Yes, that's Buddy in the lower right hand corner...

I wrote a post about a month or so ago about the elusive Keyword Box that is mentioned in one of the main Courses here at WA. I made this quick tutorial to show you how to enable the Keyword Box.

The Keyword Box is in your WordPress Dashboard.

Hover over All In One SEO.

Click on General Settings.

Scroll down to Home Page Settings. This is where the Keyword Box should be.

Scroll all the way down to the bottom. There you will see Keyword Settings.

Click Enabled.

Just a tad bit further, click Update Options button.

After this is done, the page should automatically be back at the top. Scroll down to Home Page Settings. Is it there? Third one down? It is? Yes!

That's it!

Note: This is my first video of any kind. I was NERVOUS!

UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that a few of you may not know what a Keyword Box is used for or may have forgotten. So, to the best of my ability, here is an explanation:

The Keyword Box is used for putting keywords that describe your website. Notice how it says 'Home Keywords'? Yup, that is what it is there for: Keyword description of your site. And, to help with your rankings on Google or other search engines. This is where it gets sticky:

Some people believe filling out this box doesn't affect your Google rankings. Others do. Me? I agree with a different site that says 'there is no harm adding a few keywords to each post'. And, yes, you can add them to each post and/or page if you want too. I do.

Great job Brendie!

Thanks for sharing that training. I am a middle of the roader when it comes to enabling that feature. I currently do not have it enabled, but now I know what to do if I get ready to enable it.
Thanks,
Kathy

Good to tell people about this. It is not enabled automatically anymore, I saw that on my latest website

I wrote a post about it about a month ago when I couldn't find it, and then found Keyword Settings when I scrolled all the way down to save my settings.
Since now I can do training I can do videos! It is easier to explain this way.

Hi Brendie, good video and instructions, just one thing, it maybe a good idea to explain what a keyword box is and what it does.... some people may not know/remember....just a thought.

or a link to your previous post!

My previous post doesn't explain what it is either. Just tells how to enable it. I wasn't able to provide actual training at the time.
I updated this training.

Well, considering I don't like to be in front of the camera, I am surprised I did this. Even though it was screen capture and voice. It was...interesting...definitely went outside my comfort zone.
Nice to see you again. I recognized you from the other Training. lol
