Thesis Theme SEO Features

You get complete power to control all your SEO regarding a single post or whole of your site in one place. Over here I will be discussing about those features.
If you are using it, then I don’t think that you will need any wordpress plugin for your blog optimization.
Document Head Settings :
This is one of unique feature of thesis theme to construct title tags automatically for every post and pages. But you can always override this option by adding custom title tags into your post and pages. One more feature available over there is append site name to pages titles.
This feature enables you to add your website or blog-name beside the name of your post or pages. Example is yourdomain.com/thesis-theme-seo is your post link but the post title will be THESIS THEME SEO – YOURDOMAIN. You can choose the different types of separator.
Robot.txt custom setup :
This feature allows you to add noindex tags to different and unnecessary types of navigation links. For example : sub pages, author pages, year pages, month pages. You can easily add no-index tags to them by just clicking on the boxes beside to them.
This feature will help you to manage your website or blogs SEO easily and without any confusion. This feature will prevent the search engine spiders to index those pages and they won’t appear on search results.
Add No-follow Tags :
We already know what role does dofollow tags play in SEO. Learn more here .. DOFOLLOW AND NOFOLLOW. Thesis theme gives unique ability to add nofollow tags to different types of navigation links, since they are of no use until you think so. You can again add these tags by just clicking on boxes beside to the titles.
No-archive Tags :
This will prevent open directories from indexing your blog or website into their directory. I will personally suggest not to use them. We know almost all directories have good ranks ( pagerank ) and getting any backlink from them is no harm, but their may be cases of content theft. But you can use ping tools for example pingomatic for telling search engines that you are the real author of that article if it belongs to you.
Canonical URL : Canonicalization is the process of picking up the best URL for any domain. More info .. url canonicalization
