FIX: Could not check Focus Keywords in posts

  • This morning i did the RankMath SEO Analyzer and got this warning “Could not check Focus Keywords in posts – the post meta table exceeds the size limit.”, does this means that the focus keyword is not included in the meta tag.

    And how can i solve this problem?

  • Hello,

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

    This error in the SEO Analyzer occurs when the default table limit is already reached. However, this does not affect your site’s keywords as it is only in our internal tests’ default limits.

    In this case, please add this filter on your site:

     * Filter to change the Post Meta Table Limit
    add_filter('rank_math/seo_analysis/postmeta_table_limit', function ( $limit ) {
    		return 500000;

    And here is how to add a filter/hook to your site:

    Once done, clear the SEO Analyzer cache in Rank Math > Status & Tools > Database Tools > Flush SEO Analysis cache and check again.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you.

    I am having the exact same issue. I installed the code above using Code Snippets (as PHP code), flushed the seo analyzer cache, and even disconnected and reconnected the plugin. I also flushed the wordpress cache as well. The error message still shows up. I am using WooCommerce with the Storefront theme.

    Any other ideas on how to fix?


    @Joel If the issue still persists, please try increasing the value of the limit.

    You can try this value instead:


    Let us know how this goes.

    Thank you.

    That did indeed fix the issue – thank you. I am now running into a new issue though that wasn’t showing up before though. It says:

    “Some Javascript files don’t seem to be minified.

    I already have all Javascript and CSS minified in the Siteground Optimizer plugin though. Any ideas on how to fix?


    Are you using Jetpack or WooCommerce on your site? If so, please get in touch with their support to see if they can assists you with this one.

    Let us know how it goes. Looking forward to helping you.

    Thank you.
