Yoast Local SEO 11.8


  • The settings page has gotten an overhaul.
  • Settings are now categorized under tabs to make it easier to find them.
  • The UI has been updated to correspond to the Yoast SEO look and feel.
  • Settings only appear when they are available. For instance: Settings under 'advanced settings' only show up when multiple locations are used.


  • Some fields in the Yoast SEO: Local settings were not sanitized properly which could lead to an XSS vulnerability. This was only the case when logged in as Administrator or SEO Manager.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the content analysis not to recognize an address block or short code.
  • Add default values for settings that caused possible notices.


  • Cleaned up translatable strings by removing unnecessary capitalization.
  • Added some missing words in strings on the settings pages.
