Extension

The Add HTML Meta and Title extension allows for easier SEO (search engine optimization) with MediaWiki. It is based in part on the extension MetaKeywordsTag.

Usage[edit]

When you enter the following in a wiki page:

<seo title="word1,word2" metakeywords="word3,word4" metadescription="word5,word6" google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />

...or the shorter...

<seo title="word1,word2" metak="word3,word4" metad="word5,word6" google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />

...these words are added to the HTML title and meta headers. This makes SEO (search engine optimization) with MediaWiki easier.

For example, the above would become:

<title>word1,word2 - Wiki Name</title>         (the string "word1,word2" replaces page title)
<meta name="keywords" content="word3,word4" />
<meta name="description" content="word5,word6" />
<meta google-site-verification="123456789-abfd123456" />

(This is a new meta tag - existing metas are left untouched.)
