SEO for Craft CMS

SEO for Craft CMS

SEO for Craft does three things that will help your sites SEO, and does them really damn well:

  1. Optimisation Field Type - Helps your clients write better optimised copy, and manage other SEO meta.
  2. Sitemap - Generates an always up-to-date XML sitemap automatically, with controls for customisation.
  3. Redirects - Quickly and easily manage 301 & 302 redirects. Especially useful when migrating from an old site.

The Field Type

The SEO field type helps give users an idea of how their page will look in Google, and how their pages content scores when compared to a specific keyword.

The field type allows users to manage the meta of their page in one simple and easy to use input that has the added bonus of giving them an idea of how their page will show up in a Google search.

The field also contains a Focus Keyword input and Page Score. This is used to workout how relevant a key word or phrase is to your entry and how well the page is likely to do in a search for that keyword.

The Page Score also contains a breakdown of your entries score, and tips on where it can be improved.

The Sitemap

SEO for Craft boasts an extremely powerful, yet simple to use Sitemap manager. With automatic support for all your site’s sections and categories (with localisations taken into account), and the ability to easily add custom URLs (useful for public templates that aren’t content managed), keeping your sitemap up-to-date has never been easier.

With SEO for Craft’s sitemap manager you have complete control over what content you want to have appear on your sitemap as well as managing its change frequency and priority in your site.

The Redirects

When moving from your old, awful site to your shiny new Craft one, you’ll want to make sure that all your old pages are redirected to their new counterparts. Redirects are easy to manage with SEO for Craft.

SEO for Crafts redirect manager lets you easily add 301 & 302 redirects, with full .htaccess style regex support!

Redirects support PCRE regex syntax. By default, all / and ? not inside parenthesis are escaped. To prevent any escaping include the opening and closing forward slashes and flags: /^blog$/i. All redirects are given the insensitive flag, unless overwritten.

Redirect Regex Example
To redirect from blog/2016/my-post to news/my-post you would add the following redirect:

URI: blog/([0-9]{4})/(.*) To: news/$2

Installation & Usage

Clone this repo into craft/plugins/seo.

Using Composer

Easy way

composer require ether/seo

Alternative way

  1. Append "ether/seo": "^3.1.0" to the require hash of composer.json
  2. composer update
  3. Install via CP in /admin/settings/plugins

Before using the SEO field type, you’ll need to ensure all the settings are correct. You can find the settings under the SEO plugin menu in the sidebar, or via the plugin menu.

Fieldtype Usage

Replace your title tag, and any other SEO related meta tags with {% hook "seo" %}. That's it!

This assumes that you will be creating a variable call seo in your templates that will return either the SEO field or a custom SEO object (see below). You can modify the output of this hook by setting your own SEO Meta Template in the SEO Settings. You can view the default template here.

Custom SEO Object

In some cases, you will not have access to an SEO field, but will want to set the page title, description, & socials. You can do this by creating a custom SEO object using the function below:

craft.seo.custom(
    'The Page Title', 
    'The page description', 
    
    // Whether or not to include the title suffix after your title
    includeDefaultTitleSuffix = true,
    
    // Social media - Any missing fields (excluding images) will be populated by the values above
    {
        twitter: { image: myImageField.first() },
        facebook: { title: '', description: '', image: myImageField.first() },
    }
);

All parameters are optional.
