Meta Description Prestashop - updated

The best length of meta description in Prestashop

How long should meta description in Prestashop be? I said you can write meta descriptions for 300 characters, but it's not correct anymore. Everything has changed!

What should be the length of title on Prestashop for SEO

What should be the length of title on Prestashop for SEO

How to write a strong SEO Title Tag that Google will love on your site? In my previous tutorial on Prestashop SEO Made Simple: A Step-by-Step guide, i said that the title should be succinct between 5 and 10 words, roughly 60 characters. Yesterday when i worked on a P1.7 website, i can see this platform offers you to write a title tag with max 70 characters.

What is the correct number? Because title tags are one of the essential elements, and even a slight change in the meta title of your page can bring a significant shift in your organic rankings, so, we need to find the correct number.

How to show subcategories images in Prestashop's top menu

How to show subcategories images on Prestashop top menu

Few months ago i wrote a tutorial to share about the way to show categories images on menu.

Then @Psdesigner and @Damien Belgacig asked me about the way to put subcategories images instead of main category's image. Sorry 2 guys, Disqus didn't tell me about your comments.

Well, as my previous article, if you edit ps_mainmenu template file (ps_mainmenu.tpl) and put the source code as my suggest, all categories images will be showed on Prestashop Menu. In case you only want to allow subcategories images, we need to make some changes.

Starting Your Own Subscription Business with Prestashop

Starting Your Own Subscription Business with Prestashop

Subscription Business is not new and quite common, especially for the services. Since consumer buying habits are trending toward more simple and hassle-free shopping experiences, more and more companies are jumping into the subscription space and seeing incredible growth. It's not difficult to use it on your Prestashop website.

Selling a one-off digital product, service or course may offer you instant gratification. You get an email saying you've made a sale and the money turns up in your bank account. However, you then need to work hard to get a new customer to make a purchase.

One of our clients, Rajković, sell animal food and feeds in Prague, Czech. His products are very good and his clients are very lovely.

But he told me "Frank, i'm losing. I'm spending too much money on advertising."

This costs time and money. So why not try maximising your revenue – and easing your cash flow – by persuading customers to sign up to a membership/subscription? That way your initial marketing investment pays off month after month after month.

Disable Add to Cart Prestashop Popup - Step by Step

Many people asked our support team to disable the popup that shows when adding a product to the cart with ajax, and instead redirect to the Cart Summary page. I have seen many posts instructing to disable Add to Cart popup in the Cart Block module, but it only works for Prestashop 1.6.

Unfortunately, if you disable this feature, the popup won't display but it does not redirects your customer to the Cart Summary page.
