SEO & Search

With the SEO & Search features in Magento 2, you can add search terms and synonyms to ensure that customers using a search engine will land on your site and/or product page. The latest Search Engine Optimization capabilities are built in to Magento, ensuring that rich snippets and reviews are accessible easily by Google.

It takes less time to add a product to Magento 2as the steps are now fewer. Additionally, you can add a product to a category by typing in the category name without checking the category box.
You can also manage how Google displays your content directly from the Magento 2 dashboard (out of the box – no extensions needed).
You can customize which columns show in the Admin panel.


APIs of Magento 2

Magento platform is well-known for its modular approach to front-end as well as back-end interface. It makes the job hard for responsive web designers when a number of internal and external service modules need to be integrated for an integrated user experience.

Fortunately, various APIs for features, functionality, and services in Magento 2 are solving such issues quickly.

Magento 2 API is a concept of a service contract where each module/extension is showing off the functionality over the relevant API.


Faster and Easier Checkout

Also, product images now load in the order summary so customers can see the items they are about to buy.

Easier Google Setups

Magento 2 helps to integrate with Google Analytics and Adwords in an easiler way

Google Universal Analytics: Admins have benefited from Magento’s analytics integration for a while now, but Magento 2 introduces some updated features. The new product section can now track product impressions, product clicks and add-to-cart clicks. Every event between the homepage and confirmation page is now included.

Adwords: Magento 2 also includes Adwords conversion tracking in an advanced way. Adwords configuration settings are in “Store View,” so you can edit tracking configuration differently based on each version of your store.
