SEO Title: this is the text that appears at the top bar of your web browser. It is useful to include important keywords in the SEO title of the page. In this case - the manufacturer or brand's name. We recommend that you restrict the SEO title to 10 to 60 symbols. You can also insert the variables %%COMPANY_NAME%% and/or %%PAGE_NAME%% which will automatically be replaced with the actual information.
I will use custom urls: Check this box if you would like to provide the url address for this manufacturer's page, again - for better SEO.
Advice: If you use a custom url and you click the "Custom Url Is Current" button, the system will use the new manufacturer address but it will not stop using the old one, unless you have specifically enabled the SEO-Friendly urls from Settings-SEO. The custom url address should be different for each language. Here is an example:
English - http://your-web-site.com/Adidas-Clothing
Bulgarian - http://your-web-site.com/дрехи-adidas
