The Yoast SEO asks me for Focus keyword. If we enter that keyword will it help crawl bots or us to know thw keyword density?

Yoast SEO plugin is just a checklist plugin bro, they don’t actually control our rankings or anything, but they are pretty good. If you want to rank for, say “Grammarly Review (Focus Keyword),” this plugin will help you by showing all the possible strong areas where you can keep your keyword and optimize it.

Yoast SEO Premium WordPress plugin will allow you to have more than one focus keyword, like, if I want to target both ‘Grammarly Review’ and ‘Grammarly Tricks,’ then I can add another keyword and optimize the article for that as well. :slight_smile:
