    @immanuelconrad We’re sorry to hear you are experiencing this error after a recent update. Can you confirm you are using WordPress 5.5.1? You can check by clicking on the W in the top left and selecting About. If you need to update, please check with your host provider. Please know that if you are using an older version of WordPress Core you may experience unexpected behavior with Yoast. This guide explains more:

    If you have already confirmed that both Yoast SEO and WordPress are up to date and the error is still occurring, we would next recommend performing a conflict check to determine whether another plugin or theme is interfering with the Yoast plugin.

    The fastest way to do this is to deactivate all non-Yoast plugins and switch to a standard theme like Twenty Nineteen. Test this on your development or staging site, if you have one. If not, we recommend using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin. This plugin allows you to run a conflict check without affecting normal visitors to your site.

    If you’re unfamiliar with checking for conflicts, we’d like to point you to a step-by-step guide that will walk you through the process: How to check for plugin conflicts.

    I think yoast plugin is the cause of the error. i deactivated all the plugins expect yoast plugin but the error was there and even switching the theme to default. But when i deactivate yoast plugin i was able to create/edit a post or a page without any error.

    WordPress version 5.5.1
    Current theme: OceanWP (version 1.9.0)
    Current plugin: Yoast SEO (version 15.1)
    PHP version 7.2.19

    Hi @immanuelconrad,

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Unfortunately, we’re unable to reproduce the issue on our setup. In fact, we recommend the PHP version 7.3 or above. To confirm further, can you please contact your webhost and upgrade it? Before you upgrade to a higher PHP version, check if your WordPress site is ready for it. Read this help article to learn how to update your PHP version.

    In addition, please ensure whether cURL is enabled.

    And again am getting this error
    Oops, something has gone wrong and we couldn’t complete the optimization of your SEO data. Please click the button again to re-start the process.

    Can you please try the following:

    1. Install & activate the Yoast Test Helper plugin
    2. Go to Tools -> Yoast Test
    3. Hit the “Reset indexables & migrations” button
    4. Delete the Yoast SEO plugin from your site. This won’t delete SEO data and settings.
    5. Re-install the plugin.
    6. Click the “Click here to speed up your site now” button.

    Can you please let us know if this solves the issue?

    @jeevanshetty ​In regards to your inquiry about how to revert back to a previous version of the Yoast SEO plugin, please note that previous versions of the plugin may not be secure or stable and are available for testing purposes only. However, if you wish to download a previous version of the plugin and revert to it, ​you can do so by performing the following steps:

      • ​Visit
      • Click on the ‘Advanced View’ option (this is beneath the plugin version information near the bottom)
      • ​Under ‘Previous Version’ select the version
      • ​Click the ‘Download’ button.

    After downloading the version of the plugin you wish to revert to, it can then be installed by performing a manual install/update of the plugin. We have instructions on how to install/upgrade the plugin manually at the following link: You will need an FTP program such as FileZilla and your FTP details, which can be obtained from your host provider.
