Yoast SEO Bug

Recently there was a major update of the Yoast SEO Plugin which had a bug where they introduced a new setting and the default value for the settings was set to “No” when it should have been set to “Yes”. Leaving the setting to No could possibly have negative effects on your SEO. More information about this bug is on yoasts website.

We will be making this change to all websites that we host to correct this however this may take us some time to work our way though all websites.

We recommend if possible that you change this setting yourself so this can be changed in the quickest possible time. To action this do the following:

Login to your website admin area and go to:

  1. SEO
  2. Search Appearance
  3. Media Tab
  4. and change Redirect attachment URLs to the attachment itself? to Yes
  5. Click Save Changes
