Hello Guys,

 

I see that Jason Dexter and other SEO Guru's have said YOAST is good for gathering information about your SEO state of play and what can be done to make it better.

 

Is there an alternative for a none WordPress site that can provide this helping hand?

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Depends what you mean by 'non-wordpress'.

 

I see you've said static in the title, but do you mean actual static static? As in no database or anything, if so then your best bet is to plug in Google anlytics and read up on a few tutorials. Also run your site through the various SEO testing sites and see what they bring up. There's no easy install plug and play option for static sites as far as i know. Could be wrong though (would like to be).

Sorry I may be misunderstanding what YOAST actually does as I haven't had the chance to install it to a WordPress site of mine.

 

I thought what it did was give you pointers as to what could be done better on your site to increase your Search Engine ranking.

 

Does it simply just do what Google Analytics does then? Provide data about visitors?

YOAST effectively makes sure various aspects of your site are optimised for search and if it doesn't think a certain part is it will tell you so and make a suggestion to fix it. For example it might tell you that none of your keywords appear in the page title or that your page title is to long/short. GA doesn't do this. It's worth checking out Google webmaster tools though and also some basic tutorials which will probably tell you 90% of what you need to know to be pretty successful if you are just targeting local stuff.

Thanks jheg, so I was along the right lines with my thoughts. I wish there was something like YOAST for static HTML sites - other than Google Webmaster Tools.

I searched GitHub for SEO and found YOAST javascript: https://github.com/Yoast/YoastSEO.js

 

This can be implemented for static sites. But you need a front end so that for example you have a MarkDown editor that which content is read by YoastSEO.js and then present the result.

I plan  to implement this into my cloud service: https://appernetic.io

GitHub is the shit, and there is too much good stuff there. :-). Probably the same with Bitbucket...

Thanks for the info. I was searching for a solution for the same topic to find an seo solution for a none WordPress site because all my work experience are limited to WordPress sites.

 

Can you please provide more details about how cam I implement YoastSEO.js for static sites ?? I need to do on-page seo review 

 

Thanks & Regards

Yoast is the best plugins for WordPress. The Yoast plugins have much flexibility like setting up titles, Meta descriptions, and social sharing. It also gives you the sitemap and basic schema features for generally beginner friendly.
