Setting the SEO Title and Description Format for Pages

Did you know that All in One SEO can automatically generate SEO titles and descriptions for your pages?

This can be a huge timesaver if you have lots of pages.

This article will help you with easy to follow steps to automatically generate SEO titles and descriptions based on formats you can create.

To get started, click on Search Appearance in the All in One SEO menu and then click on the Content Types tab.

The Preview shows an example of how your pages may look in search results based on the Page Title and Meta Description formats you set.

Setting the Page SEO Title Format

To set the SEO title format that will be used to automatically generate SEO titles for your pages, click on one of our smart tags shown above the Page Title field.

Adding a smart tag to the Page Title field

You can also type the hash character ( # ) in the field to display a list of available tags you can choose from.

You can also enter text in the Page Title field or combine text with the smart tags.

Whatever you set in the Page Title will apply to all your pages. However, you can override this in the Edit Page screen where you’ll see a Page Title field in the AIOSEO Settings section.

Setting the Page SEO Description Format

You can set the SEO description format that will be used to automatically generate SEO descriptions for your pages by using the Meta Description field.

This field works in the same way as the Page Title field. You can select from one of the smart tags displayed above the field, or type the hash character ( # ) in the field to display a list of available tags you can choose from.

That’s all! You’ve now set the SEO title and description formats for your pages.
