How can I use Meta Tags on my website?

Then we will see some examples of the methods with whom you can take advantage of the Meta Tags of your own website.


1. Add a list of Key-words for search engines

Let's see an example of a keywords meta tag. This meta tag, enables you to create a list of Key-words, which are separated by comma and show which is the content of your page. Such meta tag could be the following:


< meta name="keywords" content="word1, word2, word3" >


2. Add a description for search engines to your site

The description meta-tag is the short description you see below your site, when Google ranks it for example in their results page. It must be a short sentence / paragraph for your site:

< meta name="description" content="This is a short description for my website in a small paragraph." >


3. Add information about the author of the document

The author meta-tag provides information about who wrote the document:


< meta name="author" content="John Doe" >


4. Refresh your site or redirect the visitor to another address

The following meta-tag refreshes a page after 30 seconds:


< meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30" > ,


while this one will redirect visitors of the page to Google after 10 seconds:


< meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10;URL=https://www.google.com" >


To be able to place Meta Tags to your site, you will need to edit it's code.
