Support » Fixing WordPress » SEO problems – Suffusion Theme or Yoast SEO Plugin?

  • I’m using the Suffusion theme and Yoast SEO plug-in. I use a sitemap and have got Google set up and yet the site is effectively invisible. I have just carried out a search on “Interview with an alien”, which is the title of one of the blog posts, and it cannot be found at all. So, is the problem with Suffusion, Yoast SEO or the way the theme interacts with the plugin?

    Any comments welcome.

  • I don’t believe the problem is with either. Your site might simply be getting crawled slowly. E.g. If I search for “raincoast fiction”, Google’s cache seems to contain your post dated 21st April as the first one. So from 28th April your site hasn’t been crawled.

    Okay, that’s a good point. I was keeping it simple. What I’m finding is that when I first went live with the site test searches came up within a few pages, and for the first three posts I was, in a day or two, getting Google Alerts. Now the site seems less SEO friendly. I know this is anecdotal, but I just searched for (evolution of storytelling)and have got to page 37 without finding anything. So, I’m not trying to diss either Suffusion or Yoast SEO, the reputations of both sets of software speak for themselves, but I do wonder why, after installing Yoast, SEO responsiveness appears to have declined.

    I fully accept that this might be a coincidence, and these results are simply a part of the imperfections of search technologies. I posted here because I want to see if there is anything I’ve overlooked. If not, then, what is, is and they will probably change as the blog grows traffic.

    In fact I hope that’s the case, as I don’t want to switch from either Suffusion or Yoast.

    Hi. I installed and activated the WordPress SEO plugin today and now cannot access my dashboard siting this fatal error

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /home/content/51/7737051/html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/class-admin.php on line 517


    Thank you.

    It does say “plugins/wordpress-seo” in your error description, not “themes/suffusion”. That being said, the issue is that you are on an older version of WP, while WP SEO is expecting the latest. If your hosting provider allows you to upgrade WP from its dashboard, you can use that provision and be up and running.
