SEOPressor On-Page Settings (META Settings, Canonical, 301 Redirect, Robot Rules)
What’s next after you have improved your SEO score by using SEOPressor Progressive LSI Keywords Engine?
META tags play an important role in SEO because they are mostly read by Google crawlers to help determine what a page is about. Let’s see how we can optimize META tags on SEOPressor.
Step 1: In your blog post, go to the Meta tab.
Meta tags are the key points that your article is talking about and helps rank it in search engine results pages.
For example, our blog title is “Social Media Writing Guide For Marketers”. I have to make sure that my Meta Description describes it, so that readers know what they are clicking on.
Step 2: Key in your Title Tag and Meta Description.
You can also see how many characters are there for your Title and Meta Description.
Keep your Title under 55 characters, and Meta Description no more than 155 characters.
Step 3: Once you’re done, you can click the ‘Preview‘ button to see how your Title Tag and Meta Description displays on Google.
This is what the Preview looks like:
What is Canonical URL?
Canonical URL is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues by specifying your “canonical” or “preferred” version of a web page as part of SEO.
In this case, I’ll fill up my URL to prevent it from getting duplicated.

The 301 Redirect URL is where you key in the location you want your blog post to redirect to.
For example, we’d like people to redirect our current blog post to http://seopressor.com/blog/ instead of the original URL. This is how to do it:
So whenever your visitors click on my blog post, they will automatically be directed to http://seopressor.com/blog/ instead.
Robot Rules control how you want Google crawlers to crawl your website.
For example, if you don’t want them to follow the link that you have provided in your content, then simply tick the no-follow box.
Once you’re done, click ‘Update‘.
By now, you should be able to optimize your META Settings.
