Keywords and Description tags??? (9 posts)

    I'm currently using WP 2.0, with the pool theme. My question is this: Is there any way to somehow get unique keywords listed on each separate post page?

    I'm trying to think of SEO, and wondered if this would make a difference in getting more traffic. Wasn't sure if there was a plugin for this or not.

    There is somewhere a plugin that makes keywords{?) based on your post's text... though the gurus say it doesn't really matter for SEO.

    This sorta-guru agrees with the ones moshu refers to, but here's a couple plugin options on meta keywords:

    For descriptions (since you mention them in your title), I'll point to mine:

    so is it a bad idea then to incorporate universal keywords and description tag in the index.php file for the template I am using?

    In WP that wouldn't be in the index.php* - but header.php of your theme. And those "incorporated" there would show on every single blog webpage.
    Nobody said it's a bad idea. We said: it is NOT necessary for SEO.

    Yes, you are right. I said index, I meant header. Thanks for clarifying it's need, or lack thereof.

    I wouldn't call it bad, as it can't hurt anything by having them. It's that any benefits gained from keywords is nearing the point of being immeasurable these days. Meta description tags are only a little less so. But having them on your blog is not *wrong*. Just not as important as some SEO'ers claim.

    It's nice to have Kaf around: he can nicely expand my laconic replies :)

    As long as "Expander" doesn't appear under my name... :/
