Improve your WordPress SEO: Write better content and have a fully optimized WordPress site using the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast.
You've set up a template for your titles, but things get added to it when they're output? You can do two things: either enable "Force rewrite titles" on the SEO -> Titles settings page, or go into your header.php and change the title element to just this:
<title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
Check whether your theme's
header.php file contains a call to wp_head().
There are two possible issues with a meta description:
Disable the clean permalinks feature on the SEO -> Permalinks settings page.
It does! You'll need an add-on module for that though, which you can download from the News SEO module homepage!
It's not a secret that the author of this plugin, Joost de Valk, aka Yoast, doesn't really like All In One SEO Pack. The main reason is that All in One SEO pack has a default option for auto generating meta descriptions that is actually making it harder for people to rank well in a lot of cases, giving them a false sense of security.
Once you'll start using this plugin, you won't ask that question anymore, you'll just ask yourself "why does anyone still use All In One SEO"? There's several things this plugin does better: it has a snippet preview in the write post screen that'll help you optimize your titles, meta descriptions and copy instantly while working on your posts and pages.
Also, other than All In One SEO Pack, this plugin has a completely working canonical implementation for all pages within your site, whereas the one in All In One SEO pack is broken, it was originally written by the author of this plugin, so he knows. It comes with XML Sitemaps, an XML News sitemap module, loads and loads of robots meta options and other options to improve your SEO.
Yes, of course! Here are the rewrite rules you'll need:
rewrite ^/sitemap_index\.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 last; rewrite ^/([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?\.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 last;
Requires: 3.3 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.5.1
