The year is drawing to a close and we are ready for our final release of 2020. In Yoast SEO 15.5, you’ll find support for the Hungarian language — including word forms in Premium. In addition, you’ll find a number of enhancements and fixes. Let’s meet Yoast SEO 15.5!
Improve your content
Having great content is essential for your site. But getting your content right isn’t that easy. Over the years, we built several language-based tools that we have fine-tuned based on our research and your experiences. For many, the SEO and readability analyses in Yoast SEO have become something of a teacher that gives you a pat on the back when you are doing awesome. Our tools help guide you towards great content — but it’s you who is doing the work. We can only do so much, but that’s why we keep working on sophisticated tools to help you take your writing to the next level.
You can find one of those smart tools in Yoast SEO Premium: word form support. For fourteen languages, we can now better find the keyphrases inside complex sentences. This is because we understand grammatical forms. A very simple example would be the word ‘puppy’, with Premium, Yoast SEO would also recognize the word ‘puppies’ as this is a relevant word form. Of course, this works for complex keyphrases as well.
In Yoast SEO 15.5, we’re adding another language to our roster: Hungarian. For free, we’re adding the passive voice assessment and the consecutive sentences assessments, and improving keyphrase recognition. In Premium, we add full word form support for the Hungarian language.
Enhancements and fixes
Yoast SEO 15.5 comes with quite a few fixes and enhancements. We’ve added breadcrumb schema.org structured data to the homepage and we’ve removed the Open Graph and Twitter author metadata on pages and other non-post post types. We’ve also removed support for the Facebook App ID, as Facebook has indicated this feature is no longer used on their side. Last but not least, we’ve added a notification that tells you to install and activate the Yoast SEO Multilingual plugin when you have the WPML plugin installed and activated.
Of course, we’ve also fixed several bugs with regards to unable to save settings and missing translations. For all fixes, please see the changelog for Yoast SEO 15.5
