Configuration Guide for Yoast WooCommerce SEO

Last update: 17 January, 2017

Once you’ve set up the Yoast WooCommerce SEO plugin, you’ll want to set things up so they work the way you want them to.

You can find the settings for Yoast WooCommerce under the SEO menu.

Yoast SEO > Woocommerce SEO

Let us go through the settings one by one.

Twitter Product Cards

Twitter no longer supports product cards. Learn more directly from Twitter here.

Schema & OpenGraph additions

There’s also a feature for improving the output of Schema and OpenGraph markup. This allows for (among other things) better sharing on Facebook. These settings look like this:

Schema & OpenGraph Additions

The same as for the Twitter Product Cards applies here. If the attribute you want to select isn’t there, just create it.

Note: This section is only displayed when you have enabled breadcrumbs in our WordPress SEO plugin.

Enabling this will make sure you’re website is outputting the Yoast SEO breadcrumb, instead of the WooCommerce breadcrumb. The advantage is our breadcrumb is better customizable and gets picked up by search engines better. And all that at the tick of a box:

Breadcrumbs

Admin

The last two options are really simple. To avoid overcrowding your product page’s backend with a lot of columns, there’s an option to remove the Yoast SEO columns. And if you want the WooCommerce metabox to show up above the Yoast SEO metabox, select the second option:

Admin

Apart from these settings, the Yoast WooCommerce SEO plugin also does some things automatically, like removing stuff from the XML sitemaps that doesn’t belong there.

However, with regards to setting up the plugin: you’re done! Have fun with it!
