  • Resolved scatto


    after the last update yesterday, opening any page or post created previously and with SEO evaluation and readability Ok (green color), after a second that the page is open in the editor the evaluation become orange.
    And further, in the snippet ‘analysis’, there are the same three problems on all pages:
    problem 1)”The focus keyword doesn’t appear in the first paragraph of the copy. Make sure the topic is clear immediately”. False! The focus keyword appears;

    problem 2:)”The text contains 10 words. This is far below the recommended minimum of 300 words. Add more content that is relevant for the topic”. False! The text contains about 300 words;

    problem 3:)”No internal links appear in this page, consider adding some as appropriate. False! One working internal link;

    and improvement 1:) “No outbound links appear in this page, consider adding some as appropriate”. False! Three working outbound links.

    What is going on?
    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

  • I am seeing the same issue on my website ( I had a draft that I built using code directly in the Text editor and when I saved it yesterday it was green and everything was perfect. I made a small change this morning after updating the plugin (I attached a featured image) and now it’s Red and says the text contains 0 words (however, the editor shows a word count of 3,383).

    It also says I have 0 outbound links and 0 inbound links when I clearly have at least 6 or 7 outbound links and multiple inbound links.

    My site has almost 150 posts that have been built/coded the same way and this has never been an issue before.

    Is there an update you can provide to fix this?

    Thank you for your help.

    I am having the same problem as well. Would really appreciate it if someone can help or give some pointers as to what is best in this situation.

    There are a few issues. I’ve disabled and will standby for a fix.

    Some way to downgrade?

    The plugin update you rolled out today seems to have fixed this on my website. Thank you again for your help!
