For over 10 years, Yoast SEO has helped WordPress users all around the world with their SEO. And we’re quite proud to say that with more than 12 million active users, it’s one of the most popular SEO plugins in the WordPress community. We’re not going anywhere, our WordPress plugins will remain one of our main focuses. But we are bringing Yoast SEO to another platform: Shopify! Just like our Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin, this Shopify app will help users work on their own SEO and create pages that both people and search engines will love. And to properly launch our newest product, we’re hosting a Shopify event!
The Yoast SEO app will soon be on Shopify
In two weeks, on the 18th of January, we’ll release our new Yoast SEO on Shopify app and we’re super excited! We can’t wait to bring our product to a whole new platform and help its users with their SEO. At the moment, we’re still dotting the last few i’s, but it’s almost ready to go. So if you have a Shopify store, or know someone who does, make sure to keep an eye on our website or the app store in Shopify. Yoast SEO will be joining Shopify very soon! If you want to read more about why we’re introducing this new product, make sure to read the blog post in which our CEO Thijs de Valk explains why we’ve brought Yoast SEO to Shopify.
But what can this new Shopify app do for me?
Now you might be wondering what you can expect from this new app on Shopify. Similar to our WordPress plugin, it helps you optimize your pages by giving you feedback on the findability and readability of your pages. This feedback helps you improve your pages to get them higher in the search results and improve your sales. In addition to this feedback, the Yoast SEO for Shopify app also gives you control over how your pages are shown on Google and social media. And last but certainly not least, it actually outputs all the needed SEO meta data and a complete Schema graph for your site, which search engines can use to understand your pages even better. There are a few other functionalities that come with this new app. If you want to dive into that, make sure to check out our Yoast SEO for Shopify product page.
