    Is it better to install it after you have installed google analytics and webmaster tools?

    Or can i install first, then once all my pages are set up with yoast seo plugin, then install google analytics and webmaster tools

    LukeSzmig,

    It doesn't matter when you install the plugin however you may want to set it up before you start posting content. Webmaster tools and analytics really have no bearing on third party plugins installed on a WP site and vis versa.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn

    I've already published all my content before setting that up, so does that mean it not work and I'll have to start over again?

    Not at all mate, no. Just click the 'Check' link near the update button in your post if you make any changes and the plugin will do its job checking once again. Honestly, install it whenever you want. It's a cracking little plugin to be fair.

    No, it just means you might find content needs to be updated. Yoast is good at "grading" web page content and meta data... so it is more convenient and practical to install it before writing the content.

    So what's best for me to do now is install it, and configer it all with my pages? then should i install google analytics and webmaster tools once i have finished the site?
