How To Use Yoast Seo In Blogger

Yoast SEO is a robust tool that can significantly improve the visibility of your website on search engines. However, since it is a WordPress Plugin, it is not directly compatible with Blogger. But don’t fret! We have a solution. Let’s delve into it step-by-step.

Step 1: Set Up a WordPress Site

Due to Yoast SEO’s incompatibility with Blogger, you need to set up a basic WordPress site. This site doesn’t have to be complex; its only purpose is to generate the SEO data with Yoast SEO.

Step 2: Install Yoast SEO on Your WordPress Site

Once your WordPress site is up and running, navigate to Plugins > Add New and search for “Yoast SEO“. Click Install and then Activate. Once activated, you will see a new menu item labeled SEO.

Step 3: Generate SEO Data

Create a new post and write your content. As you write, Yoast SEO will give you real-time feedback on your SEO practices. Once you’ve finished writing, navigate to the Yoast SEO post meta box. Here, you can edit the title and meta description. Make sure to save your changes!

Step 4: Copy the SEO Data

After saving your changes, right-click anywhere on the page and click View Page Source. Find the section that starts with “<title>” and ends with “</head>“. Copy this entire block of code.

Step 5: Implement the SEO Data to Blogger

Go back to your Blogger post and switch the view from Compose to HTML. Find the section that starts with “<head>” and ends with “</head>“. Replace this entire block of code with the code you copied from the WordPress site. Save your changes.

And there you go! You’ve just implemented Yoast SEO data into your Blogger post. By following this step-by-step guide, you can optimize all your Blogger posts for SEO using the powerful tools provided by Yoast SEO.

Remember, while this workaround is effective, it is not as seamless as using Yoast SEO on a WordPress site. If SEO is a critical part of your blogging strategy, you might want to consider switching to WordPress entirely.
