GENERATE METATAGS FOR YOUR BLOG

Meta tags are HTML tags that you had to include in the basic template HTML of your blog or site. Inclusion of Meta tags in your HTML will help CRAWL ROBOTS to index your blog in relation to Meta Keywords given. So when someone search with any similar Keyword, then your blog will be on top of Search Engine Results. This will bring more traffic to your site within a shorter period of time.

You may use MetaTag Generator given at the bottom of the Page to develop MetaTags.

Some important Metatags

Title tag
The Page Title is the most important tag for search engine rankings. In certain templates for bloggers, it has been observed that adding this Title Tag inside the Meta showing title errors. In such case you may avoid this Title Tag and use the balance portion.

Description Meta Tag
The Description Meta Tag contain a description of the page, and it is advisable to contain words that are located within the page content. In some templates, Google shows errors in Description showing “ Duplicate Description”. This usually considered as harmless, but you may overcome this by either avoiding this tag or keeping separate description and title tags for each Page ( much difficult task, but I will explain if anyone like to know about this)

Keywords Meta Tag
Select 10 or 12 of the most popular and relevant keywords to that particular page or blog, ideally keyword phrases of 2 to 3 words, separated by a comma. Make sure that the keywords you use are located in the title, description and content of the page. But never copy the same description phrases.You may use Google Analytics in your blog or website to analyze which are the keywords relevant to your blog analyze the power of those key words.

Author Meta Tag
The Author Meta Tag is used to insert a name of the webmaster or company or the Owner of the blog.

Where to paste and place the Meta Tags?

It is always better to download a copy of your existing HTML to your computer as backup, before doing this. This will help to get your layout back incase you make any mistakes.
The ideal place is below the first <head> portion and above </head> portion.

How to add separate Metatags for each posts?

Benefits of adding separate Metatags:

1. Individual Metatag installation will help to give its own identity to each and every posts in Keyword, description meta elements.

2. If we add common MetaTags to our HTML, then chances are more for Google, to display some “Error” or “Warning” on “Title” and “Description” Metatags. Usually duplicate description issues are not much serious but duplicate title issues are known to be serious. We have some known cases of ban on some sites with huge Title issues.

3. If you add separate “Keywords” for each post, then you can select the most repeated word in that post as your Keyword. This will definitely boost your search engine rankings.

So it is always better to add separate Description and Keywords for each post.

First of all, Sign in to Blogger dashboard » Layout » Edit html. ( Don't forget to download a copy of your HTML as backup ) Now look into the HTML box. Find the <head> portion, with in the first few lines of HTML of your blog. After this < head> portion, just paste the Codes formatted as per direction from Step A and Step B given as below

Step A: Add meta tags to the homepage

Look for this or similar line in that HTML

<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>

Add the below given code just below this line. You had to change “yourblogname” to your blog name, put real description in the place of “ DESCRIPTION” and Keywords in the place of “ KEYWORDS”.

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/"'>
<meta content='DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORDS' name='keywords'/> </b:if>

Step B: Add meta description for another post,

Now copy the above three lines of codes again and paste just below that code again.Here you had to change “yourblogname” to your post URL, put related description in the place of “ DESCRIPTION” and related Keywords in the place of “ KEYWORDS”.

I will explain more with a post of my blog.

( My blog URL is http://businessvartha.blogspot.com and I am using post URL http://businessvartha.blogspot.com/2009/04/nominate-your-blog-for.html

So, the final code now looks something like

<head>

<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "
http://businessvartha.blogspot.com/”>
<meta content='DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORDS' name='keywords'/> </b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://businessvartha.blogspot.com/2009/04/nominate -your-blog-for.html">
<meta content='Nominate your blog, Bloggerschoice awards' name='description'/>
<meta content='Nominate, Awards, SEO, Traffic' name='keywords'/> </b:if>

Similarly, you can add MetaTags for all other posts and gain a much improved PageRank.

Reetha said...

Dear Satya. in case you are using Blogger as your platform, then no need of individual meta, according to new ranking system by Google. Google bot crawls automatically and lists ur webpage. But if u are using other blogging platforms, then use meta and also u can target other search engines

Satyajit said...

Thanks Reetha for ur reply.... :-)

Lose weight said...

With obesity predicted to affect more than 50 percent of the population in the next 40 years, the age of ‘fad diets’ and ‘quick weight loss’ has boomed to epic proportions. From the apple cider diet to the Quantum Wellness, to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, each of these weight loss programs all claim to promote immediate weight loss and increased vitality.
This is simply not correct. Fruits, veggies, whole grain, nut products, dried beans as well as oils, many include proteins. Meats in fact has high levels of sodium, fat and salt, particularly in red meat which is not so healthy due to its high levels of cholesterol. Whole grain, nuts, oils, and dried beans in fact onsist of more proteins than in meat products. Your own body requires at least 25 grams of protein per day ,so it is obvious you do not haveto eat only meat to obtain your day-to-day allowance.
