How to add Meta tags to blogger blogs and prevent duplicate meta descriptions

Meta tags are HTML or XHTML tags that describe your blog and tells the search engines what your blog is all about. Meta tags can be used to specify page description, keywords and much more. Many search engines use this information when indexing pages. In this tutorial, I am sharing with you, how to add meta tags to blogger blogs, while also preventing duplicate meta descriptions, which is a known problem with blogger blogs.

You must add the description and keywords meta tags to your blog , if you want to improve your blog SEO (Search Engine Optimization).  The tags are placed inside the head section of your blog template HTML. In description meta tag, you put a description of your blog, telling what your blog is about. In keyword meta tag you put in key words relevant to your blog content eg make money, blogging tips etc

So, How Do I Add the Tags to my blogger blog and prevent duplicate meta descriptions?

1.Sign in to your blogger dashboard, click the ‘Design/Layout’ button
2.Click on the ‘Edit html’ tab
3.Find this code using CTRL + F :

<b:include data=’blog’ name=’all-head-content’/>

4. Now add the code below just after the above code.

<meta content=’PUT KEYWORDS HERE SEPARATED BY COMMAS’ name=’keywords’/>
<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;’>
<meta content=’PUT BLOG DESCRIPTION HERE’ name=’description’/>
</b:if> 

The final result should be as shown below.

<b:include data=’blog’ name=’all-head-content’/>
<meta content=’PUT KEYWORDS HERE SEPARATED BY COMMAS’ name=’keywords’/>
<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;’>
<meta content=’PUT BLOG DESCRIPTION HERE’ name=’description’/>
</b:if>

5. SAVE the template.

DO NOT forget to put your keywords and description as stated in the codes above.

That’s all.
