Yoast SEO 20.0 Update Makes Huge Changes

Posted by

Yoast launched version 20.0 presents significant changes to the user interface that are planned to make it simpler to optimize a WordPress site.

New Interface

The Yoast 20.0 interface gets rid of the old approach of making users click numerous tabs to access pages with many choices.

The new version of Yoast presents a card-style user interface.

The card user interface does not need users to make choices the method a tab interface does. It provides the info as a series of features that a user can switch on or off. It’s a much easier and more intuitive way of doing things.

Each category has its own row, with cards representing settings that can be toggled on or shut off.

The structure of the settings page resembles this:

Setting Classification

Card– Card– Card

Each card, which is a setting, has an image at top, a description of the setting below the image, and in the footer location of the card is the on/off toggle and a Discover more link to a Yoast website that explains that particular setting.

/ > When a setting is switched off, the image is displayed in a gray scale (no color). If the image has color that indicates the setting is made it possible for. A user can know, actually with a look, which settings in any category, are turned on or

off just by

whether a card has color or no color. That’s a macro view of the entire settings page that enables the user to comprehend the summary quickly, something that isn’t possible with the old tab-and-click-and-scroll way of browsing the settings.
