How to Add Meta Tags to Blogger

You will learn how to use meta tags in Blogger posts, pages, and the homepage. Adding meta tags and descriptions does have its own benefits in SEO.

What are meta tags?

Meta tags are the snippets that show the description of your post when searched on Google.

These little snippets of writing are what people do read below your post title in search results before they enter your site.

Does SEO benefit from Meta tags?

Google itself has announced that meta tags do not improve SEO, but SEO experts do recommend using meta tags.

SEO experts do claim that meta tags do increase SEO, despite what Google said, as mentioned above in this article.

Let’s prove those SEO experts right or wrong. That is why we have a bounce rate, and it affects your SEO.

What causes bounce rate are: poor meta tag description; post contents that don’t relate to the post title.

As you see, having a good meta tag description will reduce your bounce rate and boost your SEO.

Then SEO experts are not wrong, so I have proved them right. Google is just trying to let us know that meta tags will not miraculously push your site or posts to the top of search results.

Well, applying the techniques of an SEO expert is good because adding meta tags to your posts will help beat your competitors who failed to add meta tags to their posts.
