Auto Meta Tags for Blogger/BlogSpot Blogs

In this post I m going to describe meta-tags: How to add them to your blog.

UPDATE : Blogger has already introduced special editing tools for them in late March 2012, so they are covered separately. It applies to any type of meta-tag except the description-tag:  

Generally Meta tags are very important as it introduce the presence of your blog to search engines. In this post I m explaining you not only the meta-tags for your blog but I am going to reveal a special trick, so that this will generate automatic meta-tags for each and every page and articles of your website.


Blogger has rolled out an array of SEO features and now adding Meta Tags has become so easy. You can do it easily from the Blogger’s User Interface without doing much of Template Editing or pulling your hair. So here is how to do it

1 1. Log in to Blogger, go to setting -> Search Preferences and Enable Meta Tags. In the Text area give a 150 character description which will describe your Blog. This text might be used by Search engines when your Blog’s home page is displayed on Search Engines.


Its a simple code to automate the process of assigning meta description and keyword tags to every posts of your blog. Although not very effective but it may slightly improve the visibility of your pages in SERPs. These are the Dynamic meta tags, which have the same code but display different content for different pages. Actually it simply shows the blog name and title of the post in the meta description/keywords content.

Keep in mind that meta tags always goes between <head> and </head> tags

1. Log in to Blogger, go to Layout -> Edit HTML
and find (CTRL+F) this code in the template:

And immediately BEFORE/ABOVE it, paste this code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName + data:blog.title + data:blog.pageName' name='Description'/>
<meta expr:content='data:blog.pageName + data:blog.title + data:blog.pageName' name='Keywords'/>
