MarkupSEO - The all-in-one SEO solution for ProcessWire.

@teppo: To be honest: I didn't think about that... Maybe I'm switching to create real fields so multilanguage will be easier, too. Have to think about it later today :)

Maybe it can steal an idea from Ryans table field - have its own table.

Or, it could also have its own PW page structure, effectively a "related" page to the current page, that is stored under admin somewhere in the same way repeaters are.

Though I think a single table might be more efficient, query wise.

However, just to change my mind again, the other day I put on my own site drop downs for Open Graph page type (article and so on) and the same for twitter. I did those with a page field so I have started with the most common five or six, but can add more on the fly as normal with a page-field. Useful functionality for this kind of thing.

So, maybe a mix! :)

I'm implementing a custom field type based on Ryan's Event field type that uses a custom table for storage.

I have compared performance to other methods like using a pages field. And the custom table field is much much faster, both when saving and querying values. So I'd recommend going with the custom table field following Ryan's Event field type module.

@jmartsch The title field is actually good as you can use it as a browser title field which can differ from the page title or an ulr pathsegment etc.

As @lisandi said. 

An example:

Your page's title is "About".

You use "<h2>$page->title</h2>" in your template but you want to have a different description on Google results like "Learn more about the team." 

Just use the title field to archive that.

   What an awesome module, the features in it are perfect. One thing I am noticing though is that the module seems to be a bit finnicky with images that are limited to 1 not on the current page, as the image preview function appears to call first() on the image field regardless to it's existance on the page.

Error: Call to a member function first() on a non-object (line 326 of home/swflemin/public_html/dg/site/modules/MarkupSEO/MarkupSEO.module) 

if($this->imageSmart && $pageDataDefault['image'] == '' && @$this->page->get(implode('|', $this->imageSmart))->first()->url != '') $mixedData['image'] = $this->page->get(implode('|', $this->imageSmart))->first()->url;

Looks to be the culpret. Could I get a hand modding this here?

Great Piece.

I've done something like that with textfields and FieldsetTab. But a Out of the Box Solution is quite nice.

A client had requested once, a SEO traffic light, which checks different basic things like the Title, Image Description, Keyword Density, List of the actual keywords in the existing text etc.

In my opinion you can achieve this as well with a small SEO cheatsheet and a bit brainpower. But on the other hand, it might be helpful for user, with less Web/Seo Knowledge.

Would something like that be possible? Or is something like that already in your mind?

I'm very excited about this module. Thanks galore Nico.  I need all the help I can get w/ SEO. This is a boon.
 
From my reading, I agree with a prior comment that the automatic rendering should not be at the bottom of <head>, so I set the method to "manual", and tried to use
 

<?php echo wire('page')->seo->render; ?>

 long-hand toward the top of head.  It smoked!
 
In your ready() function,

$this->method == 'auto'  

should not be a condition for initializing the front-end hooks.

Thanks.

Thanks for feedback! How would you initialize the hooks?


@ole: If I find the time I will update my to-do list and add some more features. I think I need to restructure it first to make it more flexible again.

In my copy, this is what it looks like now. I don't know whether I'm missing something. I haven't created a module w/ hooks like this yet.

public function ready() {
		// backend hooks
		$editedPage = wire('pages')->get($this->config->input->get->id);
		if(@$this->page->process == 'ProcessPageEdit' && !in_array((string)$editedPage->template, $this->excludedTemplates)) {
			$this->addHookAfter("ProcessPageEdit::buildFormContent", $this, 'addSEOTab');
			$this->addHookBefore("ProcessPageEdit::execute", $this, 'saveSEOTab');
		}
		
		// frontend hooks
		
		// if($this->method == 'auto' && $this->page->template != 'admin') {
		if($this->page->template != 'admin') {
			$this->addHookProperty("Page::seo", $this, 'hookFrontendPage');
			$this->addHookProperty("Config::seo", $this, 'hookFrontendConfig');
		}
	}

Actually, why are you even explicitly skipping the 'admin' template if you have a mechanism for excluding templates in place and the 'admin' one is added by default?

Then, maybe, this is it:  It works, not stress-tested...

// frontend hooks

if (!in_array((string)$this->page->template, $this->excludedTemplates))  {
    $this->addHookProperty("Page::seo", $this, 'hookFrontendPage');
    $this->addHookProperty("Config::seo", $this, 'hookFrontendConfig');
}
?

Well I'm stumped, I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work with my site's images as many are set to one, and many pages don't contain the images that are referred to in the module. Looks like I'll be waiting for the next release :).

Hi Nico,

great idea, this spares quite some time to set this up individually.

One question about "Keywords". Do you mean the Keywords Meta Tags?

Google says they don't use it any more: 

http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/keywords-meta-tag-in-web-search/

Some of our clients had a wrong idea of SEO when spending a lot of time end efforts with littering the SEO keywords meta tag with all sorts of words, instead of using their energy on other SEO more relevant topics, like a carefully chosen title and a good summary. So we stopped offering that field. :-)

This is (in German) what Meta Tags Google uses:

http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=de&answer=79812

EDIT:

A given "Focus Keyword" for a page might be a good source for your planned suggestion tool, the WP Plugin SEO YOAST seems to use it that way.

Well yeah it creates the keywords field. I've never been that deep in SEO so I thought this field would still be relevant. :)

Thanks for the tip with the Focus Keyword !

If you try to get clever and stuff your site with a lot of keywords this can even lead to search enigines penalizing your site score. In general i think it's best to focus on good titles, descriptions and content and don't use keywords.

Keywords still play a role but they need to be related to what you write in the text on the frontpage itself. This is quite important as otherwise you getpenelaized. But it means also that search engines still use the field and there are more search engines than only Google!

I personally won't waste to much time in keywords but from a business point of view "keywords" is itself such a manifested keyword for selling a website as a SEO website! And alone because of that I would leave the field just where it is inside the SEO Tool and the website. Let the customers fill it up like doctors give them some placebos and they will buy your sites ;-) and ideas!

As far as I am aware, Google definitely don't use Meta Keywords, Bing definitely doesn't and it looks like Yahoo don't either.

Keywords are also a lovely way of telling your clients' competitors what words are important to your client. 

I use them all the time - reading them from the competitor's website. :)

Google hasn't used Keywords as a ranking metric since 2009-ish. Here's the offical post from Google.

I think the keywords field should stay. Clients are hard-wired into believing that Keywords matter because they did for so long.

Not having a Keywords field could negatively impact first impressions from some clients.

As someone else mentioned, other Search Engines might have their own policies re. keywords. I'm not an SEO professional.

For anyone wondering where the focus should be, the two most important ranking factors used by Google are:

  1. Quality incoming links from relevant sites. Quality is the key here and 3rd party sites themselves must have a good reputation.
  2. Relevant, quality content that is updated and shareable. 

I think in total  there are thought to be around 200 "signals" which Google ultimatelty uses to determine ranking.

Any SEO pros on here to confirm?

Matt Cutts about WordPress and SEO - worth watching!



Listen carefully as you will here "keywords" ....
- don't mix that tool up with seoiq.de (Trittbrett Fahrer)

keywords in meta data are not the same like "on-page keywords"!!! The later is still quite important, even with Google.

Daily Google is changing their algorithms so change your way of doing SEO at the same rate and you will be on the top of the pop perhaps!

Out of interest, do you have any details on the Bing and Yahoo parts? Google is obvious, but as far as I can tell, Bing and Yahoo still use keywords, though they're not exactly important ranking factors (quite the opposite, really -- they seem to have much less weight than regular body copy).

Also, for anyone targeting the Russian or Chinese markets, it should be noted that Yandex specifically suggests using meta keywords (they're not revealing how important these are as ranking factors though) and according to some sources Baidu considers meta keywords "very important" (though keyword stuffing is a major negative signal there too).

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.
      Screenshots

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
