Vanliga frågor

Hur fungerar XML-webbplatskartor i tillägget Yoast SEO?

Having an XML sitemap can be beneficial for SEO, as Google can retrieve essential pages of a website very fast, even if the internal linking of a site isn’t flawless.
The sitemap index and individual sitemaps are updated automatically as you add or remove content and will include the post types you want search engines to index. Post Types marked as noindex will not appear in the sitemap. Learn more about XML Sitemaps.

Hur implementerar jag synliga sökvägar med Yoast SEO?

The steps below are a temporary solution as manual edits made to theme files may be overwritten with future theme updates. Please contact the theme developer for a permanent solution. We’ve written an article about the importance of breadcrumbs for SEO.

To implement the breadcrumbs function in Yoast SEO, you will have to edit your theme. We recommend that prior to any editing of the theme files, a backup is taken. Your host provider can help you take a backup.
Copy the following code into your theme where you want the breadcrumbs to be. If you are not sure, you will need to experiment with placement:

`

<?php
if ( function_exists( 'yoast_breadcrumb' ) ) {
yoast_breadcrumb( '

’,’

’ );
}
?>
`

Common places where you could place your breadcrumbs are inside your single.php and/or page.php file just above the page’s title. Another option that makes it really easy in some themes is by just pasting the code in header.php at the very end.

In most non-WooTheme themes, this code snippet should not be added to your functions.php file.
Alternatively, you can manually add the breadcrumb shortcode to individual posts or pages: [wpseo_breadcrumb]

If you need more details or a step by step guide, read our Implementation guide for Yoast SEO breadcrumbs.

Hur ställer jag in noindex för URL:er?

Yoast SEO provides multiple options for setting a URL or group of URLs to noindex. Read more about how to do this in this guide.

Google visar fel beskrivning, hur åtgärdar jag detta?

If you’ve crafted nice meta descriptions for your blog posts, nothing is more annoying than Google showing another description for your site completely in the search result snippet.

Possible causes could be:
1. wrong description in code
2. Google cache is outdated
3. Search term manipulation
4. Google ignored the meta description

You can read more here on how to solve the issue with the wrong description.

Hur ofta är Yoast SEO uppdaterad?

Yoast SEO is updated every two weeks. If you want to know why, please read this post on why we release every two weeks!

Recensioner

So here we are, over ten years down the line, and I've had to change my SEO plugin, NOT because of the plugin, but apparently due to the developers of the plugin. The reason? This goddamn awful embedded timestamp that appears on every page, regardless of whether it'll get shown in the SERPS or not. Apparently, this was instigated to 'avoid confusion' (Yoast's words, not mine) in that the previous system (an on-off switch) was far too confusing for their users, so the on-off swich got removed and the timestamp appeared on all pages, posts, products, whatever, which somehow makes it less confusing? Anyone coming to Yoast for the first time will definitely be confused, wondering who on earth added the timestamp in their snippets as they sure didn't. My quote in the GitHub request, saying that 'I'd be back in a heartbeat' has now been rescinded, following a minimum of FOUR new versions since the timestamp was added, and this Yoast blunder will hopefully come back and kick them right in the teeth. Well, I just upgraded, found that nothing had been done, and deleted immediately - mind you, it means far less bloat now that I've finally moved on. Let them get on with it - I can't think of a better advertisment for the other SEO plugins than Yoast doing the advertsing for them by blundering. What a pity...

I changed one wordpress-site in some few things and now SEO Yoast-Plugin says that single site is very bad in SEO and readability.`Yoast SEO give concrete wrong informations about many settings like links, keyword etc. Now I'm also concern if there probably follow up bad ratings in google and other search machines.

Yoast SEO 14.9 comes with a new round of improvements, plus a new language-based enhancement: improved keyphrase recognition for Hebrew. Read more about those changes in our release post!

Bugfixes:

  • Fixes a bug where a JavaScript console warning was thrown on category edit pages.
  • Fixes a bug where the page number was not shown in the breadcrumb for paginated series.
  • Fixes a bug where the robots.txt and .htaccess file editor would not work due to get_home_path() not being a writable path. Props to druesome.
  • Fixes a bug where port numbers in the indexable permalinks were missing (when applicable).
  • Fixes a bug where the indexables table would contain incorrect permalinks for posts if the term slug had been changed and the post permalink contains the term slug.
  • Fixes a bug where the indexables table would contain incorrect permalinks for pages if the slug of the parent page had been changed.
  • Fixes a bug where a warning would occur when a query was unsuccessful while indexing post type archives. Props to Sekiphp.

  • Improves the SQL performance by not performing unnecessary update queries when updating a post’s public status.
  • Optimizes performance by preventing regular database queries.
  • Improves keyphrase recognition in Polish by filtering more function words.
  • Improves the feedback string in the Keyphrase in Subheadings assessment by making it more explicit.
  • Improves all keyphrase-based assessments for Hebrew by filtering function words and allowing keyphrases to be recognized in the text when preceded by a prefix (e.g., “כ” or “ל”).
  • We already had a filter available to change the default Schema Article type (wpseo_schema_article_post_types), but it wasn’t called anywhere. Now it is.

Other:

  • Adds the weekly cron schedule to the cron_schedules filter to prevent overwriting the one WordPress adds. Props to peter-webbird.
  • Merges the googlebot and bingbot meta tag values into the robots meta tag value and deprecates the Googlebot_Presenter and Bingbot_Presenter.
