A fitting meta description is important to ensure your site is found by search engines and looks engaging on social media. This article explains how to adapt it for the opportunities page. At the bottom of this article you will also find a video.

Customize the meta description of the opportunity page:

  1. Go to the administration panel

  2. Go to the settings

  3. In the navigation bar, go to "Customize names"

  4. If necessary, scroll down a bit until you see the heading "Meta titel for discover opportunities page"

  5. Edit the meta title and meta description

There are four fields for the meta description:

  • Meta title for the discover opportunities page

  • Meta title for the discover opportunities page with a city filter

  • Meta description for the opportunities activities page

  • Meta description for the discover opportunities page with a city filter

When you modify the meta title/description for the discover opportunities page, you modify them for the opportunities page without a city filter. The other two are the title and description if there is a city filter.

You don't have to add your own description for each city: instead of the city name, use a variable that automatically changes to the name of the filtered city: %{city} (you can take the default values below as an example). Since users are often looking for volunteer activities in their own city, this is an important variable to use!

If you haven't adjusted the meta title and meta description, the following default values are used in English and Dutch:

Meta titel for discover opportunities page

Volunteer in your community

Vrijwilligerswerk in jouw stad

Meta titel for discover opportunities page with city filter set

Volunteer in %{city}

Vrijwilligerswerk in %{city}
