  4. Fill out the Tags in your Post


Are there any Settings?

There’s no need for settings. Just fill out Tags in your Post and there will be the Google-specific metatag “news_keywords” with these Post Tags in wp_head().

I can’t see a new metatag

Be sure to use wp_head(). If there are no Post Tags, there will be no new metatag.
