Optimizing Your Meta Tags

Optimizing Your Meta Tags

What they look like:

Description Meta:

"//meta name="description" content="This would be your description of what is on your page. Your most important keyword phrases should appear in this description.">"

Keywords Meta:

meta name="keywords" content="keywords phrase 1, keyword phrase 2, keyword phrase 3, etc.">"

Where they belong:

The correct placement for both meta tags is between the head> and /head> tags within the HTML the makes up your page. Their order does not really matter, but most people usually place the description first then the keywords meta.

Tag limits:

We recommend that your Keywords Meta not exceed 1024 characters including spaces.

We recommend that your Description Meta tag not exceed 250 characters including spaces.
