Yoast SEO for WordPress – 11 Modules

Module 1 – Introduction to Yoast SEO

Internal Linking

Internal linking is one of the most important ways to optimize your
pages. Internal links do not only contribute to a better site structure, but
they also make it easier for search engines to find your content. A search
engine follows links to crawl and index your site, so your content needs
to have links to be findable.

Cornerstone Content

Cornerstone content is the core of your website. It consists of the best, most important articles on your site; the pages or posts you want to rank highest in the search engines. Cornerstone articles are usually relatively long, informative articles, combining insights from different blog posts and covering everything that’s important about a certain topic.

Choose your cornerstones carefully. Think of the four or five pages you would like someone to read when they first visit your website. These articles should be the cornerstones of your site. Which articles are most important to you? Which are the most complete and authoritative? Do these target the keywords you most want to rank for?
