Let’s talk about the acquisition of Yoast SEO!
Yes this is big news, because Yoast has been one of the biggest SEO plug-ins with at least 10 million installations! It has been acquired by New Fold Digital, if you don’t know New Fold Digital, it’s a hosting company.
But important information whenever a popular plug-in gets bought out, the results are usually not optimistic in the long run. I say this knowing that I am not a natural skeptic. For the moment there are no changes planned for the product, the team is staying in place, the product is not going to change, so don’t expect drastic changes to the plug-in just because it was acquired. If you are worried and want to anticipate the replacement of Yoast by another plug-in, follow this link. I’ve been using Yoast for a long time as a pro because it didn’t meet all my requirements, I’m very happy with it!
