All in One SEO Pack – You Need This!
July 17, 2007
Lately I have told myself I need to get up off my butt and do some work on this blog. I’ve always been a lazy person, and I know that just won’t do. So I’m going to try to work harder.
Well, last night I got all freaked out over search engine optimization. It’s not something I’ve ever focused on a whole lot, even thought I know it’s extremely important.
I’ve been installing a lot of plugins these past couple days, as you might have noticed, so I went ahead and got a plugin that is perfect for my search engine optimization.
That plugin is the All in One SEO Pack. It absolutely perfect. After you have it installed and activated you just go to your WordPress dashboard then go to the Options tab, and then there is a sub-tab for All In One SEO.
It lets you type your home page’s title, your home description, and your home keywords. On the ‘write post’ page when you’re creating a post it lets you select the title for the post page and its keywords. You can set the All In One SEO to rewrite titles and make them more optimized for the search engines, you can select an option to use the category of the post as one of its META keywords, and you can use the category description as a title if you want to.
You can select for the search engines not to be able to index category or archive pages to avoid duplicate content. You can even have this plugin autogenerate descriptions. This is one of the best plugins out there, and if you don’t have it, you need to download it now. Search engine optimization is so important to every serious blogger and webmaster, and I should have been working harder at it sooner. But at least I am now. :)
Oh yes, and I have started tagging all my future posts for Technorati, and I will also go back and tag some of my important ones. If you’re not working on your SEO, now’s the time to start!
