Plugins Updates – Yoast Seo

Catching Up With Recent WordPress Plugin Updates

With all the work from the recent switch-over from SDU, I need to do a little catch up from this month. So here are several of the more recent updates on some of the plugins we follow. Not all of these will be strictly security updates however we will make sure to highlight any and all security updates that we can.


Likely the most installed WordPress SEO plgin to date, the Yoast team continues to make sure they are the team to beat when it comes to updates. One of the most routinely updated plugins we use ourselves. They made a decently sized release of Yoast SEO version 3.4 (Plugin Updates – Yoast SEO version 3.4 Adds Considerable Language Support) on July 19, 2016 which included many language updates as well as a host of other features. This month just a few minor updates and bug fixes.
