New advanced page settings
by Steve Testone on December 28th, 2009

I just uploaded a new update to the site that should make several of you very happy. For a long time you've been wanting the ability to control certain SEO features on a page-by-page basis and now you can. When you are editing a page, you'll notice a new "advanced" button at the top. If you click on this, the page will flip over and reveal some new advanced settings that you can set and they'll only affect that page. Here are the things you can currently set:

  • Set a custom url for the page so it doesn't have to be the same as the page title.
  • Edit the pages title tag
  • Add custom keywords to the page
  • Create a custom page desription

These settings should greatly help you optimize your pages for search engines. Also, because we've separated the page title from the page url, you can now have foreign characters in your page titles and it should still create a valid url.

You are THE man. This is some seriously good news! Have been considering a move to wordpress because of this missing feature. Guess I won't need to now.

Hey Brendan, I am starting a new website creation and was wondering if you (or anyone who reads this you can) explain why this missing features are such a big deal. I am a novice in the SEO and website world. Thanks.

Cooper - happy to give you my take. In short, think of SEO on a per page basis. A search engine will return a list of web pages (not websites) that it thinks most closely match the search words entered. So, each of your pages must stand alone - that is be optimized individually. The above described addition makes that incredibly easy.

How can I post a Snappages blog link to Facebook and use the picture in the blog? It always pulls up my personal photo that is located in my header.
