How to Edit the SEO in the non-article page?

Post by clairewang » Sun Jul 07, 2019 10:23 am

Dear all,

I use Screaming Frog and found that many non-article pages have duplicated, too short, or wrong H1, Page Title, Meta Description which are bad to SEO. These pages are login, product list, checkout, or whatever pages. How to edit those SEO information to make it qualified in Screaming Frog? Thank you so much.

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the SEO Forum.

Page Title and Meta Description is set in the Menu Item.

You don't need login and checkout indexed in Google. Exclude them in robots.txt.

Thank you a lot for your reply. Is it fine for SEO that I don’t exclude in robot.txt?
If yes, how to write code in robot.txt?

Thank you a lot for your answer. If I don’t do exclusion in robot.txt, will SEO be going bad?

There is a template for the robots.txt file delivered with Joomla as robots.txt.dist. You have to rename the file to enable it.
