WordPress SEO by Yoast
SEO not picking product images (9 posts)

    Hi all,
    I'm using getShopped plugin in the website and the SEO is not picking the image information in each product page.
    I upload an image and in the page analysis tab it gives the error:
    “No images appear in this page, consider adding some as appropriate.”
    So, I don’t understand if it’s an incompatibility between the two plugins or just something I need to learn how to do.
    Sorry, if this has been touched before, but couldn't find a solution anywhere.
    Thanks for the help!
    Regards,
    Andre

    Hello

    if getShopped handles images itself, then SEO plugin may not detect them. From what I have seen this SEO plugin detects images in the post content. It possibly detects featured image also, would be surprised if it didn't.

    What your asking for may require some quick work to integrate getShopped.

    I hope I'm correct and it helps ;)

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for your help!

    Yes, you're bang on it.
    What do you mean by quick work?
    I'm new to wordpress. What do you suggest?

    Cheers! :)

    No problem

    SEO by Yoast needs to check images for getShopped. I'm not sure if they integrate the plugin on that level as there is a lot of image plugins out there but it shouldn't be a lot of work either.

    Worth asking them. Try creating a new thread "Integrate getShopped"

    I considered a workaround. Putting the HTML image code into the content as a HTML comment. I'm guessing yoast just does a search for an image URL and keeps it simple. I may be wrong as it may also skip comments but I can't think of a reason why it should.

    You would be basically tricking the SEO plugin and let us know if it works.

    Oh and being new to WordPress does that make you new to HTML also?

    A comment is something in the code but visitors on a web page cannot see it. Example should this be new to you...

    <!-- <img src="http://www.csv2post.com/images/halfpricesale.jpg" alt="May half price sale now on for WordPress 3.6 release"> -->

    The <!-- is the part that makes the img become a simple comment readable only being viewing source code. Now I considered the yoast plugin checking image size. As maybe it is designed to ignore decoration.

    Please see this page for further attributes and possibly improve it by adding image width/height.

    Hi Ryan!

    Thanks a lot for the info.

    No, I'm not new to HTML and I've tried before and it does work.
    The person which is responsible for uploading the content doesn't have any HTML or PHP knowledge, so this is why I needed to make it easy to use, without the need to write any code.
    But I will explain how it works, just in case.
    We actually found out that, even though the plugin is not picking up the featured images, the search engines are.
    Which in my opinion is the important bit (and the objective).
    It's not a serious problem, it just would help having a more efficient feedback.

    If I have any progressions with it, I'll let you know.

    Thanks, once again!

    Regards,

    Andre

    Ah I didn't consider general attachments for the post. Maybe your plugin is not populating data for the attachment that the SEO plugin needs. It's the attachment method that would be picked up by search engines.

    Unless the theme is using images from custom fields.

    Good luck with this. Integration is a constant job for plugin authors and it sounds like one of the others from the two plugins need to give this a high priority attention in my opinion. It is a key element in SEO!

    Cheers Ryan!

    It seems I have a lot to learn, and I'll keep in mind what you taught me.

    I am having the same problem with table press and seo by yoast. Seo is not picking up on the data, including pictures, stored in the table. What do I do? It only sees the page and what is written on it. Only a short code represents the table on the page in the edit page section.
