SEO Meta Data Import and Export:

Note:

  • We’ve taken the extra step of importing SEO settings across these plugins, ensuring seamless integration and functionality. However, it’s essential to verify that your required plugin is activated.
  • If your preferred SEO plugin isn’t currently activated, simply deactivate any active plugin and activate your desired one. For instance, if Yoast SEO is active but you wish to work with All-in-One SEO, deactivate Yoast SEO and activate All-in-One SEO instead.

Exporting SEO Meta Data:

To begin the export process, switch to the Ultimate CSV Importer plugin within your WordPress dashboard. Once in the plugin, navigate to the export section. Here, you’ll find options to select the specific data you want to export, including posts, pages, custom posts, or SEO data.
