Adjustable elements in your ‘Site wide settings’

Site Profile

Your ‘Site Profile’ options apply to your overall site identity. These settings are especially important for search engine queries and social media sharing.

  • Project name: your project name will default to the name you submitted when signing up for your Bandzoogle website. If you want to adjust the spelling, decide to change your band name, or decide to use the website for a different project, you can adjust this ‘Project name’ at any time.
  • Website is for: select from the following options
    • Musician/Group
    • Music-related Company
    • Entertainment industry
    • Other: select ‘Type’
  • Short description: add a brief description of your project. Be sure to include your project name, genre or style, and any other information that you’d like to appear in search engine results.
  • City/Town
  • Time zone
  • Site language: choose the language you’d like the default text on your site to appear as. You can learn more about changing your website’s language here. If you’d like to create a bilingual site, read more here.
  • Project image: set the default project image that will be displayed when you share your website URL on other platforms. .

Site Icon

A site icon, sometimes called a favicon, appears next to your website’s project name in the browser tab. In this area, you can upload your own site icon as a .jpg, .png, .gif, or .ico file.

Footer Text

The ‘Footer Text’ option offers simple text formatting. Unlike your ‘Sitewide footer section’, here you can add short text that displays in your footer across your entire website. This can include promotional material or other important website notes. To edit your ‘Footer Text,’ follow these steps:

If you would like to attach terms to your website, you can use this field to let visitors know the conditions of interacting with your website content. This can include copyright information, what terms of use apply to your website and services, and how to contact you for copyright infringement. To add your website terms, follow these steps:

Once added, a ‘Terms’ link will appear in the footer of your website and will connect to a page containing the content you’ve entered here.

Sitemaps

Verifying your site and submitting your sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools helps with your site’s ranking in Google Search. In your ‘Sitemaps’ area, you can verify your site and submit your sitemap to Google.

Please review our ‘Google Verification and Sitemap submission’ Help article for full details.

Payment Settings

To receive payments from purchases made from your Bandzoogle website, you are required to connect a payment processor. We offer two options for your payment settings: Paypal and Stripe. To connect to Paypal and/or Stripe from your ‘Site wide settings,’ follow these steps:

  1. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’

Headers & Metatags

The headers and metatags section of your ‘Site wide settings’ is dedicated to the < head > element of your website. Bandzoogle already populates your < head > with your < title > and < metaname > components, but if you want to add additional HTML, meta tag, or Javascript code, you can do so in this section.

Warning: This is an advanced feature. Only use this if you understand what it means. Misuse can easily make your website stop working! We cannot provide support for problems caused by what you add here.

Facebook Pixel

Facebook Pixel is a tool used to track conversions from your Facebook ad campaigns. If you would like to add a Facebook Pixel to your website, you can add it in this section of your ‘Site wide settings.’
