System features

GrandNode allows you to handle the most important aspects of how search engines see your store.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Sitemaps

A special part of the store under /sitemap.xml (/sitemap) where you will find a full list of products, categories, topics, blog posts, system pages, in easy-to-understand XML format. In GrandNode you are able to manage multilingual sitemaps.

GrandNode supports including images in the sitemap. 

With the Custom URLs feature, you can add custom addresses that you've made and want to include in it. Just go to Admin panel -> Configuration -> Settings -> All settings (Advanced) and search for commonsettings.sitemapcustomurls.

How to get a sitemap in a specified language?

If you use GrandNode as a multi-language website, you are able to generate a sitemap in a specified language. To do that, please ensure that you have at least 2 languages, and configured search engine friendly names for it. Go to https://yourstore.com/sitemap.xml?seocode=en or https://yourstore.com/sitemap.xml?seocode=pl and that's all!

Meta-tags

Even if meta-keywords are ignored by all major search engines, it's reasonable to fill them. Meta-title and Meta-description are an important part of each website, search engines show them under your search result. 

Robots meta tag

The robots meta tags are used to control how individual page should be indexed in search results.

Out-of-the-box GrandNode Admin Panel is restricted from crawling and indexation. Similarly to contentless pages like shopping cart, registration, login page. You can manually manage the ignored sites with a robots.txt file. You can add new pages to it, directly from Admin panel -> System -> Developer tools -> Additions robots.txt  

Structured data

Homepage, catalog pages, product pages, blog section contain descriptions in JSON-LD Structured Data format. 

Structured data allows to correctly shows product data in the search engine. By product data I mean things like ratings, price, name, availability, etc.

Social Media Optimization (SMO)

Open-graph & Twitter tags

For more effective social media engagement, you are able to configure the OG & Twitter tags for your store. Out-of-the-box tags are generated automatically for homepage, products, you are able also to configure the main banner of the store, which will be added to social media posts when somebody will share your store.

Open Graph meta tags are snippets of code that control how your store is displayed when shared on social media. Basically, they’re part of Facebook’s Open Graph protocol and are also used by other social media sites, including LinkedIn and Twitter (if Twitter Cards are absent).

You can configure your Open-Graph image in Admin panel -> Configuration -> Settings -> General Settings.
