Hey everyone, so on each page and post there is the option to write in your own keywords.
How many are we allowed to put in there exactly? I know the all in one SEO does the wo

see you have had some good feedback, it has been suggested have keyword in title then in the first 140 characters or so, as long as it flows naturally and makes sense, too many would be seen as keyword stuffing and it will have an adverse effect on your site

It's said that it's good idea to keep your keywords at about 1% of your contents. Just mention them twice in a page or a post would be sufficient.

Hey everyone, so what's the difference exactly between these two boxes?

I think you are making mistake. There is no difference, those both seem to be meta tags while meta (SEO) description is missing. It must be totally opposite, otherwise Google will just copy any 160 characters and put as meta description. See examples in my post.

Write naturally after you introduce keyword in the title and in the first 145-160 characters, as LittleClaire suggest.
So use synonyms, this is known as Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI). I wrote a bit about it in my recent post http://justmythinking.com/how-to-improve-page-rank

Great article! Thank you so much! :)

Are you talking about keywords in your content? If so, then there is no limit to the amount, and the more the merrier. HOWEVER, they can't just be "thrown in" there ... they have to read fluently and logically within the syntax of the sentences. If they stick out as being just stuck in, to get keyword search attention, that is a red flag to Google and you will get your post/page demoted in Google (and other search engines) ranking.

If you are talking about meta keyword tags, the limit it about 3-5. DO NOT stuff this field or Google will drop your site from searches.

Meta keywords are useless and Google themselves have said they do not use them for search results. Neither does Bing, Yahoo, or probably any other major search engine.

Hey Boothe, they are referring to the Focus SEO Keyword. But I just don't know where that is located. Any idea?

Hey Christina
All in One SEO doesn't do your keywords for you. It pulls any tags you set into the keyword box, but that's nowhere near as powerful as adding your own naturally through the text.
I'm sure you already know this, but the general rule of thumb is one keyword in the title and then again in the first 140 characters for the meta description. Then you can add other secondary keywords in the rest of your text.
I always thought 'keyword stuffing' was reusing the same keyword over and over again. If you had, for instance, five keywords but used them twice each, in a post of 2,000 words, I can't see that being a problem. If you look in Google Webmaster Tools, you'll see your page is making impressions for keywords you weren't targeting, so you couldn't be penalised for keyword stuffing if you didn't even know you were using certain keywords.
That's my take on it, anyway.

Thank you! I didn't know I had to put tags into the keyword box...where is that located?

Hey, no worries :)

Sorry if I've confused you.. you don't need to worry about the keyword box, apparently it doesn't do anything. What I meant was that the tags you set for your post (underneath Categories in WP admin area, I think), get pulled into this box by All in One SEO.

However, it is located right at the very bottom of each page/post below your visual editor.

Attached are a couple of images so you can see what I mean.

Thanks Claire! I was referring to the bottom of each page and post, below Title and Description there is Keyword (comma separated). What is that used for and how many can I put in there. Because how does SEO all in one automatically know what keywords I incorporated into my content? Don't I need to place them somewhere?

Keyword meta tags are not used any longer, simply forget it. In the link I gave you there is a link to video of Matt Cutts from Google, I cannot give it here, it is not accepted by the system.

But do not mix this with meta description. Jovo

Hey
That box means and does nothing, according to Kyle in the training. Having your keywords within your content is what Google will pick up to show your website in search results.
C

Hi Claire! Some people spoke of the Focus Keyword SEO...have you used this?

I think what people mean is having one main keyword to focus on, rather than an SEO tool?

As long as your keyword research is strong and you go for low hanging fruit or long tail keywords (4+ words or more), and use them appropriately, you should have no problem ranking. I think SEO sounds complicated but actually boils down to being quite simple.

C

I got told 1 focus keyword is best, but some people will use 3 or 4. Too many and you're "keyword stuffing" which Google doesn't like. :)

One "focus" keyword is best - in fact you can ONLY have one focus keyword. But as far as other keywords goes, there is no limit, as long as they fit within the content naturally, without looking like they are just stuck in there for SEO attention.

I was referring to how many you type in manually to all in one SEO. I was advised not to use too many in there. :)

ONE focus keyword in SEO, that's it. Then make sure your focus keyword is scattered liberally throughout your post/article/page.

Thank you all! I don't mean SEO keywords within the content.
At the bottom of each page and post, below Title and Description there is Keyword (comma separated). This is what I was referrin to
How many can I type in there?

Yes, that's what I thought you asked. One focus keyword is best. :)

Thanks, Kathy! Because what I'm confused with is how does SEO all in one automatically know which keywords I incorporated into my content? Don't I need to put them somewhere?

Oh, those? as many as you want, but they are of not much significance. It is you Focus Keyword, and how many times it is used in your post/article/page that will get your SEO up higher.

Little Claire has your answer, you really don't need to put anything in there. :)

It's Google that gets the words from your content. it is confusing, I just follow the training and do as Kyle says, he's the expert!

Where is the SEO focus keyword box? Either I missed it in some the of the answers here or not. My last question I promise?

In your post scroll down and underneath you'll see it. Like this screenshot.

Oh boy...I'm confused. Because that's the box I meant but some were saying that that box does nothing...more confused than every lol

Okay so here's the deal: when I take a gander at my posts and pages, under SEO Title, SEO Description and SEO Keywords there is NOTHING there. It says No title, No Description and

See Shawn has explained this for you

The plug in sends this info out automatically, and it will not show on your pages or posts.
I fill mine out anyway becasue I want control over the descriptions. I do not care for how the plug in grabs them off of the content, so I write my own.

If that's true then shouldn't there be something in those tags?

I asked Kyle again in live chat last week, I'm not sure how it works, but he said you don't need to add anything. Some people do, but Kyle said it isn't needed. I asked him the same question when I first started as I was concerned about the same thing as you. :)

Thanks Kathy, but I'm still skeptical lol I'll take your word for it and look into it further.

I understand, that's why I've asked kyle numerous times! I switched to Yoast, find it much easier. :)

Read this training I posted:

Thank you for this! Where do I get this SEO Check?

Did you read the training? You have to have Wordpress SEO (Powered by Yoast) and then will have the SEO Check feature in you post/page publishing options section in your editor.

Yes I read it but I thought the SEO all in one was that one. Thanks!

My issue is I don't really know how to get it. I go to the Wordpress Plugins option and do a search for it and nothing comes up.

In dashboard/plugins/add new, in the search box, key in "WordPress Yoast SEO" ... it will show up, and you can activate it.

Thanks so much!

That is normal, all in one SEO does the work for you. :)

Have I missed the training session for Google Analytics? I can't find it within the certification classes but I see everyone talking about it.

Thanks everyone! I just added it and I have to say it's pretty darn discouraging to see absolutely NO ONE on my site...yikes. I have a lot of work to do.

Anytime I think. Just search for keyword Google Analytics then you will ithe lesson of how to install Google Analytics:)

I believe it is lesson 2 and 3 level 5 from the getting started course

Install it early because it takes a while to kick in

Don't sweat GA at this point. You won't be helped by this until your site has achieved some maturity.

I am of the opinion that you should wait to put in analytics after your site has achieved some level of consistency and maturity. All those stats, especially bounce rate, won't mean much until then. If you are still new just be careful they don't become a distraction for you. That said it is kinda cool to see people in your site in real time!

Thank you both so much! It just worried me that it is not included in the certification courses. It's so important so I don't understand why they would leave that out.

I thought I remember it being in the "Getting Started Here" training, it is in the Bootcamp training though.

The sooner the better, so install it now. It takes some time for Google to fetch and analyze your site, usually several days or a week, before you start getting accurate reports, so install it right away.
