yoast SEO and it’s going to give you this first time configuration which I highly recommend doing so I’m just going to click on the configuration wizard button and then this whole process is going to ask you a bunch of questions to get you set up with the best settings so it’s just going to ask you if your site is live or if it’s still under construction hasn’t been posted yet in this case her site is already alive so I’m going to click on option and then click next and then he’s going to ask you what the website is all about going to give you a bunch of options but this one is a Blog someone on a Blog and then click on next okay

then it’s going to ask you if you are an organization or an individual person and if you are an organization you can type in your name here so I’ll just say the nurse rental and then you can choose your company logo I selected choose an image and then I’m just going to go to upload files select files and then I’ma select the

Nordstrom logo that I had here on my desktop and then open and then select choose an image there we go and then you can put in all of your social media URLs if you have those so then I’m just going to click on that next and then I’ll ask you what you actually want to display and search engines whenever you come up in search results so in this case yes I want my post to display and then I also want my pages to display and I’m just going to uncheck the my templates

I’m just going to say no for that as well as the my library I don’t really have anything valuable for people in either one of those categories so I’m just going to lunch and then I’ll just click on next and that’s going to ask if you have multiple authors for this website and I have no selected cuz I just have the one author but it’s okay to put yes but just keep in mind that when you have multiple people adding content to your website you could confuse Google

if you end up with duplicate content so they’re just giving you a little warning about that but to make things easy I’m just going to select no and then click next okay and it’s going to ask you to put in your website name in mines already in there to help nurse journal and then it’s going to ask you to select a title separator and I’ll show you what this is so if I just go up to Google
