  16. Hi Mitul,

    Your article is really helpful, thanks for writing. I am looking forward to read more articles in future. Keep writing!!! cheers.

  17. “Meta Keywords” and “Keyword Density” are two different things.
    The Meta Keyword Tag is no longer read by Google or Bing..
    And use of it can hurt you as it is one of the clues they use to determine if a site is spamming..
    “Keyword Density” is the repetition of words in all areas of your site including the meta title and description.

  18. Bing does not use Meta keywords..
    Using “Meta Keywords” has potential to hurt you as it is one of the clues search engines use to determine if a site is spamming..

    • I think Meta keyword Doesn’t Hurt, If hurt then My site not in 1st Search result…Yea you ryt Google and bing stop using metakeyword but They even don’t say if you are use metakeyword then your site spam list or hurt ranking….I saw that wpbeginner also use metakeywods…

  19. which one is best all in one seo or yoast seo plugin ?

  20. Hi
    When you are using All in one SEO what do you do with the Tags box on a wordpress post? Do you leave blank or use the same keywords as in the keywords box on SEO??


    • Use Different keywords in both box. if you are confusing in both box so I must say leave Meta Keyword box empty Because Search engine Doesn’t consider Meta Keywords But use Tags its effective.

    Can i use All in one SEO for meta Tag data as i am concern about laser keywords research and optimization.

  25. thx Man, but You explain this option is wrong
    Pagination Sitemap Index: disable this option because if pagination page index so it will cause duplicate content Issue.
    Paginate Sitemap Indexes mean that you can Split long sitemaps into separate files.
