A couple of "pre-sales" questions from Yoast user

  • Resolved jorge

    1. We have a pretty big site (over 90,000 posts). Question is if your migration tool (Yoast to RankMath) can handle that without data loss?
    2. Unlike most sites, our CATEGORY and TAG pages must be optimized. Question is if all the RankMath tools (Keyword optimization, Rich Snippets, etc) are available for them.

    Thank you!

  • Thank you Michael, we’ll be waiting, this is a big disadvantage versus Yoast, but I’m sure it can be easily solved.

    Hello Jorge,

    Usually, the category pages show the collection of posts that’s the reason why we’ve not provided the option to select the Rich Snippet type on the Taxonomy pages as selecting wrong schema type could in fact have an adverse effect on the SEO. Which schema type are you planning to use on the Category pages?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    For a small site, the Category/Tag pages are not useful, but for a medium to big site is another history, several our category and Tag pages have custom content and are high ranked on Google, that’s why we are planning to use multiple schema types in those pages, including: PERSON, EVENT, PLACE and PRODUCT

    There are a lot of post about the SEO value of the taxonomy pages, even Yoast has a post about it:

    Using category and tag pages for SEO

    Using category and tag pages for SEO

    Our Yoast SEO plugin helps you with optimizing your category pages: it analyzes your category page content. For instance, if there’s enough content on it. Moreover, it allows you to change the social details for category pages and provides you with a snippet preview.

    So, I don’t really understand why you guys choose to neglect those pages and just allow a limited set of tools, this is a clear disadvantage versus Yoast

    Category and Tag pages are actually more like landing pages
    Another bit form Yoast:

    “Your category archives are more important than individual pages and posts.. If your site is a blog and you write several articles about a topic, your category for that topic should be #1 in the search result.”

    So, I respect if you think different, but I’ll appreciate if you guys let me know if you are planning to offer your full set of tools for the Taxonomy pages (Including Rich Snippets) or not.
    If not I can peacefully move forward and look for other ways to solve my needs

    Thank you!.

    Guys, Michael wrote about this topic “this is by design”

    So please, let me know if that is going to change or not, so I can move forward to another solution
    I tried to show you that this is a major mistake, but seems that you think different about it.

    Appreciate the input.

    We have noted it down as a suggestion and we will see what the best way to handle this scenario is.

    We will be releasing an update with a solution very soon.

    In the meantime, please do not hesitate to let us know if you need help with anything at all.
