What does it do?¶
The goal of the core extension "seo" is to make sure basic technical Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is done right out of the box. Specific fields for SEO purposes are added, as well as the rendering of HTML meta tags in the frontend.
There are several things you can do to optimize your site for search engines. Some tasks are only solvable with good human writers, others are technical tasks, which just need to be implemented.
The goal of the extension seo is to help you with the following parts of your seo journey.
Give editors all the fields needed to set the necessary meta tags
Provide the rendering of meta tags in the frontend for SEO related information, to avoid reimplementing it again and again
Provide stable APIs for developers to give them the chance to change the behaviour when needed in edge cases
This manual will not cover all the developer information, as these are covered in the TYPO3 API documentation.
