Upon activating All in One SEO the first thing we see is a setup wizard which will take you through the following steps:
- Import data from your current plugins.
- Which category best describes your website? Adjust the Home Page Title and the Home Page Meta Description.
- Additional Site Information. Sets up information for Person or Organization. Add Social profiles.
- Which SEO features do you want to enable? Various features you can enable.
- Search Appearance. Shows a Google Snippet Preview, choose site under construction or Live Site, etc.
- Setup Site Analyzer + Smart Recommendations. (Email address field.)
- Enter you AISEO License Key (check if using Pro version).
Exiting the setup a “How to Get Started” video is seen. Closing that one sees the Dashboard.
I believe as I went through the various settings that suddenly OptinMonster and MonsterInsights was installed and activated on the site. I am not sure how that happened.
