Support » Plugin: Elementor Website Builder » Working with Yoast SEO and Elementor is torture

  • Resolved beitsiach


    I am using Elementor + Astra (free) and Yoast SEO.
    I am trying to work with SEO settings, key phrases, etc., but it is not possible through Elementor, and only show on the WordPress Edit screen. Therefore, when a word needs changing, or the meta description aligned with text, or a link changed – one needs to jump back and forth between the screens. This is a colossal waste of time.
    Is it possible to make a tab for these tweaks in the Elementor page editor and save us this impossible task?
    Also, the SEO doesn’t recognize the first title on the page as page title, and the page title is not editable, so many hide it. This affects SEO scores.
    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    I’m also working with Elementor and Yoast and I’m struggeling with two issues:

    – I get the notification that my keyphrase or its synonyms do not appear in the first paragraph.
    – I get the notification that I’m not using any subheadings, although the text is rather long.

    But I am using the keyphrase in my title and in the first paragraph AND I am using quite a lot of subheadings (H2 and H3). So now the SEO score looks crap, but that isn’t correct.

    How could these issues be fixed?

    I’m looking forward to your reply!



    I am entering the fray.

    I use two other popular page builders and they do not make it difficult to add SEO on a page and Yoast SEO would be awesome.

    One of the page builders was extremely responsive to suggestions and even sent me a FREE T-shirt! I made about three suggestions. Up-front, they told me it would take months to complete them, but guess what! They completed them and I am a nobody to them! 🙂

    I just purchased a theme which uses Elementor, and yes, it is torture – big learning curve. I would like to purchase three more themes which include Elementor, but thinking twice about it after reviewing this thread.

    There is no need to open a ticket. I just posted a request to add SEO and Yoast SEO here. I could easily purchase Pro. Now, let’s see what happens.

    Hi, my name is Carlos and I bought Elementor Pro after searching the internet a lot, I read that the page builder was fully compatible with the SEO apps, and I thought it would be … But I have a tremendous doubt “How can I make my site’s Elementor pages appear in Google searches? ” because I couldn’t make it through Yoast + Elementor. I read in many forums that there are a lot of people with this same problem, we love the Elementor design, and it would be extremely good for both sides if you came up with a solution! Thanks in advance.


    Any news on this? I would like to use elementor to write SEO-optimized content!


    I am a Yoast SEO user for over 10 years. Switching 60+ sites over to RAnkMath SEO. It imports all previous Yoast settings and metatags into its own RankMath settings with a few clicks.

    It shows up in edit with Elementor panel as well.
    I love it!


    @beitsiach is dead on.

    Please see this link:

    It is entirely ON Elementor’s development team to make sure that the content added is exposed to the Yoast analysis. It says so clearly on that page.

    If SiteOrigin and countless other paagebuilders can do this, why can’t Elementor?

    This should be a priority as SEO is ever more important today than it was when this thread was started.

    The two are different, in the same way as changing a tire of a car is different from changing your destination on your car computer’s navigation app. Two different processes, different skills, usually not found on the same task.

    As a compromise, I found this. It might be a good workarond for you. Good luck!
