Why haven't you mentioned Drupal 9? As of December 2021 I've updated most of the sites I look after to Drupal 9 (experience: mixed). I haven't decided how to label future version compatibility as D10 will be coming soon as well. The upgrade_status module is superb. You're bound to have issues with composer. Also watch out for a nasty session headers bug with redirect_after_login.

"Essential"

This comes with a whole series of modules, including metatag_verification that will allow you to insert a google-site-verification tab. Instructions

How to add it to a content type/bundle:

  • You need to add the metatag field to the content type and position it on the form (it'll display as a disclosure triangle in the sidebar)
  • You also need to configure the level of available options at /admin/config/search/metatag/settings
