Yoast, the leading WordPress SEO plugin, is seamlessly integrated in Elementor, allowing you to access and modify your page’s SEO settings without leaving Elementor, for a more efficient workflow. The same features that have always been available in the WordPress editor are now available right within the Elementor Panel.
You can access your page’s Yoast analytics in either of two ways. Either click the Hamburger Menu in the upper left corner of the Elementor Panel and choose the Yoast SEO tab, or click the gear icon in the lower left corner of the Elementor Panel and choose the Yoast SEO tab.
The Focus keyphrase is the main keyword or phrase that you most wish to have rank well in search engines. Enter one phrase here. This phrase will be used in the SEO analysis tab. If you wish, you can also search for related keyphrases with the SEMrush integration by clicking the optional Get related keyphrases button. If you choose to use this feature, you will need to log into your SEMrush account in the popup that appears.
Note: Most options include a help icon, which you can click for detailed information about that option.
The Readability Analysis option uses an algorithm to judge the readability of the page or post content. It highlights problem areas and gives you actionable suggestions to fix your content.
The SEO Analysis option uses your selected Focus keyphrase to make suggestions to improve the content, such as internal links, the meta description, and more. You can use these suggestions to make changes right in the Elementor Editor. The analysis is done in real-time, and the changes are reflected in the sidebar.
If you are a Yoast SEO Premium user, you’ll find premium features, such as Add related keyphrase, which lets you focus on more than one keyphrase, here, and throughout the other options in the sidebar.
