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

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 Taxonomies tab.

Setting the Tag SEO Title Format

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

Adding a smart tag to the Tag 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 Tag Title field or combine text with the smart tags.

Whatever you set in the Tag Title will apply to all your tags. However, you can override this in the Edit Tag screen where you’ll see a Tag Title field in the AIOSEO Settings section. This feature is available in All in One SEO Pro only

Setting the Tag SEO Description Format

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

This field works in the same way as the Tag 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.
