The Faster Woo Widgets Shop Title settings are where you can change the shop and the page titles to decide what displays on every page, in the browser and thus the title of what appears for pages in Google’s index.
If left alone, the titles will default to whatever you have named your WordPress project. For example, mine will just be called GlynDemo, so my tab and homepage say exactly that.
To begin with, navigate to the settings through your Dashboard > Settings > Faster Woo Widgets and scroll down to Shop titles.
By dragging from Available to Active, you can start changing the titles. First I’m going to set the prefix of the page title to Products, and make sure I save the changes at the bottom of the page.
This was what my page title (Tab) looked like before and after changing the Title Prefix
To also change the Shop Page title on your website itself, there is the override checkbox at the bottom. By clicking this your page title will override the Woocommerce H1 tags, or add one if your chosen theme doesn’t display one. The same counts for the Yoast override if you have Yoast (or RankMath or other SEO plugins) installed For this article, I am using the Online eStore theme, and here is what this looks like before and after enabling the override checkbox.
Adding Categories or Attributes into your browser and WooCommerce titles
Now I’m going to add the Product_Cat (Categories). You can put whatever you want in the prefix and suffix areas. However, you probably want it to look nice and clean so a hyphen is a good separator.
If, for example, you add your colour attribute, you may wish to have the prefix ‘Colour’ so that this part of your title becomes ‘Colour Black’.
Make sure you add a space at the end/beginning because the words and symbols won’t be separated automatically, in case you actually want them to be connected. I’m going to add some words and click on my Hoodies subcategory.
Here it would at least be better to add a hyphen or something either after the Title Suffix or before every individual prefix you have activated. Maybe you prefer something different every time. I could just go for the ‘space hyphen space’ and have this:
But now my actual page title is going to have a two hyphens between Hoodies and my website name. I don’t know about you but this annoys me:
I want to fix this. That second hyphen comes from the Title Separator option, as this will default to a hyphen, Of course, you can fix this by not adding a hyphen in the Product_Cat suffix. You can also add a Title Suffix which will display after the Product_Cat but before the separator. I’m just going to add a space in the Title separator because it fixes my personal problem right now.
This is mainly something you want to play around with to see what is your preference, just remember, Title Prefix – Prefix – Active box – Suffix – Title Suffix – Title Separator – Website.
Meta description settings
The meta description is the snippet that displays under your Page Title in search results. These are best kept short yet informative and inviting enough for potential customers to decide to visit your website. You want to make sure your description has keywords that you think will be used often when people search for products similar to what you are selling. I’m looking for a specific type of noodles so I search for this:. The first result is paid advertisement, but then up comes Amazon with some of my search words showing bold in the snippet.
Unfortunately, I can’t show you an exact example of what will happen when I change my meta descriptions but you can check it out in your source code (ctrl+U) by searching (ctrl+F) for meta, and pressing enter until you find
I will drag some boxes into active and first change the main description.
And after clicking on the colour green, because I haven’t added a prefix or a suffix yet:
So I will add a few prefixes and suffixes and click through a few filters.
Well, that’s just messy. don’t forget some kind of separators.
This is all up to how you prefer it, of course, these are just some easy examples.
Faster Woo Widgets allows you complete control over what text appears on Page 2+ of your WooCommerce store.
For these examples, I’m going to use a different example site, https://foundthru.com/shop/. The theme being used here is Rehub, we have a performance and scalability review for it here: https://www.wpintense.com/2017/11/06/rehub-theme-performance-and-scalability-review/
First I’m going to pick a category, which in this case will be Baking, and then I’m going to click on page 2.
You can also decide to keep the default text and have it come after the suffix, like this:
You can also choose to add your own text, I could type in the word ‘Displaying’, but then it will no longer display the product and page count so you have to make to add %XX to %YY (Page %X of %Y) so they will show up again.
Products on Sale Title Text
Our Faster Woo Widgets Products on Sale options will clean up your URL by enabling pretty Permalinks and letting you make your own. This will speed everything up and we also added an option for you to decide if you want Googlebot to crawl it and index your On Sale products.
If the pretty permalinks checkbox is left empty, your site will have a standard on-sale URl. In my case with my Demosite it’s this:
. So I’m going to check the box and add an On Sale slug. What you put in the slug box is what will show up in your URL:
And this is my result:
You can also change your page title, the title that displays in your page tab. Type what you would like that to be in the box net to ‘On Sale title text’.
