-Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is some kind of mystery. Because the big search engines don't reveal their complete methods of spidering and ranking it is always some guesswork to determine what's right and what's not. In general SEO boils down to tuning three things: //​content//,​ //meta headers// and //URLs//. This document should give you some ideas how DokuWiki works in these areas and what additional SEO methods are available.fgfgfgffgfggfgg+Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is some kind of mystery.

Other headers, such as keywords and description can be created using the [[plugin:​keywords]] and [[plugin:​description]] plugins.

As with other possible meta tags, feel free to place it on your pages if you can use it for other purposes - it won't count against you. > You're right in that we generally ignore the contents of the "​keywords"​ meta tag.

 From a SEO perspective,​ you should keep the name of the Wiki short (in the case of this wiki: [DokuWiki]) as the title is repeated in the page title on all pages. That way, your title is focused on the page keywords in the beginning of the title (here: "​__seo__ [DokuWiki]"​),​ indicating to the search engine the actual content of the page. From a SEO perspective,​ you should keep the name of the Wiki short (in the case of this wiki: [DokuWiki]) as the title is repeated in the page title on all pages.
