Rank Math not recognising Power Words

  • Hi
    I’ve added a couple of Power words to the site description but these don’t seem to be recognised by Rank Math. I’m still getting the message “Your title doesn’t contain a power word. Add at least one.” in the summary.
    Ive tried to locate the Power words at different parts of the paragraph and changed them also with no effect.
    New to this so any assistance would be appreciated. (Power Words are Engage & Best)

  • Hello,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    Which power words are you using? Please check if they are listed here: https://rankmath.com/blog/power-words/#power-words-list. If it’s not listed here, you can use the following filter to add your words to be recognized as a power word by Rank math:

     * Filter to add custom Power Words
    add_filter( 'rank_math/metabox/power_words', function( $words ){
    	$new_words = [
    	return array_merge( $words, $new_words );

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Hi Michael,
    Power Words are “Engage” & “Best” but I have tried others. Have the same issue across a couple of my web pages.

    on this page also having issues where Focus Keyword not found in subheading(s) like H2, H3, H4, when it actually is.

    Let me know if theres anything further I can try.


    Are you using a page builder? If you are, which one?
