Yoast SEO 20.0 Update Makes Huge Changes

Posted by

Yoast released version 20.0 presents major modifications to the interface that are planned to make it easier to optimize a WordPress website.

New User Interface

The Yoast 20.0 user interface does away with the old technique of making users click numerous tabs to access pages with numerous options.

The brand-new version of Yoast introduces a card-style interface.

The card interface doesn’t require users to make choices the way a tab interface does. It presents the details as a series of features that a user can turn on or off. It’s an easier and more instinctive method of doing things.

Each classification has its own row, with cards representing settings that can be toggled on or shut off.

The structure of the settings page is like this:

Setting Category

Card– Card– Card

Each card, which is a setting, has an image at top, an explanation of the setting below the image, and in the footer area of the card is the on/off toggle and a Discover more link to a Yoast web page that describes that specific setting.

/ > When a setting is switched off, the image is shown in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that means the setting is allowed. A user can know, actually with a glimpse, which settings in any category, are switched on or

off simply by

whether a card has color or no color. That’s a macro view of the whole settings page that enables the user to understand the summary rapidly, something that isn’t possible with the old tab-and-click-and-scroll way of navigating the settings.

A user also has the option of clicking the”learn more”button to visit a website that describes the specific setting in detail. The”API Integrations” settings page follows a comparable card-style user interface that also makes it easy to see what integrations are possible, like incorporating Yoast into the Elementor workflow, and after that making it possible for that integration.

I’ve been practicing SEO for nearly 25 years and this variation of Yoast is the simplest to use SEO plugin I have actually used to date.

The new interface is so well thought out that essentially anybody of any knowledge level can utilize it without having to read a handbook. However if one needs background info that info is simply a click away.

Thijs de Valk, CEO of Yoast shared:

“I’m truly pleased with what the group has actually built in the Yoast SEO 20.0 release. … Our brand-new user interface shows we’ll keep delivering the best possible experience to our users.”

I agree, Yoast SEO 20.0 is an excellent step forward, users are going to value the modifications.
