    Howdy Yoast,

    thank you for the new Link Counter feature. I guess this is really useful. But it stopped working after hitting the Count Links Button on the wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_dashboard.

    Steps

    1
    Logged in today to test the new feature.
    2
    Checked the Post Page and found the “Link Counter” column. No links counted.
    3
    Edit of one post, save and voilá 16 links counted for this post.
    4
    Great! But no way to do this manually. So I switched to wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_dashboard
    5
    Hit the Count Links button.
    6
    Watched the progress bar full of anticipation for the new feature.
    7
    Disappointed I hat to notice the result: The Text link counter feature (introduced in Yoast SEO 5.0) is currently disabled. For this feature to work Yoast SEO needs to create a table in your database. We were unable to create this table automatically.

    Ups – but it worked already on one post!
    9
    Check for the tables, cloumns and indices: all set.

    10
    No js errors in the console.

    What to do?

    Hello zielniok,
    If the relevant tables are already created in your database and you’re still seeing the error in our plugin related to the new Text Link Counter feature, you’ll need to wait for a while (i.e. one hour) and the error will disappear automatically.
