    Hi yashjain27,

    Sorry for the delay.

    Can you please provide me with a screenshot of what you’re seeing in your Yoast info panel when using Page Builder? For reference, here’s a picture of the area I’m specifically after:

    I’m asking because I need to see what Yoast is reporting to get a better idea of what is happening. Also, would it be possible for you to send me an export for the page that the screenshot is taken on? This will allow me to run tests against your layout. To export a page, please click the Layout button in the Page Builder toolbar. Then click import/export and then click download. Please upload the export to a 3rd party file hosting site such as teknik.io.

    I found one example of many how SEO is not optimized with SiteOrigins. I used your page builder and widget called “SiteOrigin Image”. I attached an image to that widget, and Yoast was unable to pickup the image.

    Thanks! I am so excited!! This is my favorite builder as I have done 10 websites with this plugin! It would’ve been a disaster to redo those websites. I hope SiteOrigin can get 100% optimization

    Hi yashjain27,

    Just reaching out to see if you received my last message. We really need to take a closer look at your layout to be able to work out if the above change will actually help, and if it doesn’t, how we can fix the issue you’re facing.

    Hi yashjain27,

    That’s absolutely fine mate – I completely understand, the same has happened for me a few of times. 🙁

    Thanks. Okay so the vast majority of your widgets are theme specific so I think the above fix might help with that – I can’t be 100% sure as I’m not familiar with the inner workings of those widgets. The SiteOrigin Image widget isn’t currently set to output in the content section (which prevents it from being picked up), but that is something we could change – I’ve logged this as a feature request.

    If it’s an absolute must that this image is included in the calculation, I would add the image via a SiteOrigin Editor widget. Please note that just because something doesn’t appear to Yoast, doesn’t mean Google can’t see it – it can, Yoast picks up on things in a completely different manner.

    Hi yashjain27,

    Correction – the SiteOrigin Image widget will be picked up after the fix is released.

    You mentioned theme specific fix “mentioned above”. What are you referring too?

    Hi yashjain27,

    Sorry, my theme specific I meant the widgets for added by your theme rather than there being a theme specific fix. The update we’ll be pushing shortly should allow for those widgets to be picked up.
