Meta Tags

What is a Meta Tag ?

Meta Tags gives the search tools informations to reference your web pages and are placed in the part of any blogs or websites.

Those Meta Tags have informations on your page : title, description, keywords. But also the author name, E-mail, language, region, copyright, etc.

Meta Tags are very important to get in the first pages of a search tool and to get referenced.

But every Meta Tags became useless, excepted the one, which we are going to show you.

How does it work ?

You simply add a code in the part of your blog and Google and other bots will use it as your blog description.
This is not seen in any part of your blog, only in the HTML code.

How to add a Meta Tag

To be efficient you need to define manualy one Meta Tag per pages but we can work it out to make only one.
We are going to define a description for your starting page, and we will let Google choose a description for all of your other pages.

Now connect to Blogger, and go to your "Modify HTML code" page, look for and add those lines right after it.

"<meta content='Keywords' name='keywords'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<meta content='Description of blog as it appears on Google' name='description'/>
</b:if>
<meta content='ALL' name='ROBOTS'/>"

Exemple of what it would look like :
You need to use one or two sentences and make them short, and don't forget to add the keywords in which you want to be referenced :D

But
: Your modifications can take hours/days to take effect into Google.
