WordPress: SEO Ranking bad after setting “read more” tags

After some weeks of cleaning up my blog, i remarked a very bad ranking from under the first 10 on google to nirvana

What did i change?

  • saved wp-login with htaccess to non-public
  • set post content with “read more” buttons

Background:

  • Search engine like google wasn’t able to pull content of posts which are cut by “more”
  • Search engine wasn’t able to pull relinks over the wp-admin url by the internal wordpress feeds

I was forced to turn back my settings and wait for better ranking.. not safe but must be..

WordPress: Replace or Purge Text on all Posts by mysql

If you have to remove a link, text or else on all wordpress posts pages with same signs like the “read more” tag do:

 mysql -u dbadmin -p 

– enter password
– change database by:

use databasename

– run change command(SET “more-tag-source-html-pre” WordPress reformat the output here! ):

mysql > UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = REPLACE (post_content,'<!!--more-->',''); 

– System Echo’s:

Query OK, 88 rows affected (0.01 sec)
Rows matched: 706 Changed: 88 Warnings: 0
