Easy TOC counting as internal and incoming links

  • Hi,

    I’m using the Easy table of contents plugin and already added the code to functions.php to tell Rank Math I’m using a table of contents.
    The issue is, Rank Math sees the table of contents links as Internal and Incoming link. On a new post where I did no internal linking, Rank Math is saying I have 25 incoming links, which is not correct.

    Is there any way to solve this?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Just to be sure, which code have you added? Could you post it so we can use it in a local installation to debug it?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Alberto,

    I installed the Easy table of contents plugin and then used the shortcode [ez-toc] to place the table where I wanted inside the post.

    Since it generates links to the headings, Rank Math is telling me I have 14 internal links in my latest post, which coincide with the 14 links the table of contents generated for the headings.

    Hi,

    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    On the latest post, Rank Math shows 19 internal and incoming links. There is a shortcode [ez-toc] inside the post. If you remove it and update, you’ll see those 19 links will go down to 0.

    Hello,

    It seems your login details don’t work anymore so our devs are not able to log in and check the issue, could you check it?

    Looking forward to help you.
