Add SEO to "all collection" page

Highlighted

Hi,
To begin with, let me tell you that you do not need to worry about this. Actually what happens is that Shopify creates an “all collection” page automatically or by default and it assigns the Meta Information of the Homepage of your web store to this “all collection” or  “/collections” page.

Therefore, you have to optimize your Homepage which will consequently optimize the “all collections” page.

To optimize your Homepage, go to the “Online Store” section of your Shopify store. Within this, you will see a subsection named “Preferences”. Clicking on this will direct you to the optimization space for your Homepage.

Hope this helps!

Aside from what they mention about SEO Plugin for Shopify website: You have to work for Google Webmaster because I believe that it hasn't indexed yet your collections. You need to reindex your website wait the changes on Search Engine Result.

Hi Lilith,

I hope you don't mind me jumping on board with this.

I'm using supply theme and added the code to theme liquid.  The edited title and meta description is successfully showing up on the collections-list page and that page only but the homepage title and meta description is also still there. I'd be grateful for any input you could offer.view source collections page.JPG

@Glad2bee Thanks for the screenshot on the source code there. Definitely helps to see the code!

 

Did you use the If/Then code in your theme to add the meta descriptions?

 

If you did, there might be something that could need a bit of a tweak to ensure that the correct metadata shows up. If you'd like to share the code you added our Shopify Community might be able to view what might be happening there.

 

I do also recommend working with some of the apps I mentioned in an earlier post or working 1:1 with one of our partners in the Experts Marketplace that can dive right into your code to make sure it's working exactly the way you need it.

Thank you so much for the reply Lilith.

I placed the code as follows. Edit code → Layout → Theme.liquid.

between <head> and </head> .

I placed following code :

{% if template == 'list-collections' %}

<title>Collections &ndash; Organicules  IE</title>

<meta name="description" content="Shop Organicules natural beauty products here. From shampoo and conditioner bars, natural deodorants and soaps to bath bombs and body scrubs. " />

{% else %}

{% endif %}

 

just in front of this code:

<title>
{{ page_title }}{% if current_tags %}{% assign current_tags_joined = current_tags | join: ', ' %} &ndash; {{ 'general.meta.tags' | t: tags: current_tags_joined }}{% endif %}{% if current_page != 1 %} &ndash; {{ 'general.meta.page' | t: page: current_page }}{% endif %}{% unless page_title contains shop.name %} &ndash; {{ shop.name }}{% endunless %}
</title>

{% if page_description %}
<meta name="description" content="{{ page_description | escape }}">
{% endif %}

 

Thank you again

Hi there,

 

I have read all of your conversations and i have the same problem that i want to change meta-description of every single page and when i go to page i'm unable to find it. like, Products page, collections.

 

So in this case i don't to change my seo through liquid code, because which is not feasible for everyone. Is there any free plan app that you'll recommend me for changing my pages SEO ?

 

Thanks and Regards.

 

UsamaSubzwari.
