How to disable the ‘Text Link Counter’ feature

The text link counter helps you keep track of the internal and outbound links in your texts. Links help crawlers find your posts and pages and figure out the structure of your site. Your visitors also use links to navigate your content. The text link counter feature is automatically enabled in Yoast SEO. You find it in the Posts overview screen.

If, for some reason, you want to turn this feature off, follow the steps below.

  1. Log in to your WordPress website.

    When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’.
