About Smart SEO

Cut down the time you spend SEO optimizing your Shopify store by more than 80%.

No need to enter meta tags or alt tags for every entity in your store. The Smart SEO app will generate them for you.

Provide structured data to Google and other search engines via JSON-LD to enhance search results.

Manage your store sitemap directly in Smart SEO and choose which pages to include or exclude

  • New JSON-LD support added. Now you can provide structured data to Google and other search engines automatically to improve your search results. The structured data generated by Smart SEO is the most complete among all SEO apps for Shopify. For example, Smart SEO will generate structured data for every product on your collection pages.
  • New Alt Tags support added. Smart SEO is the only app for Shopify to generate your alt tags instantly. With other apps, you might need to wait in queue for hours, even days for your alt tags to be generated. And then you might need to wait the same time every time you need to sync your alt tags. Smart SEO indexes your products only once and then generates your alt tags instantly. It also syncs your alt tags automatically when you add new products and images.
  • New store sitemap support added. Now you can manage your store sitemap from within Smart SEO.

Suppose you want to have the following meta title for all product pages in the Women -> Hats collection: "{product-title} from {vendor} at {price} only at {store-name}."

To achieve this you would need to enter this information for every hat in the Womens -> Hats collection. For example "Casual Hat from New Era at $15 only at MyStore".

You would probably want to optimize the alt tags for the products too. For example, you might want to have all your alt tags follow this template: "{product-title} {variant-option} from {vendor} at {price}", which in our case would translate to the following alt tag: "Casual Hat Size S from New Era at $15".

The meta description is another tag, which would need a similar optimization. Now imagine that you have to do this not only for your product pages but also for your collection, blog and article pages.

JSON-LD structured data is a must nowadays for every successful website. Unless you are familiar with liquid and javascript, it would be hard for you to add the JSON-LD data that you need on your store pages.

From within Shopify you cannnot manage your store sitemap but with Smart SEO you can easily do this and choose which pages to include or exlude.

With the Smart SEO app you no longer need to spend your valuable SEO optimization resources on tasks that can be automated. Smart SEO is powerful, yet flexible enough to generate meta tags, alt tags and JSON-LD structured data which both you and search engines will love.

Edit 2: Days later and 3 different Shopify experts later and the app will still not actively update my Alt Tags. Milen replied back that the app was working to the Shopify experts and then I double checked to find it did not. We want it to add the following fields: ${title} ${product-type} ${vendor} ${shop-name} ${tags}
However, it only adds ${title}

The fever meter mentioned before is just the saving of your template. What we think happens next is it goes back to Smart SEO's server in queue and may update at a later time. What we think is not happening is the SEO script may not like certain image types. We use tried and true .jpg's or maybe it's something else. Either way Milen only replies the next day so the issue drags on. Especially when he states he fixed it but we go in and inspect the element of the image and see it has only added the title of our product not the rest.
----------------------
Edit: Two days later and two Shopify customer support help later we still cannot get the App to automatically add Alt Tag information on images. It did work for 2 of the 4 new products we put on. The second Shopify rep was able to repair the missing Favicon that vanished after the install. We've sent three or four service requests and are waiting to hear back. By updating this review we hope Milen can help us get this last crucial piece of the App to work for us.

We've spent the better part of two days figuring this out but are flummoxed on how to get the Image Alt Tags portion to work. Since we were able to get the other sections to work we are at a loss as to what we are doing wrong. We have even uninstalled and reinstalled. Most of the help email replies are canned responses and since their location is in Bulgaria they only reply to us early in the morning.

Update: We do know that the only time the app seems to index is upon initial install. It does one 5 minute sweep of your site. So then when you edit your templates and hit save it seems to give a false fever meter of updating because when we try to view the images on our website they DO NOT show the updates. Spending so much time with the few admin tools we really want this to work but feel we are missing some intuitive features.

Next Update: We discovered that the only way we could get the Image Alt Tags to work was by using the item by item selection feature. Simply selecting the whole collection of items didn't seem to work. The information is buried in the source of the img file which is much different than other Alt Tag tools that all you have to do is mouse over the image and the words you picked are there. To sum it up it does work but it appears to be a very manual process. I really hope new products don't have to be individually check box added otherwise our time with Smart SEO will be a brief one.

Hi Guys,

We did reply to your other tickets, even recorded a video for you. Your ticket for the alt tags was submitted at 1AM this morning so really we haven't had a chance to reply. And yes we are in Bulgaria which is 7 hours ahead of New York and I believe more hours ahead of you but we do strive to provide top-class support despite this. And we do have Zendesk template emails but I think they are 100% relevant when being sent to customers otherwise we will not send them.

I will request a collaborator account to your store so that we can setup the app for you but in the mean time I would like to clear out some misunderstandings:

1. The app starts indexing your images once you go to the ALT tags page. It does this only once. From there on, webhooks monitor changes to the products and the app updates everything automatically.

2. The fever meter is not false. Smart SEO writes everything in liquid, this is why it is so fast. It does not use the Shopify API to write the tags, which is extremely slow and which you can see with other apps. The fever meter gives progress for the update of the liquid files. Roughly 10 calls are made to the Shopify API and these calls finish in constant time 90% of the time. This is why you might think that it is false but in fact I can guarantee it isn't. But I am flattered that you are saying this because it does prove that the app works way faster than the users expect.

3. I am not sure what you mean by the "the information is buried...". Please note that an alt tag is part of the img HTML tag. So regardless of the app, the alt tags are written in the same way.

In any case we will be happy to setup your app and explain how you can manage it.

Thanks,

Milen
