It's important that users can be able to find easily a public product or a help doc on Google search engine.
Thanks to the following features, your GitBook projects are SEO-friendly, with little or no configuration on your end:
Custom domains (e.g:
All public content is cached and served via our global CDN
All content is responsive and mobile-friendly
We automatically generate SEO-friendly content (URLs, HTML, etc.)
We automatically generate sitemaps based on your ToC
We generate SEO friendly URLs based on each page's title
The HTML we generate covers the essentials:
We generate HTML titles and descriptions based on your GitBook page's title and description
We avoid duplicate content through smart canonical URLs
Image captions are rendered as alt attributes
We don't generate keyword meta tags, because modern search engines do not use them to rank pages. This was officially confirmed by Google a few years ago.
We don't yet integrate with Google Search Console, if this is important, you can upvote this existing feature-request.
