Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Meta Keywords and Yandex

  • Resolved kantze


    Hello there and thank you for your great plugin!

    I have read that you have removed the ability to add meta keywords because Google doesn’t “see” them. Well, what if someone wants to get customers from Russia and, as I have read, about 50% of Russian search using Yandex?

    Also, I have read that Yandex Search Engine still reads Meta Keywords. Should I put another plugin for that job? Isn’t it a serious reason that your plugin should have this option?

    I’m just wondering & trying to learn. I’m not trying to be a teacher to you, the masters!
