I want to set meta title dynamically for specific category only and i getting meta title information based on url id(?id=1). events.xml

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
<event name="catalog_category_load_after">
    <observer instance="StackExchange\Magento\Observer\Frontend\Catalog\CategoryLoadAfter" 


public function execute(
\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer
) {
  $category = $observer->getEvent()->getCategory();
  $metaTitle = $category->getName() ." - xxx.club";
  $metaDesc = "Place order for " .$category->getName() . " with us and get huge sales and discount!";
  if ($category instanceof \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category) {
  //$oldMetaTitle = $category->getMetaTitle();
  $oldMetaDesc = $category->getMetaDesc();

I followed above solution. But its applying for all the categories in website.

Any help can be appreciated. thanks.

I suggest to use the similar logic like described in https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/357049/91782

You need to create plugin for \Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\View and modify metadata on afterSetLayout.

Don't forget to change $subject, $result and return type to \Magento\Catalog\Block\Category\View

// category object is
$category = $subject->getCurrentCategory();
if ($category) {
    // update metadata

    // in original logic also present following
    $pageMainTitle = $layout->getBlock('page.main.title');
    if ($pageMainTitle) {

Alternative way is use beforeSetLayout instead of afterSetLayout and try to update category data. Signature:

    public function beforeSetLayout(CategoryBlock $subject, LayoutInterface $layout): array
        $category = $subject->getCurrentCategory();
        if ($category) {
            $metaDesc = "Place order for " .$category->getName() . " with us and get huge sales and discount!";
            // ...

        return [$layout];

I suggest to use afterSetLayout and update data into page config instead of replace category data runtime.
