Hey folks, Jono here. I’m writing to you today with mixed emotions as I have some big news to share. After over five years of working with the incredible team at Yoast, I’ve decided it’s time for me to step down as Head of SEO and move on to new adventures.
I want to express my deep gratitude to all of you. Whether you’re a user of our software, a fellow SEO enthusiast, a colleague, or a member of our vibrant community, you’ve made my time at Yoast truly special. I’ve always been passionate about our mission of “SEO for everyone,” and it’s been an absolute joy to work towards this goal with all of you.
I’ve loved every moment of my journey at Yoast. From our deep dives into technical SEO, to exploring emerging technologies, to reacting to Google’s constant changes and updates, it’s been a wild ride.
I’m proud of the work we’ve done – particularly in the field of structured data. We’ve done incredible work in making structured data more accessible and understandable for everyone. I strongly believe that our approach to schema.org has had a significant positive impact on the web. Seeing how our work has helped websites improve their SEO and reach a wider audience has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.
But as much as I’ve loved my time at Yoast, I believe it’s time to explore new horizons. I’m unsure what’s next for me, but I look forward to finding out. It’s safe to say that I’ll still be involved in the world of WordPress and technical SEO consulting and cheering on the Yoast team from the sidelines.
Before I sign off, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Yoast. I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the industry’s most talented and dedicated people, and I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved together.
So, here’s to the next chapter. I’m excited about what the future holds, and I wish you all well. Remember, SEO is for everyone, and I can’t wait to see how Yoast continues to make the web a better place.
