  • SEO title: Like the article title, the title should contain the focus keywords, not necessarily in the exact same text sequence, as long as the title contains the keywords.Because of the judgment of Chinese characters, sometimes Yoast cannot correctly judge that the keywords are included in the title, so just look at the warning message.
  • Pronouns: Pronouns are the URL of the article, try to use English, numbers, and have related meanings to keywords.
  • Meta description: The abstract above the Google search results is ideal if it also contains keywords.

The ideal number of Chinese characters for the title is 20-30 words.

The ideal number of Chinese characters described by Meta is 65~80 words.
