Yoast SEO 20.0 Update Makes Huge Modifications

Posted by

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

New Interface

The Yoast 20.0 user interface gets rid of the old approach of making users click on numerous tabs to access pages with various choices.

The new variation of Yoast presents a card-style interface.

The card user interface does not require users to choose the way a tab interface does. It presents the info as a series of features that a user can turn on or off. It’s a simpler and more user-friendly way of doing things.

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

The structure of the settings page resembles this:

Setting Classification

Card– Card– Card

Each card, which is a setting, has an image at top, a description of the setting underneath the image, and in the footer area of the card is the on/off toggle and a Learn More link to a Yoast web page that discusses that specific setting.

/ > When a setting is shut off, the image is displayed in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that means the setting is made it possible for. A user can know, literally with a glance, which settings in any classification, are turned on or

off just 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 introduction rapidly, something that isn’t possible with the old tab-and-click-and-scroll method of browsing the settings.

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

I have actually been practicing SEO for almost 25 years and this variation of Yoast is the simplest to utilize SEO plugin I have actually used to date.

The brand-new interface is so well thought out that essentially anybody of any understanding level can utilize it without having to check out a handbook. But if one requires background details that info is simply a click away.

Thijs de Valk, CEO of Yoast shared:

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

I agree, Yoast SEO 20.0 is a fantastic advance, users are going to appreciate the modifications.
