Typing Lag Fix for Yoast SEO


Fixes text editing lag caused by keydown/keyup events in Yoast SEO’s shortcode plugin JavaScript. This plugin replaces wp-seo-shortcode-plugin.js with a version that does not include the keydown bindings for Yoast SEO versions 3.0.5 – 3.1.2. For Yoast SEO versions 3.2+ it removes the keyup binding and reduces the loadShortcodes code run frequency from every 0.5 seconds to every 5 seconds for the onchange binding. The appearance of this issue depends on the number of plugins that create shortcodes that are installed on the site, use of page builders, client side cpu power and page length and complexity.

If your site has a lot of plugins that create shortcodes and you have long complicated pages that use a page builder and if you see noticeable typing lag with Yoast SEO installed and active, this plugin should correct it.

For Yoast SEO version 3.0.5 and later.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/typing-lag-fix-for-yoast-seo’ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins page directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ page in WordPress.
  3. There are no configuration settings.

Now, I know this is an old plugin that hasn't been updated in a while, however, as on one of my blogs Yoast is really bad when typing in the meta text (title, description), I figured I'd give it a go. After all, WordPress hasn't changed all that much when it comes to those two fields. Well, let's just say that when entering the text in the Description field with this plugin enabled, it took 10 seconds until the text actually appeared. Without it, it is about 6-7 seconds. Definitely no improvement. Uninstalled.

I do not understand why this problem exists for months without being corrected. This plugin significantly improves text entry, but it is still slow.
