Do you know adding meta tags is so important if you want to get more traffic from search engines like google,yahoo,msn,etc,especially the meta description is the most important one.
If you don't know what meta tags are,Meta tags are the tags which describes your site and tells the search engines what your site is all about.Adding meta tags is an important factor in SEO.(Search Engine Optimisation).Meta tags allows search engines to index your web pages more accurately. In other words,Meta tags communicate with the search engines and tells more information about your site and make it index correctly and accurately.
Here is an example.This is what I got when I typed 'Kranthi tips' in the Google Search Engine.
As you can observe.'Tips and tricks............' is the meta tags description which I added to my site.
We have to add two meta tags to the head section of the template.One is the Meta description which describes your site and another one is Meta Keywords which tells about your site keywords(what your site is all about)
Here is how to add meta tags to your blogger(blogspot) blog:
1.Sign in to your blogger dashboard>click the 'layout' button[see the screenshot below]
2.Click on the 'Edit html' tab
Here is the code you have to add
|<meta content='DESCRIPTION HERE' name='description'/>|
<meta content='KEYWORDS HERE' name='keywords'/>
<meta content='AUTHOR NAME HERE' name='author'/>
KEYWORDS:Write the keywords of your blog
AUTHOR NAME:Write the author's name(Your name)
3.Add the above code just after this [Look at the below screenshot]
|<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>|
Don't forget to add description and keywords.
and save the changes.
Several people were filling with just the keywords in the description.DON'T DO THAT.Google and other search engines will ban your site from the search engines list if you did so.And also,don't repeat the keyword more than 3 times.
That's it!You have sucessfully added the metatags to your blogger(blogpsot) blog.If you want to check whether you added the meta tags correctly or not,just type 'meta tags analyzer tool' in the google and you will find so many sites which can check whether you have added the tags correctly or not.
