Just to let you guys know,

Meta Tags support will be added to Geeklog 1.6.1 when it comes out later this year for Stories, Staticpages, Topics and probably Polls. Default tags for the entire site and/or homepage can be set as well in the config panel.



Great! Please do not forget the Robots metatag Wink

The meta tags I have added are Description and Keywords.

I didn't think there would be much use for the Robots tag as people usually want all content indexed. The only time I used the tag is in the template for the printable story format.

When you say metta data, will this also include the ability to alter the page header at the very top of a web page for each story / static page etc ?

Well, there are more possibilities with the Robots tag, which are important sometimes, like 'noopd' and 'nosnippets'.

Especially these metatags are used if you start using the meta description, otherwise Google will still use the old snippets, or the (sometimes not so great) description from DMOZ...

Besides: I do not want the static pages which are used as a centerblock te be indexed...

I will have to look into the robots tag more then, maybe a drop down of available options for it?

I would need to review the robots tag with Dirk, etc.. to see if everyone else agrees with adding it.

You display centerblock staticpages on their own page as well?

Just a simple textfield would do, since multiples values can be added with a comma between: "nosnippet, noodp"

You display centerblock staticpages on their own page as well?

The metatags from static pages have to overrule the topic metatags if the static page is placed as centerblock on top of a page, or on the whole page, I think. Not really necessary since the topics have metatags (in GL 1.61).

If somebody is digging into these things, it might be nice to have a look at static pages (or plugins) which are placed as a centerblock in the middle or the bottom of a page. They should not be found by the search function in that case I believe. In 99% of the cases, centerblocks are not assumed to be read as a separate page and could give duplicate results, and duplicate content (and also should have no-index robots meta tags by default, when placed in the middle or bottom of a page). A checkbox in the page editor "not indexed by search function" would do the trick (almost) perhaps.
