Title doesn’t contain a power word – when it does

  • Hi there,

    I am a very happy RankMath user, so thank you for making this awesome plugin!
    Speaking of awesome, which is a power word, I have one post where the analysis doesn’t recognize the power word used in the title.

    It doesn’t matter what power word I use, it keeps saying there is none.

    I’ve cleared cache, saved again, used other words, … nothing helps.
    Anything else I could try, please?

  • Having the same issue using the power word “best” in title but doesn’t seem to be picking it up.

    Hi Pascale & Luke,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us today.

    I am afraid that the Power words test does not currently support all languages. You can however add custom power words that you want detected by hooking into the following filter on your theme’s functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'rank_math/metabox/power_words', function( $words ){
    	$new_words = [
    		'test-word1',
    		'test-word2',
    		'test-word3',
    	];
    	return array_merge( $words, $new_words );
    });

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for getting back to me.
    The post is in English.

    The test works fine on all other (+100) posts.
    It’s just this one.

    Hello,

    We might need to 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:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/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):

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/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.

    Thank you. Done.
    Please, don’t modify anything.

    I just want to know what’s wrong. Happy to work on it myself.

    Hi Pascale,

    Thanks for the access.

    I have just tested this post with power words such as FREE and HOW-TO but these are detected. It is likely that the keyword that you are using does not exist in the plugin and you can fix this by adding the following snippet on your theme’s functions.php file:

    add_filter( 'rank_math/metabox/power_words', function( $words ){
    	$new_words = [
    		'must-see',
    		'astounding',
    	];
    	return array_merge( $words, $new_words );
    });

    I was unable to make changes in your theme and thus you will need to make the changes via FTP.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for taking the time.
    Strangely enough, I have just tried the same thing, and those words aren’t detected when I try it,

    Hello Pascale,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    If you made any changes to the functions.php file, they don’t seem to reflect as I can’t find the snippet anywhere in your file. Please counter check and let us know if the issue still persists.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I haven’t made any changes, no. What I meant was that if I try with the same words you used e.g. FREE, it doesn’t work. The word isn’t picked up.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I have added the free power word to your title and it seems to reflect on my end. See attached screenshot in sensitive data and let me know.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Could it be that you forgot the screenshot, please? 🙂

    Also, if it works for you, why doesn’t it work for me? That’s odd, since you’re working in the same backend.

    Okay, I can see the screenshot now. 🙂

    I wanted to perform a quick test, but it seems you’re still active in the post.
    Does it also work if you move the word free to the end?

    Never mind, I managed to test it now. If I move the currently used (but not detected) power word to the front, it’s detected. If I move your word (FREE° to the back, it’s not detected. So, it’s location-related. 🙁
