Adding Meta Tags to your Blogger Blog

What are meta tags and why should I add meta tags to my Blog ?

Meta tags are the magic words that tells the search engine (google/ yahoo/ bing...) bots about, the keywords and tags in your content, it tells the search engine what your blog is about, so that your blog get emphasised on those keywords. Adding meta tags is an important factor in Organic search engine Optimisation (SEO). 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 your webpages index correctly and accurately.

For Example :-
As you can see in the above screenshot, " hacks, help, tips and tricks for open source learners and hackers " is the meta tags description which I added to my blog.

Unfortunately Blogger doesn't have a add Tags feature so, this is how you can add Tags to your blog on blogger :-

(1). After signing in to your blog, go to Design.
(2). Choose edit HTML option.
And now check for these lines in codes :-

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

Now add the following code to your html code, below the above lines :-
 <meta content='DESCRIPTION HERE' name='description'/>
<meta content='KEYWORDS HERE' name='keywords'/>
<meta content='AUTHOR NAME HERE' name='author'/>

<meta name="keywords" content= " humour, pictures, jokes, Template, Competition, tutorial, hacks, tips, tricks" />
<meta name="description" content="A cool Blog on college Life and Stuff, Quizzing, Dramatics, football and stuff" />
<meta name="author" content="Aaditya Chauhan" />
<meta name="ROBOTS" content="ALL" />
Replace the red portion with your tags and description and the green part with your name.

That's it ! You have successfully added the metatags to your blogger blog. You can check out your tags description, when you see your blog on Google.
