Wordpress Posts and Keywords

by 1 comments
Kind of new with Wordpress and still learning the structure. One thing that I'm trying to figure out is if there are actually keywords that are being properly put in the post files so that search engines can pick them up. When I look at a post of mine I don't see the meta keywords when I do a "View Source" to view the code.

If I do a "View Source" on one of my Ezine Articles, you can see the Meta Tags and all of the proper info that you put in when you wrote the article...all in the proper format like:



<title>Your Title</title>

<meta name="description" content="Your Description. ">

<meta name="keywords" content="Your Keywords">

I don't see this with a Wordpress post even though I filled out the section for Keywords in the All In One SEO Pack. It's like this info doesn't get the post HTML code.

How do you get specific keywords in the source code for every individual post? If you can't do this, isn't it a big disadvantage not to have specific keywords for each individual post being available to search engines like the keywords are for EzineArticles?

Thanks for any input or suggestions. I'm probably just missing something easy here, but I haven't found it yet.

    WordPress does not contain meta tags by default. Plugins like All-In-One SEO Pack can be used to add them, although as you mention above they seem to be a little hit and miss.

    Honestly, if a search engine can't pick up your keywords out of your content, then chances are having them in your meta tags isn't going to help much. That said, you can create static metas in the header.php file of WP pretty must just as you would in an HTML file -- right below the title tag. It's not as comprehensive as having dynamic kw but it's guaranteed to function.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
