On-Page Search Engine Optimization for Magento

One year ago I had no idea what Magento was because I haven't got any clients that used such a platform. So I was pretty alien when it came to implementing SEO to Magento type websites.

On-Page Search Engine Optimization for Magento

Magento is a free open source e-commerce platform. It's pretty user-friendly with a cool admin panel that lets you do implement a lot of stuff and also haves already built-in on-page SEO features like title tags and meta descriptions as well as a range of other options.

Problem is, I run into a lot of problems when implementing on-page, it's not like Wordpress where you have a gazillion plugins at your disposal. I also have to do a lot of tests, to figure out what works and what doesn't when it comes to actually ranking product pages or listing pages.

Anyone here familiar with SEO for Magento? I've read a lot of tutorials, no too many out there that are actually helpful so please share any material you think matters on this subject. Thank you!

I wasn't a huge fan of it and since it was a website of my own, I switched it over to wordpress so that I would have access to the plugin library On-Page Search Engine Optimization for Magento

Razzy, don't worry mate, post whenever you like, we'll all contribute. As far as Magento vs Wordpress goes, well, they don't really match up since Magento is built to maintain thousands of products. Overall Magento is a pure eCommerce platform as Wordpress is way more versatile.

Cristian I haven't even heard of Magento until now, so thank you for educating me on it. I love Wordpress and it is the only platform I have ever worked on so honestly I can't see myself working on anything else.

You say that Magento is a pure eCommerce platform that is built to maintain thousands of products.. so would you say that Magento would be a much better option for an online store with a very wide product range? I had an online store on Wordpress and I used WooCommerce and it worked very nicely. Of course I can't compare it with Magento since this is the first I have ever heard of it.

Well, if we are talking about a small online store, like 100 products or so, go with Wordpress. If you want to have A LOT of product pages and listing pages, definitely go with something more specialized and I can vouch for Magento.

If Magento is a competitor of Wordpress then I wonder why I only heard of it now. But maybe it is a good thing to learn because I am in this forum more for the learning and not exactly for the earning. I got interested in this discussion mainly because of the SEO that I think would be a plus for my knowledge.
