Page names


Replace difficult to recognize URL addresses by clear page names for your report. E.g. Products: Chairs is easier to read than www.company.nl/index.php?pageID=45. 

 

Page names can be created in three ways:

 

  • automatic from the parameter
  • automatic from the (html) page title
  • manually

 

Whichever method you choose, you can always create page names manually. If a manual created page name conflicts with an automatic created one, the manual created one prevails. This way, you can change automatic page names which you don't like.

 

1. Automatic from the parameter

 

Go to Settings, Content and Pages automatic naming. This will display the following screen, listing all created page names.

 

 

Move the mouse over the lines; this will display an i and a trash can icon on the right side. Click on i to see which URLs are linked to a page name. Click on trash can to delete a page name.

 

This method is particularly suitable for dynamic websites and web shops and requires access to the templates or source code of the website and programming skills to add a & page_name = parameter to the end of the Snoobi tag. The value of this parameter represents the content of the page. Do not give two pages the same parameter, unless you want these pages to be analyzed as one. If a & page_name = parameter is changed, the change will be implemented after a period depending on the traffic on the site.

 

2. Automatic from the page title

 

This method is suitable for all websites whose pages already a descriptive title (html title tag) and only requires the push of a button. However, do check in advance whether the page names actually describe well what the pages are about. In the report, URLs are replaced with the titles of the pages - if the titles are misleading, the page names in the report are too. Also long titles of which the beginning is the same, may be a problem because these would be shown incomplete.

 

3. Manually

 

Go to Settings, Content and Pages manual naming. Choose this method for static html websites or if there is no other possibility.

 

NOTE: This method overwrites other page naming methods.

 

 

Click on +Add to add a new page name. In the next screen, enter the page name and the identifier, such as in the sample above.

 

Move the mouse over the lines; this will display an i and a trash can icon on the right side. Click on i to see which URLs are linked to a page name. Click on trash can to delete a page name.
