  • Meta descriptions;
  • Meta keywords;
  • Meta robots;
  • Image alt and title.


Specify URL for any page and add metadata for it to make page indexation seamless. When creating dynamic templates for any page by URL, you can modify the following:

  • Meta title;
  • Meta description;
  • Keywords;
  • H1 tag;
  • Canonical Url;

  • Text after a product list.


Use Complex Variables

Do you use provider attributes for some items, and for others — brand or manufacturer attributes? Then, this feature may come in handy. So, for products with provider attribute, provider values will be used for meta tags; for products with manufacturer attribute, manufacturer values will be used, etc.


Start Separate Templates Based On Your Needs

You can manually specify templates for descriptions and meta tags. Add separate templates for each store views: this way you can translate templates into various languages you use on your websites.

  • Attributes: {color}, {brand}, {price}, etc;
  • Store info: {store_view}, {store}, {website};
  • Categories info: {category}, {categories}, {final_price}, {final_price_incl_tax};
  • for grouped products:{startingfrom_price} and {startingto_price};
  • for category pages with pager: {current_page}.

If some of your items don’t have variables specified in the template, it won’t ruin seamless work of the Meta Tags Templates extension for Magento 1. This extension has an “optional variables” feature.  If only some of your items have a {color} variable, you can use square brackets [ ] to mark such optional variables. They will be processed only if products use attributes contained within a specified variable.


Keep In Check With SEO Limitations

Google does not 'like' very long meta tags, so it is very important to make sure they are right. It is recommended not to exceed 65 characters for meta title and 160 characters for Magento meta description.


Customize Selected Items

Set an individualized meta description for a specific product if you don’t want it to be affected by the category settings. 


Prevent Errors

Sometimes you need to update information on a product — for example, change color from black to green; or modify brand, or tech specs. With the help of this extension for Magento, there is no need to manually update metadata. This way meta information will always be correct.
