Hi All,

On around the 30th of May, I made a few changes to my site. I updated Yoast SEO and all of a sudden my rankings began dropping like flies. I am aware of the media redirect issue on yoast, so I have rolled back my website to before the update happened.

Now I am seeing in search console, increasing "Index Coverage" Redirect issues. Mainly on URLS like this:


They seem to be /tag/ and /category/ but with /feed/ on the end.

This coincides with the drop in rankings on that date.

Does anyone know a fix for this?

Hello jph888 and welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

If you haven't already done so, there's a NEW critical update needed for Yoast: [webmasterworld.com...]

Yoast was causing abnormalities in ranking for months prior to the fix.
