Meta tags and its Importance in blogger’s blog
Meta tags are html codes that are inserted into the header of a webpage,They can actually be used for various purpose,But when talking in terms of Search engine optimization we talk about meta keywords,meta description and meta title.
- Meta keyword tags are required to express most important theme of the page in few targeted words.long ago meta tags used to very important for getting top position in search engines,but its no the case now as all major search engines changed its rankings.
- Meta description tags are used to give a brief description of your web page and it still holds some importance in search engines.Description tags should not be lesser than 49 characters and should not exceed 200 characters.Description of your page is also shown on the search engine page under your page title.
- Meta title tags contain the title of the web page,I don’t know any importance of this tag from seo point of view.Its just useless to put title tag 2 times in your webpage one in <meta> form and another in <title> form.I doubt why a big site like Amazon.com use meta title tag
By default blogger doesn’t support meta tags but you can hack the blogger template to put it.
