Adding your own meta fields

Your meta fields are important for search engines. While we populate sane default meta fields for your site right out of the box, you should make sure to customize them.

HelpKit enables you to change your:

  • Meta Title
  • Meta Description
  • Favicon Image
  • MetaOG Image (for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. banners)
Notion image

In addition you can also disable search engines from crawling your site by switching the Allow search engines to list this site toggle.

Auto Generated Sitemap

HelpKit automatically generates a xml sitemap for all your pages. You can have a look at it by entering the following url into your browser: your_project_name.helpkit.so/sitemap.xml

ย 
"A good XML sitemap acts as a roadmap of your website that leads Google to all your important pages. XML sitemaps can be good for SEO, as they allow Google to find your essential website pages quickly" โ€“ Yoast SEO
ย 
๐Ÿ‘‰
We highly recommend you to submit your sitemap to Google once in a while so that you can help Googleโ€™s crawlers do their job better and increase your newly added articles to show up earlier. ๐Ÿ“šย You can learn more about how to submit your sitemap here in this article
ย 

Smart URL Structure

HelpKit is built on a smart url structure for your collections and articles that allow you to easily change titles without breaking the site. This is important as you will likely have your articles linked somewhere throughout the internet. Without our slug structure, someone would not be able to access your article if you happen to change the title.
