Oscommerce doesn't come withmeta tags. You have to install them by installing one of the meta tags contributions like Header Tags.

The idea behind adding title and meta tags is to help with the search engines.. Adding the tags to just the index page will not make much of a difference in that regard.

Jack is right. Of the various contributions that add Meta Tag capability to your site I personally prefer Header Tags Controller. It's not dynamic, you do have to add the tags yourself - but that's also the benefit, because you can 'tweak' them later on to get better results.

hey,

 

Open up you catalog/index.php files and search for 'meta'

 

should show the following

 

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php echo CHARSET; ?>">

<title><?php echo TITLE; ?></title>

 

 

You will have to enter inbetween the coding above.

<META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="your keywords">

<META NAME="Description" CONTENT="your description">

<META NAME="Author" CONTENT="your email">

 

To check it worked properly go to this site to analyze ur Meta tags

I'm sorry, but the idea of adding meta tags manually to the static root level pages won't do anything for Search Engine Optimisation. None of the cPaths to Product Info pages will have meta tags (except for what you set up for the non-dynamic elements of the homepage) - and it's product Meta Tags that you want Search Engines to pick up on.

 

So, you need to install either dynamic meta tags or header tags controller, and I've already posted above which of those two I think is the best option.

Thanks for the quick response.

i know this sounds a little wet, but i have no iea about adding the dynamic meta tags.

I am all new to this and i am a step by step guy.

 

Thanks for the advice.

Is it fairly straightforward to do?

 

If so-how do i start?

Start by following the links above to Community --> Contributions, then look at the Most Popular Downloads and you'll see 'Header Tags Controller' listed at number 4 on that list. Download the file to your computer, unzip it, and then take a good look at the Install instructions.
