Guys I am setting up a blog on word-press. I was using all in one seo plugin before but looks like he blog is having some issue with it (bugs might be). Planning to install Yoast but I don't know where to start. Can anyone tell me the perfect setting of Yoast please?


Thanks in Advance

The best configuration for Yoast SEO depends on individual website needs, but generally following Yoast's default settings and customizing them according to your specific SEO requirements is a good starting point.

I have been using Yoast SEO for my blogs for a long time; it is a great SEO plugin. You can definitely use it with default settings, but I like to make some customizations according to my website needs, listing out some of them, check if they are useful for you.

(y) It will automatically generate a sitemap, which people generally submit to their Google Search Console; by default, it will include all the pages in the sitemap, but I don't prefer some pages to be indexed in Google, such as categories, tags, or author pages. So I disable them.
  1. You can do that by going to the WordPress sidebar > Yoast SEO > Settings.
  2. Click on the Category field and Disable the button "Show categories in search results".
  3. Disable button - show categories in search results
  4. This will remove them from the sitemap as well. You can do this with all the fields that you want to remove.

(y) Go to SEO Basics in the same menu and add "Website name" & "Tagline" It will be added to your home page meta title and description.
(y) There are some options in Advanced settings such as Date Archives, Format Archives, etc. For which Yoast itself says, "we recommend that you disable this setting." but comes enabled as default. You can disable them as well.

I hope this helped you somehow.
