Add Meta Tags in Your Blog to Increase Page Rank

How to add Description and Keyword Meta Tags to Blogger blogs?

If you are a webmaster or site creator, you have to make sure that the site content reaches your target audience. One way of doing that is by carefully assigning title tags as well as meta descriptions and keywords to your web pages. Meta description tags also improve the chances of your site being found and clicked on in the SERPs.

Though Blogger is a Google product, blogs hosted on blogger do not have support for meta descriptions and keywords by default. If you have ever tried adding keywords or description meta tags to your Blogger pages, you might have seen that there is no easy way of implementing that. Here is a workaround to make changes to your blogger template in order to add description and keyword metatags of your choice to your blogger top page as well as to your posts.

In the Layout panel of your blog, click on Edit HTML.

Click on Download Full Template and save a backup copy of your template. This will come in handy to undo any changes in case the changes do not work as expected

Look for the following code in the template

Add the following code immediately after the code

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<meta content='Your Description' name='description'/>
<meta content='Your Keywords' name='keywords'/> </b:if>

*Replace the word Your Description with a description for your blog top page.

*Replace the word Your Keywords with a list of keywords separated by commas, relevant to your blog top page.
