The SEO add-on will optimize your ajax loaded content for search engines and site visitors by generating standard WordPress paging URLs with each Ajax Load More query.
Quickly and easily enable paging URLs and provide visitors the ability to use their forward and back browser buttons to navigate through the ajax loaded pages.
How It Works
Implementing friendly URLs is quick and easy – simply set the seo parameter to true within the Ajax Load More shortcode and your pagination URLs will be enabled.
From custom post types and custom taxonomies to category and tag archives you can add paging URLs in any situation.
[ajax_load_more seo="true" post_type="portfolio" taxonomy="portfolio-type" taxonomy_terms="design" posts_per_page="4"]
Learn more about Shortcode implementation in the section below.
A generic homepage template (index.php) displaying your most recent posts.
Blog Landing Page
A standard listing page displaying your most recent posts.
A standard WordPress category page – this example will start on page 4.
Author pages can also be paged – this example will start on page 3.
Note – if using multiple instances of Ajax Load More on a single page the SEO functionality will be deactivated as URLs can not be generated on more than a single instance of the shortcode.
Both Pretty and Ugly Permalinks are supported by the SEO add-on. To ensure the plugin performs as intended you MUST visit your Ajax Load More Settings page and select your website’s Permalink structure from the list.
Posts Per Page
To avoid page not found (404) errors and other issues that could arise on category, tag and other archive/listing pages, we recommend the value of the posts_per_page parameter in your shortcode be the same or greater than the value of Blog pages show at most setting defined in your WordPress admin – this setting is found under settings > reading.
Ajax Load More has a fallback in place that checks both values and will adjust the posts_per_page shortcode parameter if it is lower than the Blog pages show at most value.
You won’t always want your content to be generating paging URLs. To get around this you must activate the SEO add-on within each of your ajax_load_more shortcodes – this will give you full control over where paging will happen on your website.
Simply set seo to true and your paging URLs will be implemented automatically – you can also set the seo value while building a shortcode in the shortcode builder.
