    Now that the content for our new site is finished, we are going to start to work on some SEO.

    This is the first page we are working on:

    http://visualimpactsystems.com/web-site-design/

    It is built with a ‘normal’ page (/web-site-design) with a “Dynamic Template” (that has the title, the three paragraphs of content below that, and then the ‘portfolio’). [Hopefully, we did this correctly].

    So, now that we want to optimize the page, Yoast was telling us that there is “no content” on the page. Does this mean that the search engines don’t ‘read’ the content in the Dynamic Template? If so, should we just copy the content from the Dynamic Template and just paste in onto the actual “page”? [Q: Will this be considered “duplicate content” by the search engines?].

    [ Note: We did put some text on the actual “page,” and it does not show up when we view the page in a browser. So, is the “page” just a ‘placeholder’ for the Dynamic Template content? ].

    Then, the SEO company suggests that we add a relevant image and associate our page keyword to it in the alt image text. If we put an image on the actual “page” (/web-site-design), will there be any ‘issues’ with the search engines?

    They are also telling us to change the “H1 tag” of the page title “WEB SITE DESIGN” to “Web Site Design in Michigan.” Are they asking us to change the page title, or is there somewhere we can ‘associate’ this with the page title? (a “Subtitle”?).

    Thanks for your help.

    [ Note: We did put some text on the actual “page,” and it does not show up when we view the page in a browser. So, is the “page” just a ‘placeholder’ for the Dynamic Template content? ].

    Yes, the page is just the container/placeholder for the Dynamic Template. However if you added text to the page you can use the “Post/Page content” element to display it in the “Dynamic Template”. In this case the page is not only a placeholder but the page content is used dynamic template content.

    [Q: Will this be considered “duplicate content” by the search engines?]

    No, if you don’t use the same page content over and over again (different templates, different pages, etc. with the same text content) it’s not a duplicate content.

    [So, now that we want to optimize the page, Yoast was telling us that there is “no content” on the page.]

    Yes because Yoast isn’t aware of the dynamic template and the content of the dynamic template. Kriesi uses a buffer to generate the content and then outputs the (final) html code. On the other hand Yoast just checks the content of the text editor on the page/post editor screen and can’t check if a dynamic template exists. Just ignore this warning.

    [Then, the SEO company suggests that we add a relevant image and associate our page keyword to it in the alt image text. If we put an image on the actual “page” (/web-site-design), will there be any ‘issues’ with the search engines?]

    No, I don’t think so.

    [They are also telling us to change the “H1 tag” of the page title “WEB SITE DESIGN” to “Web Site Design in Michigan.” Are they asking us to change the page title, or is there somewhere we can ‘associate’ this with the page title? (a “Subtitle”?).]

    Yes you need to change the page title because only the page title is wrapped into a h1 tag. Subtitles and standard text content won’t use h1.

    Dude,

    Using the “Post/Page Content” element in the Dynamic Template Builder does exactly what were need (Yoast ‘sees’ it, so teh search engines will now also ‘see’ it—without the danger of duplicate content).

    Thanks for your efforts!
