Some Drupal 8 SEO modules to use on just about every Drupal site.

Google Analytics

Adds the Google Analytics web statistics tracking system to your website.

Simple Sitemap

Every webpage needs an automatic XML sitemap generator for SEO reasons. This module aims to be a replacement for the xmlsitemap module for Drupal 8. Simple xml sitemap is lighter than xmlsitemap in terms of resources and usability. Its functionality differs from xmlsitemap, see this post for details.


Use this module when you are running multiple Drupal sites from a single code base (multisite) and you need a different robots.txt file for each one. This module generates the robots.txt file dynamically and gives you the chance to edit it, on a per-site basis, from the web UI.


This is the new module home for a unified redirection API (also replaces path_redirect and globalredirect).

Meta Tag

The Metatag module allows you to automatically provide structured metadata, aka “meta tags”, about a website. In the context of search engine optimization, when people refer to meta tags they are usually referring to the meta description tag and the meta keywords tag that may help improve the rankings and display of a site in search engine results. In addition, the module provides support for meta tags (Open Graph Protocol from Facebook, Twitter Cards from Twitter) that allow control of how content appears when shared on social networks.

Yoast SEO for Drupal

Improve your Drupal SEO: this module helps you optimize content around keywords in a fast, natural, non-spam way.
