Image Sitemap Integration is Here w/ Yoast SEO & NextGEN Gallery

NextGEN Gallery was recently updated to version 2.1.44 and in it came a few awesome changes.  Because we use NextGEN Gallery and NextGEN Pro for Photocrati Pro customers, this update is highly relevant.

We have a bunch of UI changes in NextGEN Gallery we’re making, like a new Add Gallery button. But we’re slowly migrating to it as to not confuse the 1.3 million users of NextGEN Gallery.

We’re also adding Yoast SEO integration, the API for our upcoming Lightroom plugin and new placeholder watermarks.

  1. Love how you have integrated the sitemap and the gallery. It will make my life easier:-) Thanks!

  2. Hello,

    I would have a question regarding Yoast SEO :

    I activated all features as explained in video.

    Now in Yoast, I set to “dont show in search results” all ngg_tags created by NextGEN Gallery.

    Will this affect my SEO when I insert a gallery on my SEO optimized pages ?

    1. The ngg_tags thing is created by Yoast. That’s not something we’re doing in NextGEN Gallery. We suggest setting that to noindex.

  3. Hi,
    Does Yoast SEO automatically add NextGen photos to sitemaps? I’m told the two are integrated but I can’t figure out if there is a setting I should use.
