The following are pasted clips from an outside source advising how my blog settings for the Yoast SEO plugin.
Go to "SEO >> Indexation" and configure the following options:
* In section "Indexation Rules", check the following options:
"This site's search result pages"
"The login and register pages"
In section "Clean up section", check the following options:
"Hide WordPress Generator"
"Hide Index Relation Links"
"Hide Previous & Next Post Links"
Go to "SEO >> RSS" and configure the following options:
In section "RSS Feeds", check the following options:
"noindex the comment RSS feeds"
"Ping the Search Engines with feed on new post"
The referenced options in quotes do not exist for the downloaded SEO plugin(ver 1.1). I presume the correct settings already exist for these areas, and options are no longer needed
Go to "SEO >> Edit files". Once you have your robots.txt file set up, you can access it and the .htaccess files from here to make any updates or adjustments. It is recommended to back up your blog's files before making any changes.
In the edit files section I only see the .htaccess file. The robots.txt file is not visible.
Any feedback and/or help is appreciated.
