SEO Analysis Only Runs 12 Tests

  • Hi,

    I have migrated from Squirrly to RankMath and so far find it much easier to use … and quicker. However, when running the SEO Analysis it only performs 12 tests in total … all of which I passed. My total SEO score is only 23/100.

    Surely there must be more tests than just 12?

    Thanks

    Have attached 2 screenshots … thanks

  • Hi Caelan,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    I am so glad to hear that you like the plugin.

    There are 34 tests in total. Sounds like you passed 12 tests 🙂

    Can you please share a screenshot of the SEO Analysis page so we can take a closer look and help you better?

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    The error may suggest that there is a connection issue to our API. Please run the SEO analysis a few more times and let us know if this fixes the problem.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi,

    I have run the analysis a few more times but still only have the 12 tests.

    I contacted my host thinking it may be something from their end but they came back saying:

    “No API connection needs to be allowed from our end.”

    Hi Caelen,

    Can you please head over to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard > Help

    Ensure that your plugin is connected to your account.

    Try to disconnect and connect it again if it isn’t.

    If that doesn’t work, we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    Support

    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:

    Temporary Login Without Password

    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):

    WP Security Audit Log

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Plugin was connected to site. I deactivated it. I then followed to ‘Activate Now’ button and it took me to a ‘Page Not Found’.

    I have sent login details as requested.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    You forgot to share the site URL on the sensitive data section.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi,

    It was hard to catch but there seems to be an issue with your website:
    https://i.rankmath.com/K8YmPp

    Looks like your website cannot connect with our API.

    Can’t even check the tests here: https://rankmath.com/tools/seo-analyzer/

    Basically, your server can’t talk to ours.

    We are taking a closer look.

    I request you to keep the access available for another 48-72 hours while our dev. team can check this in more detail.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    As mentioned by my colleague, it looks like your server is blocking the request from our SEO Analysis API server. Please whitelist requests from the following IP:

    104.20.193.153

    That should fix the issue. If you don’t know how to do that, please contact your hosting provider.

    Hope that helps. If there’s any issue, please let us know. Thank you.

    Hi,

    I contacted my host support and they replied by saying:

    Hi Caelan,

    We checked and found that the above IP address is not blocked at our server end.

    ———————

    Hello,

    I have taken a closer look at this issue and all I see is that our server is unable to fetch the homepage of your site – the request keeps timing out without any response, even if I try to increase the timeout limit to 30 seconds. When I open your site in a browser, I can see that it is loading fairly quickly, so the issue is specific to the request made by our server. I’m almost sure it is related to the firewall or some kind of security feature on your server.

    If it’s not the IP that is being blocked, it might be the user-agent sent by our server along with the request. Please ask your hosting provider if the following user-agent is blocked or not:

    RankMathChecker/2.0.0; https://rankmath.com

    Please also ask if there’s any other feature on the server that might be causing the timeout issue.

    Hope that helps.
