Chris Takakura's Wordpress guide

Wordpress doesn’t come with settings to input standard SEO tactics such as meta keywords and meta descriptions. For the longest time I have wondered as to why this was the case, but fortunately, there are many plugins that can help you input standard SEO tactics. I have been a long user of a plugin called “All in One SEO”, and it has served me pretty well with my own websites as well as client websites. This article covers how to use All in One SEO to the fullest in the “Add New Posts” section of Wordpress. This article does not cover how to configure the plugin settings.

The latest media manager in Wordpress has become quite powerful, in which it allows you to manage your image, edit your image, set “alt” tags for SEO, add captions, add alignment and more. It is always a good practice to implement basic SEO tactics for your images as much as your posts in Wordpress as it can be a difference between search engines like Google finding your images and then your articles, to Google not finding it at all. For a little second of your time, you can make a difference easily.
