Yoast WordPress SEO update brings content analysis features


Yoast has updated its WordPress SEO plugin with new content analysis features in partnership with Linkdex.

According to Yoast’s announcement, the WordPress SEO plugin is now sporting a new Page Analysis tab, which runs a series of tests on your body content and provides suggestions that’ll improve your piece’s success in search engine rankings.

For instance, the plugin now runs a Flesch Reading Ease test, checks for headings, images and links, keyword density, and a variety of other keyword-related checks.

Although Linkdex is a premium service that requires a paid subscription, the WordPress SEO will remain free and open-source, said Joost de Valk, Yoast’s owner, in a blog post.
