Changelog Yoast SEO Premium v15.1 (October 14th, 2020)
Adds an integration with SEMrush to search for and compare search volume of related keyphrases.
Moves the Ryte feature toggle to the new Integrations tab where the new SEMrush feature toggle also can be found.
Merges the indexable and link indexing tools on the tools page into one process.
Improves the user experience of the indexing tool on the tools page by showing its progress on the tools page itself, instead of in a separate pop-up modal.
Prevents several processes from happening on non-production environments:
Pinging search engines about XML sitemaps.
Sending tracking information.
Checking the indexability of the site with Ryte.
Uses the website from a user’s WordPress profile in that user’s SameAs array in the Schema output.
Flushes all permalinks from the indexables tables when the value of the permalink_structure option changes, and introduces a notification to ask for a reindex in that case.
Flushes all permalinks from the indexables tables when the value of the home_url option changes, and introduces a notification to ask for a reindex in that case.
Registers a cron job that checks whether the home_url was changed manually and resets the permalinks accordingly.
Makes it possible to recognize keyphrases in Farsi when they have a negation prefix or an indefinite article (for example: ماشین (‘car’) in ماشینی (‘a car’)).
Improves keyphrase recognition in Farsi by filtering the function words such as هفت, چهارم,یا`.
Fixes a bug where the Yoast replacement variables plugin would not be available on edit terms page for usage by other plugins.
Fixes a bug where the incoming link count for each post, as shown on the post overview page, was incorrect.
Adds a filter (wpseo_dynamic_permalinks_enabled) to enable the dynamic permalink fallback. When this fallback is enabled, the indexable-based output of the permalink property is overridden by a permalink that is calculated on the fly. Using this is detrimental for performance but may be needed for some site setups.

Improves all keyphrase-based assessments for Arabic by filtering function words and by allowing keyphrases to be recognized in a text when preceded by a prefix (e.g., “ل” or “ب”).
Adds the following assessments for Indonesian: sentence beginnings, transition words and passive voice.
Adds the following assessments for Portuguese: Flesch reading ease and passive voice.
Cleans up Schema @type values:
If it’s an array with multiple values, only output unique values.
If it’s a single value, output it as a string instead of an array.
Fixes a bug where the Yoast Dashboard widget would trigger an error when other plugins or temporary conditions would make the Yoast API response fail.
Fixes a bug where block editor dependencies would be loaded unnecessarily on classic editor, causing issues with NextGEN gallery. Posts with NextGEN galleries that have been broken due to this bug will need to be re-saved.
Sets the minimum WP version to 5.4.
Optimizes the logic involved in default filters for our options. This should lead to a very small increase in performance as well as avoiding an edge case where the default filter would be removed.

Fixes a bug where a fatal error would occur in sitemaps on sites where the home URL and site URL were different. Because the cause of this was a missing style sheet, the content of the sitemaps was still there, which means Google and other search engines could still reach the sitemaps and no SEO harm was done.
Fixes a bug where reindexing would not be done for indexables without a permalink.
Fixes a bug where an indexable’s permalink remained unchanged when the categories prefix option was changed.
