Yoast SEO for Drupal was one of the much awaited drupal module.
Yoast SEO WordPress plugin is a big hit in WordPress blogger community. But this plugin was missing from Drupal contributed modules list since long time, but now wait is over. Yoast SEO for Drupal module is made available in drupal by Yoast SEO & GoalGorilla.
As this module is new to Drupal I am writing this blog about How to use this module in effective way to achieve maximum results.
First thing first, As per any other drupal module you need to download this module from official d.org page (link : https://www.drupal.org/project/yoast_seo)Yoast SEO for Drupal
Keep this module in your sites/all/module directory and enable it from module list page.
After enabling this module, you might want to give permission to different user roles depending on your requirement. If you have “content writer” role then for this role you need to enable “Use Yoast SEO for Drupal” this permission for Drupal permission grid.
Now you need to decide which all content types should use this module feature, so go to content types setting and edit content type of your choice e.g. Structures >> Content Types >> Blog entry, At the bottom of edit page you will able to see “Yoast”SEO for Drupal setting”, Click on “Enable” checkbox.
Now we are done with setup of this module, Let’s check How to use this module. Head on the “Add content” form for the content type you enabled this setting (my case it’s Blog entry)
Start writing content as usual, when you are done with all blog writing, scroll down little bit to find Yoast SEO section.
Now our SEO operations starts here:
1. Enter your keywords in “Focus Keyword” textbox right after this you will able to see list of suggestions
see screenshot below.
2. Go through list of suggestions and try to modify your content as much possible.
3. Regarding “Snippet editor” this section is editable and you can modify as per your need. These are nothing but meta title and meta description for your blog. If you feel editing this “Snippet editor” section is less user-friendly then our old drupal meta tittle is best way to add meta title
(See below adding meta title & description by Metatag module)
You can see the suggestion will turn red to green as you modify the content of your blog, I modified some of the text to achive "SEO:Good" remark see below.
Post your feedback in comment section below and feel free to share this blog. Cheers.
