David Oti introduced a package called Laravel Meta Manager for Seo development. Laravel Meta Manager is an SEO tool that is used to improve the SEO of a website or specific page by adding recommended meta tags to your application.
These are the following features of this package.
You have to run this command to install this package via composer.
composer require davmixcool/laravel-meta-manager
Laravel 5.5+ uses Package Auto-Discovery, so doesn't require you to manually add the ServiceProvider.
After the installation, the next thing you have to do is insert the service provider within config/app.php.
'providers' => [ Davmixcool\MetaManager\MetaServiceProvider::class, ];
After that you have to run this command to get the config of Laravel Meta Manager.
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Davmixcool\MetaManager\MetaServiceProvider
You can set up the default application meta in the
meta.php config file. (Optional but recommended)

Once the configuration is complete you can then add the below code at the meta area of the page, where you want to add meta tags;
The above will use the predefined configurations to prefill the generated meta tags. However, if you chose to define certain options on the fly then you can use the code below.
@include('meta::manager', [ 'title' => 'My Example Title', 'description' => 'This is my example description', 'image' => 'Url to the image', ])
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>Document</title> @include('meta::manager', [ 'title' => 'My Example Title', 'description' => 'This is my example description', 'image' => '', ]) </head> <body> </body> </html>
