Hi That Helpful Chick here and today I want to show you how to fill out your Yoast wordpress settings on your blog posts.
Here we have a post in our dashboard. What you’ll need to do is scroll down – this is your content here – and just below your content you will see Yoast SEO box.
The few things that you will need to do is fill in your Focus Keyword, SEO Title and the Meta description. It’s really simple. I usually put my focus keyword in my title so that makes it really simple for me. I just copy and paste the title. And as you can see, I’m also putting those exact same keywords in my first paragraph.
So, go back down here and we paste that into our focus keyword and you’re going to paste the exact same thing into the SEO title cause that’s the title of our article.
Now, I always try and put my focus keyword in my first paragraph and this is gonna be my meta description. So what I do is just copy the part that’s got that in there. Now sometimes the first paragraph can be a little bit longer so you may have to condense what you use for your description because it only allows 156 characters. But it will tell you how many you have left. So you just paste it into here.
As you can see, it gives you items to check off here to make sure you’ve included the main areas.
You can also look here on page analysis. You’re not going to be able to always get all green lights here but that’s okay.
It says – You have not used your keyword/keyphrase in any subheading (such as H2) in your copy. That just means to make one of your headings within the article an H2 or H3 or H1, you wanna put your keyword in tht title and it’s bigger than your regular text.
The keyword density is a bit low but in this case we felt that if we had used it more it just wouldn’t have made sense. It would be just like we were stuffing the article.
And you can also look up here in your publish box. You’ll see that the SEO check is good, we got a green light so I’m happy with that.
And that’s all you have to do, it’s really simple.
