If You're Using Yoast SEO, Please Check The Following

Last Update: May 30, 2018

I just got a notification from Yoast that a certain setting within the plugin may be effecting SEO and potentially could effect rankings and indexing within Google.

This is due to a bug on their end from an update that occured in March of this year, which has recently been patched with a new update for the plugin - an update which I did moments ago, which then triggered the notification.


You will need to go into your Yoast settings (Search Apperance > Media) to check that they are correct. You can find full details here: https://yoast.com/media-attachment-urls/

I went from feeling a bit upset to realizing that these things happen. It's a quick fix but make sure to have a look at the post from Yoast SEO if you are using the plugin to make sure your websites are not being effected.

Thank you, Jason, for the heads up. I do not have Yoast yet. I shall keep this in mind when I add Yoast.
