Is it possible to add a Metatag Description in Views?
Most helpful answers
I find decision with module SEO Meta Tags. But I use also Metatag module for other functionality that I don't find in SEO Meta Tags (f.e. using tokens for metatags in different content types) and hope they can work together without conflicts.
Could you explain what type of tokens for which meta tags in different content types would you like to have? Maybe you are not alone :-)
If you install Metatag https://backdropcms.org/project/metatag and go to admin/config/metadata/metatags/config/node you will see BASIC TAGS and ADVANCED TAGS sections with many different useful metatags - Page title, Description, Abstract, Keywords, Google News Keywords, Content rating, Rights, Image, Canonical URL and many others, that can be filled out manually or automatically with tokens.
- Content Tokens related to individual pieces of content, or "nodes".
- Current date Tokens related to the current date and time.
- Current page Tokens related to the current page request.
- Current user Tokens related to the currently logged in user.
- Meta tags Generated by the Metatag.
- Site information Tokens for site-wide settings and other global information.
You can edit this for Home page, Content (different content types), Taxonomy therm pages, User pages. It is useful for SEO, But you cannot edit metatags for Views pages (unless you embed views block in a node page).
SEO Meta Tags module gives you metatags for views pages but without tokens.
I Don't know how views tokens for Metatags can be used in advance. When I have a tool I gradually invent different ways how to use it.
It also Depends on what types of tokens would be available for views. It's Just an idea.
I don't if you can, but an alternative way that might work is to add a view block and filter it for one page. And then configure metatag on that page.
