Focus keyword issue

  • Well, this issue has been raised several times. However, I am not able to find the solution till now.

    RankMath forces the user to use the exact character by character focus keyword while it is not possible to stuff the exact words in the articles or blog posts.

    RankMath does not detect the combination of words used in the articles which I believe any search engine can detect it for SEO purposes.

    For example, if a focus keyword is “document economy” while in the article I use documenting the economy then RankMath does not detect this.

    This effects scoring, however, I believe search engines don’t mind this.

    Please add this feature to RankMath.

    Overall, during the last 2 months, my command of SEO is definitely improved, using rank math. But the rigidity of keywords hurts.

  • Hello Usama,

    Thanks for your suggestions, I will send them to the dev team and hopefully in a future update, we can see it implemented in the plugin.

    Looking forward to help you.


    Appreciate your feedback and we will see what we can do about that without hurting the performance.

    With that said, please stay advised that these tests are just guidelines and one does not need to follow them religiously.

    At the end of the day, the content needs to be written for the readers and not for the search engines.

    Scoring higher points in Rank Math’s tests won’t guarantee higher rankings.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
