It’s very important to use meta tags for indexing your website by search engines. So you definitely should know how to add and edit them on every page you have. In this article, I’m going to show you how to add Meta Title and Meta Description on Home, Catalog, Product and CMS pages.
At first, let’s figure out what is a purpose of these meta tags:
Meta Title – is a unique name of the certain page, that is shown on Search Engine Result Pages and then in the page browser tab. It should be created with care and not exceed 70 characters length.
Meta Description – is a 160 character description, that summarizes a page’s content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched for phrase is contained in the description.
Meta Keywords are no longer used in search engines, so we won’t talk about them.
Let’s get started!
In order to edit meta tags on Homepage just follow the path:
Configure section -> Shop parameters -> SEO & URLs
Here in the list please find index page and click Edit.
