    Hi Tom,

    I’m having an issue where my google search results are displaying shortcodes. Its not a huge deal and I dont know if its specific to WPSPs.

    So a search result will look like this:

    Episodes – The Fighter Pilot …
    Episodes [wp_show_posts id=”1023″] … The Fighter Pilot …

    I’ve installed Yoast and I’m wondering if thats whats causing the issue?

    Perhaps this is a question for the Generate Press forum or stack overflow not sure?

    That’s strange – Google shouldn’t ever see a shortcode (it seems the live content as it crawls the site).

    To my knowledge, the only way this would happen is if it crawled the site when the shortcode wasn’t executing (WPSP deactivated etc..).
