Because SEO works in accumulative way, you'd better start your SEO right now.
Basic SEO 1 - Meta tags
It is always good to check where we are now before going ahead. You can check your as-is meta tags here.
For example, meta tags of this page looks like this.
Title came from the title of this page.
Description came from the first text of this page.
Image is not set properly
Which doesn't look good at all. Let's make it better.
Optimize meta tags
Setting up meta tags with code block
Then, you can see your to-go meta tags like this.
For the sake of simplicity, let's start with. Copy and paste it into the code block of Notion page, like following(the type of code block should be ).
<head> <!-- Primary Meta Tags --> <title>Start SEO of your course with Notion</title> <meta name="title" content="Start SEO of your course with Notion"> <meta name="description" content="You can learn how to do the very basic of SEO of your course with Oopy 2.0 Beta, without leaving Notion."> </head>
Note that I added <head> tags around pasted meta tags
Now, place the block at the top of this page(just below the title) like the following image.
And it's done. Oopy handles the code block at the top as special one, and apply the content of the code block to the page. After a few minutes, refresh your website and you can see updated meta tags.
Setting og:image with free image hosting
You can set your sharing image, which is called og(open graph) image, as you want.
Visit the link in 2. andfrom the page
Addtag to your code block at the top the page with the content of copied image link in 3.
<head> <!-- Primary Meta Tags --> <title>Start SEO of your course with Notion</title> <meta name="title" content="Start SEO of your course with Notion"> <meta name="description" content="You can learn how to do the very basic of SEO of your course with Oopy 2.0 Beta, without leaving Notion."> <meta property="og:image" content="https://i.ibb.co/RSMdSt3/22cc3a19c68e6f35ba3225b0343c1a23.png"> </head>
I added meta tag of og:image
Basic SEO 2 - Clean URL
Setting up clean URL with code block
Create code block, type of
add clean URL like following.
I created meta tags and clean URL of this page with code blocks above. That means, I can manage them along with my content in Notion. In other words, I have less distraction. Which means, I can spend more time on creating content.
We've done with the first step of this course. In the next step, we are going to learn how to manage permission and set a paywall.
