How do the XML Sitemaps in the Yoast SEO plugin work?

Having an XML sitemap can be beneficial for SEO, as Google can retrieve essential pages of a website very fast, even if the internal linking of a site isn’t flawless.
The sitemap index and individual sitemaps are updated automatically as you add or remove content and will include the post types you want search engines to index. Post Types marked as noindex will not appear in the sitemap. Learn more about XML Sitemaps.

How do I implement Yoast SEO breadcrumbs?

The steps below are a temporary solution as manual edits made to theme files may be overwritten with future theme updates. Please contact the theme developer for a permanent solution. We’ve written an article about the importance of breadcrumbs for SEO.

To implement the breadcrumbs function in Yoast SEO, you will have to edit your theme. We recommend that prior to any editing of the theme files, a backup is taken. Your host provider can help you take a backup.
Copy the following code into your theme where you want the breadcrumbs to be. If you are not sure, you will need to experiment with placement:

`

<?php
if ( function_exists( 'yoast_breadcrumb' ) ) {
yoast_breadcrumb( '

‚,‘

‚ );
}
?>
`

Common places where you could place your breadcrumbs are inside your single.php and/or page.php file just above the page’s title. Another option that makes it really easy in some themes is by just pasting the code in header.php at the very end.

In most non-WooTheme themes, this code snippet should not be added to your functions.php file.
Alternatively, you can manually add the breadcrumb shortcode to individual posts or pages: [wpseo_breadcrumb]

If you need more details or a step by step guide, read our Implementation guide for Yoast SEO breadcrumbs.

How do I noindex URLS?

Yoast SEO provides multiple options for setting a URL or group of URLs to noindex. Read more about how to do this in this guide.

Google shows the wrong description, how do I fix this?

If you’ve crafted nice meta descriptions for your blog posts, nothing is more annoying than Google showing another description for your site completely in the search result snippet.

Possible causes could be:
1. wrong description in code
2. Google cache is outdated
3. Search term manipulation
4. Google ignored the meta description

You can read more here on how to solve the issue with the wrong description.

How often is Yoast SEO updated?

Yoast SEO is updated every two weeks. If you want to know why, please read this post on why we release every two weeks!

How do I get support?

As our free plugin is used by millions of people worldwide, we cannot offer you all one on one support. If you have trouble with the Yoast SEO for WordPress plugin, you can get help on the support forums here at wordpress.org or by checking out or knowledge base at kb.yoast.com.

14.2

Release Date: May 26th, 2020

In today’s release, we’ve fixed several issues with breadcrumbs. One of these bugs turned the order of breadcrumbs on its head, which is not something we like. Things should work as expected now. We’ve also changed how we check if a focus keyphrase was used before. We currently run this against our indexable table, making the process more efficient. Read more about those changes in our release post!

Bugfixes:

  • Fixes a bug where breadcrumbs would be saved in reversed order.
  • Fixes a bug where setting Security: no advanced settings for authors to off would remove the advanced settings tab for all users.
  • Fixes a bug where replacement variables would not be replaced when using the deprecated WPSEO_Frontend output without echoing it.
  • Fixes a bug where our select2 styling would overwrite the select2 styling of other plugins.
  • Fixes a bug where JavaScript could be executed via the error message on the Social section in the Yoast Settings. As this potentially dangerous data is not saved, abusing this was not possible.

Enhancements:

  • Optimizes the query used to check if a focus keyphrase has been previously used, by running it against our indexable table.

14.1

Release Date: May 13th, 2020

Despite weeks and weeks of testing Yoast SEO 14.0, there were still some people running into issues. In Yoast SEO 14.1, we’re improving things to help stabilize the plugin. Read more about those changes in our release post!

Bugfixes:

  • Fixes a bug where the help text about Yoast Columns would be shown in the Help Tab on post overviews when there were no Yoast Columns. Additionally, the help text has been refined to only show information about columns that are actually shown. Props to glebkema.
  • Fixes a bug where an empty breadcrumb would be output when a taxonomy was set to have a post type archive in its breadcrumb when that post type didn’t have an archive.
  • Fixes a bug where a part of the breadcrumb path was missing on search result pages.
  • Fixes a bug where an error would be thrown and indexing could not be completed due to posts or terms having themselves as a parent or grandparent.
  • Fixes a bug where the SEO data was unnecessarily being indexed when a non-public term or taxonomy was being saved.
  • Fixes a bug where the SEO data of an object would be indexed twice during the indexing process when it was an ancestor of another object in the same REST request.
  • Fixes a bug where huge log files would be generated if PHP was configured to also log the arguments in debug backtraces.
  • Fixes a bug where indexing would continue even though it had already indexed all objects.
  • Fixes a bug where term indexing would keep going on forever due to plugin conflicts.
  • Fixes a bug where primary terms of a custom taxonomy where not being reflected in the breadcrumb.
  • Fixes a bug where the URL in the schema breadcrumbs of search pages would be missing.
  • Fixes a bug where the wpseo_remove_reply_to_com filter was not working.
  • Fixes a bug where no metadata would be output on the frontend when the tables necessary for the indexables could not be created
  • Fixes a bug where the indexing notification would be shown on the WordPress updates page when updating themes or plugins.
  • Fixes a bug where the yoast index --network WP CLI command would throw an error when the database migrations for one or more subsites on a multisite environment had not been run yet.
  • Fixes a bug where no or incorrect breadcrumbs where shown for 404 pages, author archives and date archives. Props to amitsidhpura.

Enhancements:

  • Moves the text link counter notification from the SEO Dashboard to the WordPress‘ Site Health.
  • Makes the „You’re blocking access to robots“ notification site-wide.
  • Improves the copy for the „cannot fetch“ response of the Ryte health check.
  • Removes the notification containing the message that you should check your post type archive settings when these are possibly reset to their defaults in Yoast SEO 7.7 or 7.8.
  • Reimplements the Advanced Settings tab in React.
  • Improves the ordering of items in XML sitemaps to match SQL standards. Props to rafaelbernard.
  • Improves the transition word assessment for Hungarian. Props to @Zsoru.
  • Adds the --reindex flag to the indexables WP CLI command to remove all existing indexables and then reindex all content.
  • Adds the wpseo_robots_array filter to enable the filtering of the robots array used for the robots meta tag output.
  • Adds the wpseo_shutdown_indexation_limit filter to enable the filtering of the number of objects that can remain unindexed. These remaining objects will automatically be indexed without needing any user interaction as a shutdown function.
  • Adds debug information to the error that is shown when Yoast SEO was unable to create the necessary database tables.
  • Optimizes finding attachments by URL. This addresses a primary cause of higher server load issues occurring since 14.0.
  • Adds a warning to the metabox that is shown when a user enters a focus keyphrase that contains more than 191 characters.
  • Makes the copy of the indexing setting in the advanced tab consistent between all contexts (post, page, category, etc.).
  • Adds the term_id for terms in the object that can be filtered with the wpseo_breadcrumb_links and wpseo_breadcrumb_single_link_info filters. Props to amitsidhpura.
  • Adds a time estimation to the indexing notification based on the amount of objects that need to be indexed.
  • Adds a button to the indexing notification to hide it for a week when more than 2500 objects need to be indexed.
  • Improves the notification that is shown when there were problems creating the necessary database tables.

Other

  • Deletes the unnecessarily created indexables of private taxonomies.
