There are mainly two different ways this is being done, by manual incertion or automatic creation.
The manual versions are headed of by Header Tags Controller while the automatic ones are headed of by C-Dynamic Meta Tags.
1. Header Tags Controller
This contribution lets you incert individual meta tags for all your products and categories in the add product/categories part of your admin, it also contains a separate section which lets you incert meta tags for other singular pages on your site.
The system also comes with a basic fill tags system, where you can automatically fill all the products and categories with meta tags.
The install is medium advanced and slightly time consuming , but most should still be able to install it by just following the included instructions.
- It lets you incert meta tags manually for your products and categories.
- The contribs mods of your shops files also include other seo optimizing details for your shop side files.
- It lets you define meta tags for all the static pages on your site too.
- The install is to complicated and time consuming for some.
- If you have a shop with a large number of products and/or uses import of products feeds to fill your shop there is alot of work in adding the meta info manually for all the products.
- The autofill function is way to basic and ads only the product name as tittle tag, meta description and meta key words.
This is a very good seo tool for shops with a small amount of products or larger shops where products have not been entered yet.

2. C-Dynamic Meta Tags
This contribution incerts meta tags automatically for your shops products and categories (and new products, specials ++), in addition it lets you add meta tags for your index page and general tags manually.
The meta tags can also be cached for shortest possible execution time, lower server load and faster page load time.
Install is very easy and straight forward.
- Very easy install
- Easy on server resources due to caching
- Creates all your meta tags automatically for any amount of categories/products.
- You can not enter your product/category meta tags manually
- The category part of the automatic meta tags function is very basic.
This is a very good seo tool for those who have a pre-populated shop with many categories and products or for those who fill up their products using feed import as well as it is a very easy server load which is more and more important teh larger your product/category numbers get.
Also its a good tool for those who whant to have meta tags and tittles but who do not want to manually incert them.
Last but not least if the header tags install is to much for you, then the easy install of this one will probably appeal to you.

In the next post i will have a closer look at some of the other meta tags contributions too.
