The advantages of our solution for SEO promotion of filter pages and their combinations
— Automatic generation of pages by rules
You can create an unlimited number of rules for automatically generating of SEO pages for filters.
What is the rule?
Rule for generation - is stored in a database template for page creation process.It is a set of parameters to generate pages with certain elements of the mask: attributes and meta tags, using which SEO optimized pages will be generated. After creating the rule, you can change it at any time to start regeneration, and all the pages, having the status of "unfixed" to be rebuilt again in accordance with the new rules (template meta tags and others attributes). One-time creating a rule, you can maintain a constant process of creation of new pages in the case if new variants of filters will be added in the category. To do this you need to use cron (the system will give you a ready link to add tasks in cron).
From addon v. 2.0 we can create rules for multiple features
Also o use the filter combinations we have provided a manual mode of creating SEO pages.
— Manual mode of creating SEO pages
In manual mode, you can create a SEO optimized pages for filter their combinations (with several filter variants) without setting rules. To do this, you only need to copy the value of the parameter features_hash in link for formed filter page and use it with desired category.
In manual mode, you can create SEO optimized page, that is open for search engines as well as having all the necessary attributes to be optimized.
— Import - export of SEO pages for filters with all attributes
We have provided the best paradigm to work with SEO pages for filters:
- Create a rule for pages generation
- Generate pages according to the rules (get them in the unfixed status)
- Exporting the resulting pages in Excel
- Work with the attributes of pages (all the meta tags and seo texts as separate fields in the table), save the file
- Importing to the system in the fixed status
- Obtain profit
— 2 statuses of SEO pages
Especially for the best user experience in optimization, we have provided 2 pages statuses:
- Unfixed – pages, that in time of the next generation will be automatically re-generated in accordance with the rules that you set (this status is used by SEOs as temporary & ndash; to manual inspection and optimization, after which the status of the links can be switched to fixed)
- Fixed – pages, that can not be affected by automatically regeneration. This pages do not change their meta tags, SEO texts during next generating
Also SEO page status can be used for:
- Search by SEO links in backend of addon
- Generate a site map (unfixed pages can be excluded from the site map)
At any time you can change the status of the links in a fixed or unfixed status.
— Full control over the page optimization
For seo filter page (or page, formed from combination of filters) you can override:
- meta description;
- meta keywords;
- seo text (with editor);
- text for Bread Crumbs of SEO page;
- text for product Bread Crumbs (Bread Crumbs will be shown on associated with this seo filters product pages).
— Meta tags
Full control over the meta tags and elements of page HEADER for filter pages, that are optimized:
- meta name="robots" content="noindex" – deleted in code for pages that are optimized;
- element rel="canonical" – leads to a page of seo filter instead of category page;
- element rel="alternate" – language versions of the page are correctly declared;
- meta name="description" – full control (including the generation by a mask with autosubstitution of Category name variant name of feature);
- meta name="keywords" – full control (including the generation by a mask with autosubstitution of Category name variant name of feature);
- element rel=”next” и rel=”prev” – declares pagination pages for SEO Filter pages, not for categories or for the system (default addresses with parameters);
We have considered all the mistakes of other similar solutions and performed work optimally for search under the control of SEOs and you can be confident in the correctness of this addon!
Placeholders (variables) support for the automatic construction of the meta attributes and titles
When you create a page generation templates (rules) or manually creating them, you can use the following placeholders:
- %category% - system category name
- %custom_category_h1%custom H1 header (if you use the addon
- %filter% - filter name
- %variant% - feature variant name (activation of the filter through which leads to the creation of the page)
- new!!!!!!!!starting from version 2.3 you can change the default names of features variants with the SEO optimized names
For all the attributes you can create and use (by one click) special combinations of words with placeholders (patterns)
— The correct weight transfer for Seo page filter by proper relinking
Search engines will know about the pages of SEO filters by the links from three sources:
- category page (from filter block) with the support of sequence of choosen filters (if you are already registered filter combination + Samsung 32-inch, then from a page with selected Samsung will maintain a link to the page combination Samsung + 32);
- product page (in breadcrumbs) - full control of the anchors in the breadcrumbs on the SEO page for filter, we put in the bread crumbs all relating to the product links to filter pages;
For filters, which do not participate in the optimization, links will not be created in the filter block.
We have implemented links to the pages of optimized filters to all the places the user expected, these links will be clickable as possible, which will give them more credibility in the eyes of search engines. Your pages will be more competitive in the battle for the search results!
