About this video:
The video you’re watching right now explains the functionalities of the Yoast SEO meta box. The term meta box might sound more difficult than it is. It’s a box that you’ll find below your post if you have installed the Yoast SEO plugin. This meta box consists of three elements: the Content optimization tab, the Social tab and the Advanced tab. This video discusses all three tabs in detail.

Content optimization tab:
The Content optimization tab is the first tab in the Yoast SEO meta box. On this tab, you’ll find the SEO analysis and the readability analysis. These analyses give you real-time feedback on the SEO and the readability of your content. For example, the SEO analysis gives you feedback on the elements of your snippet. It also shows you whether you’ve optimized your text properly for the focus keyphrase you’ve chosen. Obviously, we explain what snippets and focus keyphrases are (however, we do that in another lesson of the training and not in this video). The readability analysis gives you feedback on how readable your post is for a general audience. For example, this analysis checks whether you use enough transition words, what your Flesch Reading Ease score is, and whether your paragraphs and sentences are not too long.

Social tab:
The second tab of the meta box is called the Social tab. On this tab, you can manage what your post will look like when you share it on social media. You can manually modify the image, title, and description that will be shown on Facebook and Twitter. If you have Yoast SEO Premium, it’ll also show you your modifications in a preview, so you can check what your post will look like on these social media.

Advanced tab:
The last tab we’ll discuss is the Advanced tab. On the Advanced tab, you can manage whether or not search engines will add your post to their index or not. In other words: here you can manage whether or not your post or page can be found in the search engines. Make sure that you know what you’re doing here, because the functionalities on this tab are quite powerful.
