  • Resolved consultant1027


    The analysis is saying my keyword isn’t in the Post Title but is in the Meta Title. First off, I’m editing a Page, not a Post. Second, isn’t the Meta Title that actual page title that Google reads? So who cares if the keyword is in the “Post Title” unless it’s inferring therefore it’s not in the default URL (permalink) or is the “Post Title” referring to something else that DOES matter for SEO? Or is it considering the “Post Title” is the first thing it finds in between H1 tags?

    Post title = H1 (if your theme is correctly coded) = important for SEO
    Meta title <title> = important for SEO too

    We are talking about Post title because in HTML5 your content is an article.
    Moreover, in WordPress, everything is considered Post from a database point of view. There is no difference.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I already have H1 coded, but I’m wondering how the Google Search Engine Bot would pick up the WordPress Page/Post Title, through what tags does it read these?

    I searched the entire source code of the page for the WordPress Page Title and it’s nowhere in the source code. I thought, maybe it’s being used in the sitemap, nope. So I fail to see how the internal WordPress Post/Page title has any SEO significant if that data can’t be access by Googlebot?
