Click “Install Now” when you see the plugin in the search results.


Then, it will take you to a separate screen where you will have to click “Activate Plugin.” If you do not click “Activate Plugin” you will not see the Yoast SEO features in your posts or pages.


Now, you can see the plugin listed in your Plugins section on the left panel.


You can also see an “SEO” section on the left panel of your dashboard. This panel will be used for updating your homepage meta description, finding your sitemap, and connecting your Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools.
