SEO: Content in Pagelines sections vs. content written in WordPress

Recommended Posts

mnagillum

Hi, is it true that content written in PageLines sections (textbox, PLnextbox, mediabox) doesn't show up in search engines? I am getting that impression. If that's the case, isn't this a significant flaw in PageLines?

If true, can I place the same text in the box provided for writing on the WordPress dashboard in an effort to improve SEO? Can I actually place better, more SEO-friendly text in the WordPress box, since that text doesn't appear on my site but search engines would be looking for it? Is there any reason not to try this?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Google looks at your site as its seen in a browser, it even reads javascript and css.

May I ask how are you getting the impression that it does not?

Kind of exploring Yoast SEO and seeing that it wants me to change the text as entered in WordPress. Can I add more SEO-friendly stuff in there, or will it not be seen? My client prefers a lot of technical jargon that is not doing well, SEO-wise. :-(

Hi there, 

I am just doing some research into SEO and used Yoast, I used to use an older version of SEOpressor but the new SEOPressor Connect http://seopressor.com seems to read the page as Google does, so you might want to check it out. 

Hope this helps

Paul

      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!

      Hi guys,
      It seems like the H1 tag in the Pagelines 5 framework is missing the entry-title tag. Google Search Console complains about that and it seems like it needs to be fixed in the theme. Based on another thread, this looks like a known issue but I haven't seen any updates from the framework team.
      Any indication of what the status on this issue is?
      The site in question that I have that issue with is michaelkummer.com.
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello. I just past my PL5 website to BING analyser, and I was very surprise when it told me I had five <H1> ! ? What ? how it's possible ?? 
      So I have checked the code, and obviously, some PL plugin (like Elements), create some <h1> balises for their Header.... Great ! 
      So I have try to simply not use this Element's Header, leting them blanck. But <H1> balise is still there ! Empty but sill there ! ( <h1 class="elements-header" data-bind="plshortcode: header"></h1>).
      I have took Element as exemple, but it's the same for other PL plugins. Even if you let a part blank, PL plugin will create an empty balise ! :-(
      I'm not developper, and don't know PHP. But I guess it's possible to create a fonction, witch would say . 
      "if one balise is empty => then don't write it."
      What guy's do you think about that ?

      Hi,
      We're using Yoast SEO plugin and it can not crawl the content that is in a Pagelines text container, only the Paglines framework content. 
      I can see that it is a problem with SEO plugins and external site builders to read the content. So is there a Pagelines SEO plugin that would solve that? 
      I know that it does not effect stats on google, but it is not possible to see the full picture of SEO status.

      Hi there,
      I have a dev site I am working on and my seo plugin is not being able to see the image alt tags
      to test this I have an image on the top section in an image section here http://213.5.177.31/~northsho/keys2drive/
      but in the source code the image tag is not registering? I have also added the image via the media library, added the alt and it doesn't work that way either
      At the moment I am just trying with the image section but hope that the binding alt tags for any of the images in sections would work, I have not tried yet, but want to see why the main image isn't first
      Thanks In advance  
       
      Paul
