  • Seo Meta in SC8 <meta name='' content=''>

    Hello to all the forum, today I came to a question, we all know that the meta information for Seo must be inserted between the HTML <head> <head> sections>, is correct enter the meta information for Seo in applications written in SC8 in the following sections :

    - For App Menu, Form, Grid, Search in: onApplicationInit
    - For App Blank: OnExecute

    For Tabs, where I put the meta x Seo ?? Since it has no sections where i can write PHP or HTML code.

    Thanks you very much for your answers.

    I hope this works for you but I came to this solution for add something to the <head> tag to prevent format detection in iOS to telephone numbers.

    in "onApplicationInit", put the following:

    <meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">

        Yesterday I met a problem with validation of the site with google webmaster tools, to validate the google site requires you to enter the following destination:

        <Meta name = 'google-site-verification' content = 'c5oXhBX9K7XkV8fzXsEYOukQNg8bPREYEUJDwWBeuQqo' />

        in the <head> </ head> in the index of the website home page.

        I made several attempts but nothing.

        After to solve the problem i must rewrite the index of the Home in Html code.

        The SC system that generates the index of home for is not good.

        It also notes that the sites written in SC have little visibility on search engines.

        Today I will do other tests, analyzing the html pages of response that the server generates based on the php code SC8.
        In particular by analyzing the <meta> tag.

          just wanted to add a better solution to add entries to <head>

          I now use this in grid application on event onApplicationInit:

          <script type="text/javascript">
          $(document).ready(function() {
          $("head").append("<meta name='format-detection' content='telephone=no'>");

            Hello, thank you for your answer and the code, I analyzed all the html response server-generated pages based on PHP code generated by SC8.

            There are two problems:

            1) index.php in the server home is no good. It must be rewrite in HTML or PHP, so you can integrate all the meta including validation of google.

            2) App Tabs calling other APP stops all meta, even in this case I rewrite a new version of Tabs that include the <meta> and is also dynamic.

            I think that Netmake should solve these problems immediately, is very important for all sites have good visibility on search engines,
            it is a bit of time that i realized that all sites written in SC8 had little visibility on search motions.

              There is another option to verify a website in Google Webmaster tools. I suggest you use the HTML file verification option instead of <meta> tag. Google Webmaster Tools generates a specific txt file that needs to be placed in the web root of your site. You simply generate the file, download it to your machine and FTP the file to your Scriptcase production site. Once the file is there, you can click on the verify link in Google Webmaster Tools and from that point on, your site data should be accessible in Webmaster tools. Do not remove the file, or you must repeat the process. I always save a copy of the file locally, so if something happens, I can upload it again to a server. Here is a helpful link:
              What is verification? Verification is the process of proving that you own the site or app that you claim to own. We need to confirm ownership because once you are verified for a site or app

                  Any time. We work quite a bit with Webmaster Tools so we have been down this road before.

                  Also, for more SEO disccoverability, if you prepare a sitemap, you can upload the XML file to the same location. There are many tools which will crawl your website and generate the required file. This one has been helpful to us: . Once the sitemap is uploaded, within Webmaster Tools you tell Google the sitemap filename and it begins the process of crawling your website. This can take some time and sometimes your pages are not indexed as you expect. For the most part, the process works well.

                  Let me know if I can help further!
