Meta tags are used to help search engines to index your site. The following tutorial will show you how to set up meta titles, descriptions and keywords on your Prestashop site.
Meta title is the title of a certain web page. It appears in the page browser tab. The meta title should be unique for each page, and less than 70 characters in length.
Meta description is a brief overview of the page used for search results listings. The meta description should contain less than 160 characters in length.
