In this article, we will discuss the process of adding Shopify Tag and Meta field on SellerCloud.
Shopify has made it easier to create a website. It is a platform that enables you to grow your eCommerce business. Shopify Metatags, or product tags, are metadata that is used by external search engines, like google. Meta tags can be meta titles, meta descriptions, and meta keywords. Meta tags are added on the Website Properties page. They are uploaded to Shopify when the product is posted. Meta Keywords are the regular tags used by Shopify search engine. Tags are searchable keywords associated with your product. Tags can help customers find your product through your online store search. Shopify meta fields are a way to add extra data to the products with fields that are not native to Shopify. The fields do not display on the listing but can be used to reference products internally within Shopify. Meta fields are constructed with 4 properties Namespace, Key, Value and Value Type.
Namespace – functions as a container for a set of meta fields which help to distinguish between metadata that you created and metadata created by others with a similar namespace.
Key – the identifier for a meta field.
Value – content of the meta field.
Value Type – string or an integer.
To add meta fields you need to go to Navigation Bar and click on the Settings there.
