Squirrly Snippet

The Squirrly Snippet Tool shows you how your article will look like on search engines. By customizing it, you will boost the conversion rate.

Note that ‘search engines’ does not only stand for Google, Bing, Yahoo or Yandex. Social media networks are also based on a search engine premise. Pinterest, for instance, is a platform where people can find you via a keyword-based inquiry.

After the inquiry, the search engine provides result pages. What you see on those result pages is called meta-information.

By default, Squirrly Snippet generates the meta-information for your article by:

  1. Taking the first lines of your article and automatically adding them to the meta description.
  2. Making sure the keyword you optimized for appears in the selected lines.
  3. Including the featured image.

If you want to go beyond the default options, Squirrly Snippet Tool allows you to:

  • Customize the Meta Description
  • Customize the Title
  • Insert an Image for Social Sharing

The wrong thing to do for an automatic SEO software would be not to give you the possibility to customize your metadata. It would be counterintuitive to take the same one being used for the main site for each page. This will only generate duplicates.

With its customization options, Squirrly Snippet Tool is a necessary feature helping you control the way Google lists and displays your posts.

  1. Stupid thing doesn’t work at all. It just flat out won’t work. Now I have to uninstalled Squirrly and put Yoast back on, because this snippet thing is ruining my descriptions and titles for all pages.

      Hey, Please make sure you have Squirrly 5.3.1 installed … Squirrly 5.3 has a big change in SEO and we had to make it work with all the themes … We’ve made the required changes and now we have positive feedback for 5.3.1 version.

      Have a great year!

      Hey,

      It can be .htaccess permission in your blog root. Squirrly verifies the pages on frontend and id the blog doesn’t allow this you probably get an error like this.

      Try to remove the restrictions from .htaccess or talk with your host about this issue.

      Best regards,

    Good day!

    I have a question. Why I can not manage keyword in Snippet? Squirrly insert meta title in keywords automatically. How can I change it?

    Best regards, Igor

  5. Great Plugin.. Its really better than Yoast and for those who know nothing about SEO.

  6. HI Calin Vingan did a very good job and you just eased the word for any new SEO student who want to learn it for professional purpose and please carry on your work. Thanks

  7. Calin Vingan

    Excellent. It will definitely work for improving google ranks. Thanks a lot

  8. The info that I have included on the snippit is appearing on the actual page of my website – I need to remove it from the front end as it looks ridiculous. Can anyone help?

    1. Calin Vingan

      If you set in Settings > Reading a Static page as a Home Page then, if you edit the snippet for that page, it will appear in the Home Page.

      To remove the custom snippet, go to that page and reset the changed inside that snippet

    Hello,

    can i use both Squirrly nd Yoast together? Cause i found it diffcult to change from yoast to Squirrly because of i’ve already use/edit snippet on yoast before, so i don’t know if i deactivate the yoast plugin all my snippet edited for a particular post will be transfer to Squirrly.

    1. Calin Vingan

      If you have the SEO optimisation made with Yoast, when you deactivate Yoast the title and description will be imported by Squirrly in Squirrly Snippet.

        Thanks,

        There is a problem, yoast normally make use of %%title%% and %%sep%%, Squirrly dose not use it, so after i deactivated the yoast, these tags nw display (%%title%%) instead of the article title.

        Please how can i solve this issue?

        1. Calin Vingan

          If you use the custom title and description in the Yoast snippet tool, Yoast will overwrite the pattern and save the custom data.

          If you deactivate Yoast, we will get that data in Squirrly Snippet Tool.

          We do not use pattern meta in Squirrly SEO

          Hope this helps

          1. Spicy

            I Understand, if its so, that means the problem can’t be solve and i can’t use the plugin while am having this problem because i have more than 3,000 contents on my web and i can’t start editing them one by one. Once yoast get deactivated, squirrly get activated , %%title%% %%sep%% will occur at my header title.

          2. Calin Vingan

            Squirrly works with Yoast activated. You can switch off the SEO from Squirrly and use the content optimization tool from Squirrly.

  10. Suddenly my Open Graph Protocol doesn’t work.

    When I share to Facebook, the image for my post no longer works, just the title. This has only occurred the last few days. There is also an issue with GZIP compression, I have it installed, but again, Squirrly no longer recognises it.

    Are these known issues. I have both set up on my WordPress site, but they no longer show as working, or work. I’m confused as to why they suddenly no longer work

    1. Calin Vingan

      Hi,

      Thank you for your comment.

      I checked your blog and it has the Open Graph. I tried to share and it looks okay.
      Did you find the solution or it was a cache issue?

      I will verify the GZIP in Audit and see if there is a crawler problem.

    Thanks, by means Squirrly, I became more easily create articles

  12. Marjolein

    I have squirrly on my home blog. There the snippet tool works. And I have it installed on a business page, live assistant works but not the snippet tool. I can’t seem to find an option where I can get the snippet tool to enable. Sad because I love it

    1. Calin Vingan

      Hi. Please send us a screenshot of your business page at support [at] squirrly.co.

  13. Hey,

    I am using Yoast for meta title and meta-description. I want to turn these off in Squirrly, because the checks I do with Moz are flagging that there are 2 meta-descriptions.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks,

  14. it’s great tool that generate meta for article, above is the new version of this. thanks for sharing.
