  1. Hi!

    Thanks for your awesomeness!

    What I need to know is why do we delete “%%sep%% %%sitename%%” in the Post Types section of Titles & Metas?

    Because there’s no rational or reasons why it’s better and/or what it could do to harm your results, I hesitate to blindly delete them. This instruction is at 3:00 in your vid.


  2. How did you get the meta tag or link that you used from your note pad to insert to webmaster tools for Goolge search console ? @1.33

  3. hello!
    I love write seo code as i learned from your blog better than doing other things respect Rankya <3
    bcz i've bought all seo plugins and they all have limits and problems:
    1) keywords are really important nowadays (focus keywords).
    2) Aio seo pack doesn't show meta keywords on custom pages and custom categories.
    3) Seo by Yoast premium really sucks; problem on meta robots even you buy the plugin.. problems with local seo, and problems with custom types. microdata problems it can mark your home page as blog and your blog as webpage.
    4) Premium Ultimate Seo is good but it doesn't work as well with some themes. and it have same problems of keywords on custom pages and categories
    5) SmartCrawl Seo premium of wpmudev is fast and easy to use but have the same problems.
    6) Squirrly Seo (premium) and SeoPressor (premium) have all these problems too.

  4. Hello i have a question, i have Yoast Installed but when i go to the option SEO –>Tools i have only two options Bulk Editon and Import and Export i cant find “File Editon” i had read on the web that “This menu will not appear if your WordPress install has disabled file editing. Please enable file editing or edit the file through FTP.” … but i have try to search for option called “Disabled file Editing” and i cant find it is driving me crazy!!!

    Is there a solution to this? i would be very happy if you could help me with this issue, thank you so much.

  5. Thanks this video helped me figure out why I was not generating a sitemap for my site using the YOAST SEO plug in.

  6. Hi’RankYa,  
    Thanks for your useful Tutorial – as I got a lot from it. Although toward the end when you mentioned bonuses for Facebook and Twitter – you said that it would be below this video – so my question is… to what is the proper link to add those bonuses? Also, my Canonical URL isn’t showing up when I press – ctrl “U”  any advise?
