Can I use Yoast without WordPress?


No, Yoast is specifically designed as a plugin for WordPress. It cannot be used on platforms other than WordPress because it is tightly integrated with WordPress’s core structure and functionality.

However, if you’re not using WordPress but are interested in SEO tools similar to Yoast, there are other platforms and content management systems (CMS) that have their own set of SEO plugins or tools available. It’s a good idea to explore the recommended or popular SEO tools for whichever platform you are using.

If SEO is a significant concern for your website and you’re considering changing your CMS, WordPress with Yoast is one of the most popular and user-friendly combinations available. However, always evaluate based on your specific needs, the size of your website, and other technical and content considerations.
