Meta Data

Your store is loaded with places where you can enter keyword-rich meta data to improve the way search engines index your site. While in the process of setting up your store, you might have entered preliminary meta data, with the intention of finishing it later. Over time, you can fine-tune the meta data in your site to target the buying patterns and preferences of your customers.

Meta Title

The meta title appears in the title bar and tab of your browser, and search results listings. The meta title should be unique to the page, and less than 70 characters in length.

Meta Keywords

Although most search engines ignore meta keywords, many sites continue to use them. The current best practice is to incorporate high-value keywords in the meta title and meta description.

Meta Description

Meta descriptions provide a brief overview of the page for search results listings. Ideally, a meta description should be between 150-160 characters in length, although the field will accept up to 255 characters.

Canonical Meta Tag

The canonical meta tag can be used to tell search know which product or category page to index when there are multiple URLs with identical or very similar content.
