Meta Tags is the most basic elements of SEO. It is a must to know for every SEO practitioner as well experience developer. Are meta tags a factor in Google page rank?
Is it important?
What effect does it have in your site’s SEO?
Meta tags are placed inside your html’s head area.
<head>Meta tags are here</head>
There are three important parts of Meta tags that you can use:
1. Title – The title tag is the title text that is shown in search engine listings. I know that this is not necessarily a meta tag, but it similarly functions like one.
<title>Title text here</title>
2. Description – The meta description tag is very important element, where you would want to put your site’s summary or short detail. This is where you put what your site is all about and what you are offering people. It should not be too long because the search engines only read up to a certain number of words.
<meta name=”description” content=”This is where you put your site’s summary or short details”/>
3. Keywords – The meta keywords tag is where you put all of the keywords you use in your site. This is basically where you want the words which will take you to the top of the SERPs page to be. Your keywords are important – even if you take away all of the other words, the user should be able to know what your site is all about when they read your keywords. But now a day’s there’s no necessity to place keyword in meta.
<meta name=”keywords” content=”SEO, Hacker, Google, Search, etc”/>
These three things make up your meta tags.
