How to add Separate Meta Tags for Individual Posts

Previously I have written on “Why and How to use Meta tags for Search Engine Optimization in Blogger“. Now through that method, you can although add meta tags for your entire blog, but not separately for each and every blog post. As you know, Google and other search engines now rank each page (article) separately, so it is very much needed to gain PageRanks for every post you write.

So follow this easy method, to add meta tags and keywords to each of your important post.
Log in to your Blogger.com account and go to “Layout” section.
Then click on “Edit HTML“, and then back up your present template first.

Then in the first 10-20 lines, find this :

<head>

Now immediately after this code, add these lines:

<b:if cond=’data:blog.url == “http://URL_OF_YOUR_NEW_POST.html”‘>
<META NAME=”keywords” CONTENT=”ENTER_KEYWORDS_SEPARATED_BY_COMMAS” />
<META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”INDEX,FOLLOW”/>
</b:if>

If you want you can add description and author meta tags too, simple add these two lines along with those above:

<META NAME=”description” CONTENT=”WRITE DESCRIPTION HERE” />
<META NAME=”author” CONTENT=”YOUR NAME” />

According to the instructions given in the blue lines, replace them with appropriate lines.

Hi Pankaj

Meta tags would not affect the loading speed so much…..

and you do not hav to use them for each and every post, but for those which you think are important !

Hi Pankaj

Welcome back, actually that's not at all a problem, you can check it here, that in Google search even titles from your blog are being displayed:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1B3GGGL_enIN287IN287&q=site%3Aetaxindia.org&btnG=Search

(Sitemaps and meta tags are just to make sure that your site is being well followed by search engines like Google…)

Hello pankaj

Only those titles are shown in google, which has been indexed by Google.
Now the frequency of indexing new posts depends on the popularity of the website/blog.
So getting new pages in Google searches is not so easy until and unless the blog is quite famous in google(acc to Google ranking system, the blog should have atleast PageRank 4 or 5, for quick indexing) presently your rank is 0-1.

Hi Lilian

I know this is quite boring and takes some time, but as we on Blogger platform, so we don’t have any other option 🙂

Hi Divya,
In your blog you wrote:

meta NAME=’ROBOTS’ content=’ALL’

What does ALL mean for the robots?

You don’t actually need those tags though, most searchbots ignore tags like that.

Dude, meta tags are never missed by Google, and as the most preferred search engine is of course Google, so meta tags are important !

do you mind adding examples for each blue line for beginners…………

View Comment

Hi Vikram,

The blue lines are themselves enough I guess,

For ex:
Instead of “ENTER_KEYWORDS_SEPARATED_BY_COMMAS”,

use this for a “Bakery related blog”

<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="bakery, bread, cookies, sugar, jam, butter, cream……..etc." />
