Advanced Usage

Config Settings

SEOmatic supports the standard config.php multi-environment friendly config file for the plugin settings. Just copy the config.php to your Craft config/ directory as seomatic.php and you can configure the settings in a multi-environment friendly way.

These are the same settings that are configured in the Plugin Settings in the Control Panel.

Events

IncludeContainerEvent

const EVENT_INCLUDE_CONTAINER = 'includeContainer';

The event that is triggered when a container is about to be included.

use nystudio107\seomatic\events\IncludeContainerEvent;
use nystudio107\seomatic\base\Container;
use yii\base\Event;
Event::on(Container::class, Container::EVENT_INCLUDE_CONTAINER, function(IncludeContainerEvent $e) {
    $e->include = false;
});

InvalidateContainerCachesEvent

const EVENT_INVALIDATE_CONTAINER_CACHES = 'invalidateContainerCaches';

The event that is triggered when SEOmatic is about to clear its meta container caches

use nystudio107\seomatic\events\InvalidateContainerCachesEvent;
use nystudio107\seomatic\services\MetaContainers;
use yii\base\Event;
Event::on(MetaContainers::class, MetaContainers::EVENT_INVALIDATE_CONTAINER_CACHES, function(InvalidateContainerCachesEvent $e) {
    // Container caches are about to be cleared
});

RegisterSitemapUrlsEvent

const EVENT_REGISTER_SITEMAP_URLS = 'registerSitemapUrls';

The event that is triggered when registering additional URLs for a sitemap.

use nystudio107\seomatic\events\RegisterSitemapUrlsEvent;
use nystudio107\seomatic\models\SitemapCustomTemplate;
use yii\base\Event;
Event::on(SitemapCustomTemplate::class, SitemapCustomTemplate::EVENT_REGISTER_SITEMAP_URLS, function(RegisterSitemapUrlsEvent $e) {
    $e->sitemaps[] = [
        'loc' => $url,
        'changefreq' => $changeFreq,
        'priority' => $priority,
        'lastmod' => $lastMod,
    ];
});

RegisterSitemapsEvent

const EVENT_REGISTER_SITEMAPS = 'registerSitemaps';

The event that is triggered when registering additional sitemaps for the sitemap index.

use nystudio107\seomatic\events\RegisterSitemapsEvent;
use nystudio107\seomatic\models\SitemapIndexTemplate;
use yii\base\Event;
Event::on(SitemapIndexTemplate::class, SitemapIndexTemplate::EVENT_REGISTER_SITEMAPS, function(RegisterSitemapsEvent $e) {
    $e->sitemaps[] = [
        'loc' => $url,
        'lastmod' => $lastMod,
    ];
});

RegisterComponentTypesEvent

const EVENT_REGISTER_SEO_ELEMENT_TYPES = 'registerSeoElementTypes';

The event that is triggered when registering SeoElement types

SeoElement types must implement [[SeoElementInterface]]

use nystudio107\seomatic\services\SeoElements;
use craft\events\RegisterComponentTypesEvent;
use yii\base\Event;

Event::on(SeoElements::class,
    SeoElements::EVENT_REGISTER_SEO_ELEMENT_TYPES,
    function(RegisterComponentTypesEvent $event) {
        $event->types[] = MySeoElement::class;
    }
);

AddDynamicMetaEvent

const EVENT_ADD_DYNAMIC_META = 'addDynamicMeta';

The event that is triggered when SEOmatic has included the standard meta containers, and gives your plugin/module the chance to add whatever custom dynamic meta items you like

use nystudio107\seomatic\events\AddDynamicMetaEvent;
use nystudio107\seomatic\helpers\DynamicMeta;
use yii\base\Event;
Event::on(DynamicMeta::class, DynamicMeta::EVENT_ADD_DYNAMIC_META, function(AddDynamicMetaEvent $e) {
    // Add whatever dynamic meta items to the containers as you like
});

Meta Bundle / Container Settings

The directory vendor/nystudio107/seomatic/src/seomatic-config contains a number of files that are used when initially configuring SEOmatic.

Screenshot

You can copy this entire directory to your Craft config/ directory, and customize the files to your heart’s content. SEOmatic will first look in the config/ directory for any given file, and then fall back on its own internal seomatic-config files.

Note that these files are only used when initially creating a meta bundle. That is, whenever the plugin is installed, or new Section, Category Groups, or Commerce Product Types are created. Once meta bundles have been created, changing the settings in the file will have no effect.

You can bump the Bundle.php's bundleVersion setting if you want it to re-read your config settings.

Headless SPA API

SEOmatic allows you to fetch the meta information for any page via a controller API endpoint, so you can render the metadata via a frontend framework like VueJS or React.

GraphQL Query support

To retrieve SEOmatic container data through the native GraphQL in Craft CMS 3.3 or the CraftQL plugin, use the seomatic field in your GraphQL query. Each parameter will return that container’s data, ready for insertion into the DOM.

You must as least pass in the URI you want metadata for:

{
  seomatic (uri: "/") {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
  }
}

...and you can also pass in an optional siteId:

{
  seomatic (uri: "/", siteId: 2) {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
  }
}

...or you can also pass in an optional site handle:

{
  seomatic (uri: "/", site: "french") {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
  }
}

...and you can also pass in an optional asArray parameter:

{
  seomatic (uri: "/", asArray: true) {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
  }
}

This defaults to false which returns to you HTML ready to be inserted into the DOM. If you set it to true then it will return a JSON-encoded array of the container data.

This is useful if you’re using Next.js, Nuxt.js, Gatsby, Gridsome, or anything else that uses a library to insert the various tags. In this case, you want the raw data to pass along.

...and you can also pass in an optional environment parameter:

{
  seomatic (uri: "/", environment: staging) {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
  }
}

This will override whatever the current SEOmatic environment is set to, and allow you to get the appropriate meta information for any of the preset SEOmatic environments. So robots for example will be disabled in local developmand & staging environments.

This is useful if you are using a single Craft CMS instance to render metadata for multiple environments like staging and live production.

Valid values are local for local development, staging for staging, and live for live production.

Frontend Templates GraphQL queries

SEOmatic an provide you with the frontend templates such as robots.txt, humans.txt, etc. as well:

Screenshot

{
  seomatic {
    frontendTemplates {
      filename,
      contents
    }
  }
}

Arguments:

frontendTemplates(siteId: 1, site: mainSite, type: robots)

siteId: Int - Optional - The site ID to resolve the sitemap for.

site: String - Optional - The site handle to resolve the sitemap for.

type: String - The frontend container type, which can be robots, humans, security, or ads

Sitemap GraphQL queries

SEOmatic can provide you with the sitemap data via GraphQL as well.

Screenshot

SEOmatic allows you to query for sitemapIndexes:

{
  seomatic {
    sitemapIndexes {
      filename
      contents
    }
  }
}

Arguments:

sitemapIndexes(siteId: 1, site: mainSite)

siteId: Int - Optional - The site ID to resolve the sitemap for.

site: String - Optional - The site handle to resolve the sitemap for.

SEOmatic allows you to query for sitemaps:

{
  seomatic {
    sitemaps {
      filename
      contents
    }
  }
}

Arguments:

sitemaps(filename: some_sitemap, siteId: 1, site: mainSite, sourceBundleType: product, sourceBundleHandle: someHandle)

filename: String - Optional - the sitemap filename.

siteId: Int - Optional - The site ID to resolve the sitemap for.

site: String - Optional - The site handle to resolve the sitemap for.

sourceBundleType: String - Optional - The source bundle type to get the sitemaps for.

sourceBundleHandle: String - Optional - The source bundles handle to get the sitemap for.

SEOmatic also allows you to query for sitemapStyles:

{
  seomatic {
      sitemapStyles {
      filename
      contents
    }
  }
}

This returns the XSL style sheet that SEOmatic uses to make the sitemaps pleasant for humans to read.

Piggybacking GraphQL queries

You can also piggyback on an entries query, to return all of your data for an entry as well as the SEOmatic metadata in one request.

N.B.: This requires using either Craft CMS 3.4 or later, or the CraftQL plugin to work.

Native Craft CMS GraphQL:

{
  entry(section: "homepage") {
    id
    title
    seomatic {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
    }
  }
}

CraftQL Plugin:

{
  entry(section: homepage) {
    id
    title
    ... on Homepage {
      seomatic {
        metaTitleContainer
        metaTagContainer
        metaLinkContainer
        metaScriptContainer
        metaJsonLdContainer
      }
    }
  }
}

In this case, no arguments are passed in, because the URI and siteId will be taken from the parent Entry element. But you can pass in the asArray argument too:

Native Craft CMS GraphQL:

{
  entry(section: "homepage") {
    id
    title
    seomatic(asArray: true) {
      metaTitleContainer
      metaTagContainer
      metaLinkContainer
      metaScriptContainer
      metaJsonLdContainer
      metaSiteVarsContainer
    }
  }
}

CraftQL Plugin:

{
  entry(section: homepage) {
    id
    title
    ... on Homepage {
      seomatic(asArray: true) {
        metaTitleContainer
        metaTagContainer
        metaLinkContainer
        metaScriptContainer
        metaJsonLdContainer
      }
    }
  }
}

Meta Container API Endpoints

N.B.: Anonymous access to the Meta Container endpoints are disabled by default; you’ll need to enable them in SEOmatic → Plugin Settings → Endpoints

To get all of the meta containers for a given URI, the controller action is:

/actions/seomatic/meta-container/all-meta-containers/?uri=/

...where uri is the path to obtain the meta information from.

This will return to you an array of meta containers, with the render-ready meta tags in each:

{
    "MetaTitleContainer": "<title>[devMode] Craft3 | Homepage</title>",
    "MetaTagContainer": "<meta name=\"generator\" content=\"SEOmatic\"><meta name=\"referrer\" content=\"no-referrer-when-downgrade\"><meta name=\"robots\" content=\"all\">",
    "MetaLinkContainer": "<link href=\"http://craft3.test/\" rel=\"canonical\"><link type=\"text/plain\" href=\"/humans.txt\" rel=\"author\"><link href=\"http://craft3.test/\" rel=\"alternate\" hreflang=\"es\">",

}

To request a URI from a specific site in a multi-site setup, you can do that with the optional siteId=SITE_ID parameter:

/actions/seomatic/meta-container/all-meta-containers/?uri=/&siteId=2

Should you wish to have the items in the meta containers return as an array of data instead, you can do that with the optional asArray=true parameter:

/actions/seomatic/meta-container/all-meta-containers/?uri=/&asArray=true

Which will return the data in array form:

}

All of the individual container controller API endpoints also accept the &asArray=true parameter if you’d like the data in array form.

Schema.org API Endpoints

N.B.: Anonymous access to the Schema.org JSON-LD endpoints are disabled by default; you’ll need to enable them in SEOmatic → Plugin Settings → Endpoints

To get a key-value array of a given Schema.org type:

/actions/seomatic/json-ld/get-type?schemaType=Article

To get a decomposed version of a given Schema.org type, with the properties grouped by each inherited type:

/actions/seomatic/json-ld/get-decomposed-type?schemaType=Article

To get a hierarchical array of all of the schema types:

/actions/seomatic/json-ld/get-type-array?path=Article

You can narrow this down to a specific sub-type list by passing in a path of schema types delimited by a .:

/actions/seomatic/json-ld/get-type-array?path=CreativeWork.Article

...this would output all of the sub-types of Article:

{
  "AdvertiserContentArticle": "AdvertiserContentArticle",
  "NewsArticle": {
    "AnalysisNewsArticle": "AnalysisNewsArticle",
    "BackgroundNewsArticle": "BackgroundNewsArticle",
    "OpinionNewsArticle": "OpinionNewsArticle",
    "ReportageNewsArticle": "ReportageNewsArticle",
    "ReviewNewsArticle": "ReviewNewsArticle"
  },
  "Report": "Report",
  "SatiricalArticle": "SatiricalArticle",
  "ScholarlyArticle": {
    "MedicalScholarlyArticle": "MedicalScholarlyArticle"
  },
  "SocialMediaPosting": {
    "BlogPosting": {
      "LiveBlogPosting": "LiveBlogPosting"
    },
    "DiscussionForumPosting": "DiscussionForumPosting"
  },
  "TechArticle": {
    "APIReference": "APIReference"
  }
}
