Steps to Configure Your SEO Settings
One inside your Edit Folder mode, configuring your Folder for SEO is easy. The steps referencing the below screenshot are explained in more detail below.
(1) Click Search Engine Optimization
Under Basics, click the option for Search Engine Optimization. This will load your SEO options in the window.
(2) Describe your Folder (Description Meta Tag)
Add a short description (max 250 characters) that describe the content for Flipbooks under the Folder. This can help search engines better understand your content.
The description will also show on your custom domain landing page, if you have enabled your own custom publishing domain for the Folder
(3) Keywords (Keywords Meta Tag)
Add some keywords that refer to the subject matter of your content. Make sure you separate your keywords with a comma, don't repeat your words or phrases, and go from most important to least. Max 250 characters.
(4) Block Search Engines From Indexing My Content
Check this option if you do not want search engines to crawl/find your Flipbooks on searches. If you have private content you don't want the general public to find on a search, make sure you check this option. Also, if you have secured your content through Remote Authentication or Subscription System, you may want to block search engines because they will be able to provide a "backdoor' view to your page content, images and text.
NOTE: If Google has already indexed your content and you then choose to block content, the search results will not be removed from Google searches until the next full web index, which is varied but generally once a month. When that actually occurs though is a mystery Google holds close to the vest.
Click Update to save any new changes OR click cancel to take you back to the Flipbooks page.
That's it! You've optimized for Flipbooks for search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo
