Yoast SEO 20.0 Update Makes Huge Modifications

Posted by

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

New User Interface

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

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

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

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

The structure of the settings page is like this:

Setting Classification

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 location of the card is the on/off toggle and a Learn More link to a Yoast website that describes that particular setting.

/ > When a setting is shut off, the image is shown in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that suggests the setting is enabled. A user can know, actually with a glance, which settings in any category, are turned on or

off simply by

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

A user also has the alternative of clicking the”learn more”button to visit a web page that explains the particular setting in detail. The”API Integrations” settings page follows a similar card-style interface that also makes it simple to see what integrations are possible, like integrating Yoast into the Elementor workflow, and then making it possible for that integration.

I have actually been practicing SEO for almost 25 years and this version of Yoast is the simplest to use SEO plugin I’ve utilized to date.

The new interface is so well considered that essentially anyone of any knowledge level can utilize it without having to read a manual. But if one needs background information that information is simply a click away.

Thijs de Valk, CEO of Yoast shared:

“I’m really proud of what the team has built in the Yoast SEO 20.0 release. … Our brand-new interface shows we’ll keep delivering the very best possible experience to our users.”

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