Feature Request: Ablity to edit SEO title, description & keywords in Quick Edit (8 posts)

    Hi Yoast. This isn't a bug, but a feature request. It would be very useful if I was able to edit the SEO title, meta description & keywords (if enabled) from the Quick Edit section when bulk editing posts - like you can tags and keywords. Having a preview of the title and description is nice (keywords too would be even nicer), but would be great to be able to actually edit quickly too.

    Any way to get this feature in a new release?

    Let me know the likelihood... if not, probably going to end up paying our web developer to code it up for us since it would make bulk managing content that much more efficient.

    Just wanted to add a vote for this feature as well. A way to edit SEO Title and Focus Keywords in Quick Edit would be a real time saver.

    Thanks for this great plugin!

    I just built this if anyone wants it and I made it universal to work with your choice of meta keys or other meta title plugins. The current version is packaged to work with Yoast and supports both Meta Titles and Meta Descriptions with a clean a$$ look. I'm making some adjustments to the plugin version right now and will submit my plugin to the community when it is ready. The plugin version will allow you to change the meta keys from the admin and will also allow you to add other custom meta to the quick edit section. Simple, clean, effective and very useful for SEOs.

    Also forgot to mention, it will not include keywords. If you're an SEO guru you should not be using meta keyword, they're waste of time and have no value.

    Hi SmashArtist, thanks I would be happy to have it.
    It is not contained in Yoast SEO, but an extra extension?

    Correct, it's a plugin that I developed to support Yoast in quick edit mode.
    I also recently developed an even better plugin that allows you to edit your Yoast meta data from the front end. It's also mobile friendly to work on iPhone and Android devices, great for on the go changes. You can check it out and download my Front-end SEO Editor if you'd like.
    Let me know what you think and I'll send you a copy of my quick edit plugin that works with Yoast.

    A related comment, which may be a bug report: I noticed that when I use Quick Edit to change categories on a post, the default SEO title appears to get deleted.
