The page title should tell what the page is about. In WooCommerce, you will have categories page and product page. You should use keywords on your page title. But remember that “content is for people”. And don’t forget the readability.
3. Enable Breadcrumbs
Breadcrumb links appear along the top of product pages and help visitors move back to previous category or landing pages easily.
