How to Add Meta Tags to Blogger Homepage ?

Adding Meta Tags to Blogger

Meta tags (Title Tag and Description Tag) are very useful for SEO purposes, Search engines specially Google, Yahoo and Bing are giving very importance to meta tags.

There are two major meta tags (a) Meta Title (b) Meta Description

By default blogger has 'title tag' but do not have 'description tag'. So for adding meta description tag you can use the following steps.

(a) Log in to Blogger

(b) Go to Design

(c) Go to Edit HTML (Design -> Edit HTML)

(d) Find <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/> by Ctrl + F

(e) Add the meta tags below this line <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>

For example, If you want to add 'meta description tag' then add the following code below <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>

<meta content='Your Description' name='description'/>

Change "Your Description" to "your website description (which is describing your website)"

* You can also add other meta tags.

(f) Save Template

Note: Do not use "&" symbol in your description, If you want to use "&" then use only "and" because "&" may give you error for saving your template.
