How important is is that we fill all four fields in? Does it make a difference? And what exactly should we put into these four fields for maximum benefit?

 

Meta Title

Custom SEO URL Path

Meta Keywords

Meta Description

Depends on the admin Store Settings, Search Engines tab, Global Meta Data Behaviour setting: Disabled, Merge, or Replace.

 

If Replace, and there is incomplete meta data for the content being shown, you might not get any data for that meta field.

 

If you do not enter a custom seo path, Cubecart will construct one for you.

 

Because I am an seo-atheist, I have no idea what to put in these fields "for maximum benefit."

The "best" setting for the Global Meta Data Behaviour is Replace as this gives you the chance to enter specific information for each page (category, product, document etc) but it means entering this information for EVERY one of them.

Some are vital as below ! What to put into these fields for maximum benefit is the holy grail of SEO optimisation and not something that can be covered in a simply reply (or a whole book for that matter!)

Meta Title - Vital as the most important SEO tag

Custom SEO URL Path - not necessary but depends on how you have named your categories, products, documents etc

Meta Keywords - not at all important as not used by any of the main search engines

Meta Description - Important especially if done correctly. If not then Google for one, will create their own meta description for you

Thanks
