Yes, I have a site for this blog. We wouldn’t be together right now if I didn’t. But that doesn’t mean that I understand anything about its inner workings.
To wit: I scrolled down into unknown territories the other day and found the following:
“Yoast SEO has not fetched your site’s indexability status from RYTE.”
Well, now. Should I be happy? Worried? Scared? Curious? Alarmed? Offended?
I decided to parse the sentence. I quite like the word “fetch.” It conjures up my West Virginia heritage. As in: “I’ll fetch the paper.” Or: “We fetched that old dawg from the pound.”
I still don’t know why Yoast or SEO haven’t fetched my indexability. More to the point, I don’t know what my indexability is and why it matters. See, that’s what concerns me.
Somebody knows something that I don’t. A lot of people know things that I don’t know. That’s not new. I just sort of wish I knew what it was that they know that I don’t.
I suppose it’s a bit like a party that everyone’s been invited to but me. I don’t necessarily want to go to the party but I sure wish I’d been invited.
