Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » outputs wrong og:url

  • Recently discovered that Yoast is adding a trailing slash to the open graph and schema url even though my posts don’t have one. Google sees a url with a trailing slash and without as two separate urls. This is a disruptive linking signal that results in possible link equity dilution and URL cannibalization.

    Reached out to Yoast and they basically said “too bad”, not enough people are complaining about it to fix it. Not sure why it would be so hard to USE THE ACTUAL POST URL as the og:url and in the schema. Seems like this should be a no-brainer to fix. Really disappointed in Yoast.
