Post Titles with Yoast SEO

Yoast SEO is an excellent tool for WordPress sites to attain SEO goals and getting those post titles correct is important.  To get the Yoast SEO plugin, simply download it from the plugins respository at WordPress.org.Yoast SEO Page and Post Titles

To set up post titles (and page titles) in Yoast SEO, here are the steps you need to follow.

Based on your internal settings you can make several modifications to show what you want displayed. Here are three different scenarios that you can use to set up your post and page titles in SEO by Yoast:

  • On the left hand side menu navigate to SEO > Titles and Meta > Homepage – You may want to add a Title Separator ( Simple as that) ( TEST IT)
  • Next navigate to Post Types note what the code is for Post Type

    Might be something like this:
    %%title%% %%page%% %%sep%% %%sitename%%

    You way want to edit it to something like this ( if you make the Change TEST IT)
    %%title%% – %%sitename%%

  • A 3rd option in WordPress is that you might have to make a simple edit from left hand side bar >> SETTING > GENERAL and potentially add a Space or – in from of the Site Title you provide.
    Example currently My Website
    Change to: – My Website
    (Test it)
  • HOW TO >>TEST IT

    The main thing is after you make a change and save, check the actual physical blog post (example) by hovering your mouse over the Top Browser Tab to see what the Title Tag will display ( that is what Google will index)
