    Hi,
    I am using Yoast successfully in many of my sites. It is a great product.
    In eCommerce sites, it is possible to upload all the product details en masse. Is it possible for me to put in the SEO data on a csv file and upload them en masse for all the product pages?
    Thanks for your help.

    yes but you need to be very careful - I am using woocommerce - and CSV Import Suite which is a premium plug in - how many products do you have?

    as I was "nervous" about the import - I did 3-4 products - then exported, went over what I was actually seeing - then tried an import for a few products to get the hang of it all.

    Hi iRedCord,
    Thanks for the email. I have successfully used the CSV import suite for 100 products and it works ok. It is a good product.
    I raised the matter with their forum and I was told the following:
    You can add the values under the following column headers and it will show up:
    meta:META:_yoast_wpseo_focuskw meta:META:_yoast_wpseo_metadesc meta:META:_yoast_wpseo_title

    I added these and imported them back. They are there in the database. However, they still do not show up in product pages.
    What I am looking for is the correct fieldnames for the seo fields - focus kw, metadescription and title.

    I hope this helps.

    I am not expert enough to say how each theme interacts with products, yoast, and CSV import. I am using Canvas (latest version) and WooCommerce.

    When I do the export I also tick the box include hidden meta data (but this seems to be the meta data for WooCommerce.

    I've not (so far) had the problem of the import values not showing up - but my values have always been changes to fields for existing products - I've not created a product from the CSV import since I activated Yoast. (I did use CSV to create products before I put Yoast live).

    When I export my product file - I've been using excel to be able to easily change values in the Yoast fields then re-import to my site - iRedCord.com

    I have one more value in the Yoast fields than they gave you, but this field is always blank and I don't use it - the focus key word value:

    meta:_yoast_wpseo_focuskw (column AM)
    meta:_yoast_wpseo_title (column AN)
    meta:_yoast_wpseo_metadesc (column AO)
    meta:_yoast_wpseo_metakeywords (column AP)

    If I understand you correctly - you are finding your values in the database but within your theme you are not seeing the values populated? seems like their is an issue between your theme - yoast - csv import. I am sorry but I can't debug what is occurring for you.
