While the Yoast SEO-free plugin offers many great features, the Yoast SEO Premium GPL WordPress Plugin 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
We’ve always treated Yoast SEO Premium GPL as a separate plugin from Yoast SEO. While that made sense in the past, we’ve concluded that providing it as an add-on to Yoast SEO is a much better proposition. For one, it makes it easier to maintain because all products now share the same codebase. But, more importantly, it’ll help us get ready to offer you a much more seamless experience buying and installing Yoast SEO Premium in the future.
In Yoast SEO you can enter the keyword or keyphrase you’d like your post or page to rank for in the search results. We then run a check on your content to check whether you’re using the keywords often enough – but not too often – and in the right spots. In Yoast SEO Premium, we take this one major step further.
We will not only check for the keyword or keyphrase you enter, but we will analyze your text on all variations of that word or phrase.
If the key phrase is “room decorating ideas” and the synonym is “apartment decorating ideas” all the possible word forms of each word are taken into account: ‘apartments’, ‘rooms’, ‘room’s’, ‘decorate’, ‘decorates’, ‘decorated’, ‘idea’, etc. This way, you are truly optimizing your text. With this addition in Yoast SEO Premium, we can guarantee that no other WordPress plugin comes closer to how Google will see your text*!
*Word forms are available
in English, Dutch, German, French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, Polish, Arabic, Hebrew, Hungarian, Norwegian and Indonesian. We are constantly working on perfecting this for all available languages!
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…
