Seo MOD to improve search optimization

How about a SEO Mod the user might drop into the head section to edit meta tags relevant for seo performance? Might that be doable? Of cause that would mean the content is the same on all pages which might be sub.optimal. Still… Just a thought. Probably not feasible anyway. Also not sure if mods can be dropped into the head section at all.

This is a neat idea, would you change the SOE on the fly for different updates. I think I would use it but no 100% sure.

My Main Idea is to free myself from haveíng to think through the seo-Tags relevant inside the head-section myself. I would hope for a collection of meta-Tags relevant to add to the head all neatly connected inside just one mod. I am looking for some pre-written (and well thought out) Mod I may use to make sure I have not forgotten something important when it comes to fulfilling (at least the basic) seo-requirements. At the same time, a mod of this kind might enable the user to manage the SEO Terms and settings themselves. If the user can edit those settings hinself, that would free my time up. It would free me from working on those seo Terms on behalf of my client, just and only because the client cannot edit those seo-settings in the head himself. Thus: I would love to drop a SEO-Mod into the head section . As mentioned I am not sure if any Mod may successfully be dropped into the head section at all

Right now, the script searched through the body for mods. We could make it search through the head too, but that might hurt general performance a little bit for all mods. Another solution might be to write some JS in the mod to manipulate the head, but we would need to better understand how that would affect SEO before we recommended it to users. We’ll think about it!

Great!

Let me know if I can assist you by any means.

I am curiously looking forward to your findings :wink:

Are there any news regarding the Meta-Tags in the Head of the page(s) via AnyMod?

Will anymod offer support regarding the topic of ‘SEO Optimization’ ?

Or will it remain impossible to inject meta-tags into the head (comming from anymod)?

In the latter case I would cover this soe issue myself.
I just need to know. If something is comming up from anymod here, or if I shall hardcode the metatag-information into the head manually for each page.

I just start to wonder if AnyMod might be able to inject meta-Tags into the head dynamically? Comming from the V2-Script? In such a scenario: The anymod-admin might see new input fields on the settings-page of the anymod-interface. He might fill in some meta-information for the project.

I am aware some Information will have to be page-secific and will thus not be configurable via the Project-anymod-setting-.page.

But nevertheless, maybe anymod can assist.

I wonder if I will be able to add general-meta-tag information via Anymod in the future.

There will certainly also be page-specific-info to add to the head of each page specifically. Maybe Anymod can help here to , just by adding a short documentation page to let the user know what to think of. And what to manually add to the pages HEAD section in order to improove the SEO Ranking.

This just came to mind spontaiously.

Pls. let me know if I should better cover the SEO meta-tag issue on my own, of if it makes sense to wait for anymod.

PS: THhis is also an issue my client considers as important, but has no time-pressure on it. I am allowed to look into this some 3 month from now. so there is no hurry, but it still remains a task on my tasklist :wink: Hence, this message :wink:

I would like to know if I should look into the SEO-Metatag-Topic myself, or if it makes sense to wait for anymod. Anymod wanted to look into it and provide feedback.

We’ve been monitoring this, and it looks like Google handles it well. Bing does not appear to index meta tags that are added this way, so that would be a caveat. Their official information says they do, but that is not the behavior we’re seeing.

We probably won’t officially recommend this until we see adoption by Bing as well, but in the meantime if you are primarily concerned with Google results, it should work well.

Okay, I will go with this, because I feel Bing is rather irrelevant :wink: So, is there a MOD I could clone to get me started?

Yes here is one that is a proof of concept. It takes the title and description fields and uses them to set the meta tags!

Thank you. This is interesting. I am not a SEO Guy at all, but I feel I might better read a bit more about seo before I start relying on your Mod solely. I would like to make sure I cover this topic as careful (conscientious?) as possible. You mod seems too rudimentary perhaps. I will investigate. Also, I wonder if you suggested to drop this Mod into the head section, or if you consider this mod to be best dropped into the Body Section?

Hi Stefan,

It basically comes down to whether or not the search service crawls web pages with JavaScript enabled. That means the crawler will run the page’s JavaScript before “saving” the page for the search index. Google does this, and they are the leader on it.

As mentioned above, Bing says they do it, but it’s pretty hit or miss. It’s likely that over the next couple of years, Bing and all major search engines will adopt this practice in order to continue competing with Google (and because JS has become so important).

For the “rudimentary” mod you mentioned – it is very basic indeed. The JavaScript is setting the title and the meta description, which can then be read by the crawler. It could be updated to add many more meta tags, but we do want to experiment some more and see how search engines respond before releasing an “official” mod for this.

Hope that helps!

I guess I may offer you to testrun you Meta-Tag MOD on a Live Project of mine. But I feel the Mod you forwarded is too basic to implement it at the moment. I would prefer a solution a bit more sophisticated than the current mod. Feel free to cooperate with me on a live page and beta-test your metatag-Mod with me . I will be glad to use such a Mod on the below mentioned page, provided some more though has gone into the structure of the metatag-mod in the first place. If you are willing to invest some more time into a more sophisticated mod, I will be glad to betatest it on this portal
https://skysails-mp.de/ - it urgendly needs some metatags anyway :wink:
