The Snippet Preview: what it means and how to use it.

12 May, 2014 by Joost de Valk – 37 Comments

Our WordPress SEO plugin has come with a snippet preview from day 1. This snippet preview mimics what the current page would look like in the search results, by our best “guesstimation”. In this post I’ll explain what the different sections are made up of, and what you can do to optimize those. I’ll also explain why the snippet might not always match what you see in the search results.

Note that the screenshots in this post are made using the latest version of WordPress SEO as of writing, version 1.5.3. So if you think “this is different from what I’m seeing”: update.
