Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Meta Keywords and Yandex

    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!

    Hi,

    Yoast does not have meta keywords as Google and Bing do not use them. This guide explains more: https://kb.yoast.com/kb/meta-keywords-yoast-seo/.

    However, we thank you for suggesting a new feature for one of our plugins. We’re not working on it at the moment but we’ll create a feature request for this, so our developers can consider this when planning updates.

    You can follow it here: https://github.com/Yoast/wordpress-seo/issues/12364

    We suggest commenting on the issue so you may be kept aware of updates. You may need an account in order to comment.
