WordPress SEO version: 18.104.22.168
Theme: Genesis version: 1.8.2
I did this:
On Dashboard went to SEO:Titles&Metas:General
--checked Use meta keywords tag?
On Dashboard went to SEO:Titles&Metas:Home
--added %%focuskw%% to “meta keywords template:”
Added keywords to WordPress SEO by Yoast:
… Next to “Focus Keywords” added one keyword phrase
… Next to “Meta Keywords” added all keywords wanted on this home page
I expected the plugin to do this:
Show keywords in source code.
Instead it did this: on source page…
<meta name="keywords" content="partnership, partner, success"/>
These keywords are NOT my focus keyword, and only a small part of the meta keywords.
UNDERSTAND THE DESIGNER (not me) created the HOME PAGE with widgets in the WP widget area and 3 “feature pages” in the widget area (seen on the lower part of the home page). So, in the WP editor under “Home” there is nothing, it’s blank; not happy that Yoast doesn’t work well here because of the custom home page.
