Introduction

Site Management

This Joomla (1.5/1.6/1.7/2.5/3) plugin simply takes the starting chunk of text from the page’s content and applies that as the value for the meta description tag in the page’s head. Search engines often use a Web page’s meta description in the SERPs, and as such it is important that these meta descriptions have relevant text related to the page’s content.

  • Get this

NOTE: This plugin generates the meta data "on the fly" when the page is loaded, it does not save the meta data to the content's meta data fields seen in the Joomla editor. These fields can then be used to override the auto-generated meta description generated by this plugin. To see the plugin at work, you must view your page's source in your browser.

** SEOSimple 2.0 Features **

** Ability to customize how the front page meta description is handled. You can choose between having it auto generated based on the front page's content, or using the default Joomla site-wide meta description.
** HTML page title configuration. Set your page titles in three different ways:
1. [CONTENT TITLE] | [SITE NAME]
2. [SITE NAME] | [CONTENT TITLE]
3. [CONTENT TITLE] (Joomla 1.5 default)
You can also customize what the separator is (in this ex. it's a pipe |, but can be any character).

** Additionally, you can customize the front page of your site's title tag in a number of different ways (or not at all). Layouts include:

[Disable - Use Joomla Default]
[Custom Title] | [Site Title]
[Site Title] | [Custom Title]
[Custom Title]
[Site Title]
[Site Title] | [Default Title] NEW
[Default Title] | [Site Title] NEW
[Custom Title] | [Default Title] NEW
[Default Title] | [Custom Title] NEW

** NEW in 2.0 We have added the ability to set your category pages to "noindex, follow" -- a common meta robots setting for such pages to avoid duplicate content penalties.

All feedback is greatly appreciated and will go towards making future versions even better. Enjoy!

I have just finished a website with a lot of article and when it came the time to add all the meta tags i found this great extension. Worked out of the box and generated really appropriate tags for the pages. the only problem is that i can't give more than five stars!


We have realized that numerous articles on our site had no meta whatsoever. This free plugin does good job at producing correct meta data. Instead of numerous hours of correcting issue or go into paid solutions - this developer had an interesting approach to create meta. Script is strong. Thank YOU!!!


Does it job like a charm

A very useful extension. I have now proper search results.



Besides it works for J3+ though produces a number of strict warnings' because of some deprecated code standards. But this doesn't matter for a production web-site as PHP warnings should be disabled. Removig calls by reference like &JFactoy -> JFactoy solves this minor issue.


Great extension
