Docusaurus takes care of both site level SEO and page specific SEO based on the content of your site.

Site SEO helps users reach your site. Page specific SEO helps your users find answers to their questions quickly.

* - `${title} · ${tagline}`
* - `Image for ${title} · ${tagline}`
title: 'Docusaurus',
tagline: 'Easy to Maintain Open Source Documentation Websites',
* The following fields are used for `og:image` and `twitter:image`
baseUrl: '/',
siteUrl: '',
themeConfig: {
* relative to your site's "static" directory
* cannot be svg
image: 'img/docusaurus.png',

Page specific SEO
