Easily set up and manage redirects (301/302) from a friendly, easy to use interface within your control panel. No more messing around with .htaccess!

Multisite and Localization

Aardvark will provide full SEO functionality for Statamic instances running multisite as well as providing useful information for multisite instances running over multiple locales.


Aardvark SEO will automatically generate a list of <link rel="alternate" hreflang="x"> tags for Statamic instances running multiple sites where content is shared across locales. Additionally, you can manually configure alternate urls using the 'Alternate URLs' table in the on-page SEO settings.


Automatically adds self-referencing canonical tags where appropriate and gives an option for user-override values.


Get help with one of the most important aspects of modern SEO: Schema. A schema graph will be generated for each page which will pull data from the Aardvark global settings including things like the Organization and social media profiles linked to the website, additionally, WebSite and WebPage schema will be generated automatically.

Automatic breadcrumbs generation

Help Google understand your site structure and get enhanced SERP listings with breadcrumbs. Aardvark SEO will automatically add JSON-LD breadcrumbs for all pages, using the trail Google provides documentation for further information.

Easy extra schema insertion

Generated your own schema in JSON-LD? Just paste it into the schema box and Aardvark will include it on the page for you.

Easy webmaster verification

You can quickly verify your Google Search Console, Bing, Yandex, and Baidu Webmaster Console accounts through our interface, rather than modifying your code or uploading additional files.

Configurable and automatic XML sitemaps

XML Sitemaps will be automatically generated for live pages on your site. This means unpublished pages will be removed from your sitemap and you can edit the priority and change frequency on a per-page basis under the 'SEO' section.

On-page SEO

A new 'SEO' section is added to the editor screen for any Pages, Collection entries, or Taxonomy terms from which the SEO and share data will be managed.

Special fields for the meta title and description will give you hints about the length of the content enabling you to optimize your metadata for search engines - a Google search preview will help to visualise this.

Social media and Open Graph

Aardvark provides you with full control over how your site looks when shared on social media through generating data and filling Open Graph and Twitter meta tags. In addition, you can set links to each of your social media profiles in the SEO > Social menu.

The social media data can be accessed on the frontend through the {{ aardvark-seo:socials }} tag, use it to loop through the provided social media links.

Index and crawling control

Marketing tools

Defaults can be set per Collection or Taxonomy, additionally defaults can be set for Pages. Defaults may be localised on sites running in multiple languages.


Fully integrated permissions system meaning that you can give users access to all, some, or none of the SEO capabilities provided by Aardvark.
