Links not counted with ACF

  • Hi,

    I use ACF’s text fields for my texts. The links I insert in the text are not counted in the WordPress back-end. How do I make sure that the links are counted?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    For now, we officially only support the ACF plugin. If you have the ACF plugin installed, please head over to Rank math dashboard and you will find the ACF module to enable.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.


    The module is well activated but the links are not recognized. You don’t have a way (code snippet or framework) for Rank Math to recognize links inserted in an ACF text field?


    No, it is just the module. But I think we could 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.


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

    Thank you.


    Thank you for the follow up.

    Could you please try adding the custom field to the list of custom field in your post or pages. Just head over to Rank math > Titles & Meta > Post/Pages and add your fields to be included in the page or post analysis.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    I added all my ACF field names on a different line but it doesn’t change anything. There is still 0 link displayed.


    Sorry to disappoint but currently, Rank Math only counts the links added in the post content. It doesn’t count the links added in the custom fields.

    With that being said, there are existing feature requests, so we’ve added your vote to our internal suggestions lists. If your suggestions are something that we’re able to introduce, we’ll be sure to let you know.

    In the meantime, if there’s anything else we can assist you with, please let us know. We are here to help.

    Thank you.

    All right then, I hope you can come up with a solution to this problem.

    Thank you very much.


    It has been noted by our team and they will surely look into it.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
