To get your posts optimized for better ranking with the use of Yoast SEO plugin, here are the steps you are to follow.

On-Page SEO and Readability.

Now that you are done pasting the code on your site, you have to learn how to optimize your contents using Yoast features for better ranking. To get this done, we need to create a demo WordPress site on a FREE hosting so that we can take advantage of the article checker and SERP preview tools of the Yoast SEO plugin.

To start with, you have to create a free wordpress site on 000webhostUse the tutorial to set up your demo WordPress site. This might be a long process, but I assure you, it will be worth the effort!

After the registration, login to the Dashboard of your demo WordPress site and go to Plugins –> Add New. Search for “Yoast“. Click on Install Now. Then Activate It.

Now, all you need to do is, before publishing any post, copy and paste the whole article into a new post of the dummy WordPress and optimize your article according to the suggestions provided by the Yoast SEO plugin.
Now, let’s copy an article from Blogger to the demo WordPress site.

Also, scroll down and copy the “Search Description” from Blogger to the “Meta description” field of Yoast.

Now, let’s suppose that this article was meant to target the keyword “sample“. Thus, put the target keyword in the focus keyword field of Yoast.


Now, as you can see, there are unhappy faces besides SEO and Readability.

Our target is to optimize our article in such a way that both the faces turn happy green.

You will now scroll down and click on the SEO Analysis drop-down menu

Here you will see all the mistakes that are there in your article. You need to fix those mistakes one by one in your article so that its On-Page SEO gets brushed up.

After fixing all the SEO related problems that Yoast SEO points out in your article, the red unhappy face beside the SEO Analysis button must turn into a happy green one.

Then click on Readability.



Now fix all the readability issues that Yoast SEO suggests in your article. You can click on the eye button to locate the exact line where the problem is on. Make the face beside the Readability button turn green as well!

After fixing all the SEO and readability issues in your article, just copy the article from WordPress again and paste it to Blogger and then publish it!

I would suggest you optimize all your old articles and as well all the new articles that you will publish in the future, using this method.

You’ve successfully SEO optimized your Blogger blog and will see the huge growth in your rankings and organic traffic, soon! Keep creating quality content!
