    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="" />
    <meta property="og:image:width" content="2482" />
    <meta property="og:image:height" content="1572" />
    <meta name="twitter:image" content="" />
    <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="" />
    <link sizes="32x32" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="" />
    <link sizes="96x96" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="" />
    <link sizes="192x192" type="image/png" rel="icon" href="" />

    To do that, install the react-datocms package:

    npm install react-datocms

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

    import { toNextMetadata } from "react-datocms";
    import { performRequest } from 'lib/datocms';
    import Head from "next/head";
    const PAGE_CONTENT_QUERY = `{
    site: _site {
    favicon: faviconMetaTags {
    blog {
    seo: _seoMetaTags {
    function getPageRequest() {
    return {
    variables: { limit: 10 }
    export async function generateMetadata() {
    const response = await performRequest(getPageRequest());
    return toNextMetadata([, ])
    export default function Home({ data }) {
    const response = await performRequest(getPageRequest());
    // [...]
