Title and Navigation Menu Settings
This Section defines those settings of the navigation menu that apply to this specific page we are updating. For example, the control panel navigation menu settings on the home page will be different from the ones made on a gallery page, or other.
- The Title entry is your setting for the <title> ... </title> tag in the header code of the webpage. For visitors to your page, it also shows up in the tab of the website page as illustrated below. We highly recommend that you create search engine friendly Title Tags as discussed further in the Configure Page SEO article.
- The link text defines the page on the main navigation menu making up our website. In this example the navigation menu has Home, Services, Book Now, About Us, and so on. You can keep the link texts simple because the search engine would be looking at your Title entry for more details. In the example below, the link text would be kept as "Home" while the Title would be updated to something more searchable like "Best Pet Sitting Services in Chicago Area | Your business name".
- Who can see menu link helps you define who should be seeing this page. The system can recognize if the visitor to the page is the Manager (ex. owner), Client (ex. pet owner), Worker (ex. professional, 3rd party, staff), or General Public (ex. prospective customer, or future employee who wants to apply for a job). If they can't see the page, then the only way to get to it is if they have the link. This is described further below. With Easy Busy Pets, this is one of the ways a landing page is created.
