WordPress, SEO, and Social Media Marketing

Use Categories for META Keywords

In addition to the keywords that you set, you have the opportunity to append the categories a single post is in. Presumably, if you use categories for your blog post (as opposed to as a structural element that many people have begun to use), these keywords can be appended into the meta keywords field as well. This can help further define the context and relevancy to the search engines.

Dynamically Generate Keywords for Posts Page

In most cases, the Dynamically Generate Keywords for Posts Page option is not required. For some setups, however, the normal flow of posts is on a separate page. This is often the case when a WordPress install is used as a content management system and the bulk of the layout more closely resembles a traditional site. The “blog” is often designated to a separate area of the site and uses a custom page template. For situations like this, the All in One SEO plugin provides the opportunity to dynamically populate the meta keywords tag on this page with the keywords you have chosen.

Noindex Options

The All in One SEO plugin also provides three options for eliminating certain pages from being indexed by the search engine. These options are useful in avoiding duplicate content penalties but can also be overkill. Therefore, it is completely optional to designate archives, tag archives, and category archives as “noindex” links. When the search engine spiders encounter these links, the content behind them will not be indexed.

Autogenerate Descriptions

You have the option of having the All in One SEO plugin automatically generate meta description tags for all non-home pages. Usually, these meta description tags are generated with the post excerpt, something the author can predefine or WordPress can automatically generate. In the event that the plugin cannot find an excerpt, selecting this option enables it to automatically create a description that fits the blog post.

Additional Headers

Not necessarily relevant to SEO, but possibly helpful nonetheless, the three Additional Headers options enable you to insert extra text or tags into the header. An example of this might be JavaScript snippets from third-party sites, etc…

About the Author:

I am a loving father, & husband. I am a computer enthusiast. I have used and enjoyed computers since I was young and I enjoy teaching young minds how to code, because it teaches them how to think. Today with YouTube, and social media garbage our youth are losing the ability to think on their own and solve problems. I believe this is a serious epidemic as kids today dont understand that technology is a tool. This tool is being abused, and its underlying effects are taking its toll on kids behaviour, and learning.
