Header Tags SEO

Recommended Posts

Jack

 

I went through My Store>Admin>catalog>category/products to manually input meta tag info for each product.

 

I then went in and played around with Header Tags SEO>Fill Tags and accidentally erased all my good work. How should I set this page and protect the meta tag info I inputted?

 

At the moment I have;

Fill products meta description with Products Description? NO

Fill keywords for all added pages from derived keywords on actual pages? NO

Skip all tags for catagories / maunfacturer / products

 

thanks

How are you!? I'm enjoying your contribution, thanks for your hard work.

 

I have a question - perhaps I'm missing something here - but I can't seem to get the social bookmarks to display. Is there something more I am supposed to do, other than enable them in admin? I couldn't see any documentation for their use.

 

I am using the latest version of STS.

 

TIA

 

Kind regards

SSNB

I just tried displaying the bookmarks in an STS installation I have here and they display. If they are not displaying on yours, maybe you missed the addition of the code for them on the index and product_info pages?

That looks correct. You should try it again, with only one product changed and make sure it doesn't clear it. All I can think is that you selected the fill all option by mistake.

In the header_tags_seo.php i've writen the "Product:" text in the title field and in the "Meta Tag Information" from the product are also filled out.

 

In the Category browsing everything works well.

 

How can i change my problem -has anyone an idea or the same problem?

I think I probably did hit "fill all".

 

One other thing I just noticed. After I installed the contrib there is now a box with a red cross in it along side the page title, when I go into categories. You can have a look here

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

It looks like the database data is corrupted. It might be using a different charset than what is in Header Tags.

That's a missing image. If you do not use the icons on your site, then you need to delete that code when doing the install.

Hi Jack,

 

Forgive my ignorance, but which index page? I am using just the standard index.php.html in STS - do I need some code in there? Is there any operating manual for the social bookmarks?

 

TIA

Ok. Which page should I be looking at to figure out the code to delete?

Jack,

 

First of all let me say that it is a wonderful contribution and thanks for your work.

That thing you added lately - showing missing tags - was exactly what I was thinking about. It just made this contribution shine.

I have a question for you:

I noticed that some use Ultimate SEO URLs and Header Tags SEO combined. I never thought about that, thinking that your contribution includes Ultimate SEO URLs functionality. So, will installation of Ultimate SEO URLs give something that I'm missing?

 

Thank you for advice.

 

Oh, one question more, I'm sorry, this is not about contribution mostly, about how I should fill tags. Let say item name is GRAND THEFT AUTO IV - XBOX 360.

If it is possible, can you give me example of tags? If I fill tags manually on a product edit page I do something like this:

 

Product Title Tag: GRAND THEFT AUTO IV - XBOX 360

 

Product Description Tag: GRAND THEFT AUTO IV - XBOX 360 - GRAND THEFT AUTO IV - GRAND THEFT AUTO - XBOX 360

 

Product Keywords Tag: GRAND THEFT AUTO IV - XBOX 360,GRAND THEFT AUTO IV,GRAND THEFT AUTO,XBOX 360

 

What would be your sample for tags in that case?

 

Thanks again,

Mike

Header Tags and Ultimate SEO perform different functions. You should have them both installed.

 

For the keywords, as long as the keywords are used in the text on the page, it should be OK.

Thanks Jack,

Thanks for reply.

While you answer me I installed another your great contribution: SEO Assistant and it looks like it works (well, it has some things, but I gonna ask about them in SEO Assistant support thread).

I will install Ultimate SEO probably tomorrow.

I thought that name of the product should be in a list of keywords to make product searchable.

If I understood correct, I made correct keywords by your opinion.

Thank you again!

Hi!

 

I'm having problems getting the social bookmarks to display. I've trippelchecked that I've added the code to index and productinfo but no luck. Anyone had this problem?

 

Running on RC2 and the rest of SEO went supersmooth (fantastic contribution really I LOVE IT).

In either file, find this line
<?php if (HEADER_TAGS_DISPLAY_SOCIAL_BOOKMARKS == 'true')

and change it to

<?php echo 'showing bookmarks';

If the bookmarks show up then, there is a problem with your database. If they don't, and the above text doesn't show up, you have a coding error. If they don't and the above text shows up, then the problem is in the boobkmarks code - maybe relacing that file will help.

Thank you Jack. According to your method it's a code error sooooo..... I am blaming myself. I'll uninstall and start from scratch (luckily I'm working on a brand new shop that's currently blank). Thanks again!

Hi all,

 

Header Tags SEO is working great but my categories and products pages are without title, decryption and keywords in meta tags. Each of my product has own title, keywords and description. I dont know where is the problem. I tried default settings but It didint work as well.

 

My index.php (and contact, about us pages) are working great. They have own title description and keywords.

 

If you can help me could be great.

Hello all,

 

Great job on the latest versions of this great contrib. Installation is very easy, configuration takes a while but this is not up to you :)

Just wanted to point out a couple of changes I had to made in order to make it pass the w3c html validation:

Here are the 2 changes I had to do:

 

In includes/header_tags.php replace the whole echo meta tags at the end of the file with this (remove / closing slash on meta tags and changed order)

 

echo ' <meta name="Description" content="' . $header_tags_array['desc'] . '" >' . "\n";
echo ' <meta name="Keywords" content="' . $header_tags_array['keywords'] . '" >' . "\n";

if ($defaultTags['meta_google'])   echo ' <meta name="googlebot" content="all">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_language']) echo ' <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-US">'."\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_noodp'])	echo ' <meta name="robots" content="noodp">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_noydir'])   echo ' <meta name="slurp" content="noydir">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_revisit'])  echo ' <meta name="revisit-after" content="1 days">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_robots'])   echo ' <meta name="robots" content="index, follow">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_unspam'])   echo ' <meta name="no-email-collection" value="' . HTTP_SERVER . '">' . "\n";
if ($defaultTags['meta_replyto'])  echo ' <meta name="Reply-to" content="' . STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS . '">' . "\n";

echo ' <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=' . CHARSET  . '" >'."\n";
echo ' <title>' . $header_tags_array['title'] . '</title>' . "\n";
echo '<!-- EOF: Header Tags SEO Generated Meta Tags -->' . "\n";

 

Replace includes/modules/header_tags_social_bookmarks.php with the following (replace all & to &)

 

<?php
$NAME = htmlspecialchars($product_info['products_name'], ENT_QUOTES);
$TITLE = urlencode($product_info['products_name']);
$URL = urlencode("http://" . $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"] . $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]);
?>
<tr>
<td align="right"><table border="0" width="20%">
 <tr>
 <td><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://del.icio.us/post?url=<?php echo $URL . '&title=' . $TITLE; ?>">
 <img src="images/socialbookmark/delicious.png" alt="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to del.icio'; ?> " title="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME. ' to del.icio'; ?> " border="0"></a></td>

 <td><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url=<?php echo $URL . '&title=' . $TITLE; ?>">
 <img src="images/socialbookmark/digg.png" alt="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Digg'; ?> " title="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Digg'; ?> " border="0"></a></td>

 <td><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://technorati.com/cosmos/search.html?url=<?php echo $URL . '&title=' . $TITLE; ?>">
 <img src="images/socialbookmark/technorati.png" alt="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Technorati'; ?> " title="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Technorati'; ?> " border="0"></a></td>

 <td><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://furl.net/storeIt.jsp?t=<?php echo $URL . '&title=' . $TITLE; ?>">
 <img src="images/socialbookmark/furl.gif" alt="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Furl'; ?> " title="<?php echo 'Add' . $NAME . ' to Furl'; ?> " border="0"></a></td>

 <td><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://reddit.com/submit?url=<?php echo $URL . '&title=' . $TITLE; ?>">

</table></td>
</tr>

Did you run Fill Tags? Check in admin to see that the categories/products have the tags filled in.

Hi Jack

 

I just noticed that all my categories have the same page title, which is the same title as in the Default Tags English.

 

How do I edit each category page title?

 

BTW, when I got to this step (below) of "how to operate", I couldn't find the large box for category description.

 

 

4) Go to admin->catalog, click on a category and then on edit. At the bottom of the

edit section to the right, you will see a large box for Categories Description.

The text you enter here will appear under the title on the category page for

this category. This is useful for your customers but is also good for the search

engines, as long as the text contains mention of the keyword for that page (which

is usually the category name).

It sounds like there was a mistake in the installation. You can try using the categories file supplied with the contribution to see if the box shows up.
