[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Wring canonical link on paginated pages (3 posts)

    Posted 3 years ago #

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.5 / Development version

    I did this:
    - Installed plugin, configured some default settings

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    - When looking at the <link rel="canonical" href="..."> generated bij the plugin, on the paginated pages (eq. http://www.vind-vacature.nl/page/100), the link should be correct.

    Instead it did this:
    - The link says: href="http://www.vind-vacature.nl/100"
    - When it should say: href="http://www.vind-vacature.nl/page/100"

    Results Google Webmaster indexing a lot of errors:
    - 220 indexing errors because of 220 pages.

    Tried this:
    - Disabled all but WordPress SEO plugin
    - Changed theme to Twenty Ten
    Still having the same problem

    Source can be viewed:
    - In google chrome: view-source:http://www.vind-vacature.nl/page/100

    Incorrect lines:
    21: <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.vind-vacature.nl/100" />
    22: <!-- / Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. -->

    Help please! Thankz

    Kind regards, Mark

    Good afternoon!

    The problem is here:

    when the frontpage is a paginated static page, yoast seo plugin treat it as a single page, and writes "/2/" into canonical

    there should be another "if (is_front_page()) {} else {}" around line 565 to use get_pagenum_link or simple add the pagination_base option's value (default: "page")

    All the best wishes to you!
