Introduction

To make your online video platform easily searchable in the Google search, you need to do Search Engine Optimization or SEO. If you implement SEO for your website, then people can easily find your website and video content in popular search engines like Google. There are two sections for which you need to set up SEO variables. 1. Dynamic Page 2. Static Page.

 

Setting Up SEO Variables for Dynamic Pages

In order to set up the SEO variables for Dynamic Page, in your Muvi CMS, go to “Marketing "-->"SEO

 

 

In the Dynamic Page section, you can set the SEO variables for “Content Pages”, “Content Listing Pages” and "Product Details Pages". (See Below Screenshot).

  • In the Title field,  the system variable "$ContentName" will take the content name as Meta Title by default. If you want to change the title then you can type a different title.  
  • In the Description field the system variable "$ContentName" will take the name of the content as Meta Description by default. If you want to change the description then  type a brief description about the content
  • In the Keywords field the system variable"$ContentName"  will pick the name of the content as keyword for the content automatically. If you wish to change the keyword  then type a separate keyword. You can also type multiple keywords separated by comma. (Choose keywords that your users will type to find the content easily in the search engines. For example, you can use the name of the content, type of the content etc. as your keyword. If you are using multiple Keywords, then each keyword should be separated by comma (,))
  • Select the check box “Set Meta Tags Specific to Each Page” to set “Meta Tags” to specific page. (By adding Meta Tags to content will make the content easily searchable on the search engines)

If you wish you can change the title for the page (For example if it is Home Page, then you can write Home – Muvi.com, Home – Muvi etc. For About us and Terms of Use page the Title will be “About us” and “Terms of Use”.)
  • In the “Description” field of the Home Page the system variable $BusinessName will pick the description by default.
