Options in the SEO section

The commands in this section can be used to create a series of parameters that will help optimize Pages, activate the SiteMap, and, in the Pro version, speed up page loading times and activate robots.txt files.

Specifically, you can apply the following options:

Automatically create a SiteMap: this is active by default, and the SiteMap will be automatically created and linked.

For the SiteMap to be created correctly, you must enter a valid URL in the WebSite Address (URL) field in the Step 1 - Website Settings window.

The commands in the Tag 'Title' section allow you to define the format based on which you will compose the <Title> tags:

Tag Format for Site Pages: choose the values from the available lists that will be reproduced in the <Title> tag for the Site's Pages, as well as the character to use as a separator. By default, the <Title> tags for the Site’s Pages are written as "Title of the Page - Title of the Site".
Tag Format for Blog Articles: choose the values from the available lists that will be reproduced in the <Title> tags for the Blog Article Pages, as well as the character to use as a separator. By default, the <Title> tags for the Blog Article Pages are written as "Title of the Article - Title of the Blog - Title of the Site".

In the Tag 'H1..H6' section, you’ll find options for managing the header tags:

Automatic heading tag management: this option defines how <h1> and <h2> heading tags are to be handled when the website's page code is created. You can choose from:
None: none of the parameters set for the Pages will be automatically applied and the heading tags <h1> and <h6> can be managed manually.
H1 for page title: if the name assigned to the Page during the Map creation step or the Page Title used in the Page Properties window is made visible (see Text Style), it will be used as the value of the <h1> tag.
H1 for Website Heading and H2 for Page title: the value of <h1> tag will be the name of the Page, or if otherwise specified, the Page Title used in the Page Properties window, followed by a dash, then the Title of the site (<h1> = "Page Title - Site Title"). The <h1> tag is inserted in the Page code, and is attached to the Model's header. The name of the Page or the Page Title, without adding the name of the Site, is also reproduced as the value of the <h2> tag.
Set H1..H6 tag for the Template Headings: if this option is active, the <h1>..<h6> tags  will be applied to the texts associated to the corresponding Heading Styles.

To define the Heading Styles you need to use the functions available in the Text Style window. Once you choose a Style, you can apply it to a text while working in the text editor.

Meanwhile, the File size, section offers options for reducing page loading times and therefore improve users' navigation experiences:

Image Optimization: optimizes the project's images by reducing their dimensions. You can choose between different levels of compression. Minimal compression doesn't degrade images at all: other compression levels, on the other hand, may yield more significant results in terms of reducing file weights, but they'll also lead to progressive loss of image quality.
Enable file minification: during the project export phase, optimizing the project's JS and CSS files serves to make them smaller. In practice, this removes superfluous information that the file doesn't need in order to function, like spaces and line breaks, for example.
Enable gzip compression: sends files to be displayed in the browser using the gzip compression format, which speeds up the pages' loading times.

As well as enabling a statistics engine, you can also choose from the following options:

Verification metatag for Google Search Console: enter the control meta tag to use the Google Webmaster Central™ tools.

Include the robots.txt file: sets up the robots.txt file, which is used for indicating which contents in the site are to be excluded from search engine indexing. By default the instructions in the robots.txt file exclude the contents in some subfolders, such as Admin and Res, from indexing by all robots. You can edit the robots.txt file by hand or paste in new instructions.
