Adding SEO to pages

    Similarly to what we offer with responsive images, our GraphQL API also offers a way to fetch pre-computed SEO meta tags based on the content you insert inside DatoCMS.

    You can easily use this information inside your Next app with the help of our react-datocms package.

    Here's a sample of the meta tags you can automatically generate:

    <title>DatoCMS Blog - DatoCMS</title>
    <meta property="og:title" content="DatoCMS Blog" />
    <meta name="twitter:title" content="DatoCMS Blog" />
    <meta name="description" content="Lorem ipsum..." />
    <meta property="og:description" content="Lorem ipsum..." />
    <meta name="twitter:description" content="Lorem ipsum..." />
    <meta property="og:image" content="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />
    <meta property="og:image:width" content="2482" />
    <meta property="og:image:height" content="1572" />
    <meta name="twitter:image" content="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />
    <meta property="og:locale" content="en" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="website" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="DatoCMS" />
    <meta property="article:modified_time" content="2020-03-06T15:07:14Z" />
    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
    <meta name="twitter:site" content="@datocms" />
    <link sizes="16x16" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />
    <link sizes="32x32" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />
    <link sizes="96x96" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />
    <link sizes="192x192" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="https://www.datocms-assets.com/..." />

    To do that, install the react-datocms package:

    yarn add react-datocms

    Then, inside your page, feed content coming from a faviconMetaTags or _seoMetaTags query directly into the renderMetaTags function:

    import { request } from "../lib/datocms";
    import { renderMetaTags } from "react-datocms";
    import Head from "next/head";
    const HOMEPAGE_QUERY = `
    {
    site: _site {
    favicon: faviconMetaTags {
    attributes
    content
    tag
    }
    }
    blog {
    seo: _seoMetaTags {
    attributes
    content
    tag
    }
    }
    }`;
    export async function getStaticProps() {
    const data = await request({
    query: HOMEPAGE_QUERY,
    variables: { limit: 10 }
    });
    return {
    props: {
    data
    }
    };
    }
    export default function Home({ data }) {
    return (
    <div>
    <Head>{renderMetaTags(data.blog.seo.concat(data.site.favicon))}</Head>
    {/* ... */}
    </div>
    );
    }
