    I use the latest Wordpress and Yoast version.
    I tried everything in Yoast but it adds a noindex,nofollow to my startsite. My header looks like this:

    Code:
    [COLOR=#333333][FONT=sans-serif]In my header the plugin always adds noindex nofollow to my site. I tried to deactivate it everywhere but it just dont disappear.[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#333333][FONT=sans-serif]Thats whats in my header:
    <!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.4.7 <YOAST URL> -->
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"/>
    <meta name="description" content="xxxx"/>
    <link rel="canonical" href="MYURL" />
    <meta property='og:locale' content='en_US'/>
    <meta property='og:type' content='article'/>
    <meta property='og:title' content='xxxx'/>
    <meta property='og:description' content=xxxx'/>
    <meta property='og:url' content='MYURL'/>
    <meta property='og:site_name' content='xxxx'/>
    <!-- / Yoast WordPress SEO plugin. -->[/FONT][/COLOR]

    Why do you want to keep yoast installed? Used it as a guid to optimaze your website and remove it after. Yoast doesnt rank your site.
