SEO Options for WordPress
If you are using WordPress for the first time you will notice what options you have from the Dashboard.
The information you read or find online about SEO all tell you to use meta-tags on your website, I’m not sure why but they all suggest the same thing.
If you are creating a website for the first time and using WordPress you are probably wonder where do I put that information in WordPress.
Unless other Blogs and CMSs WordPress does not have fields to enter in meta-tags for the page title, page description and page keywords. You can find plugins that allow you to enter in this information but a native WordPress install will not have an area to add this information.
You may ask yourself why, everyone is telling me to use meta-tags and how important they are for SEO. Well the sad truth is they aren’t nearly as crucial as they would have you belief and it would seem the developers for WordPress would agree.
Researching SEO resources and tactics can really be over whelming and like anything else you will find good advice, bad advice, out dated advice and worse of all no shortage of disinformation.
Here is the theory, meta-tags are formatted information that reside in what is called the head of the file. This means the information is not actually displayed on the page. It is for this reason that meta-tags have been so abused that they are now not nearly as important. If you are going to use meta-tags you need to use them correctly or you will be penalized by the search engines.
Optimizing your WordPress website takes time and planning. Be careful of what you do and what advise you follow.
