    Hi, Darrel. I use Yoast SEO Pro and actually pay to the guys from Yoast to set it up for me. Strange but there is a big difference from your set up and what they have done. Especially in the ‘Titles & Metas’ section. I am getting really confused now 🙁

    is there a reason i dont see titles and metas and all the others. is it cause i am only trying the free version? Cheers great and easy to understand video very informative

    Brilliant tutorial, had spent days trying to come to terms and understand Yoast. In 35 minutes you did a superb job of visually and verbally cutting thru’ the jargonese and given me the confidence to go ahead and try to maximise Yoast’s capabilities.

    Hi Darrel. Thank you for this great tutorial- it’s very helpful for someone like me who is completely new to SEO and Yoast. Just one question: You know when you are talking about the tools and add new SEO Titles- are these suppose to be short keywords or a quick description? Do capitalisation rules make a difference? thank you!

    Thanks Great video. However I have encountered some errors about site maps firstly i had the same error as you and then installed the xml sitemap plugin but then another error occured yoast seo said you cannot have two plugins who generate sitemap so i had to deactivate the new plugin. Any help?

  25. Rich Kessler May 2, 2017 at 7:23 pm - Reply

    Yeah, my screen looks nothing like this. It’s a Yoast branded configuration screen with 10 steps. Of course it’s getting hung up on the Google profile for some reason

    It appears I don’t have Titles and Meta. Is there a way around this?

  28. Debra Needles May 2, 2017 at 7:24 pm - Reply

    When I go to titles and metas and then click homepage it does not give me the option to edit the front page itself and it says i have the most up to date version

    I do not have the same options, Do you have to pay?

  30. Petro Biotelleni May 2, 2017 at 7:25 pm - Reply

    You uploaded the sitemap.xml to the root of your website, but then you tell google to crawl "sitemap_index.xml" which is managed by Yoast itself (and therefore, independant from sitemap.xml) , is there a particular purpose to doing so ?

    So all I have under the homepage tab at around 4:00, is "Title Template: %%sitename%% %%page%% %%sep%% %%sitedesc%%" and "Meta description template:"

    I don’t have what you have. Any idea why?

    Why are you mispronouncing words though?

    Index-ed? Taximonies? What’s going on?

    great video the only one thing I could critique is I know us guys aren’t really big into Pinterest but I would highly suggest signing up creating a couple boards pins some pins to the boards and also put in some Pins with links to your website. great way to throw people to your store or blog!

    Hi Darrel,

    Thanks for the video. It is really helpful for the beginners like me. Is this much of work is sufficient for SEO and bring website on first page or we need to do much more.

    I have heard about on-page and off-page SEO. Does this belongs to on-page??….then what needs to be done in off-page SEO.

    Why is it that under my SEO tab is only has Dashboard, Search console and Go premium?

    Hey Darrel, thanks for such a wonderful tutorial, simple and so easy to follow. My only problem is that, Yoast does not offer me all the options to follow the tutorial to its natural end. Dashboard, Search Console and Premium are the only options available to me! Can you suggest a solution, please.


  42. Pikaflix Productions May 2, 2017 at 7:39 pm - Reply

    I dont have the drop down menu on the side? all i have is general. All it says is dashboard seach console and go premium

  43. jesse koven May 2, 2017 at 7:39 pm - Reply

    If you have the new updated version you have to go to the general tab and ENABLE advanced setting. your welcome

  44. Lori Appleman May 2, 2017 at 7:40 pm - Reply

    Why would you use the other site map generator when Yoast is already creating them? Why did you then not add it to search console? If you used the one manually created, would you need regenerate and upload again when changes are made? Would you add the manually created one on top of the ones already created by Yoast or instead?
