I have been using Yoast SEO for ages now and am on the whole very happy with it indeed.
It was recently brought to my attention, however, that none of my sites were appearing in the Google Blogsearch results. Being as the two blogs in question http://j.mp/n3a8Cv (TBW) and http://j.mp/wXgB93 (TF) are pretty popular with the former about to turn six years old.
They do quite well in the formal Google search results (thanks to the Yoast SEO plugin no doubt), but Google Blog Search just seems to resolutely refuse to add either site (and I’ve submitted them a few times over the past couple of years).
I am now thinking that the reason for this might well be that Google Blog Search seems to make use of RSS feeds for content rather than sitemaps, and with Yoast SEO making the RSS noindex – it feels like that may be the culprit.
Can anyone else confirm or disprove this for me?
If you are using Yoast’s SEO plugin – is your site available in Google Blogsearch (eg. using the site: operator)?
