Step 1 ) Looking back at the previous post image, you can see the following color coded bar.

The following image shows you three areas that you need to focus on. The TG, DG and I which shows colors that are not green. Green which is what you want to see if it is possible. There might be sometimes where you might not be able to achieve the Green color but that is okay as well.

Color Coded Tags

  • TG – Title Generated = Amber color display “Needs checking and some improvement”
  • DG – Description Generated = Red color display “Needs checking and improvement”
  • I – Index = Red color display “Needs checking and improvement”
  • F – Follow = Green color display “All good no improvement needed”

Step 4 ) The following image Post SEO Settings located at the end of your post or page, shows you the following information about the Custom Post Title and Custom Post Description. You can see the following numbers 36 Okay for the Title and 37 Bad for the Description. These numbers lets you know they are not set up at the recommended level. This means you need to focus in this area to improve the length for each heading or title.

Custom Post Title

  • If you count the following text title WordPress Test | Lightbox Video Test it will add to 36 characters in length which is below the recommended length of between 50 to 55 characters.

Custom Post Description

  • If you count the following text Description Lightbox Video Test on WordPress test it adds to 37 characters in length which is below the recommended length of between 145 and 155 characters.
