    Good plugIn, but you don’t have a tips for insert code
    In automatic mode ?

    It will automatically insert the code in the header. You simply need to activate it.

    I think what you meant to say is that it automatically takes the categories for an entry and inserts them as keywords.

    I’m loving this! Thanks!

    Where do I put that code, the code which is in the FAQ?

  5. QuickOnlineTips says:

    Ed – that code goes within the HEAD tags if you want to add custom tags on the homepage.

    What am I missing? Where do I download this plugin? The link on WordPress points here, the link on this page points back to WordPress… ?

  7. QuickOnlineTips says:

    The download link is on the top right side of the wordpress page.

    I downloaded, installed and activated! Thunderbirds are go. However, you say “check source code for META,” so I’m like where and how do I do that? What does the code look like that I’m looking for – how do I know it’s working? Thanks!

    Sylvia – Once you have opened your site in the browser, Click View>Page Source on top of browser pane. A new page will reveal the html code of your page. Find the tags
    meta name=”keywords” content=”keyword1, keyword2″

    Sadly, I thought of that…I looked and looked for the code you describe, but it’s not there. My plugins page lists the plugin and it’s active. Is there a more recent version of this plugin perhaps?
