  • Currently with post slug modification set as default its actually decreasing your SEO ins ome cases.

    For example, if I have a site about say “New York” WordPress SEO modifies URL’s to “York”, as it deems “New” to be an unwanted stop word, which actually creates a completely different City reference in the URL structure.

    If I write a lot about “New York” I get lost of URL’s now appended with 2, 3, 4 which again is not the original intent of the page and URL.

    The ability to turn this off or on depending on your topic would be very useful.

    I may have to start looking for another SEO plugin or try a mod to get this working (which I want to avoid because of future updates).

    Any advice on whether this is possible would be appreciated.

    Was not aware of this case with the plugin. Thanks for sharing!

    Its a shame because its an awesome plugin and this is just a pain which could be simply fixed (with a check box control) which I obviously don’t want to do because of future updates.

    However I may be forced to do just that (as it cover 95% of what I’m looking for) if no fix/updates comes.

    Glad it was useful.
