Recommended Posts

Evening All!

Can i use SEO YEOST on a page that doesn't have any main page content on the page itself except for wording in the sections (masthead, boxes and banners)

i read the following post but i think it's out of date and doesn't seem to work http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/10487-using-yoast-wordpress-seo/page__st__20

Thanks in advance. :)


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

No, yoast or any other 'seo' plugin read the post content or the post excerpt, they will not pick up sections inserted into the page, so even if you have no content/postloop enabled on the page add content anyway so the plugin picks up the keywords. Worth a try.

Hi Simon, thanks for the reply.

Do you mean i need to add content to get it to work? is it a bad idea to not have content and just sections.

Well you said you have a page with no actual content area, so even if its not visible to the end user, adding it to the content area at leat gives the plugin something

sorry i see what you mean. Great idea - i shall give it a try, The reason i didnt do this was i once made a site i couldnt get into google rankings with a few years ago. i had used sliced images as it was from .psd provided by the owner and i got round i by having the image tet in white at the bottom of the page in the footer and google penalised me for it (i believe) - for having font that wasnt visible. that;s what i was led to believe anyway.

i shall try this..

thanks

      Hello,
      We are working on a site and the customers are complaining that the site loads too slowly. They contacted their host who mentioned that the Java Script is all loading at the beginning. Is it possible to delay the load of the less important Java Script until after the initial load to speed up the site? The goal is to load the page faster by minimizing the initial javascript calls.
      Are there any preferred plugins that you would recommend or does this end up causing excessive problems with plugins, etc.?
      Thanks for the help!

      I've been fighting with a resolution issue ? Want to use Flick Slider, the site looks great on my monitor but client says she can't see bottom of homes. I believe she's on an old PC using outdated browser/s ... but, she's important to me and I'd like to make this work, on her system. Without asking her adjust her own set-up. 
      I put the Flick Slider inside a container, here ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-five
      Set the Height of Flick Slider to 50 Base ... I don't know how this works exactly ... there is a Base then a Min ... but, haven't adjusted the Min ::
      http://becauze.xyz/home-four/
      Tried using Splash Up, which presents the same issue (she can only see top of home) and she wants several images to rotate on Home page, so not sure this would work anyway ::
      http://becauze.xyz/
      I have tried going into Layout and making the width narrower, and that does make the site narrower, but the homes still don't display in full, on her system. Help ?

      Here are her screen grabs, both desktop and iPad  (dumped the chalkboard background).

      FInally, she said these look great ::

      What am I doing wrong ?? Is there a better way to accomplish making the site look great on any resolution at any size ?

      I updated my theme to framework and now can't get rid of this bright blue bar that appears across the top of every page. It says, "A fixed bar that makes it easy to promote important content.", and then a button that says, "Get PageLines".
      I am a novice and need help.
      Thank you!
