    SEO fields

    If you are building a website, you surely need to think about SEO and provide custom special content for search engines and social networks.

    To help you do that, in DatoCMS you can find a special "SEO and Social" field that helps content editors and marketers optimize for that.

    In the models that use an "SEO and Social field", you will be able to specify a custom title, description, image, and Twitter card format that you'll be able to use to improve your page meta tags.

    Here's how it works:

    API helpers

    When fetching records from our GraphQL API, you'll find a _seoMetaTags helper in which you'll find all the meta tags we offer, with already the data merged with the global SEO preferences and fallbacks.

    You can read all the details in the relevant section of the CDA docs.
