Using the Smart Tags in Titles and Descriptions

You may have noticed that All in One SEO has a variety of predefined tags that you can use in the Title and Description fields throughout the plugin.

You’ll see these shown above the fields and when you click on the View all tags links.

These tags make it easy for you to add information to your titles and descriptions, as well as in other features within the plugin.

For example, you can use them to display the title of your post as part of your SEO title, or add the name of the author of your post, or add the current date.

To view a list of tags available for a specific field, click on the View all tags link or type # in the field. A list of available tags will appear, and a description of each tag is shown below it. You can select a tag by clicking on it.
