If you’re familiar with WordPress, you may have heard of the All in One SEO package. This plug-in has many features that allow a blogger to improve his SEO efficiency by taking advantage of common SEO features.
This guide looks at the basics of the SEO All in One package, how to install each attribute and what each attribute does.
Set: Instead of downloading the plug-in from the WordPress website, you can go to the WordPress plug-in menu and do a simple “All in One SEO” search. Or you can search for “popular” plugins, and it will be on the first page. Just install and activate. The plug-in will tell you to “activate” the plugin. Go back to the left column, and below you’ll see All in One SEO. Click on it to go to the plug-in page.
Plug-in status: you have to “activate” the plugin to make it work.
Headline at home: This is a headline that visitors will see when they enter your blog. You have to be very careful with the name. For search engines, it’s a good idea to put keywords in the title of your homepage. However, don’t invest too much. You have to consider your visitors and how they will use your headline.
For example, if you have a blog about plumbing guides, you might see a slight improvement in search engine traffic if the headline of your homepage was “Santechnical Paradise | | plumbers | plumbers Help with plumbing.” However, your visitors can see it as more than its only purpose: a guide. So creating a homepage headline, such as “Plumber’s Paradise | The plumbing guide” will resonate more with visitors.
Start Description: this is metadata placed in the code itself. You won’t see the description of the house right on the blog itself. Instead, you’ll see a description on the results page (SERP). Look below. You should limit the description to 160 characters or less, as search engines usually don’t display it anymore. Use it as a summary of your blog to explain what a user can find.
Host keywords: these are your key keywords related to your blog. Hopefully by then you’ll have a little research into the keywords you want to focus on in your niche. If you haven’t already, you can use Google’s keyword tool to learn more about keyword effectiveness and competition level.
Enter 8-10 keywords in the box through the comma.
Canonical names: leave it, don’t touch it, never look again. I’m laughing. If you are not familiar with canonization, I recommend leaving this box installed. This prevents duplicate content from appearing on your blog. By default, when you create a website or blog, there are two versions of your website (www, not www), each of which provides the same content. This double-does index online content. Search engines don’t like duplicate content. Therefore, you can be fined if not corrected.
WordPress fixes this for you by creating the default URL. If a user types your blog without using www, it will be redirected to the www page. In fact, if you leave this box installed, there is only one version of your blog that can be found and indexed.
Rewrite the headlines: WordPress, although good in many cases, doesn’t do well with SEO for headlines. If you check this box, you can rewrite the headlines on your own. The options under this box make WordPress rewrite your headlines, as shown.
Headline format: The SEO All in One package has organized the headlines the way they should be written. Leave these fields alone if you don’t want to change the format for a reason.
The rest of the options on this page should be left alone for any new WordPress user or SEO specialist. Once you’ve become familiar with the plug-in, you can try to change these “extended” options.
Separate posts: These settings can be found under each message in your blog’s Messages section. You process each of these sections in the same way as “Home Name,” “Description of the House” and “Key Words of the House.” The difference is that they are personalized for the publication you are about to publish.
