There aren´t metas for manufacturers
« on: June 22, 2012, 19:22:03 pm »
Hi

I can´t see Meta (tittle, description and keywords) for manufacturers. Without this all manufacturers have exactly the same description and keywords and that´s not good for SEO. Google don´t like same metas for different urls

Thanks

As far as I know the manufacturer meta tag is not used in VM2 (If you would insert one, you have to make shure your usage complies with trademark rights).
However, if there is no manufacturer meta tag, it can't have the same description and keywords. Also, meta tags are not part of an url.

Hi jjk, thanks

Of course meta tags are not part of url, I meant "same metas for different pages (manufacturers)"

They have same meta because all manufacturers have the main meta of the webpage (I mean home metas)

To understand what I say the best you can do is see yourself. Go to one manufacturer then pres Ctrl + U, see metas, then another manufacturer Ctrl + U and compare.

Thanks

Sorry, I still don't know what you mean. VM2 doesn't produce manufacturer meta tags. (I don't see any, if I press Crrl+U) Each manufacturer page has a title tag (which is not a meta tag). The title tag currently is built from your Joomla site name and the manufacturer name. So, when you have only the manufacturer from the the VM2 sample data (named "Manufacturer") published, the word manufacturer will show up in every title tag.

Dracoteam, can you give example of well constructed (from meta/seo point) manufacturer page?
