When an online marketer is designing and setting up web pages they may use a Meta information to allow search engines to gain an understanding of what their website or web page is designed to do for visitors.

In the following article I will try to cover almost all the necessary things related to META Tags. OK Then we will first start of with the basic:


What are META Tags?

Meta tags are nothing but simple HTML codes that are inserted into the header of the blog. These tags are not visible to readers. META Tags basically tells the search engine spiders about specific things related to your blog.

META Tags Looks Like This:
Either: <meta name="name" content="content">

Or: <meta http-equiv="name" content="content">


What are the Benefits Of META Tags?

Well, META tags are proved important in SEO. Using of META tags certainly helps you to improve your search rankings. From the past few years META Tags hugely came into popularity and everyone started using that in their blogs in a way to help their search rankings.

How To Use META Tags?

Well, Looking on the internet I came to know that there are almost more than 200+ types of META Tags; If you don't believe me then have a look by Clicking Here!

But many of them are not used as if like they have become almost extinct. So I will only tell you about some of the recommended META tags which you can easily implement and get into working.

To add these Meta Tags in your blogger blog,
Go to Layout section of your blog>Edit Html. Then Just paste any of the Meta Tags listed below just after starting <head> tag.

NOTE: Sometimes while adding these Meta Tags into your blogger template you could get a problem like this: "The element type "meta" must be terminated by the matching end-tag"

Then in such a situation just add "/" at the ending of the Meta Tags before ">" So it would like this:
<meta name="name" content="content"/>


So let's look at some of the Meta Tags:

1.Meta Title
These tags are used to tell the title of the page. The Meta Title tag would normally have the same title as contained in the <title></title> tag.

For Example:
<META NAME="Title" CONTENT="Your Page Title Here like Blogging Tips">

Since, Your title tag also comes in the <title></title> area, so there is not a very high necessity of using this tag but it depends on your choice.

2.Meta Description
This tag gives a short description of the your page. It is always recommended to keep your Meta Description Tag up to 150 Characters.

For Example:
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="Blogging and Webmaster Tips for your blog.">

3.Meta Keywords
This tag is used to list keywords that define/tells the content of your site. Keywords are used by search engines to properly index your site in addition to words from the title, document body, and other areas.
Ensure that you choose keywords that are relevant to your site. Try to keep your keywords with maximum 30 words of 500 Characters. Also avoid using any keyword more than 5 times otherwise for excessive repetition many search engines will penalize you for this.

For Example:
<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="make money, blogging tips, blogger templates">

4.Meta Robots
These tags control the search engine robots on a per-page basis. There are many types of Meta Robots tags through which you can tell the robots what content to index and spider.I will give examples for few of them with one line explanation about what it does.

For Example:
-Tell search engines not to index your pages (noindex)
<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

-Tell search engines to index your site but not to follow links (nofollow)
<meta name="robots" content="nofollow">

-Tell search engines to not index or follow links on your web page (noindex,nofollow)
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

-Tell search engines to index your site and follow links (index,follow)
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">

-Tell search engines not to cache your pages (noarchive)
<meta name="robots" content="noarchive">

Well there are more than 101 types of Meta Robots Tags to blog certain things. Have a look here.
It is recommended not to use any stupid Meta Robots which would block the access of spiders resulting in poor rankings.

5.Meta Abstract
This tag gives a short summary of the description. The content for this tag is usually 10 words or less.

For Example:
<META NAME="Abstract" CONTENT="Blogging Tips For Bloggers">

As I told you that there are more than 200 types of Meta Tags, of which more than 75% are useless nowadays for many bloggers. So the above tags are always recommended to be used in your blog.

You can also try this cool tool for generating your Meta Tags easily. Just input your things and let script serve your Meta Tags.

Okay. I think that should be enough to know about Meta Tags and you've just learned the most useful ones. Congratulations. So here we end up with this article and see you till next article.

@Brillie

To do that, Just go to your blogger account>blog>layout>Edit HTML

There paste any Meta Tag just after opening of < head > tag. Yes just after that tag only..

Also note that sometimes while adding these Meta Tags into your blogger template you could get a problem like this: "The element type "meta" must be terminated by the matching end-tag"

For this see the article above..
