In the world of professional web design, Magento has become the No.1 eCommerce solution. That’s because Magento developers like iWeb know it offers so much functionality and so many features straight ‘out of the box’ – which allows a website design company to offer a faster turnaround to clients.
But because Magento is an open source platform produced by a community of professional web developers, there are also a host of extra plug-ins available. These allows for full customisation of any eCommerce website design so that it fulfils its ultimate purpose much more efficiently – and that’s to sell to customers.
Here’s a brief round up of some of the most popular and useful Magento plug-ins available:
Yoast MetaRobots is a useful SEO plug-in that adds meta robot tags to Magento pages.
Remerce CMS Meta Robots is another meta tag plug-in for Magento.

MailChimp then displays this information as a breakdown on a campaign report.
