Blogspot Yoast SEO Plugin Now Available, Start Using Yours
Over the years, many Blogspot bloggers have been looking for how to start using the Blogspot Yoast SEO plugin because of the amazing functions of the tool to their WordPress counterparts.
Have you ever imagined that you could start using the tool as a Blogspot user without paying any monthly or annual fee? Well, it's super-possible and that we'll show you now.

The first step in using the Blogspot Yoast SEO Plugin is by activating the search description. Unlike other Blogging platforms, Blogger hides the search description on default or rather, Blogger disables it for Blogspot users unless you want to activate it.

To activate the Blogspot search description, just follow the steps below:
  • Log-into your Blogspot dashboard
  • Go to 'settings'
  • Click on search preferences

  • Reload the tab and head over to your 'create new post'

  • Click on the box below the 'Location', the one written 'Search Description'
  • Type in your 'Search Description' and edit your Permalink

How To Install The Blogspot Yoast SEO Plugin

Don't mind me, you can't install the Blogspot yoast SEO plugin because Blogspot to an extent doesn't accommodate third party plugins. The plug-in can't be installed, but it can be used easily.
Unlike the WordPress platform, you'll have to use a different website for the articles and that's what we'll have to talk about.

  • Visit Real-time Content Analysis and start typing (you can also paste an already finished article in the box)

  • The first bullet is showing red because the plugin is not installed in my website, so you can ignore it. However make sure you include an internal like in your main article
  • The next step is to use the Content assessments tool. This will determine how good your content is to your readers
  • The bullets once again should all be green
