How to use Meta Tags

The META tag is primarily used to help search engines better index a document by supplying additional information about the document. The types of additional information that META tags can provide include an author's name, a description or short abstract of a document, or a set of keywords for indexing a document. Providing this type of additional information should increase the chance that users will find your documents -- the information they want -- on the Web. In addition to providing indexing information, META tags can also be used to refresh a Web page or to redirect a user from one Web page to another.

Here Are The Examples

Where can I put my Meta Tags?

META Tags are properly place inside the <head> tags.


<title>Blogger: yimzWik</title>
<meta name="DESCRIPTION" content="put your page description here"/>
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow" />
<meta name="keywords" content="put your keywords here" />

As you can see All of the Meta Tags are inside the <head> tags.

How to Use the META Description Tag

The META Description Tag is where you put a brief description about your blog or Web Page.

Example of a Meta Description Tag:

<meta name="description" content="put your page description here" />

How to Use the META Keywords Tag

The Meta Keywords tag is used to be an important way to get your page listed under specific keywords under the search engines. Today major search engines like Google and Alta Vista ignore this tag, and the keywords tag no longer has the significance it used to have in the early days of the web.

Example of a Meta Keyword Tag:

<meta name="keywords" content="put your keywords here" />
