Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Return ‘keywords’ field

  • Resolved rinart73


    I guess you have no idea how SEO works. Meta keywords work for Google. And there are search engines like Yandex, who STATED that they scan content of meta keywords to determine link position.

    I just really hope that you didn’t delete them or our months of work will be gone.

    Thanks for you lack of backwards-compatibility and terrible notification system.

    The best thing that you can do now is to give me 6.2.0 download link.
