Next, there’s a dropdown option for choosing whether the site is from an Organization or Personal use. According to your site, you can choose the option. You can also choose None for disabling this feature.

But, it’s better to redirect to the parent post, so you can leave this setting as it’s by default. 

You can also remove /category/ and /product-category/ from your permalinks. This will shorten the URLs and improve your SEO. For that, tick on the checkboxes provided.

Metabox and Column Options

C. Using SEOPress – How to optimize your Posts/Page for SEO?

Now, we’ll show you how to use SEOPress for maintaining the SEO of your posts and pages in this review. It contains tons of features for optimizing your content and web pages. 

For the content, you can solve the problems and suggestions that are being detected in your articles. Whereas for the web pages, there are options to improve the off-page SEO. Off-page SEO means the activities taken outside of your site for better ranking.

To know more about the features in detail, let’s jump directly to each of them.

1. Optimizing Blog’s On-Page SEO

On-page SEO is the practice of optimizing the web page content for users and search engines. It includes optimizing your tags, content, internal links, and more. For that, SEOPress contains certain options that you need to fill and accordingly optimize.

There are two sections in SEOPress for optimizing on-page SEO. They are Title settings and Content analysis. So, let’s go through each of them in detail.

Title Settings

SEOPress Title Settings
Title Settings

The title settings in the SEO meta box contain 3 major components. They are:

Title

First, you need to fill in the title of the article. Note that the title must be kept as per the limit set by SEOPress. Plus, make sure your title has the target keyword for getting better SEO results. 

Instead of typing the title yourself, you can also click the buttons to add the content to your title. Such as post title, site title, separator, etc.

Meta Description

The meta description provides a summary of your webpage when it appears on search engine results. That’s why you need to add the meta description so that your visitors know what the page is about. 

You should write the meta description very carefully. First of all, it should be within the limitation of the word size. Next, it must contain the target keyword that you’ve used for your article. 

Moreover, you can also use the available options to form the meta description. Like post excerpt, separator, tagline, etc. 

Google Snippet Preview

The Google snippet preview provides a preview of how your page will look in the Google search results. You can get the preview for mobile and desktop devices. 

By default, you’re getting a preview of mobile devices. You just need to disable the given option to get the preview of the desktop screen instead of mobile.

Content Analysis

There’s a Content Analysis section that’s responsible for analyzing your content and getting better on-page SEO. Here, there are two major things included. They are entering your target keywords and then receiving the analysis of your content based on those keywords.

Target keyword or keyphrase is the search term that you want your post or page to be ranked for. Using it, the search engines and your users can find your article on the search results. 

SEOPress allows you to keep an unlimited number of target keywords in an article even in its free version.

Target Keyword SEOPress
Target Keyword

To add all your target keywords, you need to fill them in the textbox available. Here, you can also remove the unnecessary keywords. After you’re finalized with your target keywords, you need to click on the ‘Analyze my content’ button to start your content analysis.

Below it, you’ll see the result of your content analysis like in Should be improved section. Here, you’ll get feedback on the overall content that’s required to improve the SEO. The feedback is also shown into different categories based on the factor to improve.

Overall, the feedback can be denoted good or bad based on the color they have. They are:

  • Red-colored ones are the bad things that you need to definitely improve on your content.
  • Orange-colored ones are the suggestions that you may want to improve.
  • Green-colored ones are the good things about your content.
Content Analysis in SEOPress
Content Analysis

There are several factors according to which your content is analyzed. Some of the important factors include headings, meta description, keyword in the permalink, keyword density, and more.

Every time you optimize your content according to these results, you need to click on Refresh analysis. After which, it points out the analysis result as per the updated content.


2. Social

For carrying out off-page SEO, SEOPress seamlessly integrates with popular social media platforms. These platforms include Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. This enables your site preview to be optimized in such platforms as well.

In the Social section, you can fill the content for your site preview on Facebook and Twitter. Here, you’re able to fill in the title, description, thumbnail, and upload an image. Accordingly, you get to see the preview of your post on those platforms.

Social Options in SEOPress

Other social media platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram, Whatsapp, and Pinterest use the same social metadata as Facebook. And, if you don’t define the Twitter cards tags, then it will be the same for Twitter as well.


3. Advanced

The Advanced section contains the options for meta robot settings. Here, you can manage the robots individually for a post or a page. In the WordPress dashboard, there’s also an Advanced tab in the Title & Metas section. There you can configure these settings for your entire website.

If you use the meta robots then the search engines get certain instructions. The instructions are about how you’d like them to crawl or index parts of your site. For that, you can tick the checkboxes for the parameters given to set your meta robots (like noindex, nofollow). 

After that, don’t forget to update the post or page to save the changes.

Note that, these settings on individual posts and pages will bypass the global settings on the dashboard. Plus, when you don’t set meta robots, then the default will be index, follow.

Advanced Options in SEOPress

Apart from meta robot settings, the Advanced section also allows you to add the canonical URL for a post/page. Keeping a canonical URL will allow the search engines to index this preferred URL than other URLs available.

Moreover, you can also select a primary category of the post or page. This will be used for the %category% permalink. When there are multiple categories, then it can also be used for the breadcrumbs.


4. Redirection

Redirection offers you to create and manage redirects for the broken links. The main reason to perform redirection is to avoid confusion for search engines and users.

Redirection Options in SEOPress

D. Important Settings and Features

The configuration wizard itself contains lots of settings that you can easily set for your website. However, you can also configure them from the SEO menu in the dashboard. Apart from those options, there are some more important settings and features that need to be pointed out in this SEOPress review.

So, let’s get to know those settings and features of SEOPress. 

1. XML and HTML Sitemaps

A sitemap is a web page that contains a list of all the contents of a website. This helps both the users and search engines to navigate or find content about the website. There are two common types of sitemap: XML and HTML. 

XML sitemaps are for the search engines to get information about your site. This sitemap contains details like the last updated date or how frequently you modify your site. Plus, it includes the links to all the posts and pages. That’s how search engines can distinguish what to include or update in the search results.

Whereas, HTML sitemap enables your users to easily navigate your site. By the links provided on the sitemap, they’re able to find the required information.

So, you need to create your custom XML and HTML sitemaps for the users and search engines. It’ll help to improve the crawling of your site by robots and get better indexing in the search results.

How to Configure XML and HTML Sitemap Settings?

There are a series of steps that you need to do for creating sitemaps. Firstly, go to the XML – HTML Sitemap sub-menu in the SEO menu of your WordPress dashboard.

Then, click on the Add New option in the Pages menu of your WordPress dashboard. Here, write the title of the page as ‘Sitemap’. After that, paste the shortcode in the text area for the content of the page. Click on the Publish button and then preview the HTML sitemap page.
