Let's clarify once and for all what you really need to worry about with Yoast flags and how you should use it. I know Yoast Consumer Email List has a lot of other features, if you want to read about the tool as a whole and get technical and installation questions, check out the Yoast Complete Guide ! If you use any other plugin to check your On Page optimizations, the principles will be the same. I'll use Yoast as a base because it's the most popular.
So let's go! Understanding Yoast The first information that I think is essential for you to understand is that Yoast does not punish anyone and will not do anything to reduce your posts. I've already come across doubts like “if I do X, will Yoast harm me?”, so I think this clarification is essential. So what does Yoast do? Well, he will be a kind of arbiter of your content . Yoast will, in a way, simulate Google's crawlers and evaluate various On Page questions that it knows can influence the search engine to like or not like your text.
