My friend John takes a look at the real meaning of the green dots in Yoast SEO. It’s a good run down of what it means.
SEO is a bit of a black art to me. John occasionally sends me an email to tell me what I should be doing better than I am, for which I’m super thankful.
The takeaway is that Yoast is a helper, but you have so much more to do if you want to rank for your topics. That means you need links to your site, relevant content...and many other things.
