Why is there a limit of Focus Pages in Squirrly SEO?
The limit of Focus Pages per site is something that’s meant to help you stay focused on the work that needs to be done so that you can more easily reach your ranking goals.
Focusing on a few Focus Pages at once is more than enough as you have to complete all task associated with Google’s top ranking factors.
Once you start ranking in the top 10 with a Focus Page, you can change the Focus Page and focus on another Focus Page.
There are big companies that have teams working with ~ 5 Landing Pages per website. There is a huge amount of work for each Focus Page to rank it in the TOP 10 of Google, so adding more of them will just make your SEO Strategy harder to execute.

How Can I Change the Main Keyword for a Focus Page?
One of the factors that the Focus Pages system takes into account when generating tasks and calculating a page’s chances of ranking is the MAIN keyword for which you’ve optimized that page using the SEO Live Assistant (SLA).
Again, the keyword that’s currently your main keyword associated with that Focus Page will have a ★STAR symbol next to it.
3️⃣ To change the main keyword for your Focus Page, click on the list of keywords located at the right side of the screen. (as shown in the screenshot below)
4️⃣ Clicking on the list of keywords will prompt a new panel to appear.
From the drop-down, select the keyword you want the Focus Pages system to recognize as the main keyword for your Focus Page. Click on Save Main Keyword to save your settings.
5️⃣ The final step is to Request a New Audit to update the report and receive fresh information.
Once you Request a New Audit, the Focus Pages system will start taking into account the new main keyword you’ve selected to calculate your chances of rankings and generate keyword-related tasks for your next report.
And your changes will be visible in the keywords list that appears on the right side of the screen when you click on the Keyword Element for your Focus Page (namely: the new keyword you’ve selected as the main keyword will have the ★ S T A R symbol next to it).
Note! If you want to further optimize your page (increase the optimization percentages or optimize for more keywords), you can click on Optimize for this.
By selecting the main keyword for your Focus Page – you’re basically telling our Focus Pages system:
This is the keyword I want you to take into account when calculating my Focus Page’s chances of ranking and configuring to-dos because this is the main keyword I’m interested in ranking for with this Focus Page.
And now you know how to do it – right from the Focus Pages section of Squirrly SEO.
Squirrly will sync the information related to which is a page’s main keyword.
If you change the main keyword inside the SEO Live Assistant for a page you’ve added as a Focus Page, our Focus Pages system will consider that keyword to be the main keyword when calculating the chances of ranking and generating tasks.
And vice-versa. Changing the main keyword for your Focus Page from the Focus Pages section will also change the main keyword inside the SEO Live Assistant.
Is there a Way to Remove the no-index Pages from the Sitemap using Squirrly?
Q: Is there a way to remove the no-index pages from the sitemap? I get the following recommendation: Pages with the no-index meta tag have been found in the XML sitemap. This is confusing for search engines since sitemaps should only list pages that have to be crawled and indexed.
A: Yes, you can use Squirrly SEO to remove the no-index pages from the sitemap.
The easiest way to do this is to go to: Squirrly SEO > SEO Configuration > Tweaks and Sitemap > Sitemap XML and ACTIVATE the option: Automatically exclude from sitemap the URLs with‘Noindex.’
You also can do this by post type using the Automation > Configuration functionality. Simply select the post type and switch off: “Include In Sitemap”.
Q: Does Squirrly SEO work seamlessly with any themes (without using any page builders) the same way Rankmath and Yoast work with Elementor? Especially Blocksy and BricksBuilder. With Blocksy, I’m trying to use only Gutenberg and want to ditch page builders.
A: Yes, it does. It works awesomely with Elementor.
The SEO Live Assistant Module of Squirrly SEO works on the front-end of Elementor, just as you’re creating or editing your Elementor page. We were the first to integrate our real-time SEO Live Assistant with it on the front end while editing. It works very well with Gutenberg as well.
The SEO Live Assistant from Squirrly works on the front-end of Bricks , just as you’re creating or editing your Bricks page. You can do Multiple Keyword Optimization using the Live Assistant together with Briefcase in the Bricks Editor.
As an agency, if a client stops using us, what should we do with installed Squirrly on their website?
Using the Web Dev Kit allows you to customize Squirrly SEO and install it on your clients’ sites.
In Squirrly SEO, you have the option to either temporarily disconnect a site or completely delete a website from your account (from the Cloud App). You can always reconnect a disconnected site. Disconnecting a site won’t DELETE it from the Squirrly Cloud. All information will continue to be stored, in case you want to restore the connection.
Deleting a site will lead to all information related to optimizations made, keyword research, and more to be deleted for that site as well. We don’t recommend deleting a site unless you are 100% sure you will no longer need that website.
However, even if you delete a site from your account, your clients won’t lose optimizations made using the SEO Live Assistant, for example. That content will continue to be optimized even after you stop using Squirrly on their site.
Are the settings after activating the WebDevKit under “Customize & Download Squirrly SEO Plugin ” set once?
Q: Question about the WebDevKit. I have different projects that need different SEO settings for the front-end and different branding names. Are the settings after activating the WebDevKit under “Customize & Download Squirrly SEO Plugin ” set once and not changeable or is it possible to set them again individually for each project (and plugin download)? That would be great and give even more freedom for publishers.
A: Yes, it is possible to set them again individually for each project, as you can have multiple zip files. More about this here >>
We’ve created Web Dev Kit for Co-Branding Capabilities, but also as a B I G requests from agencies and developers who really wanted to offer their customers the absolute best – while also being able to install the plugin and to monitor the clients from a single account.
