This is where we can set up keywords, title and description for homepage of our website. If you have done research already and have the title for homepage, simply copy paste the title, description and the keywords. Use comma if you have multiple keywords to input.
Next section is “Keyword Settings”:
You can enable and disable “using keywords” in your entire website. Categorizing keywords is not necessary. Search engines do not care if keywords are categorized or not.
