The Categories SEO tab is where you can configure the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of your online store pages.
In this section you can create descriptive keywords to embed into the HTML of your category pages.
Search engines, like Google, index your store pages. By adding relevant keywords, it is easier for potential customers to find your products.
For example, if you have a category called “Work Shirts,” you might add keywords to the category page like “work shirt, outdoor shirt, outdoor clothing.” When a potential customer then searches Google using the term “work shirt,” a link to your category page will appear in the Google results list.

In the META Tag section, include any desired keywords, and create a META description if you want. The description is what appears as part of the search engine results for your category page.
Meta descriptions can technically be any length, but Google will truncate them within a search results page. Best practice is to keep them shorter than 160 characters, and to keep in mind that your more important content should be included early on in the description. In other words, your goal with your description is provide information and drive people to click through to your store.
The Title section is where you give the category page and Page Title.
