6. Edit your Open Graph Defaults
Here you can set your default Open Graph settings. Open Graph can be access for individual pages under Page Manager and clicking on the Wheel icon that will lead you the Page Settings configuration.

Open Graph settings in Advantage CSP refer to the configuration options related to Open Graph protocol tags. The Open Graph protocol enables web pages to become rich objects in a social graph, allowing them to be shared effectively across social media platforms.

Here's what Open Graph settings can be adjusted.

  1. Title: This is the title of the page as it should appear when shared on social media platforms. It's often separate from the HTML title tag for SEO purposes.
  2. Image: An image associated with the page. This image should be visually appealing and relevant to the content of the page.
  3. Type: Open Graph supports various types of content such as website, article, video, etc. This setting allows specifying the type of content the page represents.
  4. URL: The canonical URL of the page, which is used as the basis for sharing. It's important for ensuring that shared links point to the correct location.
The purpose of configuring Open Graph settings is to ensure that when content from the website is shared on social media platforms, it appears correctly formatted and with the desired title, image, and other relevant information. This can help improve the visibility and engagement of the shared content across social networks.

7. Edit your Robots text file
The robots.txt file is a text file gives instructions to web crawlers or robots about which pages or files the crawler can or cannot request from your site. The primary purpose of the robots.txt file is to communicate with web crawlers to control their behavior when accessing your website's content.

Here are some key purposes of the robots.txt file:

  1. Control Search Engine Crawling: By specifying directives in the robots.txt file, website owners can control which parts of their site are crawled by search engine bots. This can help prevent certain pages from being indexed in search engine results.
  2. Prevent Indexing of Sensitive Content: Websites may contain certain sensitive or private content that they don't want to be indexed by search engines. The robots.txt file allows them to block access to these parts of the site from search engine crawlers.
  3. Reduce Server Load: By disallowing access to certain directories or files that are not relevant for indexing, website owners can reduce the server load and bandwidth usage on their servers. This can be particularly useful for large websites with many pages.
  4. Protect Copyrighted Content: Website owners can use the robots.txt file to prevent search engines from indexing content that they don't have the right to distribute, such as copyrighted material.
  5. Direct Crawl Budget: For larger websites, the robots.txt file can be used to direct search engine crawlers to focus on crawling the most important or relevant pages first, thereby optimizing the crawl budget.
