Meta Tags 2021 for Blogger

Candil.eu.org - Optimizing meta tags is the best way to provide information on a site to search engines like Google, Bing and so on. Not only that, meta tags are one of the most important components that must be implemented on a site or blog as the most basic onpage SEO optimization step.

If simplified, a meta tag is a set of HTML code that is installed on a site or blog written in the <head> section which serves to help search engines or social media to find out the overall summary of the contents of a site.

How Important Are Meta Tags?

In order to get a place in search results, a site or blog must include meta tags into the code structure of its blog, unless the blog is set for personal or specific readers. It can be said that the data that will appear in search results is mostly sourced from meta tags.

A good meta tag that is neatly arranged and complete will make your site indexed faster by search engines and is more likely to get a high position in search results.

What Should Be In A Meta Tag?

The most standard meta tag is the meta tag which provides some important information such as Site Title, Description, Keyword, and Thumbnail Image.

If the four data above already exist in your previous meta tag then it is enough to compete in search results. But not only your site that applies the above method, there are thousands of other sites with a similar niche that apply the same thing even with better quality content than your site. Are you able to compete with them?

Your only chance is to maximize your meta tags by adding some other code that is just as important to improve the quality of your site. So what are the things you need to add to your site? see the explanation below:

Meta Open Graph

Sources of traffic/visitors of a site are not only from search engines, most of them are also sourced from social media. it is also important to provide a summary of your site information to social media such as facebook, twitter and so on. The trick is to add an open graph meta tag on your site.

Site Authority

Contains proprietary information from a site, such as the site creator's name, site owner information link, webmaster verification code and so on.

Robot Meta Tags

This meta tag serves to provide more complex information to search engine robots, the important things that are usually added in this meta tag are information on the language of your site, the location of your site and several other things.

If you have applied all of the above information to your meta tags, you can be sure that your site will occupy a high position in search results. At least your site is indexed faster than usual.

What Does Writing Good Meta Tags Look Like?
