Web page metadata is important for site visibility and search engine optimisation (SEO). Luckily, the Commerce Vision CMS allows for easy maintenance of page metadata across your site, whether on products, news articles, or custom pages.

There are 3 main types of page metadata to consider: 

SEO UrlThe user- and search engine-friendly URL for the page.

Here's an example of these SEO settings in the real world.

Page TitleThe title that displays on search engine results pages, just above the URL. Also displayed in the title bar of the web browser when the user views the page.
Meta DescriptionThe blurb that displays under the Title and URL.
