Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » keywords

  • Hi there!
    Just in the process of switching over from All in one SEO to WordPress SEO… Where is the field for keywords? In ALL in one SEO there was a separate field on each page to put these in; in the WordPress SEO the only keyword field I find is the “Focus Keyword”. Any ideas?
    Also, in All in one SEO there was a MAIN settings page where you could fill in all the main tags for the whole site. Is there something like this here?
    Many thanks!

  • Keywords are no longer needed in meta information for a page. They’ve long been seen as manipulative data and they let all your competition know what you’re trying to optimize for. Google came out a while back and said they were no longer going to weight results on keywords.

    But other search engines are still looking for this meta tag.
    Or you can try to mislead your competition 🙂 LOL

    Go to WordPress SEO Titles and Meta – General. tick the checkbox “Use meta keywords tag?”

    If you want to use autogenerated keywords set up the meta keyword template patterns in Meta keywords template:

    These are the suggested patterns for posts/pages – %%tag%% or %%category%%
