It must be analyses only. But it does explain a lot. I had the same thing happening to a bunch of images. And could never figure out why only those. But now I know, that were the only images I batch edited. Problem is, you need to go back to every image and click update for it to turn yellow or green again. But I figured its only an analyses, because the SEO is all still there.

Thanks Ron! This have been stop me for using bulk action. But now I want to enable comment for all images, I need to use the bulk action, if confirm it won't affect the SEO I will just ignore the red status, it is too much work if need to click update for all image.

That Yoast status measures your page content in relation to the focus keyword(s) you set. That's just to show YOU how good your SEO is when someone searches for the keyword(s) you have defined. Change that keyword and Yoast will give you a different status. And I guess that's what's happening when you bulk edit. But there's no reason to worry because your page content will still be the same (good or bad).

Are you sure that's all what defining a focus keyword does? I always thought that focus keyword would be included in some meta data on the image page. Can someone more familiar with the internals of Yoast SEO confirm one or the other version?

I just did a quick test and the YOAST Focus Keyword does not show up on the image page at all (and I verified this by reviewing the page source to confirm this).  This was news to me as well!

Yes, I'm sure. The only function the focus keyword has, is to show you how good or bad your page will perform in relation to that keyword. It's only a measurement tool and the focus keyword will not do anything good or bad to your actual page. It can't because it doesn't even get published.

  Boy did I misunderstand what that focus keyword is for. I thought it would help SEO, but its only to analyse if I implemented the focus of my image properly. Ow boy. Thats a lot of work done for nothing.

Yes, I was misled, too. Good that we have MSG and active discussions with better informed people! Thank you all for clarification of this.  :D

Same here spend too much time on adding focus keyword.

Man, glad I caught this discussion.  I just switched over to Yoast last night from All In One SEO and was about to go through all my images to add a focus word. Looks like that would have been a huge waste of time.

It looks like there might be a little misunderstanding in this thread...defining a focus keyword is how you are supposed to use Yoast.  There are several tutorials on the plugin author's page, but basically the whole point is to pick out a good SEO keyword and then use Yoast as a tool/checklist to make sure you've done all you can so your page will rank well for that keyword.

Yes, but if I add that focus keyword in the URL, title, meta data and description, I dont need to add the focus keyword in the focus keyword field to check if I added the focus keyword to  the URL, title, meta data and description I can skip that step if I want to. But its handy to have it there to do the check. But its not affection SEO if I populate the focus keyword field or not.

true - if you actually set all that info in iptc from the very start - but a quick look at actual images shows that's not true for most images, so amanda's advice will be a big help for most people
