Installation Guide for Yoast SEO: News

Last update: 17 January, 2017

Using the News SEO plugin is very, very easy.

Please make sure you’ve activated Yoast SEO or Yoast SEO Premium and that your website has already been submitted to Google News, as it is required for the News SEO plugin to work and have any effect.

As soon as you’ve paid for the plugin you’ll receive an email with a download link and your license key, looking something like this:

You simply download the zip file and then go to Plugins → Add New. Here you click on the Upload link:

Once you’ve clicked that link you’ll click the “Choose File” button, locate the zip file on your computer and then press “Install Now”.

It should upload well, after which you should click “Activate Plugin”:

Now that the plugin is active, you should have a new News SEO menu item in your SEO menu.
