Yii 1.1: yii-seo

Nice and flexible way to manage your SEO, without rewriting the code



YiiSEO has been completely refactored. It is lot more flexible and now you can make almost any SEO changes without changing your code.

Features :

  • single language and multi-language site support
  • can be used to add author meta, FB meta and many more
  • uses inverse hierarchy to find meta data

Requirements : update your URLManager in /protected/config/main.php this way :



  1. Unpack 'yiiseo' folder to '/protected/modules/'
  2. Add folowing code to configuration files (protected/config/main.php)
                    'password'=>'111', // your default password is 111
            'class' => 'application.modules.yiiseo.components.SeoExt',

3.Run following line of code that suits you into your main layouts head :

  • In case the site has one language:
  • In case when site is multilingual:

4.Run module by typing in the link : http://yoursite.com/yiiseo/


When you enter this module - you'll see the usual CRUD. For starters - press CreateYiiSEOUrl. In the form below enter your meta data.

URL URL - is the relative link to your project. For example - if you want to write meta for the root(homepage) of your project - just write "/" in the URL.

Another example : You need a SEO meta data for http://example.com/sites/news page. Than in the URL - write down "sites/news" (without shash in the beggining)

If you want to use it for multiple links - for example you have links like this http://example.com/post/7 and you need all posts to have the same meta patern - just use following URL "post/*"

Main meta There are 3 metas that we devided from the rest : Title, meta description, meta keywords. In case of title or description - just type the text as you would usually do. In keywords write down phrases separated by commas.

Params Using the params is a tricky part. To use a param in main meta - just use the "{param}" in place where you want it to be. After that - choose it from the list. The list is auto generated from site models and there relations.

New issue

#8220 Спасибо за модуль и за быстрый ответ. Несмотря на то, что мой английский коряв, буду писать по-английски, чтобы интересующиеся нерусскоязычные тоже могли учавствовать в развитии модуля.

I'm using non standart directories structure in my projects, so line 303 in the SeoController find nothing:

$file_list = scandir($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/protected/models");

May be this variant will be more universal:

$file_list = scandir(Yii::getPathOfAlias('application.models'));

will be solved

#8216 Спасибо за замечание.Буду у рабочего компьютера - перезалью архив. Как временное решение - я добавил zip архив с этой папкой в раздел downloads этого проекта.

Thanks for your notice. I will reupload archive as soon as possible. As a temporary matter - I've added a zip archive with assets folder.

sry guys, had to fix a small bug just now. If you happen to add more than 3 meta's with properties you will run into it. It is now fixed and download archive is updated.
