A client of mine has a Magento site set up, I've been asked to help them out with the SEO. I've never used Magento before, didn't even know that it exists. I need to find the actual files so I can start making edits to the code. There is a number of errors and faults related to SEO on the site that needs to be changed.

I thought that Magento would have some sort of file directory so I can edit them.

Any help on this would be great.

It wouldn't let me post a comment, so I'll add the version here the version is

Thank you

  • Can you please specify Magento Version? – Abhishek Panchal Sep 13 '17 at 14:00
  • You need access to the server for file editing, but I do not recommend editing them directly on the server. – St3phan Sep 13 '17 at 14:06

I would take a read through this list of tutorials on how to make different changes SEO wise in Magento:

Magestore Magento SEO

Most of them will not involve touching the files you will just need backend access depending on the SEO changes you need to make.


For products, categories and static pages (like homepage) you don't need to access the code and for sure you should not modify the core files to get your result.
You just need admin access.
When editing a category, product or static page you will find 3 fields for meta data. (meta title, description, keywords). For products and categories they are even multilanguage.
Just change the values and you don't need to touch the code.
