Rank higher with Headway
Let’s face it, no matter how beautiful your website is, it won’t do any good unless you’re found. Fortunately, you can let Headway take care of this so you can do less worrying and focus on your website.
Headway features a robust suite of options for improved search engine optimization (SEO). For each post or page you create for your site, there are options you can set to improve that page’s search rankings, such as title tags and meta descriptions. At a higher level, there are site-wide options you can set, such as SEO templates for multiple pages of your website.
SEO Plugin Compatibility
Having Headway means you can use fewer plugins on your site for SEO purposes, while getting better results than most of them would give you, anyway. Users on our forums have commented on the improvements to their SEO because of Headway.
Even if you’ve already been using one of the more popular SEO plugins for your WordPress site, Headway will work with them instead of against them.
Powerful Per-Entry SEO Settings
Headway’s single-page SEO features are complete. You have the ability to set individual title tags separately from post or page headlines and write a meta description.
Because word counts for these items matter to search engines, Headway features a word count, so that as you type you can see how many words you’re writing and lets you know if you’ve gone over the limit.
There’s even a search results page preview, so you can see how your page would look in search engine results! It updates on the fly as you type.
For more advanced options, you can choose to have all links on the page set to “nofollow” or disallow the page from being archived or indexed at all.
Save Work With SEO Templates
Headway’s SEO Templates let you set site-wide SEO title and description options by reordering or adding your own text in with the same variables WordPress uses to generate page titles.
Recently, Google has stated they’re going to start factoring in link relationship information into their search rankings. Specifically, rel=author link relationships will factor more into search rankings than in the past. Headway takes this into account and automatically uses the rel=author attribute where needed.
