Edit page title and meta description for search engine entries

Every subpage of your shop has so-called meta tags. One of their purposes is giving Google and other search engines further information about a page.

The following are the most important meta tags of your shop. They affect how your shop's pages appear in search results and can be edited in your shop administration:

  • The page title is shown on the browser tab and is also displayed as a link in search engine results. Per default, the page title includes the shop name and the page name. When you edit the search engine entry of a page, you may also add keywords that are relevant to your shop.
  • The meta description will be shown in the results of search engines such as Google, and can attract more visitors to your shop. Add a brief and meaningful text to describe each page. For products, the first 160 characters of the product description are used for the meta description per default.
