Since you did your work on this page the writing at the side of the picture has disappeared? And I notice on one category of pages there’s no SEO meta information typed in?
Thanks for coming back to me – questions are of course always welcome!
I’ll reply to each in turn.
1. I notice on one category of pages there’s no SEO meta information typed in?
Correct! Those 4x pages are ones I left to load the tags from the content on page-load. They fit the criteria for that well, the content is strong from the outset. Plus it means those pages give is a 100% relevancy rating, which is one of Google’s top metrics. By having several pages with the 100% relevancy it gives us extra leeway on the other pages to make them keyword rich in the tags without triggering any relevancy-warnings from Google.
2. Since you did your work on this page the writing at the side of the picture has disappeared?
I had noted that too, and made a note of it when I first looked at the site. It pre-dates me (it’s not uncommon for people to bring me sites with the odd problem, usually they already know about it so I don’t often bring it up.)
As a test to demonstrate that I quickly just removed all my work, by turning off the plugins:
- All In One SEO pack
- PB SEO Friendly Images
and the problem persisted. Feel free to give it ago yourself!
I can see that page uses a specific WordPress theme template – I wonder if that’s been changed? Or perhaps the theme or WordPress was updated recently, and it means some part of the custom template no longer works?
I do note that template file tries to bring in the WordPress page content with the function:
while other custom templates you have bring it in with the slightly different:
I’m not sure if that might help steer your investigations?
But yes, that issue isn’t related to the work I did at all.
Have you made any other updates over the past few days? To the theme, or WordPress itself?
Actually, I had a good look through the template file and fixed it.
I can’t say why or when it happened (I don’t touch templates as part of my SEO of course!) but that template file didn’t have the WordPress code to relate it to the post, so it couldn’t grab the content.
I added that in, et voila!
