Some Common SEO mistakes in Magento Store
Home page title name “Home”
As an SEO Executive when I see the homepage title “Home”, I feel irritation. How people could such kind of common mistakes? If you are dealing with the Magento store then go to the CMS page and change the title of the page.
Red Signal “Default Description”
Check your Store’s description field, is it default? Then it would be a red signal for you. Go to System -> Configuration -> General -> Design -> HTML Head -> Default description and change the description as per your store. See the below image...!!!
Meta rel=canonical is not turning on:
Want to save your website from the duplicate content issues. Always turn on rel=canonical for all products as well as category.
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/product-name/" />
Title and Logo name “Magento Commerce”
The logo is very much important for any website and it is in the top left side of the website. The name of the logo should be the name of the website and what I can see that most of site’s logo name “Magento Commerce”. That’s not fair for the Magento Store owners.
Sample products and categories in sitemap.
I have seen lots of Magento stores sitemap with the sample product and categories. Please remove sample products and categories from sitemap before submitting it on Google.
