plugin is activated, you will see a new menu item called “SEO” in your WordPress dashboard. Click on it to open the Yoast SEO settings page.
On the general settings page, you need to select your website’s type. You can choose between “Company or Organization” and “Personal.” If you are not sure, then select “Company or Organization.”
Next, you need to enter your site’s name and tagline. These are used by search engines to display your website in search results. After entering these details, click on the “Save changes” button at the bottom of the page.
Now, let’s move on to the configuration settings. On this page, you need to enter your company or organization’s name, logo, and slogan. This information is used by Google Knowledge Graph to display information about your company in search results.
You also need to select your country and language. These settings are important for localized search results. For example, if someone searches for “restaurants in New York,” then Google will display results from websites that have selected “United States” as their country and “English” as their language.
After entering all this information, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Save changes” button again.
Now we’ll move on to the social settings page. On this page, you need to connect your website with your social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter. This will help you get more traffic from social media sites. It will also help you build brand awareness and increase your chances of ranking higher in search engine results pages (SERPs).
