    Hi Darrel, do you know any companies that will work to improve SEO for an affordable price? In other countries?

    Great video!
    but isnt yoast SOE making a sitemap_index.xml that covers all sitemaps. I mean you dont need to add all the other sitemaps?
    If you read at Yoast homepage they only tell you to add sitemap_index.xml to the search console? Im little confused which sitemaps i should put in? If i should put in sitemap_index.xml and all others aswell?

    you can read it here:

  3. Hi Darrel,

    Am using Sydney Theme on my WordPress website After installing Yoast SEO my website stop navigating, when i click on any menu it will not navigate straight ahead i have have to scroll down the page, pls what will i do?

    Absolutely FANTASTIC tutorial! I know ZERO about tech and you made this process a breeze! And telling the viewers that setting up yoast isn’t sufficient for maximum SEO was great! Thank you SO much for that inside knowledge. I would’ve thought I was all done with SEO, otherwise. I will certainly recommend these videos elsewhere.

  6. I really hope I can get an answer back. I set my Titles & Metas, but it doesn’t updated when I search my web on google. I was told I need to set them before they can show up. What could I be missing here? I already saved everything. I will really appreciate an answer.

  9. Hi Darrel. Thanks for the wonderful tutorial!!
    I am just curious to get my website on google. How long does it generally takes? I am done with setting up the SEO today only.

  10. HI Darrel, quick question on freelancer, if I ask someone to help me to build my website, is it SAFE to share my wordpress account login with him? Thanks

    whenever i post anything new. I have to place sitemaps in the google search console again and again or is it done automatically?

  13. I assume Titles and Metas is only in the Premium version. All I show under SEO is Dashboard, Search Engine and Get Premium.

  14. Great video.  I have a general question.  When you are in the Titles & Metas and click on Homepage.  I don’t have that same options as you in my verison of yoast. I can’t click over to my home page in wordpress.  I think you are using Divi builder. I am using Extra.  I am hoping your experience with Divi may give you an idea for me.When I share my url on facebook it just randomly pics an image. That could be fixed with yoast by me changing the image and description…but I have a problem.  In Divi I am not showing as my home page.  I am just showing  So I have nowhere to go to change this. If I change it on the "home" page created in wordpress it doesn’t do anything because that is not my real home page.  It looks like Elegant theme sets a "homepage" that is a custom link in your menu that just shows domain. Further investigation shows that "homepage" is really a category in divi.  I guess Yoast can only work with pages and posts so I have no way of changing this "homepage" to have it pull a specific image and summary.  I guess I will have to sort through the mess that is Divi’s support page to see if there is a workaround.  Just was hoping maybe you had run into this.

    hey can u please help me. i try to verify me website at google search console but it says verification failed. i did everything right but i dont know why this error is showing


    1. In Google Search Console, delete the property you are using and then add a new property.
    2. Still in Google Search Console, copy the new meta name from the new property you created.
    3 In WordPress, paste the new meta name. (SEO < Dashboard < Webmaster tools < Google Search Console) *don’t forget to save
    4. While still in WordPress, (SEO < Search Console) Get google authorization code and Authenticate. *don’t forget to save
    5.Go back to Google Search Console and verify it.

    It should work.

    Thanks Darrel. This was super helpful. I am a VERY NEW BEGINNER to blogging. The page on Search Console Yoast SEO, I’m still getting 404 errors and I don’t know how to fix them. Can you PLEASE help me with that. I would assume that this would be important to correct so that my website can be searched, correct?
    Thanks so much.

    Hello, thanks for the video! In tools i only have bulk editor and import / export and not the file editor so i cant create robor text file 🙁 what should I do?

  19. What will happen with sitemap if you changing stuff on site. Do you need repeat step for adding sitemap on "google advance"?

  20. Hey there is no option to create robot.txt file in yoast 3.0… or its not in the same place. Do you happen to know what to do in that case? Thanks ☺️

  21. Hi there, any thoughts on this error message: Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt. ? please help.

  22. medora purrier

    All jokes aside, I watch a lot of your stuff and I like your voice and style …like we doing this thing together as a team. Your good I think I may owe you money ….I’m out!!!!

  23. Jeronimo Furtado

    how can i put the robot tx …
    I´m a starter , is my firt blog do you think I should go with the premium

  24. Thank you Darrel, this was really helpful. Could you also do a video about how freelancer works? Thank you 🙂

  25. You talk so fast like a teeny-bopper dweeb that we had to reduce the speed of the video just to understand you.

    Then after all of that, your video was really of no help.

  26. Darrel-Awesome video man, I almost made it to the end with NO issue. When creating my site map on the search console page, I kept getting an error after submission. Says "We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit".

    Under "Example" says "URL restricted by robots.txt". Any idea how I fix this so I can submit my various sitmaps?

  27. hi,i was really enjoying your video until it seemed you had a different plugin as i have none of the titles and metas etc,do you know why ?

  28. medora purrier

    Oh no you didn’t (black girl neck roll) say us girls use Pinteres. I do but hum ….lmbo lmbo that made me laugh. I love guys lol

  29. Christian Engleman

    Well done. Absolutely broke the ‘how do I start this’ barrier.
    And I got a kick out of the Pinterest comment.


    Thank you it’s very clear. I just wanted to know, what about visual composer? SEO Yoast doesn"t seem to recognize the content in visual composer, does it affect SEO?

  31. Darrel, I cannot thank you enough for this tutorial!

    I was struggling trying to get my website to work properly and was getting frustrated. You video was very comprehensive and extremely helpful. By the end of you video, my website was up and posting near the top of Google searches!

    I’m very grateful that you took the time to post this vital tutorial.

    Thanks again!

  32. I have a free WordPress blog account, don’t see option to add under plug-in. do we need to have a paid account to be able to add a plug in?
