Tag Meta ComponentPlugin

Tag Meta allows to efficiently manage all site's meta information. With Tag Meta, as example, it is possible to set the tag 'title' or the meta tags (e.g. from the most common 'description', 'keywords', 'robots', as well as the recently 'content rights' and 'external reference') or link 'canonical' on any page, just specifying the URL or a part of it. This provides a swiss army knife to improve site positioning in SEO optimization. But Tag Meta also supports regular expressions in the matching rules and this allows to match a group of URLs with a single rule. In this way it is possible to manage metadata from a single control panel.

Multiple rules can be applied together, so if more than a single rule matches with the current URL, these are applied in cascade using the ordering set, except if a rule is declared as ‘last one’ (in this case the process stop).

And that’s not all. Tag Meta comes with support for macros. This means that meta information can be generated dynamically for each page.

To allow complex transformations for data to use as meta info there are the placeholders. Placeholders allow you to define a set of values where each value is associated and identified by a name and is used in the definition of other placeholders or in the definition of meta info (practically they are based on the same principle of the variables in programming languages).

With support for link 'canonical' it is possible to specify the preferred version of a set of pages with highly similar content. But there is still other, Tag Meta comes with support for an ontology database of synonyms, that allows to automatically generate and add new synonyms of existing keywords in any page.

The plugin, finally, has some useful options to set custom global information like Generator, Author, Copyright, or to set and align the tag ‘title’ and the meta tag ‘title’ in many ways.

- Support for tag 'title' and meta tag 'description', 'author', 'keywords', 'robots', 'content rights', and 'external reference' on each page
- Support for Robots options Index, Follow, Snippet, Archive, Odp, and Image Index
- Support for link 'canonical'
- Support for global meta tag 'generator'
- Possibility to add site name to tag 'title'
- Possibility to align meta tag 'title' with tag 'title'
- Possibility to preserve tag 'title' on each rule from global settings
- Support for global meta tag 'author'
- Support for global meta tag 'copyright'
- Possibility to add a note for each item
- Possibility to apply multiple matching rules
- Use of regular expressions into matching rules
- Case-sensitive option on the matching source URLs
- Request only option to match the full URL or just the REQUEST_URI part
- Decode URL option to decode URLs before to check if match with rule
- Last rule option to break application of matching rule
- Support for placeholders
- Use of macros to specify meta info (dynamic meta info, 33 macros)
- Ontology database for synony

Hi. I was looking for a pluging to change the canonical path of only a few articles and Tag Meta solved the problem, but to keep Joomla canonical by default and change only a few articles, you have to buy the "Enterprise version". No problem, 9 euros is cheap, and it solved the problem. Thanks!

This is a very nice piece of work! You will need some basic knowledge of SEO to configure it. I lack that experience, but the support was excellent, and less than two hours from my forum entry the developer had personally entered my site and set the configuration perfectly! And now it works like a charm, this far in two languages, more is coming! Thank you!

I highly recommend this for improving your Joomla! SEO. Works perfectly, really flexible, and scalable and supports noindex, rel=canonical, nofollow etc... and does a really good job of it.

It took me a while to get the hang of targeting the URLs properly but this was my fault not the extensions. It is really well documented and I had no trouble finding the info to help me.

Being able to create a hierarchy of rules is also really handy.

This extension can help solve a lot of duplicate content issues. Great Extension.

Tag Meta really helped me close the gap in my SEO. It was easy to install and use. When I had a question, their support was there to help right away.

I couldn't be happier with the product.

The component is really good but, unfortunatily i cant say excellent.

I have use it for my site there is tree view menu like
main category
sub category

The problem is once i set meta, keyword, title for main category it apply to all of sub category and article also even i have add in sub category and article link but it's not affect only parent item meta, keyword and title get.

all other is working fine.

Owner's reply

This review is really good but, unfortunatily i cant say excellent.

This user doesn't know that Tag Meta supports regular expressions, and a dollar at the end can save your life.

So, we can assume that Tag Meta can do the job, the problem is with the user. An excellent user first RTFM, that ask for support (a forum exists), and finally post a review.

Thanks for using Tag Meta in a "basic mode".

I used it to add different keywords to individual products in a Virtuemart Shop.

With Joomla Core SEF, the keywords on each product are always the same (the ones chosen for the site), but thanks to Tag Meta, I managed to modify that.
Reviews: 1
N more needs to hack Joomla core to remove the tag "generator"(for security reasons!) and allows you to customize every page title at will. Long life to this component!
Recommended extension.
