What are SEO meta tags?
SEO meta tags are HTML elements found in the <head> section of web pages written in HTML. Their purpose is to communicate important information to search engines that can be used during the indexing and ranking of web pages. The term “SEO meta tag” comes from HTML <meta> elements, however it also can include <link> and <title> tags.
How do meta tags help SEO?
Each tag has a different purpose and can have a different impact on rankings and appearance. For example the content found in a title tag can have substantial impact on the terms that a page ranks for in search engines. Whereas the content found in a meta description tag may only provide benefit to the appearance of the page within the search engine results. Each tag has a specific purpose and the content found in each are used differently.
The title tag is an HTML tag that defines the title of a web page. It appears in the browser’s title bar and is also used by search engines as the clickable link in search results. The title tag should be concise and descriptive, and include relevant keywords to help search engines understand what the page is about. It is an important factor in SEO as it can impact click-through rates and search engine rankings.
Meta Description Tag
The meta description tag provides a brief summary of the content on a web page. It appears in search engine results beneath the title tag and is also used by social media platforms when sharing links to the page. The meta description should be well-written, informative, and include relevant keywords. While it is not a direct ranking factor, a compelling meta description can entice users to click on the link, which can indirectly impact the page’s search engine ranking.
Canonical Link Tag
This tag is used to indicate the preferred version of a web page when there are multiple versions with similar content. It helps prevent duplicate content issues and ensures that search engines attribute all the ranking signals to the correct version of the page.
Meta Robots Tag
A Meta Robots Tag is an HTML tag that provides instructions to search engine robots on how to crawl and index a web page. It is used to control the indexing and follow behavior of a web page. The tag can be used to allow or disallow search engines from crawling and indexing a page, as well as to prevent search engines from following links on the page.
