Meta Data and Title Keywords

When a new post is crawled by Google and other search engines, the meta data and post title are key to make sure your post is categorized correctly in search results. The Compose page has a Keywords field where you can add keywords and short phrases separated by commas that best describe your post. Additionally, the Excerpt field can be utilized to add a short description of the post. (If you don't include an Excerpt, the first paragraph will be used as the meta description.)

Meta Keywords and Description

Also, the Post Title and Permalink should also include keywords that describe your post to make it clear to a potential visitor what the post is about. Learn more.
