Enhanced SEO metadata module for the SilverStripe framework.
This is the core metadata module for the graphiques-digitale/silverstripe-seo-* module collection.
It enables enhanced title features, character set selection, canonical URLs and an enhanced fall-back description using
Title inspired by: http://moz.com/learn/seo/title-tag
It is intended to be used with it's siblings:
These are all optional and fragmented from the alpha version
Graphiques-Digitale/SSSEO, which is now redundant.
The whole module collection is based largely on 18 Meta Tags Every Webpage Should Have in 2013.
Also, a good overview: 5 tips for SEO with Silverstripe 3.
composer require graphiques-digitale/silverstripe-seo-metadata
silverstripe-seo-metadatain the SilverStripe webroot
/silverstripe-seo-metadata/_config/app.yml for configuration.
Metadata is changed globally via
/admin/settings/ under the Metadata tab.
And also locally, per page, under their Metadata tab.
Depending on your configuration, the general idea is to replace all header content relating to metadata with
$Metadata() just below the opening
<head> tag and
<% base_tag %> include, e.g.:
<head> <% base_tag %> $Metadata() <!-- further includes ~ viewport, etc. --> </head>
This will output something along the lines of:
<head> <base href="http://dev.seo.silverstripe.org/"><!--[if lte IE 6]></base><![endif]--> <!-- SEO --> <!-- Metadata --> <meta charset="UTF-8" /> <link rel="canonical" href="http://dev.seo.silverstripe.org/" /> <title>Your Site Name | Home - your tagline here</title> <meta name="description" content="Welcome to SilverStripe! This is the default home page. You can edit this page by opening the CMS. You can now access the developer documentation, or begin the tutorials." /> <!-- END SEO --> <!-- further includes ~ viewport, etc. --> </head>
Please check the
documentation folder for how to extend classes and more.
