Support » Plugin: Ultimate Blocks - Gutenberg Blocks Plugin » Styled List Not Counting Toward Word Count – Bad for SEO?

    Hello,

    It’s recently come to my attention that when using the styled list block, the words within the list do not get counted in WordPress’ total word count for the post (accessed by clicking on the “i” in the upper left of a post page).

    Does this effect SEO?
    Can Google and other search engines still read the keywords that may be inside the list?

    Thank you!

    Hi @kthoreson,

    That’s due to a limitation of Gutenberg. It counts the words from blocks that are rendered using JavaScript, while our block is rendered using PHP.

    But I can assure you that Google and other search engines will read every word you add with Styled List block or any other blocks that don’t get counted by Gutenberg.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards.

    Very helpful, thank you!
