Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Paginated blog index pages all have same title

  • I’m trying out your plugin with my Headway 3.1 install. My blogs posts index page has enough posts to enable pagination. Prior to trying you plugin, I saw that Webmaster Tools was telling me that all the subsequent pages (page 2, page 3, etc) have duplicate titles with the main, page 1 page. (And I didn’t see any canonical lines in there either, although I do see “meta name=’robots’ content=’noindex,nofollow'”). So that’s when I installed your plugin to see what it did.

    After installing your plugin, I still see the duplicate page titles when I view the page. However, now I see the canonical line in the source and the “prev” line along with it.

    With these two lines added to my subsequent, paged indexed pages, are the duplicate titles I see in all the pages okay with Google now? And if so, will Webmaster Tools then understand and not give me the duplicate title warnings?

    Thanks so much. I think I am going to use Transport to move my Headway data to your SEO plugin and then start using it.

  • To follow up on this…I did go forward and install the plugin. But I am confused about the canonical METAs that are inserted. The following is placed in page 2 of my blog index for my 3D Printer site:

    <!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.1.5 - -->
    <link rel="canonical" href="" />
    <link rel="prev" href="" />
    <link rel="next" href="" />
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/>
    <!-- / Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. -->

    I get the next and prev, but I don’t understand why the rel=canonical is there for page 2, pointing to itself. I read the Google Webmaster page that announced prev/next and it does not show this in their example. (This is the Google announcment that Yoast mentioned in this page of his.)
