If you need to create lots of new pages, be sure to make some related categories first. For example, dedicated landing pages are a great way to promote content and lead your visitors into dedicated shopping pages.

I recommend my customers to create the category “Legal” and place there following pages:

  • Legal Notice
  • Privacy Policy
  • Terms and Conditions
  • Payments

This way, if you want to update related things - everything will go under one category.

For Title and Page Content, write meaningful information. Write up-to-the-point information that is related to the content you are describing. There is no need to have a range that is long to read and boring just to reach a certain number of words on a page.

Be sure that the SEO preview block looks catchy - this is how your customers will see you banned on Google. Make sure it is readable, easy to understand, and not promise what is not inside the pages.

Meta keywords input is useless and no longer used by Google. It is still used in some other search engines, but search engines these days figure out the content type from the article itself, so you don’t have to list anything in the keywords.

Use a very short slug for the Friendly URL field, 3-5 words max. Long URLs are cut on the search results page and won’t look good. Avoid that and list short and easy-to-read slug.

You might think that Indexation by search engines input should always be on. In fact - no, you should leave it to YES only for relevant and valuable pages. Pages like privacy policy, terms and conditions, and similar do not provide any value to your visit.
