Adding an SEO title

The SEO title differs from an article title and will appear on a search engine result page, or when the article link is shared on social media or other websites.

This allows you to optimize a title to include more keywords that relate to your product than you would in your knowledge base. Setting the SEO title does not change the title of the article in your knowledge base. By default, SEO title is the article title. However, it can be changed for SEO purposes.

To add an SEO title:

  1. Navigate to the desired article, click Article Settings.
  2. Click SEO
  3. Enter the desired SEO title in the Title field
  4. Click Save
