Configuring Home Page Options
All In One helps the optimization of your blog in two ways:-
1)By allowing you to configure the individual meta tags of each post that you write
2)By allowing you to configure the meta data of your blog’s home page.
The first thing you need to do once the plugin is installed is to go to Settings >> All In One SEO Pack and configure the home page options.
Here you simply enter the Page title, and description you’d like to appear if your home page was found in the search engine listings. You might be trying to make your blog home page rank for a very general keyword, in which case you want that keyword to be in the blog title preferably as the first word. You also want another part of your blog title to be an interesting clickable statement about your content.
Your blog description should simply explain in 20-40 words what your site is about again including your main keyword just once and being interesting and appealing to a reader of that niche.
After your meta tags are set, you’ll find some other important options at the bottom of the All in One SEO Options. These are:
Use Categories for META keywords:
I leave this box Unticked, as I like to insert my own keywords for each post and don’t necessarily want the category name to be one of them.
Use noindex for Categories:
This is vital for your site’s SEO. Ticking this box adds some code to your category index page so that it doesn’t get indexed by the search engines. Why is that good? Because your category pages contain snippets of your posts that already exist at other places in your site. Using Noindex on these pages means that only one version of your post content will be indexed and you can avoid duplicate content penalties.
Use noindex for Archives:
This is the same as above but for your archive pages. I keep this ticked too.
Use noindex for Tag Archives:
And also tick this for the same reason as above
After this you can hit Update Options and have the settings for the home page of your blog all configured.
The main benefit of All In One is that when you click to write a new post, and scroll down below the post content, you’ll see a field where you can enter the Title, Description And Keywords for each post you write.
This allows you to completely control all of the meta tags for each piece of content you make through wordpress – a feature that’s not available in WP by default.
This part must be done with each post you write and fortunately is easy to do. How you should fill in each field looks like:
This is easiest. All you need to do here is copy the blog title you should have already written for the post above, and paste it into the Title field. Easy.
Your meta description for the post only needs to be 20-40 words containing the main keyword you’re trying to target. As it will be the description that appears when this post gets found in the search engines, it should also be interesting and appealing to anyone who finds it in the Search Engine so they’ll click on it.
