Last month, I passed my Social Media Marketing Certification with Hootsuite Academy, which I thoroughly enjoyed, enabling me to take our social media marketing services to the next level. It also gave me the ‘learning bug’ so I started to hunt around for my next course.
As my main passion and background is SEO, as well as my love of the WordPress platform, I thought it would be fitting to signup to the Yoast SEO For WordPress training course. 95% of our client websites use WordPress and Yoast SEO is by far the best SEO plugin available, which we use on every WordPress site we work on. I knew that being able to officially demonstrate our proficiency in setting up and using this plugin would install a lot of confidence in our customers.
What Does The Yoast SEO For WordPress Training Cover?
The training course covers each and every aspect of the plugin, including:
- Hidden features
- General settings
- Titles and metas
- Social settings
- XML sitemaps
- Advance settings
- Search Console and redirects
- SEO meta box
- Yoast SEO extensions
- Yoast SEO updates
The course consists of a mixture of explanation and instruction videos as well as quizzes to test what you have learnt. To find out more about the course, watch the following video:

I am pleased to say that I passed the course with flying colours and one of the best aspects of this course is that you are expected to study additional modules with every major plugin update, to keep the certification valid. This means that our knowledge in the plugin is always up-to-date with all the latest features.
If you run a website that is based on WordPress and you want to get more traffic and leads, we can help you make the most from this plugin. We can include the setup of Yoast SEO in our SEO Freelancer package, or we can offer it as a standalone service for £40 (we offer this at a discounted rate if you are one of our resellers).
