  4. Configure settings as described below:

    Field Description
    Page Header Tags Add HTML <meta> tags to add to the <head> of the page.

    Example: <meta name="keywords" content="CMS, Liquid Content, example">

    Sitemap Priority Set the priority for the page (0 to 1.0; default is 0.5). This value helps search engines to rank the page relative to other pages in the site.

    Allow Indexing

    If enabled (On), the ROBOTS meta tag is set to INDEX to indicate that search engines should index the page; i.e., <meta name="ROBOTS" content="INDEX" />.

    Otherwise if set to Off, the ROBOTS meta tag is set to NOINDEX, and search engines ignore the page from being indexed.

  5. Click Save.

 

Testing

  1. If successful, the following message will pop-up:

    pageupdate.jpg
  2. If you have modified the page header tags or allow indexing:
    • Right-click inside the page.
    • Select Inspect from the browser menu. 
    • Look for the added script or find the Robots Meta tag.
  3. If you have modified the page priority:
    • Access the site's sitemap by going into SITEURL/sitemap.aspx to check the priority values of the page.
