Yoast SEO introduces keyword performance tracking
Yoast SEO has announced that it has introduced keyword performance tracking in Yoast 17.9. If you update the Yoast SEO plugin to version 17.9, you will be able to track your keyphrase position changes in Google Search using Wincher.
Yoast SEO Keyword tracking
Yoast SEO keyword tracking has been made possible through a partnership between Wincher (a keyword rank tracker software) and Yoast SEO.
You do not have to install Wincher as it is integrated into Yoast SEO 17.9+ (free and premium plugin). All you need is to update Yoast to 17.9, then open a post or page and you will see a button below your post or page to connect with Wincher.
To track your keyword performance inside Yoast, you will be required to sign up for a Wincher free or premium account. You can track only five keywords on your entire website if you are using the free Wincher plan.
Premium Wincher plan starts from $29 per month and gives you up to 500 keywords to track.
It should also be noted that you can only track one focus Keyphrase per post or article if you are using the free version of the Yoast SEO Plugin. With Yoast SEO Premium, you can use multiple Keyphrases. Therefore, to get maximum benefits, it is recommended to have both Wincher and Yoast Premium.
