SEO analysis: The SEO analysis offers suggestions to improve the SEO of your text.
Readability analysis: The readability analysis offers suggestions to improve the structure and style of your text. You will want to keep this on. It helps a lot when trying to improve the quality of your content.
Cornerstone content: The cornerstone content feature lets you to mark and filter cornerstone content on your website. If you want to be able to mark and filter cornerstone content (more about that in a later section), you will need to keep this option enabled
Text link counter: Yoast SEO needs to count all the public links on your website to offer better suggestions for keyword anchor texts.
XML Sitemaps: Enable the XML sitemaps that Yoast SEO generates (more about XML sitemaps below).
Ryte integration: Ryte will check weekly if your site is still indexable by search engines and Yoast SEO will notify you when this is not the case.
Admin bar menu: Adds a menu to the admin bar with useful shortcuts to Yoast SEO settings and keyword research tools.
Security: no advanced settings for authors: The advanced section of the Yoast SEO meta box allows a user to remove posts from the search results or change the canonical. These are things you might not want any author to do. That’s why, by default, only editors and administrators can do this. Setting to “Off” allows all users to change these settings.
Clicking the question mark gives more information about the feature. If you are a beginner to SEO then I recommend you to keep all of these options enabled.

• Read speed
• Eye movements
• Good peripheral vision
