    I have gmail account and when I go to Webmaster Tools in WP and click on Google Webmaster Tools, I see a different screen and Google cannot verify my site. What am I missing here?

    great video the only one thing I could critique is I know us guys aren't really big into Pinterest but I would highly suggest signing up creating a couple boards pins some pins to the boards and also put in some Pins with links to your website. great way to throw people to your store or blog!

    Hi Darrel,

    Thanks for the video. It is really helpful for the beginners like me. Is this much of work is sufficient for SEO and bring website on first page or we need to do much more.

    I have heard about on-page and off-page SEO. Does this belongs to on-page??….then what needs to be done in off-page SEO.

    So all I have under the homepage tab at around 4:00, is "Title Template: %%sitename%% %%page%% %%sep%% %%sitedesc%%" and "Meta description template:"

    I don't have what you have. Any idea why?

    Why would you use the other site map generator when Yoast is already creating them? Why did you then not add it to search console? If you used the one manually created, would you need regenerate and upload again when changes are made? Would you add the manually created one on top of the ones already created by Yoast or instead?

    Hi Darrel. Thank you for this great tutorial- it's very helpful for someone like me who is completely new to SEO and Yoast. Just one question: You know when you are talking about the tools and add new SEO Titles- are these suppose to be short keywords or a quick description? Do capitalisation rules make a difference? thank you!

    Yeah, my screen looks nothing like this. It's a Yoast branded configuration screen with 10 steps. Of course it's getting hung up on the Google profile for some reason

    You uploaded the sitemap.xml to the root of your website, but then you tell google to crawl "sitemap_index.xml" which is managed by Yoast itself (and therefore, independant from sitemap.xml) , is there a particular purpose to doing so ?

    Hey Darrel, thanks for such a wonderful tutorial, simple and so easy to follow. My only problem is that, Yoast does not offer me all the options to follow the tutorial to its natural end. Dashboard, Search Console and Premium are the only options available to me! Can you suggest a solution, please.

    Brilliant tutorial, had spent days trying to come to terms and understand Yoast. In 35 minutes you did a superb job of visually and verbally cutting thru' the jargonese and given me the confidence to go ahead and try to maximise Yoast's capabilities.
