  1. Make sure you are on the ‘General’ Tab of the ‘WordPress SEO by Yoast’ section
  2. Fill in the Focus keyword. The focus keyword, which is used to show you how it would help your search results. It helps you to see how often you have used your focus keyword in your content. It is not always necessary to have your focus keyword everywhere. This is more of a guideline.
  3. Add the SEO Title. By default the Title of the Post or Page is taken as the SEO Title. However you might want to add a little more description to the SEO title than the default title as this will not be visible to visitors of your website. Remember the title should not be more than 70 characters.
  4. Add the Meta description. The Meta description is what appears as snippet in Google Search. Remember the meta description should be limited to 156 characters.
