If the Yoast SEO plugin is not showing in the page source code of your website, there could be a few reasons for this. Here are some common explanations:
Plugin Configuration: Ensure that the Yoast SEO plugin is correctly configured and enabled on your WordPress website. You should check the plugin settings to confirm that it\\\'s set up to generate meta tags, Open Graph tags, and other SEO-related elements.
Theme Compatibility: Some WordPress themes may have their own SEO settings or may conflict with certain aspects of the Yoast SEO plugin. Ensure that your theme is compatible with Yoast SEO and doesn\\\'t override its functionality.
Caching: If you are using a caching plugin or a server-level caching mechanism, it may be serving cached versions of your pages, which can sometimes exclude dynamic changes made by SEO plugins. Clear your website\\\'s cache and test again.
Content Visibility: Yoast SEO may not generate certain elements if they are not relevant to the content on a specific page or post. For example, not every page may have Open Graph tags if there are no social sharing features on that page.
Code Inspection Tools: When checking the page source code, make sure you are using browser developer tools or viewing the actual HTML source code, not a cached version. Different browsers may display cached versions, so use the appropriate developer tools to inspect the code.
Plugin Conflicts: There could be conflicts with other plugins on your website that interfere with the Yoast SEO plugin\\\'s functionality. Deactivate other plugins temporarily to see if the issue persists.
Plugin Updates: Ensure that you are using the latest version of the Yoast SEO plugin, as older versions may have bugs or compatibility issues.
If you have checked all of the above and are still experiencing issues with Yoast SEO not appearing in the page source code, you may want to reach out to the Yoast support team for assistance. They can provide more specific guidance based on your website setup and configuration.
