The title tag should be considered the first thing your potential visitors will see about your page in a search engine results pages (SERPs).

  1. Thanks for the great tool.

    I need to manually disable Meta Description as it’s being duplicated by another tool which I don’t want to uninstall.

    If I delete the meta description content, it defaults the text at the beginning of the page. How can I manually prevent Easy SEO from generating the meta description?

    • Hi Mark! There is an SEO Description section on each page, you have to click into the “edit page/post” area and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find it. If you leave the SEO description blank in that area your other meta source should take precedence. If you’re using multiple SEO plugin you should consider deactivating one as only one SEO plugin is recommended per WordPress site.

  2. Title and meta description is important as it guides the users on what and where to click to visit a website and including keyword is also vital.

    • No it’s not because the it guides users where to clock to visit a website, we already have them in my website; it’s time to funnel them where I want them,
