Dynamic meta description and meta keywords
« on: February 19, 2006, 08:27:43 PM »
I have been using this mod to make dynamic meta description tags and meta keywords tags… I am very happy with the results  in all pages other than homepage….  :?

Quote
<meta name="description" content="some blabla, {cat_name} bla bla. Download {cat_name} bla bla, …….., free {cat_name} for download……..">
<meta name="keywords" content="{image_name},{cat_name},free ……..{cat_name} …… {cat_name} ……..">

in homepage the category name and image name becomes same as the new image cat and image name… how do I mage the homepage tags static and others dynamic…. is there any check or conditional tags we can apply to check if its home.html or other templates….

Thanks

Yes you are correct, people has been long abusing all these tags, but still top search engines like go***e uses it to show in search results... if not available then it selects its own variant of site description... and trust me.... they are sometimes soooo funny.... like in the description, the first line maybe full of text like:  light box, new images.... or from breadcrumbs etc.... kind of not very relevant

maybe keywords meta tags are more ignored, but I guess description meta tags are still used widely.

Then my suggestion would be to register "special" tags for this metter.
For starters you could try install this mod and then register new template tags by adding below
Code: [Select]
  "clickstream" => $clickstream, something like:
Code: [Select]
  "meta_keywords" => "list of keywords",
  "meta_description" => "some description",
You can try use $cat_name, $image_name variables in details.php or categories.php...

Just an idea to get you started ;)

Some search engines like polish onet.pl (most popular - excluding google) still reading description and keywords tags
and its something round

1000 characters from description
and
250 from keywords
;)

In templates:

Copy the source code of "header.html"

Open "home.html"

to change {header} by the copied source code


Publish to its pleasure (in home.html):
<title>xxxxxxxx</title>
"meta_keywords" => "xxxxxxxx"
"meta_description" => "xxxxxxxxx"


This will only have effect for the page index.

Thank you very much prive
Simple idea, but just did not think this way  :D

Sometimes some things seems to be a blessing in disguise.. I have noted that search engines seems to be liking it ;) like when I add new content (almost daily) it changes dynamical.. And this seems to be having good results in search....like the fresh content on the homepage is always reflected into the tags.. Making the tags fresh with new content

I think that you are right but with shades.

If the main page changes continuously of title, a good position in finders will not be able to be obtained.
There will be no positioning (top ranking, rankingpage...).

I think that the pages of the Web if they must change frequently, but not it main page.

Hi V@no.
I also installed the dynamic-Title-Hack (it works!  :) ), but I dont know how to proceed. :?: I like to use dynamic keywords and descriptions for the detail pages and perhaps fixed keywords/descriptions for special categories.

If I use these tags, the dynamic Informations comes from the random picture I use on the left side. In the main area theres displayed my main picture.
That means, that I dont can use the random picture? Or theres a way to take a new variable? I dont know how to do it. Can anybody help me?
