CAROL’S BLOGGER TIP
BLOGGER TIP #29 ~ WordPress ~ Classic Editor Vs. Gutenberg ~ Does it Affect your SEO?
Monday morning in a Membership Q & A I am in, several questions about using Classic Editor Vs. Gutenberg came up. These were primarily about how to add no~follow and sponsored links. (BTW, you can’t add a sponsored link in Classic without a plugin or inserting code; neither are good options.)
This morning I watched a webinar by Yoast SEO. During the Q & A, someone asked the question: “Does using Classic or Gutenberg affect your SEO?” I’d never thought about that. Can you guess the answer?
The answer was a resounding YES. According to the experts at Yoast SEO, Google knows which editor you are using. (Do they know what color shirt I’m where when I’m creating a post?) Since Gutenberg offers more tools for editing, creates a better flow and user experience, Google will rank a post using Gutenberg higher than a post using Classic Editor.
They also said that in this competitive blogging world, every little tool we can use helps to increase our ranking.
BOTTOM LINE: If you are using Gutenberg, congratulations. If you are still using Classic Editor, you need to switch to Gutenberg, not just for better editing tools, but for better SEO.
P.S. I waited until winter of 2019 to switch to Gutenberg. Yes, it’s a learning expereince, but I’ve never looked back. It’s a much better writing experience and you have so many more tools to use. Now, I love it.
P.S.S. According to WordPress, “the Classic Editor plugin will be officially supported until December 31, 2021.” What does that mean?
“This means that all plugin authors, theme authors, third parties, and the WordPress Core team will no longer feel obligated to support two editors. So, from 2022 henceforth, not only will this plugin become incompatible, but everything else in WordPress too. The latter will happen sooner; so, it’s best to start using the new editor before that happens.”
Now, let’s see what your hostesses were up to last week.
Carol at Bluesky at Home
I shared Autumn in August last week, so that’s why I had six posts.
Michelle at Thistle Key Lane
Here are my features of the week ~ it’s all about fall.
Cloches have been wonderful to display home collectibles and accessories for decades. Julie of Restyle Relove shared how to make a base for a cloche using terra cotta pots.
This yarn pumpkin project from Corine of Junk to Gems is one of my favorites. I checked my yarn stash and I plan to make my own version.
I absolutely love using leaf ~ gold or copper ~ in home decor projects. CIndy of Reinvented Delaware shared her new copper~leaf pumpkin project.
Be sure to check what Julie and Michelle chose as their features. Now it’s time for you to start linking.
