Not every website needs table of content. You should remove it from your rating system for this reason alone 🙂 Just saying!


  1. Hello, Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    Having a table of contents is essential to make the post navigation easier and that’s the reason we add this test in Rank Math.

    Please note that if you don’t want to use a table of contents you can safely ignore that test, as is true with any other, you don’t need to follow the guidelines entirely and should instead give priority to your SEO strategy. Those guidelines are just in place to help guide people that are not so familiar with SEO.

    Plus, you can also disable any of the tests from running on your page by applying the following filter with the test name:

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

  2. I agree – there are many types of sites that don’t need a TOC. I only use them on pillar content. Not everyone wants to be a developer to turn it off, either.

  3. SEO is not a 100% score. It’s as simple as that. Thinking for yourself is much more important. Don’t rely on a plugin…

  4. I agree it should be removed along with number in the title. They are not necessary ranking factors and are often not appropriate. Even if I know to ignore them, I still have to explain to clients why the score isn’t 100.

  5. Dear RankMath……these are very valid points and good feedback for your plugin….not *every* test is appropriate for *every* site, and it’s very difficult to explain to clients who are not SEO-savvy why they should ignore a low score. Few webmasters are capable of adding code to filter which tests should be applied on an individual site basis, so adding a dashboard option to disable some tests would be a HUGE reason to use RM over other SEO plugins. It’s also perfectly reasonable to add this as a Pro feature, please consider it instead of arguing why the test score can/should be ignored.
