CS-Cart gives the administrator complete freedom to manage SEO for pages, but sometimes it is required to quickly configure the generation of meta tags with special logic (often after SEO audits). There are several similar modules on the CS-Cart marketplace, that allow you to do this, but we offer a something extended version, using which, you will be able to achieve the highest clickability rates of your links in search results (which is ... a huge plus to search positions in a short time after implementation).

Features shortly:

  1. The ability to exclude the meta tag "Keywords" on all pages of the site (a frequent requirement after a series of audits from major studios)
  2. Automatic generation of meta tags for category pages, brands, products, content pages for created templates with placeholders support (important variables in the system, that can be used in template)
  3. The ability to determine in addon settings, what to do with the meta tags of each CS-Cart entity: 1) do not override, 2) override if they are not filled 3) override all


Optimization of page headers, meta tags automatic generation by templates:

Meta tag templates for category pages

support the following placeholders:

  • [category_name] - category name
  • [category_parent_name] - category parent name
  • [category_path] - category path
  • [category_path_reverse] - reverse category path
  • [min_price] - minimal product price in this category
  • [max_price] - maximal product price in this category
  • [total_products] - total products count


Meta tag templates for brands pages

support the following placeholders:

  • [brand] - feature variant name
  • [min_price] - minimal product price in this category
  • [max_price] - maximal product price in this category
  • [total_products] - total products count

Meta tag templates for product pages

support the following placeholders:

  • [product] - product name
  • [product_category] - product category name
  • [product_price] - product price
  • [product_brand] - product brand
  • [product_code] - product sku
  • [product_category_path] - product category path
  • [product_category_path_reverse] - reverse product category path

Meta tag templates for content pages

support the following placeholders:

  • [page] - page name
  • [page_parent] - page parent name
  • [page_path] - page path
  • [page_path_reverse] - reverse page path

Other advantages:

  • Possibility to redefine the standard separator for CS-Cart
  • Does not create a load for system
  • Possibility to change letter case for placeholders (lowercase, uppercase and first capital)
  • Works with Custom H1 header for category page addon
  • Placeholders work on objects level (you can use it on meta tags field for any category or product)

Recommendations :

  • Show in the page headings for categories the number of available products in the list and the price interval (the minimum price and the maximum price of available products) - this will make your snippets the most clickable + dynamic (frequent re-indexing of pages)
  • Make your search snippets as logical as possible (smart template) - hide from the search engine a pattern, make them as "humane"
  • Do not make headers and meta tags larger in size, than search standards recommended.
  • Experiment, developing the most "working" variants of templates (achieve maximum CTR)

Хороший модуль, полезный. Экономит кучу времени. Но есть вопрос, а плейсхолдеры можно использовать только в мета тегах или в в любом месте на странице товара или категории? А то не плохо было бы использовать плейсхолдеры мин цены например или бренд
