In this article we cover how to edit the SEO elements on member search results pages in general, including how to add additional content to the body of all member search results pages of a certain type (all country search results pages or all main category search results pages for example).
In some cases, you may also want to edit the SEO settings and/or content of one specific member search results page without affecting all of the other member search results pages of the same type.
For example, perhaps I want to add some additional content only for the member search results page for the main category "Restaurants" in the location Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, but I do not want this content added for any other main category search results pages in any other city.
To do this, we need to first create a new static page for this specific search results page.
Important Note: The instructions below will only impact the "Pretty" URL version of a member search results pages (for SEO purposes), and will not impact the content or SEO elements that visitors see when they use a search feature of the website to access the "Not So Pretty" URL version of the page. To impact the "Not So Pretty" URL version of the page, please see this article.
Creating The Static Page
First, login to the Admin area of your site and then click on the "Visit Website" link at the top of the screen:
This will allow you to view the front end of your website while having extra Admin abilities.
Next, navigate to the "Pretty" URL version of the member search results page you wish to edit. In this example, the "Pretty" URL version of the page is located at /united-states/nevada/las-vegas/restaurants.
Once you are on the page that you would like to edit, click on the "Create Static Page" icon in the left Admin navigation bar:
If you have already created this page, then the icon will change from "Create Static Page" to "Edit This Page":
After the page is created, we want to make sure to select "profile_search_results" as the "Page Type" shown here:
Next, we want to enter the permalink of this page into the Permalink field:
From here, we continue to fill out all of the other fields:
For more information about each of these fields and what impact they will have on the live webpage, please see the "Editing SEO Elements" section of this article.
Once this is complete and we save the changes, if we navigate to the same page on the front end of the website, we will see the new custom content and SEO Elements reflected on the page:
And we can also see the specific extra content we added for this page is displayed in the "Read More" tab:
