  • Resolved rensesjoers


    Maybe a silly question.

    I use foo gallery to create gallery pages.
    When creating these pages, it shows all the options from the YOAST plugin, as if you’re creating a post. So much text, key phrases, meta description etc.
    But on these pages adding text is not an option. No text needs to be shown so how do I go from here?
    Hiding text and any other stuff to get everything in the green is not allowed, right?

    Some help on how to use YOAST on gallery pages would be great.

    Thanks in advance!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    We recommend that pages that you want to appear in Google have some text that help Google better contextualize and understand what the page is about. We are not familiar with Foo Gallery but you may want to reach out to them for more information about how a text field might be added.

    Going forward we suggest filling out as much as that Yoast Metabox as possible. That means having a good title and meta description and adding in alt-text. We also recommend making sure those images themselves are well optimized.

    We have some guides below which go into detail about how to do this you may find helpful:

    Thank you for your reply.

    It’s just a gallery shortcode placed on that page, like [foogallery id=”5335″]
    Visitors see the gallery with the (clickable) photos and so on.
    I was just wondering how to get everything in the green on SEO. I’m asked to add text which is not an option. For some reason, the readability is green almost all of the time even though there is no text at all 😉

    Anyway, thank for your time. Apreciated.

    It’s hard to get all good scores for your SEO and Readability for pages that don’t have a lot of content on them, especially for pages such as gallery pages. We recommend that you don’t worry too much, but instead optimize your images and galleries as best as you can for your users and readers. It can be tempting to try and get all green bullets but as long as you’ve optimized it as best as you can (adding alt tags to your images, making sure the title and meta description are informative, and the text that you can place on the page is helpful) then it’s already good —
