Hi everyone, I think by now you might have realised I’m a junkie when it comes to free, online courses. This review is on Yoast Academy’s awesome free, online, short course on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) titled All-Round SEO.
Yoast is a plugin for WordPress. I use this plugin to help me in optimising my content so that it is search engine friendly, thereby helping me rank first on results.
Summary of the Course
The All-Round SEO Course by Yoast Academy consists of 8 sections. Each section has between 2 to 5 lessons. Most lessons consist of videos, PDF files, and a quiz. In order to pass the quiz, you would need to score at least 80 percent.
The sections are very thorough starting of by teaching you what a search engine is, some of the popular search engines around the world, and how they work. It thereafter speaks about keyword research, site structure, optimising images, site speed, to name but a few.
At the end of the course you get a certificate and a badge.
Why you should do this course
If you have already done the SEO for Beginners course you would have noticed that there is a whole lot more to learn. A great point to note is that some of the lessons you have completed in the SEO for Beginners course will automatically be completed in the All-Round course. So, you would finish it sooner, without having to re-do common lessons across the courses.
The All-Round SEO course brilliantly brings in all of the subcategories of SEO and articulates it in an easy to understand way. You will not be overwhelmed by all of these new concepts. This course has even more practical advice which you can implement right away. You would feel a lot more confident after doing this course.
In addition, if you use WordPress and the Yoast Plugin, the course provides details on how you can maximise the use of the Yoast Plugin.
