Powerful WordPress SEO (Text and Search Engine Optimization) – Yoast SEO plugin with synonyms and keyword distribution

The text semantics such as synonyms and the automatic recognition of keyword distribution and relation is difficult. What does a certain word mean in a certain constellation? What "Mars" are you talking about? Have you ever tried to find all definitions of "run"? In most cases, context and relevance to the topic is everything. You can help humans and machines better understand text by adding context. This is one of the reasons why Yoast SEO for WordPress and WooCommerce is now adding support for synonyms and similar keywords, giving you more flexibility to improve your text! This feature, along with keyword distribution, is now available for premium users of Yoast SEO 7.8.

Probably the best WordPress SEO plugin Yoast with new functions for better SEO texts

WordPress SEO by Yoast - New Premium Feature: Synonyms

Content marketing has long been about figuring out what your main (focus) keyword is and adding that word or phrase to multiple places in your text. While this has worked well so far, what about other spellings, plurals, and synonyms? Not only is clear search intent more important than ever, but search engines are getting smarter and smarter every day. They increasingly understand what a text is about by looking at the context in which those focus keywords appear. In this context, a text is created and placed in relation to the search query.

Yoast SEO always works with a single focus keyword or multiple focus keywords in the premium version for under €100. So far, a maximum of 5 fixed terms/words and focus keywords have been considered in their fixed spelling. But that changes with the new functions.

The developers behind the WordPress plugin for SEO Yoast have been working on new language-based SEO checks for some time. With the synonyms and the keyword distribution, it is a first step towards AI - artificial intelligence! All Premium users can now add synonyms and related terms for additional checking in the text.

Write texts about "bicycles"? Your synonyms will probably include “bicycle, bike, ride a bike, two-wheeler” and now you can add those terms. The Yoast SEO Plugin automatically checks how you use these terms in your article and gives further hints on readability, relation and improvement possibilities for your SEO text directly in WordPress or WooCommerce.

New premium function: keyword distribution in SEO texts

If you have added a few synonyms for your focus keyword, Yoast SEO will now check whether they are well distributed in the text - similar to WDF*IDF. The SEO plugin takes a close look at the full text from the WordPress editor and makes sure you distribute your focus keyword(s) and synonyms evenly and realistically. Key words and synonyms are highlighted in an extra visible way, which makes text work in the WordPress editor even easier.

The focus keyword is only used to determine the keyword density. It is proven and extremely important that the optimization of the SEO text should be used and identified for the most common keyword or a maximum of 3-5 main keywords. These terms result from professional keyword research. Here it is determined which terms are relevant for your target group.

And according to the developers, that's just the beginning. Yoast SEO language capabilities will be improved with upcoming updates + language improvements for German, French, Spanish and Italian. The aim is to optimize and perfect the morphology, related keywords and the upcoming recalibration of the SEO analyzes in Yoast SEO for many languages, so that writing content can take place directly in WordPress with the powerful editor. And that was only the first step towards a more comprehensive content analysis and understanding of the subject of a text.

Always ask yourself the following questions with every SEO text and in content marketing:

  • How do you use synonyms and related topics in your writing?
  • How do I meaningfully integrate synonyms and other spellings?
  • Can I find out further improvements by analyzing the text later, or is it fitting?
  • Have I written at least 350 words better than 800 and used appropriate headings?
  • Is the text easy to understand and written in short sentences without convoluting?

By the way, Yoast will also run in the WordPress Gutenberg Editor! So update-safe and usable with WordPress and WooCommerce in the future without any problems.
