Installation

Add this to your composer.json and run composer update:

{
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "git",
            "url": "https://github.com/ttreeagency/Ttree.Plugin.Seo.git"
        }
    ],
    "require": {
        "ttree/plugin-seo": "dev-master"
    },
}

Configuration

Include the TypoScript file NodeTypes.ts2 in your site's TypoScript:

include: resource://Ttree.Plugin.Seo/Private/TypoScripts/Library/NodeTypes.ts2

How to use the plugin ?

Use the TS2 object 'Ttree.Plugin.Seo:MetaTags' to generate the HTML meta tags.

How to generate your page title ?

You can use the object 'Ttree.Plugin.Seo:PageTitle' to generate your page title. By the default the page title contain the current page title, with a static suffix. You need to add this snippet to your Page TS2:

page = Page {
        head {
                title = Ttree.Plugin.Seo:PageTitle {
                        @position = 'after characterSetMetaTag'
                }
        }
}

You can change the static part of the title, in your TS2, like this:

prototype(Ttree.Plugin.Seo:StaticPageTitle) {
        value = 'your company - fixed suffix'
}

If you need a static prefix, even if it's not a good practice in term of SEO, use this TS2:

prototype(Ttree.Plugin.Seo:PageTitle) {
        value = ${this.staticTitle + " - " + this.pageTitle}
}

Has we use EEL for processing the value of the title, more complex configurations can offer a lots of flexibility.

Per exemple you have a specific Node Type for you blog post, you can prefix all the blog page with a specific static prefix, like this:

prototype(Ttree.Plugin.Seo:PageTitle) {
        @process.blog = ${q(documentNode).is('[instanceof Ttree.Plugin.Blog:Blog]') ? 'Blog - ' + value : value}
}

You need a more specific title for your page ?

By default the PageTitle object use the node title, the same used for your navigation menu. In some case you need a more specific title. In this case you can use the inspector, in the group "SEO / Generic", fill the property "Title". This title will be used for the HTML page title tag, Opengraph and Twitter Card. In the group "SEO / OpenGraph" and "SEO / Twitter Card", if you fill the property title, you can target this property.

How to generate your page meta tags ?

You just need to update your TS2, like this:

page = Page {
        head {
                metaTags = Ttree.Plugin.Seo:MetaTags {
                        @position = 'after characterSetMetaTag'
                }
        }
}

How to generate a Twitter Card

To enable Twitter Card rendering, go to the Inspector Group "SEO / Twitter Card", and check "Enable Twitter Card". By default the card will use the page Title and extract automatically a teaser for the current page, by using the TS2 Object "Ttree.Plugin.Seo:DocumentTeaser". You can provide a custom title and description if needed. Take care to fill the field "Site" and "Creator" to have a valid Twitter Card.

How to force the rendering of a Twitter Card

In some case, like for a blog post, you need the force the rendering of the Twitter Card. For this to work you need a specific Node Type for this kind of Document. You can use this TS2 snippet to force the rendering of the Twitter Card:

prototype(Ttree.Plugin.Seo:TwitterCard) {
        hasTwitterCard.@process.event = ${q(documentNode).is('[instanceof Ttree.Plugin.Blog:Blog]') ? TRUE : value}
}

How to force the content for the property Site and Creator

prototype(Ttree.Plugin.Seo:TwitterCardAbstract) {
        twitterSite = '@ttreeagency'
        twitterCreator = '@dfeyer'
}
