Read this if you want to know why using Yoast is sure way to make your SEO start to measure up against the competition.
If you want readers, buyers, investors etc. to find you online you have to have some kind of SEO and using Yoast will give you a headstart… even if you have no idea what in the world you are doing.
What is SEO?
First of all, why would you read anything about SEO if you have no idea what it is? Now keep reading.
SEO stands for search engine optimization. If your pages and or posts are optimized it means they have a better chance of ranking high for a relevant search query. For instance, consider the following person talking to themselves.
Hmmm, I need to find the best place around that delivers good Thai food. I’m gonna search for “good thai food.”
This guy types “good thai food” in the Bing search bar. A new page comes up giving him his search queries. There is a couple of ads at the top of the page and then all the organic search results. If your page or post was optimized by using Yoast your page/post would stand a better chance to rank on page 1 of this query. Make sense?
Why is using Yoast a good thing.
Well, it’s free. So, there’s that.
Also, it’s laid out in a very simple fashion to give you access to lots of bells and whistles necessary for maintaining good SEO. Take a look at some of the favorites:
- Quick Webmaster Tools Verification – uggggghhhh, verifying Google, Bing or any of these things can get very annoying. the one step and you’re done process is very much enjoyed
- Controlling the Meta – Titles and Meta data are highly critical for rank returns, they just might be the most important for your posts… they are… so using Yoast helps you control them in a way that will save time and thought

Just be warned, if you do not know what a certain category of control is for then just leave it alone pretty please.
