Yoast SEO Premium 19.1: new front-end SEO inspector

technical SEO. Like the concept of meta tags and the various tags that Google sees on your page. At the same time, it can be difficult to learn about these things because you might not know where to look for them on your website. The front-end SEO inspector helps to familiarize yourself with these concepts, as you can easily view your SEO settings and metadata, all without having to spend time looking!

Enhancement in Yoast SEO Premium 19.1

We’re adding an enhancement to our SEO analysis that will help you speed up your workflow when editing. You’ll notice that there’s an icon of a pencil next to some assessments, like the meta description length check, in our SEO analysis. Clicking on the icon allows you to edit the value there. Pretty handy for making quick adjustments!

New schema support for public structures in Local SEO 14.6

In this release, we’re adding support for all the CivicStructure Schema types. Civic structure is probably an uncommon and confusing term. In the sense of schema, it refers to public entities that are vital to the lives of people in a city or town. For example, those are your museum, bus station, art theater, or cemetery. The detailed list can be found on Schema.org.

Basically, you can now set a location to be, for example, a museum, city hall, or any other place of worship and benefit from all Yoast Local SEO has to offer. Our schema will let Google know that your business, which is situated in this location, is in fact a theater, or a fire station. That’ll potentially put you on the (local) map when people search about you (or search for you).

Bug fixes and schema adjustment in Yoast SEO 19.5

Bug-fixing is a crucial part of any software release. In this update, we’re fixing a couple of small bugs that may affect some users when using the plugin.

Next to that, we’re making adjustments to the way we output schema. Particularly, we’ve changed the order in which schema nodes are output. From `Organization / Person > WebSite > WebPage > Article` to `Article > WebPage > WebSite > Organization / Person`. This fixes validation issues for the Schema validator and puts the most important schema content first.
