GitHub Actions Build Status npm All Contributors semantic-release

Gatsby Plugin SEO makes managing SEO easier in your Gatsby JS project. It fully supports server-side rendering (SSR) with site wide configuration available via the gatsby-config.js plugin options. SEO options can also be tweaked at any moment by importing the main GatsbySeo component and passing in the desired props.

This codebase was initially forked from the brilliant next-seo project and is now maintained separately.

Table of Contents

Usage

GatsbySeo can be imported anywhere in your gatsby project. Once included you pass the configuration props with the page's SEO properties. A sitewide / default configuration can also be set via the plugin options in your gatsby-config.js file.

Setup

First, install the plugin and it's peer dependencies:

npm install --save gatsby-plugin-next-seo react-helmet-async

or

yarn add gatsby-plugin-next-seo react-helmet-async

react-helmet-async is an required external dependency since it relies on the React.Context API which can cause problems when different versions of the same library interact.

Add Plugin to Gatsby Config

Add the following configuration to your gatsby-config.js file.

module.exports {
  // ...
  plugins: [
    // ...
    'gatsby-plugin-next-seo'
  ],
}

The plugin allows documented GatsbySeoPluginOptions to be set. See an example below.

Add SEO to Page

Then you need to import GatsbySeo and add the desired properties. This component render the tags in the <head> for SEO on a per page basis. As a bare minimum, you should add a title and description.

Example with just title and description:

import React from 'react';
import { GatsbySeo } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <GatsbySeo title='Simple Usage Example' description='A short description goes here.' />
    <p>Simple Usage</p>
  </>
);

But GatsbySeo gives you many more options that you can add. See below for a typical example for any given gatsby layout.

Typical page example:

import React, { FC } from 'react';
import { GatsbySeo } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

const Layout: FC = ({ children }) => (
  <>
    <GatsbySeo
      title='Using More of Config'
      description='This example uses more of the available config options.'
      canonical='https://www.canonical.ie/'
      openGraph={{
        url: 'https://www.url.ie/a',
        title: 'Open Graph Title',
        description: 'Open Graph Description',
        images: [
          {
            url: 'https://www.example.ie/og-image-01.jpg',
            width: 800,
            height: 600,
            alt: 'Og Image Alt',
          },
          {
            url: 'https://www.example.ie/og-image-02.jpg',
            width: 900,
            height: 800,
            alt: 'Og Image Alt Second',
          },
          { url: 'https://www.example.ie/og-image-03.jpg' },
          { url: 'https://www.example.ie/og-image-04.jpg' },
        ],
        site_name: 'SiteName',
      }}
      twitter={{
        handle: '@handle',
        site: '@site',
        cardType: 'summary_large_image',
      }}
    />
    <div>{children}</div>
  </>
);

export default Layout;

A note on Twitter Tags

Twitter will read the og:title, og:image and og:description tags for their card. gatsby-plugin-next-seo omits twitter:title, twitter:image and twitter:description to avoid duplication.

Some tools may report this an error. See Issue #14

Default SEO Configuration in Gatsby Config

GatsbySeo enables you to set the default SEO properties that will appear on all pages without needing to do include anything on them. You can also override these on a page by page basis if needed.

To achieve this, you will need to add the properties to your gatsby-config.js file when setting up the plugin.

Here is a typical example:

// gatsby-config.js

module.exports {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo',
      options: {
        openGraph: {
          type: 'website',
          locale: 'en_IE',
          url: 'https://www.url.ie/',
          site_name: 'SiteName',
        },
        twitter: {
          handle: '@handle',
          site: '@site',
          cardType: 'summary_large_image',
        },
      },
    },
  ],
}

From now on all of your gatsby pages will have the defaults above applied.

No Index

Setting this to true will set noindex,follow (to set nofollow, please refer to nofollow). This works on a page by page basis. This property works in tandem with the nofollow property and together they populate the robots and googlebot meta tags.

Note: The noindex and the nofollow properties are a little different than all the others in the sense that setting them as a default does not work as expected. This is due to the fact Gatsby SEO already has a default of index,follow because gatsby-plugin-next-seo is a SEO plugin after all. So if you want to globally these properties, please see dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoIndex and dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoFollow.

Example No Index on a single page:

If you have a single page that you want no indexed you can achieve this by:

import React from 'react';
import { GatsbySeo } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <GatsbySeo noindex={true} />
    <p>This page is no indexed</p>
  </>
);

/*
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow">
<meta name="googlebot" content="noindex,follow">
*/

dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoIndex

It has the prefix of dangerously because it will noindex all pages. As this is an SEO plugin, that is kinda dangerous action. It is not bad to use this, just please be sure you want to noindex EVERY page. You can still override this at a page level if you have a use case to index a page. This can be done by setting noindex: false.

No Follow

Setting this to true will set index,nofollow (to set noindex, please refer to noindex). This works on a page by page basis. This property works in tandem with the noindex property and together they populate the robots and googlebot meta tags.

Note: The noindex and the nofollow properties are a little different than all the others in the sense that setting them as a default does not work as expected. This is due to the fact Gatsby SEO already has a default of index,follow because gatsby-plugin-next-seo is a SEO plugin after all. So if you want to globally these properties, please see dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoIndex and dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoFollow.

Example No Follow on a single page:

If you have a single page that you want no indexed you can achieve this by:

import React from 'react';
import { GatsbySeo } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <GatsbySeo nofollow={true} />
    <p>This page is not followed</p>
  </>
);

/*
<meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow">
<meta name="googlebot" content="index,nofollow">
*/

dangerouslySetAllPagesToNoFollow

It has the prefix of dangerously because it will nofollow all pages. As this is an SEO plugin, that is kinda dangerous action. It is not bad to use this, just please be sure you want to nofollow EVERY page. You can still override this at a page level if you have a use case to follow a page. This can be done by setting nofollow: false.

noindex nofollow meta content of robots, googlebot
-- -- index,follow (default)
false false index,follow
true -- noindex,follow
true false noindex,follow
-- true index,nofollow
false true index,nofollow
true true noindex,nofollow

Twitter

Twitter will read the og:title, og:image and og:description tags for their card, this is why gatsby-plugin-next-seo omits twitter:title, twitter:image and twitter:description so not to duplicate.

Some tools may report this an error. See Issue #14

facebook

facebook={{
  appId: 1234567890,
}}

Add this to your SEO config to include the fb:app_id meta if you need to enable Facebook insights for your site. Information regarding this can be found in facebook's documentation

Canonical URL

Add this on a page per page basis when you want to consolidate duplicate URLs.

canonical = 'https://www.canonical.ie/';

Alternate

This link relation is used to indicate a relation between a desktop and a mobile website to search engines.

Example:

mobileAlternate={{
  media: 'only screen and (max-width: 640px)',
  href: 'https://m.canonical.ie',
}}
languageAlternate={{
  hrefLang: 'de-AT',
  href: 'https://www.canonical.ie/de',
}}

Additional Meta Tags

This allows you to add any other meta tags that are not covered in the config.

content is required. Then either name or property. (Only one on each)

Example:

additionalMetaTags={[{
  property: 'dc:creator',
  content: 'Jane Doe'
}, {
  name: 'application-name',
  content: 'GatsbySeo'
}]}

Invalid Examples:

These are invalid as they contain property and name on the same entry.

additionalMetaTags={[{
  property: 'dc:creator',
  name: 'dc:creator',
  content: 'Jane Doe'
}, {
  property: 'application-name',
  name: 'application-name',
  content: 'GatsbySeo'
}]}

JSON-LD

Gatsby SEO has the ability to set JSON-LD a form of structured data. Structured data is a standardised format for providing information about a page and classifying the page content.

Google has excellent documentation on JSON-LD -> HERE

Override

Each (non-deprecated) JSON LD component provides a set of utility props to help you in the journey of setting up your your site for Search Engine Optimization and voice assistant support. However there are times when you will need more control, and for these situations there is an overrides prop available which allows you to manually override the schema type.

The following example would add a datePublished property to the JSON LD head script produced.

const OverrideCourseJsonLd = () => (
  <CourseJsonLd
    name='Course Name'
    providerName='Course Provider'
    providerUrl='https//www.example.com/provider'
    description='Course description goes right here'
    overrides={{ '@type': 'Course', datePublished: '2015-02-05T08:00:00+08:00' }}
  />
);

Currently, when using TypeScript, you must provide an @type property to the overrides prop. This may change in the future.

Article

import React from 'react';
import { ArticleJsonLd } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <h1>Article JSON-LD</h1>
    <ArticleJsonLd
      url='https://example.com/article'
      headline='Article headline'
      images={[
        'https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/4x3/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/16x9/photo.jpg',
      ]}
      datePublished='2015-02-05T08:00:00+08:00'
      dateModified='2015-02-05T09:00:00+08:00'
      authorName='Jane Blogs'
      publisherName='Ifiok Jr.'
      publisherLogo='https://www.example.com/photos/logo.jpg'
      description='This is a mighty good description of this article.'
      overrides={{
        '@type': 'BlogPosting', // set's this as a blog post.
      }}
    />
  </>
);

News Article

This is simply a fancy wrapper around the Article component.

import React from 'react';
import { NewsArticleJsonLd } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <h1>News Article JSON-LD</h1>
    <NewsArticleJsonLd
      url='https://example.com/article'
      title='Article headline'
      images={[
        'https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/4x3/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/16x9/photo.jpg',
      ]}
      section='politic'
      keywords='prayuth,taksin'
      datePublished='2015-02-05T08:00:00+08:00'
      dateModified='2015-02-05T09:00:00+08:00'
      authorName='Jane Blogs'
      publisherName='Ifiok Jr.'
      publisherLogo='https://www.example.com/photos/logo.jpg'
      description='This is a mighty good description of this article.'
      body='This is all text for this news article'
    />
  </>
);

Blog Post

A utility component which wraps the <ArticleJsonLd /> component but is classified as a BlogPosting.

import React from 'react';
import { BlogPostJsonLd } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';
 *
export default () => (
  <>
    <h1>Blog Post JSON-LD</h1>
    <BlogPostJsonLd
      url='https://example.com/blog'
      title='Blog headline'
      images={[
        'https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/4x3/photo.jpg',
        'https://example.com/photos/16x9/photo.jpg',
      ]}
      datePublished='2015-02-05T08:00:00+08:00'
      dateModified='2015-02-05T09:00:00+08:00'
      authorName='Jane Blogs'
      description='This is a mighty good description of this blog.'
    />
  </>
);

Breadcrumb

import React from 'react';
import { BreadcrumbJsonLd } from 'gatsby-plugin-next-seo';

export default () => (
  <>
    <h1>Breadcrumb JSON-LD</h1>
    <BreadcrumbJsonLd
      itemListElements={[
        {
          position: 1,
          name: 'Books',
          item: 'https://example.com/books',
        },

          name: 'Authors',
          item: 'https://example.com/books/authors',
        },
        {

Speakable

The speakable schema.org property identifies sections within an article or webpage that are best suited for audio playback using text-to-speech (TTS).

Adding markup allows search engines and other applications to identify content to read aloud on voice assistant-enabled devices using TTS. Webpages with speakable structured data can use voice assistants to distribute the content through new channels and reach a wider base of users.

FAQ

Why did you choose gatsby-plugin-next-seo as the project name?

Unfortunately the better options gatsby-seo and gatsby-plugin-seo were already taken. As a result I've used gatsby-plugin-next-seo as a shout out to the original next-seo project from which this codebase has been forked.
