Why are Meta Tags so important for SEO?

Meta tag indication is an easy way to provide search engines with information about pages. Visitors can't see such info, but our purpose is to show it to search engines thus making indexing faster. Due to Meta Tags search engines can understand website pages much better. Meta Title and Meta description are the most important of them. Canonical short urls also have a significant value for SEO. Meta information must be indicated on all pages of your website.

Essential Meta Tags for SEO
- Meta titles
- Meta descriptions
- Meta keywords
- Meta robots
- Image alt and title

User-friendly page layout
- Short product description
- Full product description
- Product name (H1 tag)
- Category description
- Text after a product list

How to create all the necessary meta tags?

You can change any Magento SEO tag manually but when you have a great amount of products in your store, it takes a long time. With Meta Tags Templates you generate meta tags automatically.

The module enables you to generate different templates for individual categories or products included into a specific category. This feature is a real “must have” for those who sell different types of products in one store as it helps to create a separate template for products in each category.


In case you need to specify meta data and descriptions for particular products, you can do it manually. The info you've specified won't be affected by the templates.

Quickly optimize your store

Meta Tags

With this Magento SEO module you can easily create category descriptions, full and short product descriptions with necessary Magento keywords. This can be extremely helpful when you need to launch your website fast and don't have enough time to write all descriptions.

Create templates for:

  • Product pages
  • Category pages
  • Any page by URL

Meta tags for any page by URL

magento meta tags templates urls title=

Specify URL for any site page and create meta tags for it. E.g., you can create meta tags for contacts, registration page, etc. or for a product if you don’t want its page to be affected by the category settings.

Create dynamic templates for:

  • Meta title
  • Meta description
  • Keywords
  • H1 tag
  • Canonical Url
  • Robots (nofollow, noindex)

Meta tags for products

magento meta tags templates

In standard Magento you can specify title, Magento meta keywords and description only for a specific product page. With the module you can add a template for all store products at once or for products of a specific category. For example, you can create a template, which will apply only to products from category Shirts and only for English store view.

Create dynamic templates for:

  • Title
  • Meta description
  • Keywords
  • H1 tag
  • Short description
  • Full description

new! WYSIWYG editor for descriptions

Now you can easily create and edit short and full descriptions for product pages with the help of WYSIWYG editor tool.

new! Short products descriptions on the category page

Since now all the products short descriptions created with the help of extension templates are shown on the category pages.

Meta tags for categories

magento XML site map images

The module lets you create individual templates for categories and subcategories. You can choose whether to have a separate template for a subcategory or use the template of the parent category for it.

Create dynamic templates for:

  • Meta title
  • Meta description
  • Keywords
  • H1 tag
  • Description
  • Image alt and image title
  • Text after product list

new! Ability to inherit templates

magento XML site map images

If any field of a subcategory template is not filled in, then meta data of a parent category is automatically used for it.

In case this field is not filled in for the parent category the extension automatically uses meta info of a senior parent category template.

Apply Templates for product URLs

magento XML site map images

With the Meta Tags Templates tool you can also apply newly created product URL templates to all the products previously added to your store. Therefore, there is no more need to manually rewrite them wasting your time. Just click on the "Apply Templates for Product URLs" and that's it.

  • Use variables like {name}, {sku} etc.
  • Apply templates for previously created products
  • Edit product Url templates much faster


Admin user can specify templates for descriptions and meta tags manually. It is possible to create separate templates for each store view, so you can translate the templates into the languages you use on your website.

Variables can be used for tags and description:

  • Attributes: {color}, {brand}, {price}, etc
  • Store info: {store_view}, {store}, {website}
  • Categories info: {category}, {categories}, {final_price}, {final_price_incl_tax}
  • for grouped products:{startingfrom_price} and {startingto_price}
  • for category pages with pager: {current_page}


For variables please use the attribute codes located here: Catalog - Attributes - Manage Attributes.

Complex variables

  • Complex variables like {brand|manufacturer|provider}
    This works great, if for some products you use manufacturer attribute and for others brand or provider attributes. So, for products with brand attribute, brand value will be used for meta tags; for products with manufacturer attribute, manufacturer value will be used etc.
  • Optional variables in square parenthesis '[]' both for product descriptions and meta tag templates
    Optional variables will be processed only if products use attributes contained within a variable.

Character limit for meta title and meta description

Google does not 'like' very long meta tags, so it is very important to make sure they are right. It is recommended not to exceed 65 characters for meta title and 160 characters for Magento meta description.

Error Prevention

If at some point attribute values of a product are changed (e.g. color becomes black instead if green; brand becomes Nike instead of Adidas, etc), the extension will automatically use the new data for meta tags, this way meta information will always be correct.

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by Amasty

    Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
    Rated 0 out of 5 by Let me start by saying that we have purchased several extensions to Amasty and we never had a problem: everything works perfectly! Except that, despite our best consideration for these developers, we are very disappointed by "Meta Tags Templates": automatic generation of meta tags, short and full product for items only work on product page. That means the values ​​generated by templates can NOT be used to generate feeds for Google shopping or other search engines or other purposes. Also, wanting to use the short_description in the detailed view of category page, it will only show the values ​​of system attributes, ignoring any value of custom attributes... I hope Amasty decide to make an update soon (we have also proposed to fund it) because with these limitations the use of templates is very little useful! August 10, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by This is truley worth every penny for this extension. The sheer amount of work and hours this has saved me has paid for itself just in one day. I have over 500 products in my store, and this has been a life saver. If there is an extension worth buying, it is this one!!!!!!!! June 20, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by Definitely the best money I have ever spent on a magento extension! Installed on 1.7 flawlessly and configured my whole site's meta info within 15 minutes! Five Stars! Thank You! Quick question, is there a file I can edit that will limit the meta description and title to only allow so many characters? If so, where and what should I put in it? Also, can you provide that feature in an update? Looking forward to hearing back from you. :) May 30, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by This Extension/Module is truly great, I must own at least 10 Amasty products now and they all work as stated. The support (though rarely needed) is second to none. Keep up the good work Alex, Val and Amasty Team - "5 STARS". April 25, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by We bought the Meta Template Module for Magento because we tought it would be a great extension for our webshop because we deal with many products. The product features are great and installation is painless! Than we needed some customizations because we wanted a bit more control and for a nice price this was added to the module in a few days. Amasty is a great company to work with. Helpful and Kind. We recommend them! March 29, 2012
    Rated 0 out of 5 by Where was this when i bought - seosuite(300usd), i am trying to run seosuite along side improved navigation, they dont play well together - i think i just might get this and dump seosuite all-together - the only usable thing left there is the sitemap and its stand alone....just wondering if I can put in a feature request for improved nav.
