Version 1.0 notes

Be aware that if you have manually added tags to posts or pages prior to installing this plugin, there is a chance of non-compliant nested
tags being created. For example, if in a post you have created the following html code – <b>We are SEO professionals.</b> and you create
“SEO” as a keyword within this plugin and select it to have a ‘b’ tag, the following output will result – <b>We are <b>SEO</b> professionals.</b>
We hope to have this issue corrected in future versions.

You can use the built in installer and upgrader, or you can install the plugin manually.

1. After activating the Keyword Tag Wrapper plugin, I am receiving ‘nested’ warning messages when validating my html code.

If you have already wrapped a tag around a specific keyword utilizing the default WordPress content editor, there is a possibility that this will occur. We are working on a fix for this issue for future versions. To solve this problem, in your WordPress Admin CMS, go to Pages : Edit : Your Page Name and remove the pre-existing tag that is causing the conflict.

2. After activating the Keyword Tag Wrapper plugin, where do I edit the settings or add new keywords to be bolded?

In your WordPress Admin CMS, go to Settings : SEO Tag Keywords. Sorry, “Keyword Tag Wrapper” was too long and took up 2 lines on the menu.

3. By default, I have the choice of surrounding a keyword with the following tags: strong,b,i,em; which one is best?

We currently recommend using strong as the first choice. Keep in mind to also include your keywords in your page titles, meta keywords, and meta descriptions to maximize your SEO results. It is also important not to have too many words that are wrapped in the strong tag on a single page, keep them limited and focused.
