Best Practices for Making Your Help Site SEO friendly


  • Make page URLs descriptive: Search engines prefer site URLs that are readable to humans. For example, if you have a page URL:, you can see this URL makes little sense and does not help humans or search engines know what the page is about. The better URL is, which is friendly because you can figure out what the page is about.

  • Make page titles descriptive: When you create a page in ProProfs, you will provide a page title. The page title is also used by search engines when listing the page in the search results. A desirable title is 50-60 characters long and contains keywords about the page's content.

  • Think about your keywords: Keywords are an integral part of SEO. If you fail to include relevant keywords in your content, the search engines may never find it. Keywords should be used in your page title, headings (h1-h6), main body content, URLs, and image names with ALT tags. 

  • Page content: Content is king and having good content is key to getting pages to appear in the search engines. 

  • Page links: Search engines use hyperlinks to crawl your entire site. Adding links pointing to other ProProfs pages makes it easy for each engine to crawl from one page to the next. Don't worry about links to pages that you don't want the index. ProProfs will automatically remove links to pages that have SEO disabled. 

  • Canonical Tag:  A canonical tells search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of the page. Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or duplicate content appearing on multiple URLs. The canonical tag tells search engines which version of a URL you want to appear in search results.

  • CallOut Extensions: Callout extensions let you include the additional text for displaying more detailed information about your business, products, and services. Callout extensions can be added to search network campaigns that have opted into the display network.



That is all about configuring SEO settings for your help pages.
