When it comes to SEO there are a lot of things you need to consider to keep your website up to date. This plugin aims to help you with the technical side of On-Page SEO and provides a graphical user interface to generate a set of most commonly used meta tags, in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee.
Even though the term “tag” is not 100% correct in many places (some tags should correctly be called “elements” or “attributes”), people use this term because they tend to look for tags rather than the correct technical terms.

- MySQL version 5.6 or greater or MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
- WordPress version 5.3 or greater.
Automatic installation is the easiest option — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click “Add New.”
In the search field type “SEO Ready”, then click “Search Plugins.” Once you’ve found the plugin, you can view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description. Click “Install Now,” and WordPress will take it from there.
The manual installation method requires downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.
Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.
Where do I find the SEO panel for a post or page?
To find the SEO panel for a post/page, in the block editor screen, click the “Analytics” icon at the top right to open the SEO sidebar.
Which post types are supported?
Any (custom) post type that comes with the new block editor (Gutenberg) support would be able to have access to the SEO panel directly from the edit screen.
I don’t see the SEO panel on my edit screen! Why is that?
You likely need to enable the REST API for your post type before it will work. By default, the REST API parameter turned off when you register a custom post type. Therefore, you need to intentionally turn it ON in your code.
