Some time ago I wrote an article about SEO and the ways to improve your blog visibility in the search engines. In the article I wrote about the choice I made to use a very good plugin called “All-in-one-SEO-pack” by Uberdose that lets your blog be found by search engines in an easier way. This has the consequence to improve the quantity of people visiting your blog. I still confirm this last point. Readers do have increased, so has the clickrate in Google Adsense. Today a Web Talk’s reader has written to me to help him solve something about the plugin I mentioned above. Let’s read his email together.

 

Hello Francesco,
I saw your questions and post on: http://wp.uberdose.com/2007/03/24/all-in-one-seo-pack/ I had a title question, if you would be able to answer it.I have All in One SEO Pack installed on my site and the description and keywords are good. The home page has its proper keywords and description. My question is: how do I insert the titles of the pages? Do I have to do that manually?
Can I not insert that on the All in One plugin of the blog post?
My web site: www.ConnectionCare.com
Thanks so much,
john

 

I hope you don’t mind if I left your website address (if you want I can remove it). After reading your email and visiting your website a doubt aroused. All-in-one-SEO pack has been made to work out-of-the-box. So, if something doesn’t work maybe there must be some issue on your blog template or some incompatibility with other plugins you installed on WordPress. Anyway, titles on the page get rewritten automatically and you should see the result on your browser’s window bar. If you don’t see anything go to All-in-one-SEO options and make sure that “Rewrite Titles” has been checked. By the way, if you click on “Rewrite Titles” you should see a very complete description that I report here:

“Note that this is all about the title tag. This is what you see in your browser’s window title bar. This is NOT visible on a page, only in the window title bar and of course in the source. If set, all page, post, category, search and archive page titles get rewritten. You can specify the format for most of them. For example: The default templates puts the title tag of posts like this: “Blog Archive >> Blog Name >> Post Title” (maybe I’ve overdone slightly). This is far from optimal. With the default post title format, Rewrite Title rewrites this to “Post Title | Blog Name”. If you have manually defined a title (in one of the text fields for All in One SEO Plugin input) this will become the title of your post in the format string.”

Just by checking this option all your pages and posts should be rewritten automatically, and in your browser’s windows bar you should see the title your wrote for your page or post. Of course if you want to further tweak your titles you have to go to every single page and post (on the administrator side) and edit them manually. At the bottom of the editor you should see a kind of bar with the name of the plugin, click on it. You should now be able to see the fields where you can add whatever you want. I personally think it is not advisable to rewrite everything. Just let the plugin do the work for you!

If you still don’t manage to see your posts/pages title on your browser’s window title bar, take into consideration that something is wrong. A test you can do is to change your template blog. Try the default one and see if something has changed. If it does, then it is the template, if not contact Uberdose directly here. He is very kind and tends to reply to everybody! Please let me know if you have managed to solve your issue

    Thanks Francesco, nice web site by the way. I don’t mind if you keep up my
    url, no problem.

    I think I figured it out. I deleted the line from the header
    template and, once put back in, they were working fine, I think.

    Thanks so much, actually your article helped to explain quite a bit.

    Thanks,
    John
