  • Hello William,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    That test usually checks for presence of your focus keyword in previous posts.

    If you have no posts, you can ignore that.

    If you have too many posts, you must give it some time to look for focus keyword in all of them.

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

    I am following this ticket as I have the same issue. So we basically don’t need to do anything?

    Hi Claudia,

    That is right, the notice should clear up after the query is complete.

    Please let us know if we can help further. Thank you.

    We are searching in database. I have the same issue.


    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    This notice should clear up after a short while. Please give this a bit of time.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    I got the same issue but I do not know how to do the trick. This link for this issue: https://ahbusinesstechnology.com/dora-process-1-hot-basic-interview-question/

    Just as my colleague said, you don’t need to do anything since it is Rank Math scanning a lot of posts on your site. Once it is done, you won’t see that message. But don’t worry, it is not a fail nor an issue, everything is running fine on your website.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Can you define “a lot of posts”? Because it is happening on my new site too, and between published posts and drafts, I have a total of 15 posts!

    Hi Alberto,

    There are some posts have the same issue although RankMathSEO plugin already was installed more than 2 days. How long can it finish scanning on my posts?. Another example for the issue is here. Do we need to add code in function to solve the problem like the table of content issue?

    There is one more issue after installing RANKMATHSEO to replace Yoast. Google custom search can not find these posts that have the issue “We are searching in database” in its searching results. I tried to add the post title for searching many times but it still failed in search. You can test on my website here Thanks.


    Could you please update to the latest beta and see if that fixes the issue for you?

    Otherwise, removing the focus keyword and adding it again should work.

    I must add that this is happening for rest than 10 users out of 300K active installs. This means, this is not easy to replicate and we suspect it has something to do with DB engine you are using.

    But, please let us know if the beta fixes the issue.

    Thank you.


    I have that same problem. I get this error in all my posts.

    Hi Halil,

    Please remove the focus keyword and add it again on the posts where you are seeing this issue.

    Otherwise, please update to the beta like in my previous post and see if the issue is fixed.

    Thank you.

    I confirmed that this way could not do the trick although I removed the keywords and added it again after updating beta version.

    How can I fix it?


    It seems Rank Math no longer works because I have tried it with my two sites and is giving me issues.

    I have opened support ticket but no support was giving to me.

    When i write a post, add my keyword and save the keyword will fail to save, i have updated to the beta version still doenst work.

    I even created a new site and just tried the Rank Math still doesnt work for me


    Since we did not hear back from you for 15 days, we are assuming that you found the solution. We are closing this support ticket.

    If you still need assistance or any other help, please feel free to open a new support ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Thank you.
