  • Resolved Martin



    since last updates of your plugin Yoast SEO all my sites sowing the same shit:

    Keyphrase in introduction: Your keyphrase or its synonyms do not appear in the first paragraph. Make sure the topic is clear immediately.

    Keyphrase in subheading: Use more keyphrases or synonyms in your higher-level subheadings!

    Can you solve this problem please as all my keyphrases are in the first paragraph. I’m also using enough subheadlines….

  • I use Yoast SEO on all my sites. For the last few months, Yoast SEO says in the Focus Keyphrase analysis:

    “Keyphrase in subheading: Use more keyphrases or synonyms in your higher-level subheadings!”

    it says this even when I have the perfect amount of a keyphrase in the higher-level subheadings and even when I have too much of a keyphrase in the higher-level subheadings.

    This has been happening a few months ago, appeared to be fixed and now is happening again with this latest update to Yoast SEO Version 11.3.

    Please look into this and fix this as it is indeed a real issue as it happens on every site.

    1. Keyword in Intro
    Yoast is looking at the first paragraph position, seeing it contains a shortcode instead of an actual paragraph, and tosses out errors. See image:

    We suggest ignoring the warnings that Yoast is throwing out for this error. As long as you know you have added it, so will Google as Google will be able to scan the source code of your page and use what it finds for ranking.

    2.Keyphrase in Title
    We see your keyphrase is in one title, an h1 title tag. However, we see you have other title tags like an h2 and an h3 where the keyphrase is not showing. See image:

    Can you verify you have added the keyphrase in other title tags? If you do, does the issue resolve?
