If you are looking for customising your website SEO by using SEO Tab of “Elegant Themes” then this article can provide a great help. In this article, we are going to explain about how we can define Meta tag, Meta description, Meta title and Meta keywords using SEO Tab.
Follow the Simple Steps for Setting Meta Title, Meta Description using SEO Tab:
Firstly open your site Dashboard then go to Divi >> Theme Option >> SEO Tab. Here in this SEO Tab, we have to make certain changes and for that please follow simple steps given below:
- SEO Tab contains three sub tabs as “Homepage SEO”, “Single Post Page SEO” and “Index Page SEO”. In this step, we are going to customise and briefly describe the different options of “Homepage SEO” sub Tab. The first option available here is “Enable Custom Title”, we can enable this option if we want to set Custom title for our site homepage, Otherwise if this option is not enabled, then by default the title will be the combination of blog name and blog description. Then after this next options are “meta description” and “meta keywords”, we can enable these options if we want to set custom description and custom keywords for our site homepage.
- On scrolling a little bit we can see an option to enable or disable “Canonical URL’s”, now a question arises in your mind what are “Canonical URL’s”, these are basically helpful in preventing duplicate content there are many URL’s on our website which represents single page so, this option helps us to set an official URL for all these duplicate URL’s. On scrolling down we can see some of the options as “Homepage custom title”, “Homepage meta description” and “Homepage custom keywords” if we have already enabled these options then we can add title, description and keyword in these fields. After this, we get options for setting “Title Auto Generation Method”, if we have “disabled custom title” option. And in last we can set character for separating “Blog Name” and it’s “Post title”
- Now moving to the next sub-tab of SEO Tab, which is “Single Post Page SEO”, In this tab we have the options as “Enable Custom Title”, “Enable Custom Description”, “Enable Custom” and “Enable Canonical URL’s” for a single post or page, we need to enable them if we want to set custom title, custom keyword and meta description for each of the page or post. On scrolling down we get an option as “Custom Field Name to be used for title”,“Custom Field Name to be used for description” and “Custom Field Name to be used for keywords”, we can use these fields for defining title, description and keyword for each of post or page. After this we get options for setting “Method for Auto-Generation method for title” and “Character to separate the blog name and Post Title”, if we had already disabled “Custom Title” option, both of these options helps us to choose how the individual post or page title generated.
- Now moving to the last sub-tab of “SEO” Tab, here in this sub-tab, we can see the option for enabling or disabling the “Canonical URL’s”, if we enable the “Enable canonical URL’s” option then it is very much helpful in preventing duplicate content to be indexed, as we have described above, but it does this only for indexed pages. After this another option is of enabling or disabling “Meta Description”, if we enable it then we can display meta description for archives and categories, and this meta description is one which we have mention while editing or creating category or archive in wp-admin.On scrolling a bit more we can see the next options as “Choose title autogeneration method”, we can choose the method for auto-generated title as well as we can also choose the character which separates “Blog name” and “Post Title”, this title works, if we have disabled “Custom Title” option.
How to Set Custom Title and Custom Description for a Page or Post:
Now in this part, we are going to describe how we can set Custom Title, Custom Description and Custom Keyword for a post or page. For this, we need to click on “Edit” post or page and then look for the “Custom Fields” option. Whenever we want to add custom fields at first time on any page or post then we can add Custom Title, Custom Description and Custom Keyword for a Page or Post by using these options as shown in the below image.
And then if we want to add custom fields to the next page, then we can add the custom fields on the first page we can directly select them from the drop-down menu as shown in the below image. We can also add any of the new custom fields on the second page using the “ADD Custom Field”. Please refer the below image for more.
