Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Internal Links not being recognized

  • Resolved jhorn2020


    I have not been able to get Yoast to recognize my internal or my external links. I have tried multiple ways to put links on the page. I am also using the DIVI Theme.

    Any help you can give me would be great

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    @jhorn2020 There are a few cases where a link might not be recognized:

      Only links from inside the WordPress post editor are recognized. This means that links from navigational bars, menus, sidebars or footers are not recognized.
      ​Links need to be in absolute form. This means that links need to include the full domain. For example, is an absolute link, while /page-a/ is a relative link.
      ​The internal linking tool will only recognize links on the page that are input in the standard fashion of including a text based link from within the WordPress editor, and not from links that were created using modules of other plugins in WordPress, such as many page builders for examples.

    ​However, Google and other search engines will still be able to see the links, so if the internal link isn’t being recognized by the analysis, it will still be seen and crawled by search engines.
