Meta description and meta keywords are the most popular html tags which are still recommended despite many arguments by several expert Search engine Optimizers. The first thing that every blogger must do after creating a log is to optimize his template by submitting it to search engines and by adding important meta tags inside the template. To make your job easy I have created a simple Meta Tag Generator Tool below which will help you create important tags within seconds with no SEO knowledge required at all!
Follow these tips for writing best blog description and for choosing the most relevant keywords for your blog.
Describe your blog in max 150 letters. The Character Counter tool can help you. For example I have chosen the following words for describing my blog,
A Blog about Blogger Tricks, Blogger Templates, Widgets, SEO, Make Money Online, CSS and HTML Tricks etc.
You can choose a similar format to describe your blog with most relevant words.
Note:- I have enclosed the meta description inside a dynamic HTML tag in order to avoid duplicate content issue. Confused? Let me explain. If Meta description appears for all pages in your blog then search engine robots would think that all your pages are having same description. Since robots deal each page as a separate website therefore your blog could get penalized for using same meta description over and over again. To avoid this I have added two pieces of code before and after meta description so that it may appear to robots at homepage only. Following are the two codes added to the tool by default,
<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<META NAME="Description" CONTENT="Your Blog description">
Choose words that describe the core topics of your blog. Keywords are high traffic targeted words that define your blog content. Most people use dozens of most competitive keywords but doing this is unnecessary and further effects your search engine listing. Choose few but smart keywords that may reflect the overall content of your blog. Google keyword Tool can immensely help you in choosing the right keywords. The best tip is to use similar keywords as used by your competitors. You can press Ctrl + U to open the source file of your competitor while you are on his blog. Through source file you can easily see what keywords and description your competitor is using.
Write a maximum of three words per keyword and separate each keyword using a comma. See my keywords as an example,
Blogger tricks,blogger tips, SEO guide, make money online, blogger widgets, css html tricks
This is not a very important tag but still everyone likes to attach his name to his website so why should you left behind! :p Simply write your full name and avoid using nicknames or special symbols.
If you don't want to add your name then simply leave the blank empty in the tool below.
Sometimes you don't want search engine robots to crawl and index your blog so you can simply tell the robots that don't crawl the data of the blog using the No follow tag or No index tag. By default blogger tags all blogs as ALL
If you don't want to be bothered with this tag then simply leave the blank empty in the tool below.
