4. SEO

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This tab is available on every page that is interesting to be picked up by a search engine such as Google or Bing. Most of these fields are filled out automatically if possible. If not, you can fill them out manually. This is very important to do so and to be revised every few months! SEO is kind of a specialization so please read up on it before adding all necessary info! 

You can preview your social media links by clicking the Preview SEO Meta Display button.
