Yoast SEO Updates in Focus

One of the most popular search engine optimization plugins, Yoast SEO, has released several new features and functionality that are worth a look for websites operating on the WordPress platform.

The premium version of Yoast SEO has long had the ability to connect with Google Search Console, but now the plugin will show crawl error from the dashboard, greatly simplifying administration. Yoast SEO Premium has also expanded on its ability to add redirects. Previously, it was only possible to redirect 404 pages using a 301. Now the company has added the ability to use 302, 307, 410, and 451 redirects.

The premium version of the plugin has also updated its internal linking tool to suggestother pages on a site that would make sense to link to from the content you're currently writing. The tool will now be able to determine whether or not a suggested link has already been added to the text. Learn about installing and updating WordPress plugins.
