Staging Site- Low URL score

  • We operate with a stating site. For us, this allows us to build, test and edit in a secure, non-live environment, and then push changes to the live site.

    Currently we get a warning that the permalink doesn’t contain the keyword as in staging it is structured as however when pushed to the live site, it changes to

    Is there a way we can set this to ‘ignore’ in staging so that we get a true reflection of the score, or can you share how many points you get for the permalink and we can add on to each score when working on the SEO.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    The keywordInPermalink test has a total score of 5. You can add the following code snippet on your theme’s functions.php file on the staging site to remove this test and add the score to another test:

     * Rank Math snippet to disable 'keywordInPermalink' test.
     * @param array  $tests Array of tests with score
     * @param string $type  Object type. Can be post, user or term.
    add_filter( 'rank_math/researches/tests', function( $tests, $type ) {
            //Add the score(5) to keywordInMetaDescription(2)
    	$tests['basic']['keywordInMetaDescription']['score'] = 7;
        return $tests;
    }, 10, 2 );

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
