How to Give Your SEO Agency Access to Your WordPress Site

My SEO team needs access to my WordPress site.

My first instinct was to do it the old way: Install “Members” plugin & create a new “SEO Agency” role.

But today when I went to do that, I noticed that Yoast SEO now adds 2 WordPress user roles for SEO agencies!

So I added my agency to Yoast’s “SEO Manager” role, and waaalah! Done!

If you need to limit access or give more access to the SEO team, you can still do that by adding/limiting capabilities to the Yoast roles with the Members plugin (or just create a new role using Members plugin).
