I've been using Yoast plugin for WordPress and Woocommerce and there are several points I just don't understand.
1) It keeps telling me I have no internal links when Woocommerce automatically adds three related products to the page automatically. I have the paid upgrade to Woocommerce, so I don't understand why these links don't satisfy Yoast.
2) It keeps telling me that I don't have 300 words of copy as if my product listings were blog posts. Surely they must know the difference between a blog post and a product. (my competitors even don't have large copy and they are some of the largest eComm sites anywhere.)
3) Most of my products have 20ish images showing different angles of the product, usage, lifestyle etc. Add to this usually half a dozen gallery images and then multiple images associated to size and color selections. My question is about alt tags and keyword stuffing. Imagine the product is a swiss army knife.(not really but good example). You have multiple pictures showing different uses for the tools included, different gallery shots and different colors and other options. You may have 30-40 images in total. To keep the alt tags useful of readers requires saying Swiss army knife every time. However this becomes keyword stuffing according to Yoast. I'm just not sure how to correctly handle this.
I'd appreciate any guidance or advice.
Thanks in advance
