Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

...

A content item can have a meta description that summarizes the content item. This information does not appear on the content item itself but can be recognized and processed by a search engine. In the search results, the search engine displays the first 25 or so words (depending on the search engine) of the description below the clickable link to the content item. For best results, the summary should be as direct and concise as possible. To add a Meta Description, enter the text in the Meta Description text field and then click [Apply].
Note: When upgrading to XperienCentral versions 10.13.0 and higher, the text in the "Lead" field, if any, is duplicated in the Meta Description field.A website can contain metadata keywords related to its content. These keywords are invisible to website visitors but they can be recognized and processed by search engines. The metadata consists of a list of keywords related to the content of the website. There is disagreement about the usefulness of metadata keywords: Some in the industry believe that search engines tend to ignore the keywords and look at the actual content of the website instead. Nevertheless, you can add metadata keywords in XperienCentral that are applied at the website level as well as at the page level.
To add keywords that will only be used on the current page, select "Use own keywords for this article" and type the keywords, separated by commas, in the text field. When finished, click [Apply].

URL Title

The title to use in the friendly URL. For complete information on friendly URLs, see Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

PropertyDescription
HTML titleBy default, XperienCentral shows the title of the page that appears in the <title> HTML tag. If you want to override the default page title, you can do so by adding a different title that will be used for the page. To override the HTML title of a page, enter a string in the "HTML title" text field.
Alternative PathFor web pages, you can specify an alternate URL path that is used in the active friendly URL. This allows you to reference the web page via a path that does not necessarily exist in your website's navigation structure. Just as the friendly URL for a page is constructed using the relative path (based on the navigation tree) plus the title of the page, the friendly URL of a page with an alternate URL path is constructed using the alternate URL path plus the title of the page. The alternate URL path begins after the '/web' part of the friendly URL. To add an alternate path, enter a string in the "Alternative Path" text field.
