this pull request allow taxon seo customization.
I've also added some custom rspec matchers : have_title and have_meta

But a small comment that meta-tags are for the major search engines today just an indicator that the site might be spamming keywords if you read (and trust) the latest seo reports, so meta-keywords should be within valuation a deprecated feature and maybe only be used for supplying additional support to internal search and tag clouds.

...should this not be pushed to master. I wonder if it wise to add additional fields to a stable branch?


@sbounmy looks good to me, +1 from me, if @radar or any core team votes for this, I am happy to merge
@futhr do you have any sources to backup your point?

@joneslee85 I read an interview/article with some Google guy about it when I was doing an research to update myself about general usage of meta tags for HTML5. But I have to get back to you when I find the reference again, this is as always opinionated know-how when it comes to seo best practices. Well, of course I don't rely on one source so I use to check major websites built on HTML5 and I see that its a common pattern that its being dropped together with may other meta types that was common before.

@futhr I also heard about meta-keywords deprecation, but I wanted to keep it consistent with products which had meta-keywords.
IMHO this is a quite straightforward pull request so it can be pushed to master and 1-3-stable
