Recommendations for additional seo extensions¶
The TYPO3 core ships the whole API and the needed fields to have all necessary technical SEO.
Besides that, there are lots of tools you can use to optimize your rankings.
If you install additional SEO extensions in TYPO3 make sure you check the following recommendations:
The extension should stick to the core fields where possible
The extension should stick to the core behaviour where possible
The extension could extend TCA with additional helpers for your editors, like:
Keyword and content checks
Page speed insights
Some of these tools might need external services, others can work completely on-premise.
Recommendations for the description field¶
Current state of SEO research states that the description should be either lovely crafted by hand, or left out completely. (end of 2019)
