SEO Tips - Generating Video Page Meta Tags
« on: April 15, 2012, 11:36:42 AM »
To improve Search Engine ratings its best to use descriptive title, description and keyword META tag info.  The default video-watch.tpl does not do this but can easily be edited to accomplish this task.

Code: [Select]
{video var=$video videoid=$g_video_id}
{category var=$category id=$video.category_id}
{assign var=$comma_tags code=str_replace(' ', ',', $video.tags)}  {* Seperate the tags by commas *}
{template file=global-header.tpl video_watch="true" title=$category.name Sex: $video.title meta_description=$video.title XXX meta_keywords=$category.name,$comma_tags,xxx,video}

This code modifies the Page title by placing the category name and the text 'Sex:' before the normal video title, for descriptive purposes.

I also use the video title for the META descrition because the normal video description ( $video.description ) is usually too long to be of use.  To this, I add the text ' XXX'.

The generated META keyword tags also consists of the category name and a comma seperated list of the video tags, with the addition of the text ',xxx,video'

These changes should help you to improve you SE rankings overall with unique and easily generated Title, META Description and META Keyword information.
