Yoast Test Helper


This plugin makes testing Yoast SEO, Yoast SEO add-ons and integrations and resetting the different features a lot easier. It also makes testing database migrations a lot easier as it allows you to set the database version and see if the upgrade process runs smoothly.


This test helper plugin has several features:

  • Toggle between premium and free Yoast SEO versions easily.
  • Easily enable Yoast SEO development mode.
  • Saving and restoring Yoast SEO and Yoast SEO extension options, to test upgrade paths.
  • Add options debug info to Yoast SEO admin pages.
  • Reset the internal link counter, prominent words calculation and other features.
  • Add two post types (Books and Movies) with two taxonomies (Category and Genre) each and optionally disable the block editor for them.
  • Easily add an inline script after a selected script.
  • Replace your .test TLD with example.com in your Schema output, so you can easily copy paste to Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool.
  • Change the number of URLs shown in an XML Sitemap.
  • Easily change your MyYoast URL.

If you find bugs or would like to contribute, see our GitHub repo.

Thank you this is awesome and really helped me sort a few issues out. It would be good to see most of the features as default in the premium/free plugin but still OK, it's there and helps big time thank you.
