    Red face Does using Accordion and Tabbed Content affect SEO?

    Hello, i just built my web with wordpress and to make the content more clean i used an accordion to divide the texts. According to YOAST, the green light is on in my pages, but i think it is not working. See images

    I don't speak/read Spanish, so I don't understand the photo you posted. Most here don't worry about Yoast's red/amber/green lights. Most only use it to edit metadata, nofollows etc.

    Why do you think this is not working?

    Not sure what you mean in regards to the Yoast stuff, but to answer the question in the thread title Google have said it's fine to put content behind tabs: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/...d-tabs/178020/

    I tested this a while ago to confirm that google did indeed index tabbed content. Sure enough the content could be found which was encouraging.
    My only concern really is if you put H1 tags within hidden content if it carries the same weight as a H! tag that is visible on page load, bit more difficult to test that one but its my belief it would not be as strong. I have nothing to back that up I am afraid just gut feeling.
