Yoast SEO

With the plugin installed and activated you would want to take a look under SEO, Dashobard, Features and enable the Advanced Settings Pages for what we show in this video.

Under Titles & Metas you will go to the Other tab and enable the Use meta keywords tag. This will add a new meta keywords area for you to edit on your posts and pages.

Each keyword should be separated by a comma and don’t use more than ten keywords or phrases.

If you set a specific page then you could set keywords and meta for it.
