Cascade is built to provide search engines with a lot of key information. The Metadata tab within Cascade is the area that controls which keywords and descriptions are found by Search Engines for your website content.

Key fields in the Metadata tab include: 

  • Summary
  • Teaser
  • Keywords
  • Description

JMU also uses the Google Custom Search Engine to search our website. If you have any key search terms you would like us to elevate, a 'promotion' can be created. For example if you go to the JMU homepage and search for "class search" you will be directed to this link: https://mymadison.jmu.edu/pprd/classsearch.html
