  • Yoast asking to index my site’s SEO data

    Posted by Rob Dyer on May 21, 2020 at 8:06 am

    From the Yoast site: “Since version 14.0, Yoast SEO stores metadata for all pages in a
    separate database table. This allows us to fetch all of a page’s
    metadata in one simple database request (rather than lots of individual
    requests), resulting in much faster page loads.”

    Any reason why I should *not* accept this on the latest version of the plugin?

    I use SiteGrounds SG Optimizer plugin too – which may overlap? (I don’t know.)

    Yeah, Yoast is bugging me about it, too. I haven’t looked into it yet. I wouldn’t expect any issues as Yoast is a very professional plug-in. Just back up first, just in case.

    And, putting data into a separate table shouldn’t impact SG Optimizer.

    OK thanks – and thanks for the backup reminder.

    I’ve been allowing Yoast to index as it requests for a while now without any problems whatsoever.
