The WikiSEO extension allows you to replace, append or prepend the HTML title tag content. It also allows you to add common SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) meta elements such as "keywords" and "description".

A working job queue is absolutely required for this extension to function.


  • Descarga y extrae los archivos en un directorio denominado «WikiSEO» dentro de la carpeta extensions/.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/WikiSEO
  • Añade el siguiente código en la parte final de tu archivo LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'WikiSEO' );
  • Configúrelo según sea necesario.
  •   Hecho – Navega a Special:Version en el wiki para verificar que la extensión se haya instalado correctamente.

Añadir valores dinámicos

If you need to include variables or templates you should use the parser function to ensure they are properly parsed. This allows you to use Cargo or Semantic MediaWiki , with Page Forms , for data entry, or for programmatic creation of a page title from existing variables or content...

 |title={{#if: {{{page_title|}}} | {{{page_title}}} | Welcome to WikiSEO}}
 |title=Example SEO Wiki
 |keywords=WikiSEO, SEO, MediaWiki
 |description=An example description for this wiki
 |image_alt=Wiki Logo
 |site_name=Example SEO Wiki

Usage in Lua modules

-- Module:SEO
local seo = {}

argTable format:
  title_mode = 'append',
  title = 'Example Seo Wiki',
  keywords = 'WikiSEO, SEO, MediaWiki',
  -- ...
function seo.set( argTable )
  mw.ext.seo.set( argTable )

function seo.setStatic()
    title_mode = 'append',
    title = 'Example Seo Wiki',
    keywords = 'WikiSEO, SEO, MediaWiki',  

return seo

The module would now be callable as {{#invoke:SEO|set|title=ExampleTitle|keywords=WikiSEO, SEO, MediaWiki}} or {{#invoke:SEO|setStatic}}.

Maintenance Script

WikiSEO provides a maintenance script to generate descriptions for specified pages. This script requires Extensión:TextExtracts to be installed and active. The script will only generate descriptions for pages that don't have a description property set in the page properties table.

You can force the generation using the --force flag, this will overwrite any description already present.

A list of namespace ids needs to be given in order for the script to work:

# Run only in main namespace
php maintenance/GenerateDescription.php 0

# Run only in main namespace and overwrite existing descriptions
php maintenance/GenerateDescription.php --force 0

# Run in namespace 1234, overwrite descriptions and remove dangling sentences
php maintenance/GenerateDescription.php --force --cleanSentence 1234

Additionally you can set $wgWikiSeoOverwritePageImage = true; to overwrite the image set by PageImages with the one specified by WikiSEO.

Further details

The properties publisher and author will be set to Organization with the name set to the content of $wgSitename.

dateModified will be automatically set by fetching the latest revision timestamp. If no published_time is set, datePublished will be set to the latest revision timestamp.
