I have recently moved 2 websites to Rank Maths and love the plugin functionality thus far! That being said, I have noticed that Visual Composer elements created by Theme Developers don’t get factored into the On-Page SEO results.
For example with the theme I am currently using on one of the websites (Porto). If I place a “Porto Element” within Visual Composer called “Porto Heading” to any page, editing it to show an H3 title with my chosen keyword included.
The On-Page SEO results don’t register the above and still reference – “Focus Keyword not found in subheading(s) like H2, H3, H4, etc..”
The only way to correct this currently is to inspect the code and strip it out onto a standard text widget or something to that effect. This isn’t ideal as it makes editing the website way harder for the client.
What I wanted to know is if the above negatively affects the SEO for the page or if its merely not picking it up but still does the job.
The ticket ‘On-Page VC Elements Excluded In SEO Score’ is closed to new replies.
