The latest issue of Yoast SEO for WordPress is not just a name change from the previously known title “WordPress SEO”. It comes with a new function to connect your Yoast installation with Google’s Search Console API and allows the user to view crawl errors directly in the Yoast plugin.
The function is connected by selecting the connect button and then allowing your GSC to share access to Yoast. You have to logged in to your Google Search Console that has your website loaded in it for the right account to show up. Select the website you want to connect to, and voila!
The reporting is basic, but maybe this will lead to bigger and better things in Yoast in the future. I’m not sure what extra features will be (or already are) available via paid extensions from Yoast, but I think you’ll appreciate the little addition this provides.
You can now see a list of errors (if there are any) for Desktop, Smartphone and Feature Phone. The list shows URL, Last Crawled date, First Detected date and Response Code.
