Also known as “META TAGS”, every SEO expert in the world knows how to add META tags but most don’t know how to change them in bulk.
Yoast is by far the best way to change META tags in bulk.
SEO audits always discover META errors…
They will also warn you about “missing META tags” or “duplicate META tags”…
Heck, sometimes you just need to refresh your titles and descriptions to something more enticing aka clickbait.
Instead of going into each and every blog post and page to fix the problem… (spending hours) There’s a faster way to make edits.
Why Would I want to update my meta titles and descriptions?
It’s a great element to test. For example, if you’re not receiving many clicks on your blog post, you may want to experiment by making the title and description more enticing. You could add some sales copy that triggers your target market. Second, you might want to update it if you included a previous year in the title. Time to update the year to make it look current and update your content.
So How do I quickly change my Meta Titles and Descriptions?
Allow me to introduce you to a free solution. If you have the famous free YOAST SEO plugin, you already have this META tag tool. However, most people have not discovered this feature when using the plug-in. It’s the quickest way to add/update your meta titles and descriptions all listed accordingly.
