How do we utilize the SEO footer and header code on individual pages.

I use the SEO settings on the main page but as most of the pages on my websites could be stand alone articles should I be somehow utilizing the individual page SEO settings for header and footer code to pinpoint each page's individuality? If so how do I do this?

Hi, @Lorelei!

 

I definitely recommend filling out the Page Title, Page Description, and Meta Keywords on each page. However, you don't necessarily need to use the header and footer code on each page, especially if you've already entered Google Analytics on the site level on the Settings tab.

 

If you do a bit of searching, you can find tips on page-level (instead of site-level) SEO and Google Analytics code that you can insert here.

 

Thanks,

Yep, I have the top three complete but wondered if the bottom was a necessity when we already have it done through the main setting. Thank you for your response.

Nope! Not unless you just want that extra tracking.

Hi

I can't find information on weebly that enables me to use the header and footer codes, or that even explains what they are.

 

(If this was Shopify.com I am sure there would be a detailed blog article on how to use it.!)

 

Could you please provide a link to an explanation of how to use them. 

Yes, I have read SEO info elsewhere and I havent seen those terms.

 

thanks

Hey @OlivaryFineSoap!

 

Header and Footer code fields are meant for meta tags and special code that third party widgets often use.  For example, if you're verifying your site with Google you'll paste a meta tag into the Header Code field, or if you're including Google Analytics there will be script code that you paste there.

In that case, could you let me know, specifically, what the footer page is used for?

Some widgets require placing scripting right before the closing </body> tag of a page, so adding anything to the Footer Code field will place it there.

Are you not seeing those fields under SEO Settings for individual pages on the Pages tab?
