In my opinion, you should use Yoast plugin available in WordPress. That’s what TrustOrRun uses.
Using SEO by Yoast you can do following things:
- Add meta value for homepage
- Add meta value for single post
- Social SEO (Twitter Cards, Facebook Open Graph tags)
- Create sitemap file
- Edit robots.txt and .htaccess
- Control indexing of your blog
If you follow its guidelines and write proper titles, meta descriptions and all other SEO recommendation, you stand a good chance of ranking high in search engines.
