Does text within section contribute towards SEO?


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi Guys,

 

I was just wondering whether search engines scanned the text within sections such as Text box, Hero section, Masthead etc.

 

The reason I ask is that I have the SEO plugin by Yoast however it only identifies text within the post content loop section and provides feedback on SEO with that content only and does not recognise anything else on the page. I was wondering whether this is simply a limited feature of the plugin itself or whether I need to configure the plugin to search section content as well for more accurate feedback?

 

Could someone please provide feed back as to whether the content within our sections is SEO compatible please?

 

Cheers

 

Warren

Your right, yoast plugin analyses the post content.

 

Google and all other bots see your page text only and your sections are text, so it will see them.

 

There are various tools for viewing your page as google.
