So I thought I had resolved my issues by going into the archive in AIOSEO and changing the settings, then submitting URL for indexing.

However, I still have 91 pages that

Check those pages on Google search console if they are free of errors. You may not border.

What pages are these errors found on? Are they actually content pages that *should* be indexed?

Just having a closer look and a lot of them look like this

or this

Best,

That looks fine, it's just excluding content you don't want indexed - nothing to worry about :)

It says I have 32 pages indexed but I have 60 blog posts so something is not right.

You can use the URL inspection tool if you think there's an issue with specific posts: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9012289#test_live_page

Thanks will check it out.

So, I have 3 very brief comments (3-5 words) on my welcome page. They are positive and I am sure well-meaning (not from anyone in W.A.).

But I am wondering if I should

As long as they stay positive, I don' see why you would want to remove them. I would leave them. Just make sure they don't have hidden spam links in them. All the best!

Hi, Jean

If the comment is positive and appropriate, I would consider accepting and answering it, if possible.

I recently got a two-word comment on an article about a guitar amplifier I reviewed that said "replacement speaker?" I knew that the commenter was looking to swap out the speaker for a better-sounding one.

I told him where to find the answer in my article (which he obviously did not read carefully) and added additional helpful information to both the post and comment.

Readers looking for one particular solution sometimes leave very short comments so they can carry on with their research. Many of them return to read my answer and thank me with a follow-up comment.

Another person added his comment about a different article to my about me page, which was appropriate and very positive, so I left it and answered it.

Sometimes short comments are simply an inappropriate attempt to get backlinks. I would mark those as spam.

Great analogy Frank!

Hey Jean,

When I first started my personal blog in WordPress, I had not noticed that comments were on pages, and so I had several compliments made from friends.

I kept those comments but chose to hide all comments on pages and only allow comments on posts.

As Abie has already stated, the decision is yours to make. Just thought I'd toss in my 2¢ worth in hope of helping you make a decision.

Hope this helps you.

Hi

Totally up to you, as long as they are relevant and they make sense.

Also irrelevant whether they know or not, it is your website end of day.

Might just accept them. Thanks (as always!) for being super-fast to respond!

You're very welcome.

I have precisely 100 posts/pages not indexed as they are excluded by 'no index' tag. I've had a look at AIOSEO for a way to fix but it's not obvious.

Had anyone else re

Make sure you check your
wordpress dashboard Settings -> Reading -> Discourage search engines from indexing this site checkbox first.

Just double-check that you don't have them checked as no index-no follow, Jean!

Have a very Merry Christmas, my friend!

Jeff🎄🎁

That was what I was trying to find in AIOSEO but I couldn't find it.

I'm not sure, Jean, but I think you need to go into Wordpress and settings and make sure that the no index / no follow box is unchecked! I could be wrong though! Either way, I hope you get it all sorted out!

Have a very Merry Christmas, my friend!

Jeff🎄🎁

Thanks a lot, Abie. Looks like I have a lot of work to do!

Best,

Jean

Hope you get it resolved sooner.

Kindly let us know how you get on.

Will do. Just off to clean house, put up tree and get to work by 2pm! All the best for Christmas and the New Year.

Joyous Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

So, while trying to figure this out, I came across a video that said if you submit a Google sitemap but use Yeost or something similar, it won't index what is on the Yeost site map.

As this is similar to what I did (but with AIOSEO) I have submitted a AIOSEO sitemap to GSC and will see what happens.

Will keep you in the loop.

Jean

Hi all

When I share a post from my website to Facebook it shows up really weird. Does anyone have any tips about how to fix it?

Thanks,

Jean

Looks like you got plenty of help here Jean

I guess Abie gave u a solution.

You can also use Facebooks free business templates. Have a look here.

I have seen some of them before now I know where they are coming from :)

8~))).

Will check it out, Stephen!

Many thanks,

Jean

Not a problem. What ever makes our lives easier is a bonus.

Yes, I am using AIO SEO, Abie! Will check out your suggestions.

Thanks a lot,

Jean

This worked! I can now choose what image to share and it looks A LOT better!

Thanks again,

Jean

You're very welcome.

If you mean the image size that makes it all weird, try resizing your image to 1200 x 628 px, that's the recommended size from Facebook.

Hi Denis.

It's already 1200px wide. (Not sure about the depth but that doesn't seem to be the issue.)

Best,

Jean

Facebook can be very fussy with images. Is this a featured image or an uploaded image? When this happens to me with the featured image I upload it (with the right pixels) instead...But it can be frustrating for sure...

It's just my banner / logo and it appears whether I just put the link in or share it from the website.

There is way to delete the image so that only text will appear. Just click on the X on the top of the image. As I said earlier Facebook has a way of dealing with images that can be very frustrating...

Got it sored through All in one SEO. Thanks a lot for responding.

Best,

Jean
