Seo Issues

Recommended Posts


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 ! 1f641.png:-(

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 ?

No answer. 

Do I am the only one facing this ? 

Do everybody else all the time use all part of PL plugin ? (I mean filling all Title and subtitle  ? )
Can we think of a line of code who will manage to erase empty <h1>, <h2>,etc  balises ? Or is it not realistic ?

Hi @Andrew, you asked me to publish this question on the forum, it's done; I still have no answer. 
I can't understand how PL don't care about <h1>, <h2> etc ....  It's the basic recommendation for a good SEO . 
I event not speak that we can not add alt balise to image, and that PL Image plugin does not support Lazyload ....
It's just  fundamental <h1>, <h2>, <h3>; etc balise ! 

I can't figure how you and all you team don't consider that important ? Did I miss something ? 

It's a nice thing to make a beautiful website easily, (And I have been a great fan of Pagelines through those past years).... but creating a nice website that google does not like .... it sounds like a little bit useless for me.

      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.

      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
      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

      I'm trying to figure out if it's Pagelines 5 that causes the following problem in the Google search index. When you search for: https://www.google.nl/search?q=site:https://energiek-leren.nl Google Search Index shows a ghost page with the URL: https://energiek-leren.nl/page/2/ 
      I didn't create that page in Wordpress nor is it visible in my Yoast SEO sitemap (https://energiek-leren.nl/page-sitemap.xml)
      When you change the extension 2 of that ghost page URL to 3, 4, 5 or whatever it still loads the front page. Anyone knows what causes this? I'd love to not have these kind of pages show up in index.
      Thank, Jan
