Keywordselection

One of the most important features of Search123 is the possibility to select one or more keywords on your own, which are used to select relevant Keywords. You can select certain keywords for every post or page in WordPress. The plugin uses the WordPress special fields to do this. The very popular plugin "All-In-One-SEO" is using those special fields, too. The plugin can use the article tags as keywords. If there is more than one tag, one tag is randomly selected.

The Search123 plugin reads the contents of the All-In-One-SEO plugin keyword field and uses this information to select relevant ads. If you use a large number or very different keywords, it might be possible that Search123 could not select relevant ads and will display nothing. In this case, you can add an additional special field called "s123keywords" and provide another keywords for your post. The keywords in "s123keywords" will be used just for your ads. The keywords of the All-In-One-SEO plugin will still be used for your SEO purposes.

Sequence for keywordselection: Article tags -> special field "s123keywords" -> All in One SEO Pack keywords -> title/category name
