Whenever I'm posting articles, I use site content and then publish to site. I noticed at the bottom part of the post, while I'm editing in WP to add images, that there's information I have to fill for description and keywords. Do I have to fill this up every time I'm making a post? Although I believe so, because the preview snippet only shows the title. it's not mentioned in the training.

Should I add in every post?

Appreciate your feedback!


Thanks,

Jenni

I would complete the Title and Description for sure. Keep in mind that when you scroll down initially, the Title field appears to be populated, but it is usually grayed out. If you go to Appearance > Posts and/or Appearance > Pages, do you see a Title there in SEO Title? If not, it's because that field was actually grayed out in the page/post. So it's always good to enter that Title and Description while in the page/post and Publish - or Save as Draft if you're not ready to publish. Hope this helps! :-)

Meta Keywords are obsolete so don't bother with those but meta description is really good to do - make is catchy and interesting that people will be interested to click through to your site =)
Good luck - SF

How well do you need traffic and quickly. The quicker, the more you want Google to search and pull. In that case you cant put in descriptions enough!

Hi Jenniline!
Go through this training here.
You should focus on the SEO description as this is the snippet the search engines will display in the search results.

The SEO title is automatically pulled from your post title which should already be optimized for good results. David
