Hello,

Magento comes with the options to insert keywords, and meta-description, but in my opinion they are not enough!

I love Magento, however, I would like one day to see magento having like a ‘box’ to insert your own desired meta tags.  I will paste a sample below of what I mean:

<head>
<title>This is my website </title>
<meta name="page-topic" content="welcome to my website” />
<meta name="abstract" content="We sell niche stuff” />
<meta name="keywords" content="budget items, affordable items, keywords...” />
<meta name="Description" content="This is my company” />
<meta name="Classification" content="business, consumer, media, web marketing” />
<meta name="page-type" content="Online Store, Organization,” />
<meta name="subject" content="We sell trendy clothing” />
<meta name="language" content="english" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-US" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8” />
<meta name="Rating" content="general" />
<meta name="distribution" content="Global" />
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow" />
<meta http-equiv="Window-target" content="_top" />
<meta http-equiv="CACHE-CONTROL" content="PUBLIC" />
<meta name="revisit-after" content="30 days” />
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Tue, 29 Dec 2009 23:59:00 GMT” />
<meta name="resource-type" content="document\" />
<meta name="COPYRIGHT" content="© 2009 Codex Media” />
<meta name="author" content="myname" />
<meta http-equiv="Reply-to" content="info@myweb.com" />

Basically it would be great to have room to insert such meta-tags.  SEO-oriented ppl like me would really appreciate it since the WWW is all about competition and to get found on the internet!

Any information, kindly leave a message!

Thanks

J

Just edit app\design\frontend\default\default\template\page\html\head.phtml and add the custom meta tags in there. Or maybe the path is different if you set up a new template for your website (maybe app\design\frontend\yourtemplate\default\template\page\html\head.phtml)

Hope it helps,

The functionality has already built in. Please go to System > Configuration > Design > Html Head and edit “Miscellaneous scripts” field. Unfortunately this works only for static information / meta-tags.

Hi,

Also looking for a way to add Meta or Content between the <head> </head> to only product pages…

And then to be able to create extra attributes in admin, that would show this data accordingly!

I know there is a way in admin > config to add customer meta / header content to all pages, but this is no good to me!

Anyone got an app for that?

Thanks

This is an old post…

I believe it is worth mentioning that StoreFront offers a free Magento extension which adds rel="author" tags to Magento CMS pages, to help establish Google Authorship.
