Quick question on Sitemap priority
I've got a WP blog post that's optimized for a keyword (all green in Yoast). When I search for that keyword in Google, I show up on page 4 for my /blog page (which just contains a preview of that post along with others) but not for my actual post.
The /blog page isn't optimized for the keyword at all. My guess as to what is happening is my default XML sitemap has /blog as 60% priority and posts as 20% and Google is only going to show one result from my site and maybe priority trumps the keyword optimization.
Am I off here? Anyone experience anything similar or know what's up? Figured I'd ask the pros before I started tweaking stuff.
