Search Engine Results Meta Title (Custom Page Title) Meta Description (Custom Page Description)
<title>Page Title</title> The Title tag indicates the current pages title. <title> Title Text Goes Here </title> Out of the box SharePoint sets the site title and appends the page navigation name to the end of the site title Example: Site Title – Page Name Example Demo: http://www.wcspug.org
<meta name="description" content=" " /> Out of the box SharePoint doesn’t have a way for you to populate the page Description Meta Tag. Demo: Lets do a search for Western Carolinas SharePoint User Group
TO THE CODE! 1. Create Site Columns: Site Settings > Galleries: Site Columns > Create: MetaTitle(Single line of text) MetaDescription (Single line of text) 2. Hidden ASP Panel at the closing body tag to contain PlaceHolderPageTitle: <asp:Panel visible="false" runat="server"> </asp:Panel> 3. SEO Code Snippet: <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderMetaTags" runat="server"> <title runat="server"><SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property='MetaTitle' runat='server'/></title> <meta name="description" content="<SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property='MetaDescription' runat='server' />" /> </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
Please note! The only drawback is the next time you go to edit the master page you will need to replace Meta Description tag again before saving a new version of the master page. For some reason when you open & edit the master page the SharePoint:ListItemPropertyadds additional code that breaks the tag. Replace it with the clean code before saving the master page again. <meta name="description" content="<SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property='MetaDescription' runat='server' />" />
Meta keyword Should you still use Meta Keywords? NO! Not since the late 90’s. Meta Keywords Tag became very popular in the mid 90’s and were widely used and abused. A few years later search engines started enforcingstrict rules and ignoring Meta Keywords altogether because of the abuse and false search results from keyword spam. Meta Keywords Tag Example: <meta name="keywords" content="keywords, keyword, keyword phrase, etc."> Google and Yahoo completely ignore the Keywords Meta Tag. Microsoft Bing uses it to detect spammers and blocks them.
