Get Yoast all green

Last Update: Jul 30, 2016


Morning guys and gals

I have a request yesterday to show training to help with getting Yoast all green and if you follow this then you will get all green BUT follow it exactly

The first Step – Pick a title and the Title I have used is ” Best way to set up Yoast plugin” I am also going to use the keyword Best and so I have put the keyword Best into the focus keyword position.

The second step – is to copy the title and move mouse over the heading button and pick the heading 3, click on it and the paste the title so now it appears as a subheading

The next step is to hit the return tab and this will bring you down to the next line, which will be the paragraph and just paste the title as the first line of the paragraph. I have just added the words so you will get all Green is as follows –

If you look above you will see the following: The title, the subheading and the first line of your paragraph. Now the paragraph is what I am writing now so I will continue as your paragraph. I have now added a read more tag and put it underneath the line a subtitle that I have called The first step this is in heading 5

Now we have the main title in H1, the subtitle in H3, the first line of your paragraph in paragraph setting, a read more line, a subheading in H5 and the above text

Meta description

Now I have added Meta description in H5 and we will scroll down to look at the Yoast SEO below and it says no Meta description. So this is what we will do first. Copy the text ” the Best way to set up Yoast plugin so you will get all Green is as follows” and go back down to the Edit snippet box. Open the box and paste this in. But because this is too short for a Meta description you will have to add the words “but please be careful to follow everything step by step” and then close the box.

Scroll down and it says no images appears on this page. Scroll up to the Add media box and select an image.

This is the image I have used and you must make sure that the alt tag says the keyword which is "Best"

This is just a picture that I had spare but you can use anything that you want when you write your blog text,

Scroll back down and it says no outboard links appear so what you need to do is add an outboard link so I have chosen the word Media. I have used Wikipedia and the word Media and so I now have an outboard link.

All Green

I now have all green and so will add a couple of tags before I publish and the tags used are Testing, setup, and Plugin.


Make sure the permalink has no stop words and remove if necessary


Now please check all your spelling and also use word as well to check everything is correct

That is now all green and all good fun!

Great Paul. Question...permalink...what is it and where do I see it? Still learning bout SEO.

Hi Liz - the permalink is the URL of your blog or page
Not if you look at your title and then look slowly down the page a few lines you will see the words permalink in small letters and tour title next to it with dashes in between each word all very small

Jus answered o the other blog

Same as Metatag then?

No Liz does a different job

Ok. Sorry for the stupid question ;-) Just making sure I understand the difference!

That's ok / you cab google anything in google

I see...Sorry Paul. Metatag is the description of the post for search engines the permalink is the url. Got it! Again...I think I'm tired. Had another duh moment. What's going on with me ?!

Yes but if I ask the quesions here, I might be able to help others ;-)

True also you have your own page search bar with your WA desk top

Having you as a friend is like having Richard Branson or Elon Musk as house guests.

Thanks Paul !

You are welcome but I am just a simple guy

Simple like Einstein !

Oh that was my name in the other life!

I was a Koala in my other life !

Good info on Yoast! Thanks for sharing, Paul.

You are welcome Glen as it will help many people

I like it Paul thank you, my friend, I will have another crack tomorrow. a work in progress cheers.

OK buddy just follow exactly and that is the trick

Hey Paul, I have a question. I am totally confused now. So far I always used key WORDS and learnt in the WA training that we need to use whole sentences as keywords, Jaaxy etc. to find the search terms and how they work.
Now you use just "best" as keyword.
How does this go together? does anyone search for BEST?
Thanks for the answer

Hi again - No this was just an example and the WA training is the way to go as it works the best -
However, you can also use a single keyword but you will have to put it with something else when you search

Thanks Paul :)

You are welcome as always Jude

Great training Paul. Thanks. Cheers Kev

Hi Kev and thanks

OI have Yoast in one of my websites, in others SEO all in one, like the one which I created here. Is there a difference? Does any work better? SO far it seems to me that with Yoast you have to work more yourself writing summaries etc. Which do you prefer? Or do you use both?

I was using Yoast before I found WA. What I like about Yoast is the SEO data entry is on every page and post. With all in one SEO, I'm told you need to go to another section to fill it out.

My reading also indicated there was more to fill out on all in one SEO than Yoast because Yoast made SEO decisions for you while all in one is adjustable.

But I'd like to hear other comments on this.

For my Yoast is far better

Wow, I didn't know about needing to go somewhere else for All-in one. I just noticed that I couldn't change anything in the summary - and that there was not much below to be done.
Do you know how to handle that? or anyone else reading this here?
Thanks for the answer Vynette!

Do not forget that this is for "Yoast" which is a different plugin than "all in one"

Ok, thanks. So, if I understand right, in Seo all in One I don't have to do anything??? Just write and post the post?

No. You need to tell the plug in the data you want sent to search engines

Where and how do I do that? Do you know Vynette?

In all in one SEO? I'm not sure. There is a recent video training under the live video classes in the left margin. I think it was 3 or 4 weeks ago. Perhaps you will find your answers there.

Thanks for the answer and excuse me to have bothered you with the question.....

I'm not bothered by it Heidi. I hope the video was helpful. I haven't seen the whole video yet so I was uncertain if what you were looking for was there. I saw part of it live but was called away.
I use Yoast more than all in one so I don't really know much about all in one. I looked at one of the free sites I set up here where it was installed for us and it was on each page. (I didn't look at posts) Maybe what I read was old or it was set up differently.
Best of luck

Thank you Vynette, for the explanation. This SEO thing is still something I have to figure out - and I am confident that I will in time.
Good luck to you! Hope to meet you again!

Thanks Paul, this is really helpful.

You are welcome

Thanks Paul, i'll give it a try.

Great and you will be green to go !
