Warning: The focus keyphrase doesn’t appear in the first paragraph

The warning:

The focus keyphrase doesn't appear in the first paragraph of the copy. Make sure the topic is clear immediately.

The Problem

Our page analysis was unable to locate the keyphrase at the beginning of your content.

In some cases, HTML code for images, styles, iframe, videos may interfere with our page analysis' ability to identify the first paragraph. We are aware of the issue and are working on a solution.

The Solutions

  1. You can either rearrange your content to begin with a paragraph or ignore the warning if you know you included the focus keyphrase in the first paragraph.
  2. If you are using a page builder plugin or theme Yoast may not be able to integrate with it. This guide explains more: Is the Plugin Compatible with xyz Pagebuilder?
