The principal PHP file in "Yoast SEO Cleaner" v. 1.0.1 is loaded by WordPress automatically on each request
It is important to fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("clean-yoast-seo-cache.php" instead of "yoast-seo-cleaner.php")
  • Text Domain: You no longer need to specify the text domain since WordPress 4.6; it must be the same as the plugin slug
