How to change the metadata of your Joomla website?

The metadata of a website helps search engines to recognize its content easily and show it at the top positions of the search results.

The available settings you can edit are:
  • Site Meta Description: The description that will be shown in the search engines results. Ideal size up to 20 words.
  • Site Meta Keywords: The keywords that best describe your website separated with commas. These are used by search engines to display your website in the appropriate search results.
  • Robots: Choose what will the search engine robots do with your website.
    • Index, Follow: Index the website AND index links to other websites.
    • No index, follow: Do not index the website AND index links to other websites.
    • Index, No follow: Index the website AND do not index links to other websites.
    • No index, no follow: Do not index the website AND do not index links to other websites.
  • Content Rights: You can define the rights for those who want to use the content of your website.
  • Show Author Meta Tag: If you want to display the author as metadata in your articles.
