Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » SEO in between head tags not showing up

  • Resolved danelliott


    ive built a couple of sites using WP and use the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast.

    ive asked a web designer friend of mine to have look at my sites and gove me some feed back…

    he has told me that “there are no keywords. This is a wordpress site and the Yoast SEO plugin is not inserting the keywords in the head section of the site. Load it in a browser, right click and view the source. anything between the <head> and the </head> is not displayed in the browser. This is where your keywords should be
    i asked him what would the issue be and he said “you need to ask their support people. It is a fault with their plugin or a setting you have not done in WordPress

    so here i am
    my sites are SITE 1 and SITE 2

    if anyone can advise me on what i need to do i would be very greatful

    kind regards

  • 1. The meta keywords tags are hardly used by search engines anymore and having one is – from an SEO perspective – redundant.
    2. Having said that, you can turn the meta keywords tag on by checking the appropriate checkbox on the SEO -> Titles and Meta’s page -> General tab.

    No fault in the plugin, nor a bug or issue, IMHO I’d categorize this as yet another user being overwhelmed with the options the plugin offers.

    Please mark this topic as resolved.

    If i turn the meta keywords tag on, what will that do and do i need to do anything else once ive turned that on?

    thank you

    It will add the meta keywords tag if you add a keyword template and/or if you add meta keywords to posts/pages.

    so what ive already put in the yoast plugin will then start showing in between the head tags? sorry but ive never used this before so am a complete noob thanks

    Everything else is already showing. Do a ‘view source’ and you will see. Your friend only commented on the (redundant) meta keywords. That question is answered.

    If you want to learn about SEO, I suggest you read the guide:

    ok, will do thanks for replying
