Another fantastic feature we’ve added to AIOSEO is the REST API addon.
The REST API addon is for developers and advanced users who love the power of WordPress but want a headless solution.
FYI, a headless WordPress site is a site that’s powered by WordPress but uses a different custom system to display content to your visitors.
The problem with headless sites is there are no dedicated SEO tools to help you with optimization. Therefore, you have to build your site with SEO in mind right from the start.
However, SEO is not something you do once and forget. You always have to be tweaking your website’s SEO for performance.
This is where the REST API comes in.
In short, the REST API helps two web-based systems to interact with each other. In this case, the backend (WordPress) part of your site and the frontend (custom) interface.
We’ve added a REST API addon in the Feature Manager section of the AIOSEO dashboard:
With the AIOSEO REST API addon, you can pull the SEO data from AIOSEO from the backend of your site and implement it on the frontend. This helps make SEO easier for you in a headless environment.

There’s no better time than now to upgrade to a Pro or Elite AIOSEO plan.
