Plugin for Keywords and Description

  • http://www.uberdose.com/journal/archives/2004/10/02/keywords-and-description-meta-tags-for-wordpress-xfish_meta/
    This is a plugin that adds support for the two HTML metas ‘keywords’ and ‘description’. Copy and paste the following code to a file called xfish_meta.php and put it in your wp-content/plugins directory, then enable it in the plugins section.
    You can give each post custom fields named ‘keywords’ and ‘description’. The keywords one is a list of keywords for that post separated by commas without any trailing or leading ones, description consists of a few sentences (finish the description with some punctuation mark, like a full stop).
    If the requested page consists of several posts (like the main index of your blog), all the available keywords and descriptions get pasted together into the respective meta directive.

  • Why isn’t the plugin in use on your own blogging site?

    Because I’m still testing it on another smaller site that has a far more narrower topic.

    Your plugin isn’t properly discovered by WP… are you working on a bugfix?

    Can you give me more details about what doesn’t work? I’m using it on a live site without any problems. I will double check the version I put online right now …

    Just tested it again, no problems. What will definitely cause problems if you try “Save as” with the xfish_meta.phps, this will wreak havoc with the plugin page.
    I updated the plugin site with a hint that it must be copy and pasted. If you’re still having problems let me know.

    Does anyone have an idea how to disable this funcionality:

    If the requested page consists of several posts (like the main index of your blog), all the available keywords and descriptions get pasted together into the respective meta directive.

    My main blog page now has huge meta tags for description and keyword, search engines will most definitely see this as spam…

    I really don’t know a lot about php, but wouldn’t it be possible to turn off the plugin for certain pages and return a default meta description and keywords?

    SE’s really don’t read meta past a certain point. Thats not the type of “spam” that should worry you. You can’t SEO a blog like a normal site anyway.

    They read meta.
    Morover, they use it in “snippets”!

    You think, that you can not SEO blog… Hm… Why so pessimistic? 😉
