Not too long ago, you may have started noticing a lot of pages in Google search results that don’t really look like they should be there. These results lead to a blog post, but the “post” is actually just an image with the associated alt text. It has all of the top and sidebar trappings of a normal blog post, but it’s not a post itself.These pages are showing up in search because of an update to the Yoast SEO plugin that, perhaps accidentally, enabled those pages to be indexed.
