SEO Tools

Optimize your site for search engines by taking advantage of our SEO tools.

For general features and FAQs, please see our information page.

This feature is available to all users for free since Jetpack version 9.5. If you are seeing upgrade prompts, please make sure the Jetpack plugin is up to date!

Enabling SEO Tools

The SEO Tools can be enabled from your WordPress.com dashboard or directly from within WP Admin.

From WordPress.com go to Tools → Marketing → Traffic and activate the “Enable SEO Tools to optimize your site for search engines” option under the “Search engine optimization” section.

From WP Admin go to Jetpack → Settings → Traffic and activate the “Customize your SEO settings” option under the “Search engine optimization” section. Once enabled, the various settings will be available for editing directly from the WP Admin dashboard.

Custom Title Formats

To help improve your search page ranking, you can customize how your content titles appear for your site by going to WordPress.com Tools → Marketing → Traffic Page Title Structure. You can reorder items such as ‘Site Name’ and ‘Tagline’, and also add custom separators between the items.

Front Page Meta Description

Meta descriptions are a general overview of the contents of your site. Search engines sometimes use this information to determine the site’s relevance for specific searches. This meta description setting applies to your site’s front page only.

They have limited space on search result pages — about 160 characters (although search engines may display more based on the search query). You can use this tool from Portent to calculate and preview your description.

Social Previews

Before you publish your new post or page, you can use the Social Previews feature to preview what it will look like on search engines and social media.
