Import from Yoast SEO lasts a very long time

  • Hello!
    There is a site with 10,000 thousand posts. Prior to that, I used the Yoast Seo plugin, started importing settings.

    But the process lasts a very long time (already about forty minutes) and does not download.

    What to do?

    I tried to note only the import of not all data, the result, too

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today and sorry for the inconvenience.

    I can suggest that you increase the number of items that are imported per run by adding the following code snippet to your theme’s functions.php file:

     * Number of items to import per run.
     * @param int $items_per_page Default 100.
    add_filter( 'rank_math/importers/items_per_page', function( $items_per_page ) {
     $items_per_page = "500";
     return $items_per_page;

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Thanks for the answer!
      Solved the problem as follows:

    1. Cleared caches on the site and

    2. disabled plugins – Autoptimize, W3 Total Cache.

    3. Made an import.

    4.Then he turned on the plugins again
