What are meta tags, and why do I need them?

  • Meta tags include meta titles and meta descriptions, which are HTML elements that summarize your page's website content on the search results page. 
  • Attention-grabbing, value-packed meta titles and descriptions entice users to click on your search result over competitors. Improving your click-through rate can have positive impacts on your ranking and bring more potential customers to your site. 

Note: If your page doesn't contain a meta description, Google will either pull one in from your page’s first paragraph or what they consider most relevant to users. To control what is displayed, uploading your own meta description is a must!

How do I generate meta titles and descriptions?

Learn more about how to manage your meta tags here. Generate them for individual products or in bulk!

Tip: To ensure your content is crawled by search engine bots, make sure your meta title and description is unique for every page on your website.

For best visibility on Google search results pages, we recommend meta titles be under 60 characters and meta descriptions be under 160 characters.

Can I export or publish meta tags directly to my storefront? 

Yes! Your meta tags can be published to your storefront and will be included in CSV exports.
