    Hello!
    Keywords are important words or phrases that people can search for if they are looking for the content you publish. The meta description provides a short description of your page or post.

    The keywords and description are HTML meta tags, and they are included in the title of your site. WordPress SEO plugins make this very easy for you to add them from your WordPress admin to every post and page on your site.

    Search engines don’t accurately share how much weight they should assign to keywords or descriptions. However, it is quite clear that they are important and will help you rank higher.

    Some SEO experts believe that keywords are not important at all. Even Google says they don’t give meaning to meta keywords. However, other SEO experts disagree and advise users to keep adding meta keywords.

    On the other hand, the meta description is extremely important because you can use it to grab the user’s attention.

    Yoast SEO comes with built-in support for description and keywords. However, the keywords feature is disabled by default.

    First of all, you will need to enable it in order to use keywords on your WordPress site.

    You need to click on “Enabled” under the “Advanced settings pages” option and then click on the Save changes button to save the changes.

    The Yoast SEO settings page will now reload and you should be able to see many more options in the SEO menu.

    Go to the SEO »Titles & Meta page and then click on the Other tab.

    Now you need to click on “Enabled” in the “Use meta keywords tag?” Section, and then click on the Save changes button.

    You have successfully enabled keyword support in the Yoast SEO WordPress plugin. Now you can add keywords in posts and pages.

    First of all, you need to change the post or page to add keywords and meta descriptions.

    Scroll down a bit below the post editor to the ‘Yoast SEO’ meta box.

    You will see your site title and auto-generated description as a snippet. Below you will see the Meta Keywords field.

    You need to enter keywords separated by commas. You should not use more than 10 keywords or phrases.

    Make sure you only use keywords that are relevant to your content and that you’ve already used those keywords or phrases in your article.

    You need to click on the “Edit Snippet” button and enter a description for your site. This will turn the editable area snippet into a preview.

    Make sure you use your main keywords at least once in your description.

    After that, click on the “Close snippet editor” button when you’re done. You will be able to see your finished snippet description in a preview at this time.

    Congratulations, you have successfully added keywords and descriptions to your WordPress post. You can now save or publish your post or page.

    Adding keywords and meta description for the home page
    You can also add keywords and description for your WordPress site’s homepage. Here’s how to do it using the Yoast SEO plugin.

    Go to the SEO »Titles & Metas page and then click on the “Homepage” tab. This is where you can add a custom title, description and meta keywords for your website’s homepage.

    Don’t forget to click on the Save Changes button to save your settings.

    You can also add keywords and descriptions for your category pages and archive tags.

    First, you need to visit the Posts »Categories page. Specify the category you want to change and then click on the “Change” link.

    This will open the category editor page to scroll down to the Yoast SEO meta box.

    Now you need to click on the Edit Snippet button and enter your own category description.

    After that, you need to click on the “Settings” button to enter the keywords that will be used for this page of the archive category.
