Version
This will tell Muse which canonical tags to generate for the webpage. If your website is fluid, you'll never need to change this.
Site Version You have 4 options:
  • Fluid (fluid layouts to not have any alternate layouts)

  • Tablet
  • Phone
This is the homepage This feature is for Fluid websites that want to remove index.html from the homepage.

Webpage
Image An image that represents the content of the webpage. This is also known as the Social Media Preview Image. Tip — Bigger is better but it should be at least 600x600. The image should represent the page in a visually appealing way. Many companies (including myself) use stock images. The image should also have very little text on it (if any).
Add Image Dimensions Enable this feature to add the width and height of your uploaded image.Tip — when a user shares a link to a page, if that page has not been shared on that platform, the image might not load in the preview because the platform hasn't indexed the image yet. If you add the image dimensions, however, the platorm will be able to load the image even if it hasn't been indexed yet.
Image Width The width of the image.
Image Height The height of the image.
Description A quick description of the webpage. Tip — The description is one of the most important parts of SEO. As an industry standard, descriptions should not exceed more than 160 characters. This post by Moz provides more information on why this is the standard. Remove any existing descriptions in the page properties. This widget will generate this tag for you.
