At Zyro we take care of a lot of the SEO features such as the website speed and sitemaps. However, there are a few things you can do yourself to boost your search engine rankings.

Table of contents

Meta titles and descriptions of your website pages

You can add a meta (page) title and a meta (page) description to all of your web pages at the website Settings → SEO.

From your dashboard, hover over the website thumbnail and click Settings.

Then, click on the SEO tab, select the page you want to edit and enter the page title and description.

  • The page title length should be up to 60 symbols (spaces included).

  • The page description length should be up to 160 symbols (spaces included).

Save the changes and update your website.

If you can't see the page titles updated in the browser tabs online, follow these steps to troubleshoot it:

  • Clear the browser's cache

  • Open the website using incognito mode/private browsing window

  • Open the website using another device (e.g. your smartphone, tablet, friend's PC)

  • Open the website using different networks (try Wi-Fi instead of mobile data)

  • If all else fails, contact the Zyro Support Team.

Keep in mind that it can take between 7 days and 4 weeks for these changes to be reflected in the Google search results. However, you can speed it up by using Google Search Console - learn more about it here.


Hiding a page from search results

If you don't want particular pages to appear in search results (e.g. on Google search), you can tweak this from your dashboard, hovering over the website thumbnail and clicking on Settings.

Then, click on the SEO tab, select the page you want to hide, and turn the Hide page from the search results option on.

Save the changes and update your website.

Alternative text for images

It's very important to have alternative text for images for SEO, as it will be used to make your website more accessible to everyone (e.g. people using screen readers).

Select the image you want to optimize for SEO and click on Change image.

In the image settings, insert a description of the image under Alt text. Your inserted text will be read for your website visitors who use screen readers.

Note: If you're running an online store, the alt text for the main product image is created automatically using the same text as the product title. If you'd like to add alt texts to all product images (not only the main one), please contact the Zyro Success Team and we'll enable this option for you.
