Add/Edit Social Media Meta Tags and SEO

These days, sharing information from your website to your social media pages is a must and a great way to drive traffic to your website. Here is a tutorial that covers how to properly setup your meta tags to ensure your shared links appear correctly and search engines crawl specified content. To learn more about meta tags, please read our blog post: NEW SEO Features and Social Media Meta Tags

  • Title: Use this to change what goes in the meta title, it will use the original Page Title if left blank 
  • Description: Set the meta description here. If left blank it will try to use the SEO description, and if that's empty it will try to find the first Text Component/Module with content entered.
