Did you know there is an easy way to dramatically improve your WordPress blog’s search rankings? Try installing the All in One SEO Pack, one of the most popular WordPress plugins.
- Prevents duplicate content issues
- Rewrites page titles to be more search engine-friendly.
- Generates dynamic meta tags for permalink pages. A short snippet from the article is used for the meta description, and the post’s tags are used for the keywords.
- Allows you to manually override the meta tags and title tag on a post-by-post basis as well.
These things can really help out your rankings. The <title> tag is a major point of focus for Google and other search engines, and it’s the part of a result that searchers pay the most attention to. It pays to have good titles.
Meta tags may not have the weight they once did, but they are still considered, and are worth paying attention to all the same.
As with all matters of SEO, your mileage will vary. This plugin will definitely do more good than harm though.
