  • Resolved Beee


    I just installed the plugin to one of my websites when I found it looked different than I knew it….

    It seems I have a 2.0 installed but I didn’t see any notice of an updated version on any of the other sites I have in installed.

    Since 2.0 gave a lot of prob (see link below), i deleted 2.0 and put 1.3 back up… then I did get a notice to upgrade, but still not on any other sites…

    so i’m a bit puzzled… why does one site gets an update notice and not the other ones…

    Hey Beee,

    well some of the old versions don’t give update notices AND update notices are cached for 24 hours, so it might happen that you don’t get an update notice. More worried about your other thread, so jumping to that now 🙂


    I did not know that, that might explain it….

    It does, actually 😉


    I’m used to the All in one SEO plugin for WP on all my sites. I installed your SEO plugin and am trying to get used to it. There are a lot of features and am a little confused on what to set all the settings at. The All in one SEO plugin seemed ready to go out of the box and I would just enter the title – description – and keywords in the main settings page. My questions are:

    1) Where is the area to insert my “homepage keywords” in your Yoast SEO plugin? (I see where I can do it when constructing a post).

    2) I can see in the area when I’m writing a post where I can put in the title/description and “FOCUS KEYWORD” (singular). This confuses me because I thought one was supposed to enter 4 – 5 keywords and you have just one. Is this because you can enter them in the “POST TAGS” box? In the All in One SEO plugin the “Use Tags for META keywords” box can be checked so I assumed my keywords in a post were my TAGS. My understanding was the All in One SEO plugin would use my entered TAGS as the keywords for the particular post.

    If you clarify this I have to believe that many others will start using this plugin because I love the way it tells you if your properly SEOing every post you create in the “add post” area and I would like to start using it on my future websites. In fact I would love to see you write a short article on Setting up the YOAST SEO WP Plugin for Beginners. In the article just explain the least you have to do to get the plugin set for the search engines and no more – because the rest we will learn along the way once it’s set up properly and we use it daily. Right now I just want piece of mind knowing that this plugin is set up properly where it works right out of the box with minor input on my part. I know you have detailed explanations on everything (YOAST SEO PLUGIN) but a lot of this I just don’t understand right now – but I will once I start using it. Just tell me the least I should do to get it running in the right direction….ABC – done!

    Thanks for taking the time to clarify.


    Hey Miom,

    Don’t know whether this will address all your questions. I’m pretty new at blogging and am still working through everything here:

    How to Install and Setup WordPress SEO Plugin by Yoast

    Good luck and I hope this helps a bit.
