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

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.)
