Secrets to All in One SEO Pack for On Page Blog Search Engine Optimization

All in One SEO Pack for On Page Search Engine Optimization ImageI’m back with the second part of our All in One SEO Pack training for Beginner Bloggers.  Today, we’re talking about on page blog SEO, meaning the optimization of your individual blog posts for the search engines.

I’ve written about this topic a few times before so if you’re interested in more information on blog seo for your posts and pages, the following links will be helpful to you.

Oh, and there is also a Blog SEO Cheat Sheet as a free download in the second post!  (No Opt in Required!)

However, I’ve only every touched on using the All in One SEO Pack for on page optimization, so today’s post will finish the two part series on this helpful free plugin.

Using the All in One SEO Pack Plugin for Your Blog Posts

All in One SEO Blog Post Optimization ImageAll in One SEO: Title

  • Enter a title that is 60 characters or less into the All in One SEO.  Some people say you can go up to 70 characters.
  • If possible, put your keywords in the first 1-4 words of your title.
  • This title will be displayed at the top of the browser screen, browser tab, in the tweets from your social media sharing buttons, and on the search engines so make sure it appeals to humans as well as contains your main keywords or keyword phrase for the blog post.

All in One SEO: Description

  • Enter a description that is 160 characters or less.  I have found that 140-150 characters works best for me so that my description doesn’t get cut off.  (I also place this description in the excerpt for my blog post)
  • Write it to include your main keywords and to appeal to the humans you wish to attract with it.  Show how you’re going to solve a problem or ease a pain when they read your post.

All in One SEO: Keywords

  • I usually enter the main keyword I’m shooting for in the post as well as a couple of variations for the keyword that appear in the post as well.
  • Separate them with a comma.
  • I use the Google keyword tool, Google wonder wheel, or Google suggest for ideas of related keywords to include.

All in One SEO: Title Atribute

  • All in One SEO-Title Atribute ImageThis is the little bit of text that pops up when you hold your mouse over one of the pages on your blog.  It will allow you to have a short menu label, but offer more description to your readers as to what they’ll find on that page.  Hover over the About Heather tab at the top of my blog for an example.  It should look like this image.

All in One SEO: Menu Label

  • This is the text that will actually show up on your page tab on your blog. (The “ABOUT HEATHER” text you see in the image above.

So I hope this short tutorial was helpful for you. I would like to point out that many themes like Athalupa, Thesis, ElegantThemes, and have their own fields for adding SEO to your blog.  Please check your theme to see if SEO is build in. 🙂

  1. Hey Heather,

    Great All in One SEO pack tutorial that will definitely help beginner bloggers with On-Page SEO.

    Thanks for sharing.

    All the best,

  2. I have used ALL in One SEO Pack on a couple of blogs. When I recently created my latest blog with the Thesis platform AIO kinda went out the window because of the control that Thesis has. I think the most WP themes are leaning more towards making their websites more SEO intuitive. But AIOSEO is a great plugin and it gets the job done NO Doubt. Great post Heather!

  3. Heather,
    I also am using that plug-in and really like it!
    Thanks for sharing it and explaining how it works.

    It definitely is very useful for us newbies.


  4. Great post Heather. I use the All in One SEO plugin and love it, such a great blogger tool. I’ll be sure to share this post 🙂

  5. Hi Heather,

    I have used this plug in for what seems like forever and even though I am now using the Headway theme which has it’s own SEO function I have still not switched over. I guess when you find something that works it is not that easy to let it go.

    I could probably do with checking all my settings though so I’ll definitely bookmark this post to use when I do that soon. Thank you.


  6. So far, I only heavy utilize the description part of AIO and it already give a good result. Rarely, I also use the title part if needs different title between real post and search engine.

  7. Another great Post Heahter!

    BTW, do you know of a way to change the title attribute for the ‘home’ page. I’d love to find a way to hover over ‘Home’ and have it display the title of my blog.

    I could delve into the code but was wondering if anyone has found an easier way.

    My Best,

  8. Good and nice information about SEO.Especially tips about the title has attracted me a lot.

  9. Hey Heather,

    Great beginner tutorial on the All in One SEO pack. It is definitely a helpful free plugin. I normally only utilize the All in One SEO: Keywords, but I think I’m going to start making use of all of them. Thanks for sharing your insights.

  10. Great post Heather! Thanks for the tips, it’s indeed very helpful..

  11. Thanks Heather for the great info. I had installed this plugin a while back but was never quite sure how to set it up. After reading your post I have the page portion and keywords set up. I do have a question though. Do I need to manually enter the post title, keywords, etc. into All In One every time I write a blog post? Thanks again.

      Hi Gary,

      Thanks for the comment! I’m glad my post could help you.

      Yes, when you’re writing your blog posts you will have to enter your post title, description and keywords into All In One. There will be an area on your blog post edit screen if you scroll down, to add all that information.

      Thanks for commenting! 🙂


  12. hi ! Great tool .. very interesting.

  13. I actually have my AIO plugin configured so I don’t have to use any of the AIO plugin box in the post editor, instead I have AIO SEO configured to use my WordPress tags as keywords, my WordPress excerpt as description and I usually write a good title without any need to rewrite. This saves me time by not having to fill out duplicate fields all the time.

    • Hey Justin,

      How can we do that in All in ONE pack so that it will automatically take the post tags as keywords

  14. Great info about how to use this plugin Heather!

    It’s one thing as a beginner to know which plugins to install in your blog, but quite another to understand exactly how to use them to maximum effect!

    This will certainly help anyone using it to get the most out of All-in-One-SEO.

    All the best,

  15. Hey Heather,

    Good one tried to click on above links for other SEO articles but was getting errors it seems you fixed now and what is the link for google wonder wheel and google suggest??????

    • Hi Neeraj!

      You can access the Google suggest just by going to Google’s home page. When you start typing it, Google will just suggest options for you.

      The Google wonder wheel is available in the left column of Google.

      I’m adding an image to the post to help you if you want to come back and check it out. 🙂

      Thanks for your comment!


      • Ohk I thought it as another service from google yup it is indeed by the name autocompleter even google is hiring autocompleters who are real good in typing anyways not getting the option of wonder wheels in search result tried changing the ip as well might be its country dependent
