    Hello Friends,
    I've use WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin to optimize my website. But, I can't understand this line "The keyword doesn't appear in the first paragraph of the copy, make sure the topic is clear immediately.". How can i solve it?

    I wouldn't worry about it too much dude. Just use the plugin to make your titles and descriptions look pretty, and you focus on adding good content.

    Thanks :) Is it important to make a content more than 300 words?

    By pressing Enter you create a new paragraph. By pressing Shift + Enter you create a line break.
    Make sure the word is inside the paragragh meaning it's inside the paragraph prior to the first enter.

    If you still have issues check out the html code and put the keyword/keyword phrase on the very first <p>keyword somewhere inside here</p>

    Google doesn't count the amount of words in your articles. Just say what needs to be said, and keep doing that. :)

    I really don't think that is anything to worry about, if you just make sure your content is unique and of a high quality then you have nothing to worry about at all!

    It's not a significant issue. Simply make sure all your contents are 100% unique and keyword-focused and you are fine.

    You should have an <h1> with your keyword at the head of your post anyway.

    I am always a bit confused about h1 tags. In wordpress, is the main title of post h1 by default?

    If you are thinking so, than it probably is. I do it manually because I swear to God by two plugins: Yoast SEO and SEO Pressor. I keep both of them green and in many cases, I get satisfactory rankings with on page seo only... so yeah. Powerful stuff.
